We all experience emotional pain; as an infant, a child, a teenager, a parent and an adult. Whether it’s in response to life events (e.g. loss, trauma, moves), transitions (e.g. to adolescents, as a parent, retirement), adjustment to ill health (e.g. cancer, chronic illness, injury) or life in general (e.g. long term low mood or anxiety). Accepting that we need help and support can be hard and daunting. Getting the right help is important and can teach you how to live a fulfilling life.

As human beings we are complex. We may have emotional responses which we believe are shameful or embarrassing, causing us to deny them. Depression, anxiety and stress can take hold in our daily lives. We may feel stuck in the one place and too overwhelmed to know what to do or where to ask for help. This, alongside our jobs, families, relationships, bereavements, and the pressure of life can feel overwhelming. Some of us may have struggled with our mental health for years, for others, these hardships may come out of nowhere. We may have experienced traumatic events in our past that are affecting our present.

Do you feel overwhelmed and anxious? Do you replay awkward moments over and over whilst struggling and trying to fall asleep, wishing things were different. Do you feel that you are constantly pleasing others at the cost of your own needs. You might feel you struggle to be in control of life. "If only I was " We can struggle to value ourselves with all that is happening. We fear our low self-esteem could be affecting our work, our relationships and our self-image. Coping can be lonely and stressful. You feel counselling could offer more in control. It would help figure out how to set boundaries and help to change your interactions.

Hello, my name is Andy, I’m a counsellor & psychotherapist based in Finnieston, Glasgow and a Registered Member of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). I work with clients (aged 16+) in-person and online. Working online means I’m able to help people across the UK & worldwide. I believe the true mechanism of change is through the relationship & although I've extensive theoretical knowledge to assist me in the therapeutic process, it is the connection to my clients which I find is most vital.

Are you tired of wearing a mask and not feeling like yourself around others? You don't have to be alone in this. I will sit alongside you and explore all that heaviness you are carrying together so you can finally put it down. Sometimes, we may not feel like we have control over our lives because of this, and the way we cope (substance or alcohol use, gaming, doom scrolling on social media, etc.) can get in the way of having connections and being who we really are in them. Counselling with me can support you in exploring these patterns, too, so you can live a more fulfilling, connecting life by being yourself.

I am a relational therapist and take a holistic approach to my clients. Broadly speaking this means I treat the person and not their problem or disorder. Rather than seeing mental health difficulties like depression or anxiety as something wrong with you that need to be fixed, I view them as valid and understandable responses to challenging life experiences. My work as a therapist is informed by both my academic training as well as my own personal struggles in striving for good mental health. I try to combine my theoretical knowledge of what can help with my own personal understanding of how challenging our lives and strugges can be

I have worked with a variety of adult mental health problems for 19 years, for the past 11 years as Consultant Clinical Psychologist. I am experienced in offering both brief and longer-term psychological therapies, and I am trained in understanding complex problems from a number of psychological perspectives. I believe it is important to be both informed by evidence-based practice and also offer support that is tailored to an individual’s unique needs. This is especially important if you are experiencing a number of difficulties and need a personalised formulation of those difficulties to guide the selection of therapy approaches.

Whatever your reason for seeking counselling; abuse, anxiety, overthinking, self-esteem, work or relationship issues, to name but a few, you're probably looking for something to change. Counselling offers you a different kind of relationship, one where you can open up, explore and reassess current or historic issues which may be holding you back. With greater understanding comes greater resilience and self-empowerment, which can enable you to make the changes you want in order to enjoy your life more fully. That life can be hard is a fact. That we have to face challenging times alone is not. Get in touch and start that change!
