About me

Hey, I'm Rhianna and I'm a Person-Centred Counsellor.

First of all I just want to say that I know it can be difficult to know what to look for in a counsellor so I have written about how I chose a counsellor for myself as I thought it might help you in your search for the right person. It is in the "Further Info" section at the bottom of the page.

Secondly, let me tell you a wee bit about how I got into counselling. I studied Psychology as soon as I left school as I thought I wanted to be a Psychologist. After graduating and spending years working in retail and feeling lost, I retrained as a Nail Technician and started my own business. It wasn't until one of my clients said that coming to see me was like going to see a therapist. And that was my Eureka! moment, I had never thought of it before but it made so much sense. I have always been a good listener and people have always fascinated me. Friends, family and work associates throughout my life have always described me as considerate, thoughtful and non-judgemental. Only recently did I realise that these qualities could be used to benefit others. I trained as a person-centred therapist so that I could help others in an effective, safe and certain way. I am fully qualified and a registered member of the BACP.

I have particular interest in working with people with anxiety and depression. Anxiety and depression are both something that can be worked through and understood.

Previous clients have told me that I am easy to trust and that they felt safe as soon as they met me.

A little bit about my journey with anxiety;
I was always anxious when I was growing up. I always thought it was something that I had to fight against and overcome on my own. I found out through reading and seeing a person-centred counsellor that what I needed to do was find out what my anxiety was trying to do for me, what purpose was it trying to serve and where did it come from. Once I uncovered that information I gradually became less anxious and more excited about life because I understood myself better and could make more sense out of my reactions and behaviour.
 
Now my life is a lot more enjoyable and less stressful, if I ever feel anxiety I can understand why and I am able to resolve the situation. Now I can enjoy myself I have a lot more hobbies; I love to spend my time reading, writing, drawing, creating and learning to play different musical instruments.

I meet my clients in my Consultation room in the City Centre of Glasgow.

If you would like to meet with me please phone, send me an email or a text so we can arrange a time and a day that is suitable for both of us.

I look forward to hearing from you.

And if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask :)

Further information

This is just a little advice, if you would like it - on how I chose my therapist. I recommend these steps in no particular order and also it is not necessary to do all these steps either. You might just see a name and a picture and go with that, these tips are if you are struggling to narrow your search.

So....

What kind of therapy are you looking for?

If you are unsure of the therapies available to you - have a look through the therapies offered within your area and then type them into the Google search bar.
Have a read about each of the therapies and try to get a feel for them - Do they sound good or bad to you?
You can also watch video's of therapy sessions to help you get a clearer picture of how the different therapies work.
Type a kind of therapy into Youtube's search bar and a demo video will hopefully be available for you to watch.

I would look at their prices and see if price determines your choice.

I would look at the photo's and see if you get a good vibe off of the photo or the blurb then that is a good sign. Especially if it made me smile or laugh :)

If the person seemed like my kind of a person then I would get in touch with them.

I hope that helps any :)
