About me

Hello! I’m Jackie Strachan

I am an experienced professionally qualified, registered counselling psychotherapist. I hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Person Centred Counselling (Distinction). I am also staff counsellor at ACIS Aberdeen. I offer private individual therapy on an ongoing or short term basis to adults of all ages from young to old. My consulting room is a comfortable, safe and confidential setting in Aberdeen’s West End.

Life brings us many challenges, and whether a client comes with specific issues or because they would like to understand themselves better, I seek to build a safe, trusting and empathic relationship in which clients can process difficult or painful feelings at their own pace in a thought provoking atmosphere.

The core of my approach is person-centred. This approach moves away from the idea of the therapist as an expert who can ‘fix’ you, trusting instead that you possess the innate capacity to fulfil your own potential given the right conditions. Finding the right therapist is crucial, so please come and meet me and see if it feels right for us to work together.
