About

I am a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist based in the Glasgow area. I offer sessions using a collaborative approach in a confidential, compassionate environment to support you through a difficult time in your life. CBT is a talking therapy that uses a range of methods, including psycho-education, to increase your awareness of the issue and to develop the skills to change your thinking and behaviour, enabling real life changes. I believe that working together is the key to success and throughout our journey we will focus on your goals and aspirations in order to find solutions that will enable you to move forward.
I have a background in mindfulness and find that this calming approach works well within therapy. I aim to create a safe space where you can relax and de-stress. In my practice I have experience of working with clients with a range of issues including; anxiety disorders and depression, low self esteem, anger and stress management, trauma and PTSD.
It can be difficult to find help and I understand that seeking the support of a therapist can be a daunting task, but you have taken the first step and I look forward to working with you in the future. I am a member of COSCA (Counselling & Psychotherapy in Scotland) and I follow their ethical guidelines and standards of practice.
