Bill Paterson

Counselling in Dunfermline

Sometimes we can feel a bit lost or stuck. If anxiety and depression visit, it can be difficult to make sense of what is going on, what to do or when to do it.

I can help you. I’ve spent a lot of time learning how to connect, listen and gently support clients to explore and unravel what is troubling.

I have a Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy from Persona.

I’ve also seven years experience of working 1-2-1 with clients . Click here for testimonials

I provide one-to-one counselling for adults face-2-face, telephone and via Zoom

Health and well-being training courses/workshops for organisations

Dr Bill Paterson regularly works with paramedics, doctors, nurses, teachers, young people, and with police officers and veterans. Training courses/workshops are informed by techniques and attitudes drawn from years of work with the needs of organisations.

Even before COVID, it was stated that “a global epidemic of burnout had been diagnosed” . Since COVID I have been invited to work with both individuals and organisation to develop self-care plans to avoid burnout or compassion fatigue

We provide one-day and weekend workshops on self-care, managing change, mindfulness and compassion to introduce staff to techniques and attitudes to enable skilful reflection and decision-making, self-care planning and connection.

Why contact us?

Do you often feel a sense of dis-ease at being in your day and living your life?

For example you might experience stress, anxiety, sadness, apathy, emotional outburst, exhaustion, loneliness, over thinking, feeling isolation, catastrophizing  etc.

Are you looking for space to stop, notice what is actually going on and respond with appropriate action?

You are not alone. Modern life places significant demands on our time, attention and energy. We live hectic lives with competing demands and expectations that often leave us feeling exhausted, stress, anxious or with low mood.

Be Mindful Fife offers 1-2-1 counselling and coaching, plus health and well-being training courses/workshops for organisations in the public, private and third sector of Scotland.

Providing the space in our busy lives to discover the barriers to living a life with space, grace, purpose and meaning.

Providing the space in our busy lives to discover the barriers to living a life with space, grace, purpose and meaning.

“Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.” 

― Louise Erdrich (recipient of 2021 Pulitzer Prize)
