Alison MacGregor MBACP 
Integrative Counsellor

Life is often challenging. A recent event may have left you feeling unable to cope; you may be experiencing difficulties in your relationships, or you may not know what is wrong, but have a nagging sense of not being okay. Whatever it is you bring to counselling, you no longer have to face it alone.

As an integrative therapist, I draw on different therapeutic approaches. This means that I can be flexible, adapting my approach to best suit the individual needs of each client. My aim is to provide a safe, confidential environment in which you will feel heard without fear of being judged, and where you will feel valued and accepted for who you are.

I have experience of helping clients work through a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, stress, self-harm, bereavement and loss.

Neal Edwards MBACP 
Integrative Counsellor

I offer a respectful, compassionate and confidential space to support people with short-term challenges and longer-term personal change. I am trained to help you understand anxieties and problems in your life in a way that makes sense to you. You may be experiencing difficulties related to events happening in your life at the moment, or deep-seated problems that have been with you for a long time.

I believe that exploring difficulties and gaining a better understanding of ourselves can help us in changing problematic patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving, and help us to live more peaceful and fulfilling lives. Exploring our experiences and responses can allow us to regain a sense of freedom and spontaneity and help us to manage relationships and live the life we want. 

I am a fully trained and registered counsellor and psychotherapist in Integrative Psychotherapy and Transactional Analysis, and I use these methodologies to help you understand yourself and your relationships with others.

Let’s Talk it over



I went to Barry when I was in a very low place. What a kind, patient and soothing person he is. He helped me to understand why I felt the way I did and the process helped me to make changes in my life. He is empathetic, supportive and honest. I wouldn’t hesitate to see him again if I needed to ( and I may well need to!) knowing that this service is there is brilliant. I would highly recommend Barry.


Barry has really helped me take stock of my life and to solve important issues. I would highly recommend him as he takes time to listen as well as gives helpful advice. After 12 sessions, I now put his advice into practise every day and I am feeling a much happier person.


I find sessions with Barry extremely helpful. He has a relaxed personality and is very easy to talk to. His knowledge of anxiety is wide-ranging – certainly better than previous psychologists I have spoken to. The advice he has given me has always been useful and easy to put into practice. In a nutshell I’d recommend him to anyone.


I am a couple of sessions into my time working with Barry and I am really looking forward to future sessions. Barry is a really calming influence who is guiding me through my issues with support, understanding and a deep knowledge of human behaviour. If you are thinking of seeking help /support I highly recommend Barry. Great communication and very welcoming has helped me with my needs”

Barry has really helped me take stock of my life and to solve important issues. If I needed to see him he would always manage to give me an appointment.”

Barry has been an inspiration. I had visited a few therapists before starting with Barry, it was refreshing to find a therapist who actually listened and empathised and not just following text-book responses. I found his feedback and I received counselling from Barry Carruthers when I felt I was at my lowest point, he was Amazing with me and totally got how I was feeling.

Barry gave me little things to try at home if life was getting to much which helped me so much. If I needed to see him he would always manage to give me an appointment.

I would 100% recommend Barry if you are feeling you need to talk.
Thank you Barry from the bottom of my heart.
Life is good for me now and I’m loving life, you helped me achieve that xx

Barry has excellent insight which I value, is a great listener and has been a great guide, aiding me in navigating through the issues I face.

Hi my name is Barry Carruthers. I have a wealth of experience and knowledge to support you through difficult times in your life that you are experiencing.
As a therapist I tend to work openly and directly, this enables me to help you focus on finding a positive solution to where you would like to be in your life.

I believe that good therapy should be time limited, as this allows you to move through the therapeutic process to achieve the best outcomes for you.
