Possibilities’ psychotherapy can help you heal, cope and find better ways forward
Are you struggling to cope? Is it due to depression, feeling down, nervousness, anxiety, stress, loss of a loved one, difficulty managing PTSD or trauma, childhood issues, relationship problems or something else entirely? Do you often pretend that you’re coping but inside you’re struggling with self-doubt, meaninglessness, emptiness, feeling disconnected, lonely, not good enough or not sure how to progress your life? Are you experiencing difficulty recovering from set-backs?
At Possibilities, our psychotherapy ‘pan’s for gold’ and is dedicated to helping you overcome the challenges you’re facing, providing you with a special place to gently explore your issues and, where appropriate, offer you the tools, techniques, and advice you need.
Beginning psychotherapy is an investment in yourself, your relationships and your future.
How does psychotherapy help?
At Possibilities, rather than using a “one size fits all” approach, we develop the psychotherapy around your specific needs using a range of tried and tested psychotherapy methods.
“We all grow up with the weight of history on us. Our ancestors dwell in the attics of our brains as they do in the spiralling chains of knowledge hidden in every cell of our body.” Shirley Abbott, Writer. The effects of the past is often a silent voter in your life.
“I have woven a parachute out of everything broken.” William Stafford, Poet.
“Healing may not be so much about getting better as about letting go of everything that isn’t you, all the expectations, all of the beliefs – and becoming who you are.” Karen Horney, Psychoanalyst.
Our psychotherapy can help you make more sense of what is happening. It offers an opportunity for creating and cultivating new options and possibilities to transcend the problems you’re facing, ushering you into better relationships with yourself, others, your life and your future.
“Psychotherapy is the art of finding the gold in the soul.” Robert Johnson, Psychoanalyst.
Are Possibilities psychotherapists qualified?
All of our psychotherapists are highly-qualified at least to postgraduate MA level and professionally registered UKCP members and highly experienced with between 10,000 and 40,000 hours of therapy. We provide a safe, non-judgemental and confidential setting where you can discuss your concerns, explore ways of learning from the challenges faced and thus, enhance your life.
How long do meetings last?
Appointments usually last for 50 minutes. We’ll continue the meetings as long as you feel it is helpful.
What if you’re not quite sure what’s wrong?
If you’re not quite sure what the problem is and uncertain about what might help. We can help you clarify the issues and explore the options.
“You are searching the world for treasure but the real treasure is yourself. If you are tempted by bread you will find only bread. What you seek, you become.” Rumi.
At the end of the first consultation meeting, we’ll discuss the next steps and whether or not you would like to begin therapy and arrange a therapy session. There is no obligation to begin therapy if it doesn’t feel right. The number of meetings required can vary greatly depending on your aims and the complexity and nature of your problems.
Allow us to reassure you 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 better 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.

Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of overcoming it.
