Sometimes life throws us a curved ball and we can face difficult and challenging situations which at first may seem daunting even overwhelming. I genuinely believe however that we all have the capacity to face these situations and with the right kind of help can eventually come to terms with them. If you are reading this then I'm guessing you are probably looking to change or resolve a situation in your life that's troubling you.I believe that the first step to making a change is to acknowledge that you are ready to seek help, if this describes how you're feeling then please read on.

Hi and thank you for visiting my profile. You have just taken the bravest first step to working towards help through counselling. Sometimes we face challenges in our daily lives which can be very stressful, frustrating and difficult to deal with. Turning to someone who you don't know can be a very daunting thought. However, counselling offers a beautiful and safe space with no judgement. I offer a confidential and most importantly a safe space for us to explore and discuss any difficulties being faced. I will support and listen with empathy and respect. Together we can work towards a better future.

Hello, my name is Hannah. Sometimes life gets messy and overwhelming. Stress, work, relationship issues, grief, loss, health issues, anxiety, feeling low are things we can all experience at times. Sometimes those around us don’t offer us the support we need, or we worry we would burden them or be judged by them if we opened up about our problems. Counselling can be a way of helping us through life’s twists and turns.

I understand that it is not always easy to express our worries with those around us. There are times we feel overwhelmed, unable to manage difficulties in our lives, and thus finding ourselves needing a safe space to explore our feelings and thoughts, be heard, and understood. There is no shame in getting help so thank you for taking care of yourself and your mental health by seeking therapy.

I work with people experiencing a wide range of mental health problems which are creating issues in their lives. These include different types of anxiety, low or fluctuating mood, worry and rumination, stress, problems in relationships with others and issues resulting from historic or more recent trauma. Focus is given to understanding the nature and origins of problems and how change can occur. Currently, as a result of being unable to provide face to face therapy due to covid-19, I am working remotely via secure video and/or telephone conferencing.

It's tough opening up to someone but we, via the therapeutical alliance, can create a safe space of trust where there is confidentiality, no judgment and that the client feels comfortable sharing. Here are some testimonials from previous clients for you to ponder: Social anxiety- My gran nearly fainted when she saw me ask someone who works in a shop a question, something I've never done in my life before. Grief- My therapist has helped me as I was feeling lonely and it cheered me and made me realise that I do have a future by myself with friends and family to support me. Low self esteem- I've realised I'm stronger than I thought.

The idea of my approach is an integrative one: I've studied, and I'm qualified to deliver, a mixed modality of therapies to address client issues. From psychodynamic active listening and using a safe space to get things out in the open, or perhaps using CBT techniques to address something specific, either way - I'm equipped to help guide you through what it is that is troubling you, or holding you back, from moving forward.

The way things are now, is not the way they will always be. If I could help with one thing it would be instilling hope. As a Counselling Psychologist I have a training which has focused on both the evidence base of psychology and the supportive nature of the counselling relationship. If we were working together my initial aims would be to establish a trusting, confidential relationship, and to find out from you what you want from therapy. From there we would make a plan to address your difficulties, and work together on this in sessions, but you might also expect some between session work.

I have extensive experience of working with clients who have experienced sexual or emotional abuse, sometimes within an institutional context. This may involve working with PTSD, where flashbacks, nightmares or unwanted memories are present. I can offer a safe, supportive space to work through these difficult experiences and find coping strategies. I also work with anxiety and depression, relationship issues and achieving your true potential within a study/work context. I am also very interested in developing creativity especially within the arts. Please note that I am currently only working with UK-based clients.

Hello! My name is Emma-Louise and I am an integrative therapist trained primarily in Person-Centered and Holistic therapies. I believe that therapy should be a safe place where you can come as the human you are and speak to another human without being labelled, diagnosed or dictated to. We all experience our life so uniquely, that it's impossible to put anyone into a neatly fitted box, that's where I want to work with you to explore your authentic self.

Originally from Manchester, I now live in Glasgow. I started my counselling training in London on Goldsmith University’s Graduate Certificate in Humanistic & Psychodynamic Counselling, before completing the University of Strathclyde’s MSc, Counselling & Psychotherapy. At Strathclyde I trained in Person-Centred Therapy and this forms the basis of my practice. I have experience working with a wide variety of people, I’m particularly familiar with autism and neurodiversity, and I work with all kinds of issues including depression and anxiety, as well as those vague feelings of just not being what you ought to be.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Glasgow are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Glasgow then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Glasgow, or Child Psychologists in Glasgow.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Glasgow psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Glasgow specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
