What therapies do we offer?

Possibilities offers a range of therapies ‘enhanced’ with the latest developments in psychology research and psychotherapy methods.


Perhaps the most important part of any therapy is having the space to talk. Counselling allows you to speak your mind without fear of being judged. Once you’ve explained what issues you’re facing, we can work together with you to move things forward

Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT)

CBT is one of the most effective therapies available for addressing anxiety, depression, PTSD and panic attacks. By using a mixture of methods and therapeutic techniques, you can learn to better manage your emotions, thoughts, body symptoms and behaviours. At Possibilities, we offer ‘enhanced’ forms of CBT to increase its effectiveness and reduce problems with relapse.


‘Psychotherapy is similar but very different to counselling. Possibilities qualified and registered psychotherapists will have achieved a much higher level of post-graduate training than counsellors. Psychotherapy is usually more deeply focussed on resolving specific problems and underlying issues, rather than just listening and reflecting back. All of our therapists at Possibilities are qualified psychotherapists with many years of experience.’

Life coaching

Finding our way in life is not always straightforward and simple. Careers, family life, relationships, or emotional issues all arise and can interfere with you becoming the person you are. Our life coaching works with you to reduce the pressure of the problems you’re facing and finding better solutions.

Positive psychology

Positive psychology covers many methods for building generatively on your strengths, potentials and possibilities. Positive psychology offers new mind-sets and ways of engaging with and drawing out growth, healing, insight and transformation from challenging, problematic and difficult life experiences. Often these contain the seeds of transformation.

Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR uses specialized techniques to focus on negative emotions, memories and beliefs associated with traumatic experiences. EMDR can be an effective way of addressing PTSD with a higher success rate for single trauma situations. It complements CBT well.

Child therapy

Counselling for children requires specialised forms of therapy designed specifically for them and their developmental level and emotional needs. Possibilities effective therapy engages with children’s imagination, resourcefulness and sense of wonder, in line with their needs and preferred vision for their lives and future. Our therapy is designed to work with children between the ages of 5-11 years old.

Therapy for teenagers and young people

For distressed teenagers, the counselling we offer is carefully adjusted to the unique needs of each young person. Adolescents have to cope with many changes: in their bodies, sexuality, cognitive abilities, emotional development, mood, behaviours, relationships, social lives and other complexities and demands, alongside struggles and confusions about identity issues and the nature of their relationships with themselves and others. Our confidential psychotherapy aims to gently help teenagers overcome their varied stress and worries, challenges and potentials.

Next Steps

Be reassured that professional help is at hand. We offer services that aim to reduce the fear and uncertainty about getting help. Arrange an initial consultation ‘taster’ session to discuss your needs, in privacy and comfort, to obtain a sense of how we help and for if this is the right direction for you.

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.
