About Me

My name is James McCluskey and I provide professional services based on Integrated Psychotherapeutic Counselling and also Hypnotherapy.

I am based just outside Kirkcaldy in a peaceful and private rural location.

I work on a one-to-one basis, using a collaborative, empathetic and non-judgmental style.

This helps clients identify what they really want from therapy and then I assist and empower them in exploring how they might achieve it.

Integrative approach

The Integrative approach draws on several different styles and methods rather than one approach fits all.

This means that I can personalise therapy to be tailored to the Client’s specific situation, using varied approaches drawing on Psychodynamics, person-centred, CBT, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis and other Humanistic Approaches, as well as Jungian Psychoanalysis and Motivational Approaches.

These approaches are often successful in dealing with depression, stress, anxiety, self-esteem, self-defeating behaviours/ habits, grief and loss, anger management and many other issues.

Listening without judging

The key thing here is that you will be listened to without being judged in a safe, confidential relationship and no one is going to try and “fix you” based on their own opinions.

I hope that I can be of help to you, and if you call me and there is no answer I am probably with a client, but I will return your call as soon as I can.

It doesn’t help you or others if you just bottle things up and suffer in silence. Help and support are here and available and I look forward to hearing from you when you are ready to take the first important steps to take back control of your life.
