Welcome to Bravetherapy.co.uk - Counselling and Psychotherapy with John Maguire


Welcome to the ‘Brave Therapy Edinburgh’ practice website.

Why ‘Brave Therapy’?

Because it takes courage to confront your issues and your behaviours. Counselling and Psychotherapy should always be gentle and rewarding but it is also hard work too.
