Building a reputation of expertise
First Psychology Scotland operates bespoke psychological centres throughout the country, including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee, Inverness and the Scottish Borders. Each centre offers a range of psychological services including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), counselling, psychotherapy, relationship / couples counselling, and coaching in a professional and welcoming environment.
Owner and managing director Professor Ewan Gillon founded the Edinburgh Psychology Centre in 2006 after identifying a gap in the market for high quality, user friendly and effective psychology and therapy services for professionals. First Psychology’s practitioners now see over 200 clients. Professor Gillon is a Chartered and HPC registered Psychologist and the founder and director of Glasgow Caledonian University’s D.Psych programme in Counselling Psychology, the only programme of its kind in Scotland.
Niche Works has worked with First Psychology Scotland since 2011. The key aim of activities has been to bring psychological services to the consumer and help break down the negative myths and perceptions behind services which have been previously unavailable to the general public without a GP referral and considered only for those with mental health issues.
Activities have included a range of marketing and PR projects from regular strategic marketing clinics, branding and event management and marketing to media relations, profile raising and media and marketing training.
