Online and In-person Counselling

Baldovie House offers both face to face therapy sessions and online sessions. Many clients prefer face to face work and being in the same room as a therapist and for others that is difficult or inconvenient.

Both Kate and Jon have extensive experience of working online with all client presentations throughout the pandemic lockdowns and can now offer clients the choice of working in person or virtually.

When working in person we invite you to our beautiful setting by the Montrose Basin on the Forfar Road at Maryton, about 2 miles from the centre of Montrose. The location is very discreet and set back from the road and enhances the confidential nature of the work we do. In good weather we sometimes work outside in the gardens. Our objective is to create a calm, peaceful and tranquil space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings, securely.

If you prefer to work online the video conferencing technology which we use is Zoom we ask you to ensure that you have installed the Zoom App (free of charge) on the device of your choosing.

When working online it is essential that you take responsibility for your own confidentiality so that you can ensure that you are not over-heard or interrupted. We ask clients who work online to attend the session as if they were attending the session in person and we do provide some guidelines with regards to how to position your device so that we can simulate the experience of sitting opposite one another in a therapy session.
