Hi, I'm Rhianna and I'm a Person-Centred Counsellor.
I have always been a good listener and now I can put this skill to good use. People throughout my life have always described me as a considerate, thoughtful and non-judgemental person. Only recently did I realise 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 bereavement issues.
My clients have told me in the past that I am easy to trust and they felt safe as soon as they met me.
A little bit about me.
I was always anxious when I was growing up. I always thought it was something that I had to fight against and overcome. I found out through study and seeing a 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. Once I uncovered that information I instantly became less anxious and more excited about life because I understood myself better.
Now my life is a lot more enjoyable and less stressful, if I ever get anxious I know what to do to help myself. I love to spend my time reading, writing and talking to people.
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 am looking forward to meeting you
And if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask :)

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.
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 :)
