My name is Jennifer, I am a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist based in Renfrewshire. I was born in Australia but have lived in Scotland for 6 years. I work with clients starting from 13 years old who are experiencing mental health difficulties. I work with clients who are experiencing mild to moderate anxiety and depression (including specific disorders like OCD, health anxiety, social anxiety etc.) and have experience delivering trauma focussed CBT. My clients work towards specific, unique goals and tend to have between 6-12 sessions with me (occasionally more sessions, particularly if we are working with trauma).

I think that it is really powerful when we feel heard and understood. When we feel like someone is trying to get who we are and where we’re coming from. My desire to listen, properly, is based on my years of working with people who have gone unheard by others and who don't want to ignore themselves and their needs any more. I think things can really change when we understand more about ourselves and what drives us to do the things we do.

If stress and anxiety are making life difficult, it can be a challenge getting through the day. A busy mind can be full of worries, fears and frustration no matter what you do. To cope, you may find yourself putting on a face at work or with friends, or avoiding activities and places you previously enjoyed, as it is just too much effort. This keeps us stuck in a vicious cycle, which is just exhausting. The good news is that CBT can help. You can learn achievable coping strategies that make life easier, help you take control, and get back to being you.

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.

Online Counsellors

Is online therapy as effective as in-person?

Numerous studies suggest that online therapy can be as effective as in-person therapy. However, further research is needed to determine if online therapy provides the same benefits across all client populations. Individuals with severe mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, or those who may benefit from in-person check-ins, like those with eating disorders, may not experience the same level of benefit from online therapy. Nonetheless, the success of online therapy, much like in-person therapy, often hinges on the quality of the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client rather than the specific modality of therapy used.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of therapy conducted online?

One of the main advantages of online therapy is its convenience for both clients and therapists. It also allows clients who require specialised therapy to access a wider range of professionals than they could with only in-person sessions. Additionally, online therapy may be a more affordable option in some cases and often offers the same insurance benefits as in-person therapy. However, online therapy may not be suitable for everyone, especially those who value face-to-face interaction with a therapist. Therapists may find it more challenging to assess clients accurately in an online setting due to reduced nonverbal cues on camera. There is also the increased risk that disruptions caused by external factors, such as technology malfunctions, can hinder the therapy session. For these reasons, many therapists offer a "hybrid" therapeutic approach, alternating between seeing clients in-person and online.

Is online therapy suitable for children and adolescents?

Just like with adults, the accessibility and convenience of online therapy can greatly benefit children and adolescents. In fact, children and adolescents may be more accustomed to navigating online platforms than older adults, making online sessions feel more natural for them. Teens might also be interested in using additional online tools, such as therapist-recommended apps, as an adjunct to online therapy sessions. Apps for developing CBT skills, practicing mindfulness exercises, or tracking thoughts and moods can be helpful for teens receiving therapy. However, it's important to note that not all therapeutic modalities are well-suited to online therapy, especially those used with younger children. For example, play therapy, which helps younger children express their emotions, often requires in-person sessions to be fully effective.

Can I receive prescriptions and medication management with online therapy?

The ability for psychiatrists to prescribe medications through online therapy varies based on the medication and the states where the medical professional and client are located. While many prescribing regulations were relaxed during the COVID-19 pandemic, some states still enforce rules, especially concerning controlled substances, which may mandate an in-person visit before prescribing. Generally, however, medical professionals can prescribe non-controlled substances through online therapy sessions just as they do during in-person sessions.
