You are probably looking at my website because you want some help.  Life can be challenging, and sometimes we all need a little support. You are thinking about the need to make some changes in your life, and you’re open to the idea of getting professional help to move forward. 

My name is Isobel Milne. I’m a fully qualified counsellor, hypnotherapist and coach based on the Isle of Arran in Scotland. I work with young people and adults of all ages, both one-to-one and in groups.  I can help you to address your problems and support you to change your outlook. You may also need support because of the impact the Covid 19 virus has had on your life, through illness or bereavement.

My Approach

I’m an integrative counsellor. That means I use a variety of different techniques and tools to suit your personality type and circumstances. I take a flexible approach to your therapy, be it meditative, creative or goal-led – or all of these at different times. I work with professional understanding, empathy, warmth and humour – within a holistic framework and a safe, supportive environment.

My first contact with clients is usually a chat over the phone, by e-mail or text. This helps me understand why you are considering counselling, and I explain what may be involved. There’s no obligation at this stage – in fact our first session will be free – but if you want to carry on, we will agree a time and place to meet for your next session.

Presently I am working in a mobile capacity on the island, and I also have my own counselling room in my home near Blackwaterfoot. 

I provide individual and group sessions in my clients’ homes, workplaces or in public spaces such as schools and village halls. For clients with disabilities, I am of course happy to come to you.

I have recently started to offer 4/5 day residential therapeutic/creative breaks in my home on this beautiful island, tailored to your requirements; whether you are stuck, or need to find out what you want in your life, or learn to let go of negative behaviours – or you might just want peace and tranquility, good food and sleep, making and writing!

Please contact me for further details.

If you are a key worker in the NHS or social care sector, I am currently providing counselling and/or hypnotherapy at a reduced rate to help you with anxiety, stress, loss and workload pressures. 


In all cases, the first session is free of charge. Therapy sessions for individual clients are then £50 per hour, with concessions available where appropriate. If I am coming to you for sessions in your own home, there is a small distance related charge for fuel.

Fees for group sessions and workshops are by arrangement, depending on requirements and location.
