My name is Adisah Azumah with a counselling psychology background who have been practicing post qualification for over 4 years now with predominantly adults and young people in both community and school (primary and secondary schools age 9yrs to 16yrs) settings. I trained at Strathclyde University as a Person Centred Counsellor.  I am a member of both BACP and BPS.

 I am an experienced professional counsellor supporting my clients ‘be the best they can’. My practice is evidence based and adhere to the ethical framework of both BACP and BPS to enable you ‘breath ease’ again in times of challenging circumstances. My service might just be what you need to enable you through those difficult times.

I have extensive experience working with young people and families based in Glasgow from diverse ethnicity in school and community settings; working collaboratively with local government and statutory agencies.  I have supported young people, adults and families in either one-to-one and/or group sessions to find a handle to life challenges in a counselling relationship.


Client experience: Looked after and vulnerable children, women in transition (separation, divorce and new to Glasgow)

Issues: mild to moderate mental health problems (anxiety, depression), bereavement and loss, anger and stress management workshops, transitions, abuse (psychological, physical including sexual), homelessness,  traumatic experiences (CSA, FGM, and Forced marriage issues), eating disorder, loneliness, suicide, bullying, multiple-relationship complexities, racism, wider family issues (divorce, separation) and addictions.

Type of work:

Group work (family group, siblings group, young children weekend group work, parenting therapeutic group) to address specific issues above

One-to-one (face-to-face, telephone and skype)

Orientation: Person centred, integrative and play therapy

A client's journey shows how counselling might have helped find internal strength to ‘BreathEase’ again:

‘I had arrived in UK from a different culture and was suffering from acculturation shock, didn’t have and/or know anybody who I could speak to hence couldn’t sleep, run huge overburden phone bills to home country which further worsen my sleeplessness. When I was referred to you, I did not know what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised that after six sessions, I started sleeping better. Talking to you had been very helpful.'

The client was able to explore these catalogue of issues impacting on sleep:

‘Through this relationship, you supported me to cope with my bereavement.’

‘I had also felt confident to explore the effects of my divorce: feeling alienated for taking a decision best suited to me.’

‘Counselling empowered me to deal with a family member’s addiction to substance mis-use.'

And lastly ' counselling helped me to deal with postnatal depression’.

If these circumstances resonate with you, counselling might be just beneficial to you as it did for this client. 

I do however understand that it can be very difficult and you might just feel unable to step-out of your home; you can receive counselling on phone, via skype, and/or chat.  Contact me on: 07863591484 for a free 30 mins initial assessment and if we are suited for each other we contract to begin.
