My Motto

To support you with whatever issue you need help with, in a way that you feel is right for you.

Counsellor based in East Kilbride for adults, children and teens

At the moment I am able to offer sessions face to face, as well as online. It means the service is open to anyone who is interested, despite of location. When meeting in person there are a few safety issues put in place, to increase security.

If you choose to meet me online, what you need is a space where you can be uninterrupted, feel safe and also to download Zoom. Payments for the counselling can be made via bank transfer. Please contact me to discuss what option would work for you.

Sometimes we feel like things are too much and we do not know what to do. As a qualified Counsellor I can help. I support individuals to deal with all kinds of issues, such as bereavement, anxiety, trauma, depression, abuse, stress, panic attacks, anger issues and many more. You will receive a £5 discount on the first session and can have an appointment either daytime or evening.

Whatever your issues are or however you feel, I can help you see it clearer. You can start to discover that you can make other choices. You decide what is right for you, but sometimes that can be easier to see with someone not personally involved in what is happening for you. I offer a non-judgemental view and support people of all ages with all kinds of issues.

For children and teenagers, I can help them find a place within where they feel okay and are able to handle situations better, to feel stronger. I tailor the service to suit the individual, to have time for both talking and relaxing if they want to.

“I highly recommend Agnetha. Easy to talk to, professional, with an ability to get to the heart of an issue. Her skilful approach and understanding helped me to become aware where my problems were and I was able to work with them. She helped me to see the whole picture. I was a mess, my life was a mess. I was used and abused. Thanks to Agnetha, I am not a victim anymore. I am a survivor, a strong, independent and smiling woman once again. I wish I had found Agnetha years ago.”

“Counselling has turned my life around, for the better. I would recommend ABM Counselling 100%. Now I feel that I matter. I have better control of my mind. I can take a step back and evaluate a situation rather than instantly react to it.”

Lynne, 25, East Kilbride Date of Posting: 07 March 2013

“Counselling helped me deal with something I had avoided a long time. It also helped me see how I could do things differently and it made me feel better with myself. I feel stronger.”

Catherine, 54, East Kilbride Date of Posting: 22 February 2013

“It has helped me immensely. Listening to what I was saying, which I did not do before, and seeing what I was doing. My grief had become so immense that I could not cope with it. Now I can certainly cope a lot better, speak about it and I feel a lot more at ease with myself. Thank you!”

“I was so unhappy and did not know why. I was crying all the time. Counselling helped me see what was wrong and I was able to do something. I feel a lot better.”

John, 46, East Kilbride Date of posting: 14 January 2014

“It has helped me relax and be a bit calmer in stressful situations. It has helped me be a bit more positive. It has made me realise that I need to be OK so I am more useful for others. I would recommend ABM Counselling because it has helped me deal with things better.”

David, 45, Strathaven Date of Posting: 01 December 2012

“I didn’t really know what to expect, but it helped me understand that I can’t fix everything but I can try a different way. I recommend ABM Counselling if you want to better your life.”

About the Counsellor

9-year old child, East Kilbride, September 2021

“It’s been really helpful. You have showed me different coping behaviours. Some are easy to take on, others are not so easy, but they can be used later on and they work. That has been helpful.”

Parent, East Kilbride, September 2021

“My 9 yr old child has been attending weekly sessions with Agnetha to help learn coping mechanisms for anger and frustration issues. The sessions have allowed my child to develop various skills and methods to manage feelings, which has positively changed our family dynamics and reduced the number of confrontations (& shouting matches!).
Agnetha’s positive, engaging, child friendly manner creates a happy environment for children to feel safe and discuss their feelings openly.
Thanks so much for all your help and advices Agnetha.”

Therapeutic Counselling in East Kilbride - Knowledge gives you choice!

In therapeutic counselling you will become more aware of what is causing your difficulties. You will start to see what is happening for you and why. This will show you have choices. You can explore what you can do to feel better.

The more aware you become the more you can look at what your options are and make decisions on what you want to do. This process empowers you and puts you more in charge of your situation - rather than the anger, anxiety or hopelessness having control over you.

Face to face or online sessions

We can either meet in person or online. If you have issues you want to work through, and you choose Zoom, what you need is a space where you can be uninterrupted, feel safe and able to speak freely. You can download Zoom for free, Payments for the counselling can be made via bank transfer. Contact me to discuss what kind of sessions work best for you.
