Hi, I am Aga. I know how difficult it is to reach out for support and how bumpy our personal journey can be at times.
I am an experienced counsellor and I have worked with a variety of issues including trauma, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, bereavement, self-harm, relationship issues and stress.
I believe that the key in my therapeutic work is simply being there for you with an open heart and mind. Being fully present means meeting you and your life's journey with empathy and compassion, because I know from the experience how powerful it can be to feel really seen and understood.
My own life experiences shaped me as a person and made me become a counsellor. I feel I can relate on a deep level to someone, who may be facing struggle and emotional pain.
I am warm and friendly and this helps people to feel at ease with me.
I can offer an empathetic and open therapeutic approach. I work in a convenient location in Glasgow City Centre. I aim to create a safe and welcoming space, where you can explore any issues or difficulties that are affecting you.
I work in a person-centred way, that recognises and values each person as an unique individual. You will have time and space to process your feelings in a peaceful and non-judgmental environment.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
