Scott Houston

MSc & Clinical Diploma

Counsellor / Psychotherapist

 

My name is Scott Houston. I was born in Glasgow, Scotland where I grew up. Prior to arriving in Sydney, I spent 13 years in London where I trained as a Psychotherapist with a Masters Degree in Integrative Psychotherapy and a Clinical Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy.

My talking therapy approach offers empathy, understanding, is non-judgemental, and is conducted in an environment that is confidential and safe, as we sensitively explore your thoughts, feelings, relationships, family history and past traumas or deficits, to make sense of these issues, so that you feel relief from your distress and can once again have greater control of your own life.

I draw upon different schools of psychotherapy to establish how the past might be impacting the present and how current issues in your private or working life may be causing you difficulties or distress.

I work relationally, placing you – the client – at the heart of the process, and it is this dual relationship that can work as a transformative force for change, growth and healing to help you recover from whatever problems are troubling you.

The therapeutic relationship that you and I create, together, can be a source of support and comfort, while providing a place in which to make sense of these issues, challenge perceptions, and highlight unhelpful behavioural and thought patterns, so that you learn new ways of relating and ultimately be your authentic self to enjoy living again.

I have an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy, a Clinical Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy and I am a professionally registered member of the UKCP.
