More Detail

Over 12 Years Post-Accreditation Experience

Hi. I am Sally Silvers. I'm an accredited and registered counsellor and psychotherapist - I help individuals and couples with their mental wellbeing. I hold private and public sector experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist. My interest includes depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and relationship problems, as well as the specific issues experienced by gay and heterosexual men and women.

What to Expect

An initial assessment appointment helps you to see if you feel comfortable with me, discuss what concerns you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and determine if therapy could help you. Please use a contact option on the right to arrange an initial assessment appointment in Aberdeen.

Client Centred Therapy

Client centred therapy concentrates on appreciating and supporting you. It facilitates your openness about the worries you experience. Client centred therapy aims to help you find your own answers.


Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You decide which issue regarding your early years and/or adulthood you explore. An objective of counselling is to enable you to speak about a difficulty and discover a way forward which is appropriate for you.

Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR)

Eye movement desensitisation reprocessing guides your eye motions to affect how your brain processes information. The technique attempts to reprocess your frozen distressing memories. The aim of EMDR is to desensitise your painful memories.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) indicates eye movement desensitisation reprocessing for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Humanistic Therapy

Humanistic therapy focuses on valuing you. It sees you as a whole human being and emphasises your unique growth. Humanistic therapy aims to help you realise your autonomy.


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the difficulties you face. It considers your ideas, emotions and significant events in your history. Psychotherapy aims to help you develop or find appropriate ways of managing.
