Welcome to my website, and thanks for visiting.

My name is Ellie MacQueen and I am a person-centred counsellor based in the Black Isle, on the phone or online. I offer counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment.

Counselling offers you the opportunity to explore what's happening in your life without being judged.

I work with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed period, to enable them to enhance their life and to live it more fully.

I have a private and confidential counselling room in the quiet rural location of North Kessock on the Black Isle. There is convenient free parking here. I also offer sessions over the phone or online, so please contact me to enquire about this.

As a person-centred counsellor, I offer you a confidential helping relationship where you can explore life's difficulties in a safe and confidential space. I won't judge you. In today's world, we are all running at such a fast pace that sometimes it's difficult to catch up with ourselves. A lot of the time we are on "Automatic Pilot" - finding little time to listen to ourselves or to recognize our own needs. Everyone else is in the same boat, and as a result, it can often feel like no one is listening in today's chaotic way of life. Within my counselling approach, I offer you a space where you will be heard, and where you can hear yourself.

Counselling can help you to achieve better ways of coping with life's difficulties and to develop greater self-confidence in being able to deal with problems.

I am experienced in helping clients who have difficulties with :



Panic attacks

Relationship issues

Low self-esteem

Low self-confidence



Eating Disorders

Work problems


Trauma, and


This list is not exhaustive - if there's something specific that's troubling you, please contact me and we can talk about this in confidence.


As well as offering counselling and psychotherapy I am also a mindfulness practitioner and trainer. I work with people to help them reduce their stress and to develop ways of getting more out of life. You can read more about mindfulness below:
