’Enhanced’ Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for Anxiety and Anxiety Counselling

Are you troubled by worry, doubt and feeling on edge? Anxiety can easily get out of hand. Excessive worrying, social anxiety, health anxiety, trauma, stress and panic attacks can hold you back. Our specialist psychotherapists and counsellors provide ‘enhanced’ Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for anxiety and counselling to help you manage anxiety and reclaim your life.

’Enhanced’ Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for Depression and Depression Counselling

Are you feeling down, stuck and experiencing difficulty coping with everyday life? Depression is not a ‘thing’, it is a complex and poorly understood inter-play of problems and meanings. Our ‘enhanced’ cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) sessions target what’s depressing you, show you how to manage issues, help you build resilience, better prepare you for future challenges and help you create a life worth living.

Couples Counselling and Marriage Guidance

Are you experiencing problems in your couple relationship related to communication, arguments, betrayals, affairs, trust, intimacy problems, relationship staleness, feeling rejected, alone, stuck and unloved? Possibilities Couples Therapy services offer powerful ways of helping you create the loving relationship you need. Our couple’s counsellors appreciate every marriage and relationship has its own unique challenges.

Marriage Counselling

Is your marriage struggling? With almost half of all marriages in the UK ending in divorce, marriage counselling is becoming an increasingly popular option for couples who want to successfully resolve their relationship problems rather than opt for separation. Our marriage guidance counsellors will work closely with you to help you create a relationship that works better for you and brings the spark back.

Loss and Bereavement Counselling

Are you struggling with loss, grief and bereavement? Have you lost a loved one, relative, friend, pet or job and experiencing difficulty coping? A grief reaction is a natural part of loss and bereavement. With our new therapeutic methods, our counsellors can support you and help you adapt to the loss whilst maintaining connection to what you hold precious.

Anger Management CBT Counselling and Aggression Management

Are you often frustrated, easily irritated, tense, angry and aggressive? Do you have difficulty controlling, bottling up or expressing anger? Is your anger hurting your relationships and you? In addition to techniques for regaining control of anger and aggression, we can help you change your relationship with anger and attend to any underlying issues.

And the day came when the risk (it took) to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

What our previous clients have said

I experienced severe trauma and developed a Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder which meant I wasn’t coping well with day to day life. With CBT Therapy at Possibilities, I’ve made a number of positive changes. It was a struggle at times but my psychotherapist helped me feel safe and capable as we worked through things. I’m now back at work and my confidence is growing. I have a life again. I’m so glad I took that scary first step and called. If you’re feeling unsure, I highly recommend you call them too.

– JT, Aberdeenshire: Trauma Counselling Aberdeen.

I thought my life wasn’t worth living. My depression convinced me I was worthless and useless and my situation was hopeless. If you’re feeling something similar, go to Possibilities. They made an enormous difference to my life and they can do the same for you.

– AD, Aberdeen: Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy for Depression.

My relationship with my partner has vastly improved. We’re more able to communicate and we’re spending more time together and having fun! I can’t believe we were on the verge of separating when we contacted Possibilities as a last resort. I can’t thank them enough.

– SMcM, Aberdeenshire: Couples Counselling Aberdeen.


Possibilities was outstanding. I’ve overcome my anxiety and have the tools to keep it at bay should I need them in the future.

– MK, Aberdeen: CBT Therapy for Anxiety.

Arrange a ‘taster’ pre-therapy ‘initial consultation’ session to discover if therapy with us will help

Arrange an initial consultation, a ‘taster’ pre-therapy’ meeting with one of our friendly psychotherapists to discuss your concerns, obtain a better sense of what’s involved in therapy and how we can help. It’s much, much more than ‘just talking’. You can then make a more informed decision about whether or not to begin therapy.

We have more possibilities available in each moment than we realise.

Overthinking in Imagination Land

Do you find yourself thinking ahead? Do you often describe yourself as an over-thinker? The trouble with overthinking and thinking ahead is that it seems to rob us of the present moment. However, apart from the loss of being able to appreciate the present, the issue...

The Land of Possibilities

How do we get to the ‘land of possibilities’? Does anyone have a map? Well, perhaps not a tangible map, but perhaps a few clues to help us explore and imagine who and what's there. I imagine it would be a land full of ‘appreciative noticer’s’, overcomers and...
