About Us

New Horizons is a counselling and therapeutic environment based in West Lothian. New Horizons focuses on helping adults, adolescents and young people work through emotional or behavioural issues by focusing on a person centred approach. We offer a confidential, non judgemental and supportive environment for our clients.

Many clients who use New Horizons initially engage in our service because they feel upset or confused about aspects in their lives and are seeking clarity or a way to cope with what they are feeling. Our supportive approach focuses on helping our clients to work through trauma until they feel they no longer need to use our services.

Contacting a counsellor for the first time can be a daunting process so we offer a free, no obligation initial half hour assessment which enables the client to determine whether or not counselling  is the best route for them.

What is Counselling?

Counselling is a therapeutic vehicle designed to help clients work through trauma and upset by helping the client achieve clarity of thought and set small, manageable goals in order to move on from their challenges.

Counselling can take many forms, but the core focus of New Horizons is to remain empathetic and non judgemental of our clients at all times. Often clients who contact New Horizons are confused or upset and are unable to face their challenges on their own.

We analyse a variety of factors to determine the route cause of the issues which can include patterns of behaviour, childhood and past relationships or current environment. The direction that therapy takes is largely dependent on the individual client. The main purpose of counselling is to help the client gain clarity and  to assist with their recovery in the future.
