Tracey Johnston, Clinical Director/Psychotherapist:


Important News: The Covid-19 situation means that we all have to do our bit to flatten the curve; therefore, at Possibilities we have now completely shifted to online appointments mostly conducted via Skype. We ask that you keep an open mind and roll with this for now. Once people make the adjustment, Skype works very well.

We will revert back to mostly face to face appointments when things improve. Please remember, 'this too shall pass'.


Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Possibilities Psychotherapists workshop: 'Co-creating the Dialogical Self using the 'Mirrors of Possibility' Therapeutic Method' at the 'International Conference of the Dialogic Self' in Barcelona has been postponed to next Summer 2021.

Possibilities psychotherapists had the pleasure of presenting two workshops at the recent IFTA World Therapy Congress in the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) from 28th to 30th March 2019. The World Therapy Congress was attended by hundreds of psychotherapists from 38 different countries around the world. Possibilities was the only service from North East Scotland presenting.

Our first workshop on 28th March 2019 was entitled - 'A New 'U' in Systemic Bereavement: Undigested Grief, Embodied Stories, Spirituality and CMM' featuring some of the amazing outcomes our clients have achieved using our newly developed approaches.

Our second workshop on 29th March 2019 was called - 'Jazzing with the 'Mirrors of Possibility': Co-creating Magic Moments in Couple Therapy.' This highlighted some new therapeutic techniques we are developing for couples counselling and psychotherapy with individuals.

It was a wonderful Conference. We learned so many new therapy methods and techniques that will greatly benefit our clients and we also made many fantastic new friends.
