Soul Restore Counselling is a service offered to Peebles with funding support from St Andrews Leckie. Counsellors with the service have a Diploma in Counselling recognised by the professional body COSCA. Our Counsellors are of Christian faith, and our service is open to all faiths and none.
We provide one to one sessions with a Counsellor, with each session lasting around 50 minutes. After an initial meeting, you may be offered regular hourly sessions on a set day per week. The counselling process may last between 6 – 18 sessions on average, and the number of sessions will be reviewed at session 6 by you and your Counsellor. The client commitment to this process is key and the process requires regular attendance. There is complete confidentiality unless there is a risk of harm.
- A place to explore present or past problems
- Allowing you to reach a new perspective
- Making your own decisions
- Growth in Self Awareness
- Self forgiveness and forgiving others
- Laying down of burdens
Counselling may help with physical symptoms of depression and/or anxiety by talking things through. Clients speak of feeling more genuinely ‘Who they are’ as the layers are uncovered.
At times it can lead to change, in your attitudes, thinking, or lifestyle choices. It is not advice or anyone else’s opinion.
To see if Counselling is for you, contact Soul Restore Counselling and make an enquiry.
Who Goes For Counselling?
Just about anyone. It does not have to be when you are ill or finding it hard to function. However you may be struggling emotionally and a situation, relationship, or past event seem overwhelming.
People come for Counselling for all sorts of reasons:
- Low self esteem
- Dealing with Anger
- Work related problems
- Relationship difficulties
- Past Trauma or abuse

St Andrews Leckie have subsidised this Counselling service as part of their commitment to the local community.
We do encourage donations to help cover the costs of running the service, an amount would be agreed at the initial meeting per session. We will work with those who cannot donate.
