When you know something has to change but are unsure where to start, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can offer helpful solutions. If you are experiencing anxiety, stress, health issues or low self-esteem, you may be avoiding things, doing too much, or just feeling bad. This can impact on work, sleep, mood and relationships making life harder. CBT can help you recognise unhelpful thoughts and actions and their link to emotional distress. This awareness means you can begin to make helpful changes to manage difficulties and gain balance.

I could say a lot about my specific qualifications and the type of therapy I offer, but honestly, I believe all types of therapy can work. The most important factor on your journey I believe, is the therapeutic relationship you have with your counsellor or therapist. If you feel you can really trust and open up to your therapist, then your journey of self discovery and healing can truly begin. So please take time to read about me and go with what your gut tells you (its normally right!) I specialise in working with adults experiencing anxiety/low mood and self esteem issues and also survivors of abuse, emotional or physical.

Anxiety and Depression, to me, are natural emotions that everybody experience in response to something. However, these can become a prison if they become a constant in life. I want to help you work through your fears by understanding them and through your depression by offering you a genuine human-human relationship, for you to regain your energy and courage until you feel confident in yourself again.

I believe that the most important relationship we will have over our lifetime is the relationship that we have with ourselves. Throughout our lives we can come to conclusions about ourselves and others that cause us to feel insecure with who we are and around others. My job as a therapist and life coach is to provide a talking space for you to figure out what is holding you back from achieving the relationships and lifestyle you deserve. The more we understand who we really are, the easier it becomes to truly and deliberately create the life we desire.

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!

There are many reasons why someone will seek counselling. Major life changes, even positive ones, can disrupt the balance of everyday life and impact our mental health. Traumas and experiences from our past can intrude on our peace of mind in the present. Bereavement and loss, illness and disability, relationship and work issues can affect our ability to function. Sometimes it feels like we have limited choices and we are unsure of where to turn to for support. Person-centred counselling is a safe and confidential space where you can be yourself and share what is troubling you.

I have trained and practise as a person centred counsellor because I believe everyone has the potential to reach inside and find their own strength and resources, with a little help . There are times in all of our lives when we feel we need some extra help to cope with life events and struggles. I would like to help you through whatever it is that brings you here. Whether it is work, life events, or you're not sure what is wrong but feel something is not right, it can help to share your feelings with that impartial, non-judgemental someone, allowing you to clarify your own thoughts and helping you to see a way through.

Are you struggling with an experience you've had or are having currently? Are you feeling the weight of these experiences? As a person-centred psychotherapist, I aim to provide a space and relationship in which I seek to help alleviate the weight and accompany you from under it to a place where you feel empowered and in control. I work with adults (16+) in order to help them grow and work towards a happier life. It is important to remember that therapy isn't a pill that fixes everything at once, it requires time and care, as do you. As your therapist, I will be an ear to your experience and a voice in times that may seem impossible.

I have a particular interest in working with people with relationship problems, including their relationship with their self and, with their own emotions and emotional regulation. This can manifest as social anxiety, with an underlying sense of not being good enough or being odd/not fitting in with other people and society’s expectations. If you struggle with your own identity - not knowing your own likes/dislikes/values (sometimes called codependency), then get in touch. We can explore together what gets in the way of you knowing (and accepting) the real you.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?

Each professional in Paisley then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety.

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 Paisley, or Child Psychologists in Paisley.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Paisley 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 Paisley specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others.

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.
