About William Macaulay

Counsellor & Psychotherapist

Conveniently located in Wembley north of the river and Ardross south of the river, I offer professional counselling and psychotherapy services to individuals covering a broad range of personal and relationship issues - see details.

Counselling Approach

My genuine care for others drives my passion for helping individual adults and young people to achieve their goal to live a more fulfilled and enriched life.


I firmly believe that the majority of people are motivated to grow and change, and that counselling is a helpful way of obtaining the support and skills needed to achieve long-lasting positive personal growth.


I will encourage and assist you to become self-aware and find your own solutions as I strongly believe that you are the expert in your own life.


In my practice, I draw upon a range of evidence-based approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Gestalt Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapy and Person-Centred Therapy.


My approach is warm, understanding and respectful, and I offer you a safe and non-judgemental environment to explore your struggles and concerns.
