Dr Shirley Moore (she/her)
I offer an individual approach to therapy, as every client is an individual with different ways of thinking and reacting to things. Different people seek counselling for different reasons. Perhaps you are feeling down or depressed or anxious. Perhaps you have a conflict you wish to resolve or an aspect of your life that you wish to change. I will not tell you what to do but I will offer you a non-judgemental space where you can explore the areas of your life which you choose to bring to our sessions and come to your own decisions in your own time. I may challenge some of your assumptions or perceptions on occasion, in order to deepen understanding and foster new insights. I will be guided by you as the expert on yourself.
I am a retired doctor and worked in the NHS for ten years before changing career. My special interest areas include medical professionals, counselling trainees, whistleblowers, people experiencing bullying and people with chronic pain or long term health conditions.

Dianne Foy diannefoycounselling.co.uk
My name is Dianne Foy and I am a person-centred counsellor based in Houston, Renfrewshire. Prior to training as a counsellor I worked for many years in large public sector organisations, so I have a good understanding of how the working environment can have a significant impact on neurodivergent people.
I became aware of my own neurodivergence (autistic with some traits of ADHD) later on in life, so I am passionate about supporting clients whose own experiences have been minimised or misunderstood. It is all too easy to feel like the person on the outside looking in, the only person who hasn’t been given the rules of the interactions others take for granted.
Clients are never one-dimensional with only one aspect to their identity or experience, so the intersectional nature of these experiences is also a main area of interest for me. Grief, bereavement, gender, sexuality, relationships, trauma, abuse, life transitions, disability and chronic illness, anxiety and depression are just some of the areas I have experience working with.
I aim to offer a counselling relationship that is very much tailored to the individual. The therapy relationship can only work if we are able to be our genuine selves, so I will do all I can to facilitate this.
I offer face to face, telephone and Zoom counselling on weekday evenings, so I am able to work around clients’ commitments through the day.
I offer a free initial chat by telephone or Zoom, so please get in touch if you’d like to discuss working together. For the most up-to-date details of my availability, please check my website.
