I also work with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy which focuses on overcoming barriers in our lives, giving up the struggle with difficult thoughts/feelings and focusing on our values.
Confused? Struggling to understand what you are going through? If you are feeling stuck, that your world is getting smaller, are looking for ways to manage emotions, overcome your anxiety or grow in confidence I may be able to help. I provide online therapy to clients across the UK for difficulties including: anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, OCD and others. After a number of years working in the NHS, I decided to develop a practice using evidence-based therapy to build understanding and find ways of coping with mental health problems – just like any other health problem we might encounter in our lives.

I work primarily using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to help you understand your difficulties and reduce psychological distress.
People come to therapy for many different reasons at different stages of life. You may be struggling with anxiety, work stress or low mood. You may feel you’ve been unable to speak to anyone about your difficulties or have struggled to open up about how you feel. You may want to get to know yourself better, understand your triggers and explore your thoughts and feelings. You may have goals, but feel you are struggling to reach them. I’m here to offer you a safe, non-judgemental space to talk openly and help you move forwards in your life to make lasting change.

I integrate traditional CBT with Compassion Focused Therapy, and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, tailoring my approach based on your feedback and what you find most helpful.
Being human is hard, but you don't have to go it alone. I can help you understand yourself better and improve your relationship with yourself and others, to ultimately live a more fulfilling life. My primary modality is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with a holistic, personalised approach. A lot of my clients happen to be students or work in post-doc positions, but I have worked with people from diverse backgrounds on a variety of issues. I have an interest in working with anxiety and related issues, such as procrastination and perfectionism, and am passionate about how video games can support well-being.

As a Clinical Psychologist I am trained to the highest professional standards, skilled in using a number of evidence-based therapeutic models including cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) & Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ).
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.

I will commonly bring Compassion Focused and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy aspects to my work as they offer a CBT based understanding of our human difficulties, thoughts, emotions and actions.
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 am a trans non binary integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, with many years of experience working in an NHS Clinical Psychology Department and private practice. In private practice, I welcome anyone who feels that psychotherapy may be of help, whether you are looking to have just a few sessions to think about a specific issue or situation, or would like to consider longer-term therapy. Depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, illness, bereavement, self-esteem, gender and sexuality, queer identity, life-changes, are just some of the reasons why you may want to try psychotherapy.

Making the initial step to begin counselling can be daunting, however a good therapeutic relationship is built on understanding, empathy, attention, acceptance and encouragement, along with good communication.
I am a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with a background in education and in yoga/fitness teaching. Clients bring a wide variety of issues to cognitive behavioural therapy sessions, such as anxiety, depression, panic -attacks and low self-esteem, for example, and many of their goals include, learning, how to relax, breathe properly, meditate, exercise and find self-compassion. Therefore, by collaborating together and combining some of my skills with each client's goals, positive change happens. I have experience with adults, young people and children, as I counsel within school. My approach is warm, welcoming, and empathic

I also integrate other therapeutic perspectives into my work including Compassion based therapy, Acceptance and Commitment therapy and Trauma focused therapy.
Looking for a counsellor is already a brave step. My hope for you, is that we can explore whats distressing you, what’s maintaining it and how we can bring about positive change. Anxiety, Low Mood and Relationship struggles amongst others, are all issues we can face at various times in our life. Understanding ourselves better and how to best cope can begin to alleviate the discomfort felt in emotional distressing times. Therapy provides a safe space to explore what's keeping you stuck, what's driving it and how to unlock yourself from thinking and behaviours that no longer serve you.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Counsellors
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorising that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviours to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Glasgow or for a Glasgow ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.
