Jennifer Brown - Director
I am a qualified Psychodynamic counsellor, with a Diploma from the Garnethill
Centre Glasgow, also a Diploma in Couple Counselling from Relationship Scotland
(Napier University), and I am deeply passionate about supporting people to change, to become more empowered to deal with problems life throws up, be they long-term deep-seated, or sudden issues apparently from nowhere, and above all to live the fullest life they can.
I work with anxiety, depression, stress, and lack of self-confidence and drive, I specialise in working with individuals who have experienced trauma; childhood abuse, abusive relationships, traumatic events, or loss. I work primarily from a Psychodynamic perspective, taking a person’s current issues within the context of their whole story, and using a variety of techniques and approaches including Internal Family Systems. I have studied with Frank Anderson and the IFS Institute as well as other CPD providers to keep up to date with the latest news and techniques in the world of therapy.
A large part of my work is with couples who are struggling with communication problems or lifestyle issues, or indeed the effects of previous, or early trauma on the relationship. I take clients where they are and provide them with a safe space to unpack what has been going on for them. We work together to understand the past and work out the best way forward for them.

Connie Honeyman- Psychodynamic Counsellor
Connie received her Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling from the Garnethill Centre in Glasgow in 2019. She has since worked in the specialist area of Perinatal Mood Disorders, helping new and experienced parents adjust to the mental and emotional challenges of pregnancy and parenthood. Her work with this client group has provided extensive experience of depression, stress and anxiety, panic and panic disorders, early-life trauma, relational abuse, sexual abuse, co-dependency, self and self-esteem, bereavement, loss, and grief.
In 2021, in response to the covid crisis, she achieved the Certificate in Online Therapy through The Online Therapy Institute (0TI). This allowed her to offer ongoing distance support to perinatal clients isolated by lockdown restrictions. She is thus equally comfortable working with clients face-to-face, by video link or by telephone.
Connie is a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adheres to their high standards for ethics and professionalism. Her primary approach to counselling is psychodynamic, which means helping the client discover the significance of early-life experiences and relationships for present-day problems. She understands how challenging this can be for clients, and believes that by building a safe, supportive, and nurturing relationship, the client can develop the confidence to confront and process long-buried, difficult feelings. Connie is also passionate about encouraging self-acceptance, self-love, and self-care in her clients.
Connie’s past work experience is in Organisational Learning and Development and Further and Higher education. During a career break in 2011, she achieved an MLitt in Creative Writing from the University of Glasgow and enjoys writing short fiction for pleasure. She also recognises the cathartic nature of creative writing and is keen to develop this as a therapeutic tool.
