Dr Alison McLaughlin CPsychol
I am a counselling psychologist who can work with a range of issues or circumstances which may be affecting your wellbeing. My ambition is to support people in living well, to embrace and manage the inevitable distress that is part of the human condition. Life experiences or circumstances which affect our wellbeing may include low mood, anxiety, stress, dependencies, relationship difficulties, traumatic experiences, bereavement, loss, life transitions, illness. I recognise the challenges in managing life responsibilities including caring for others, work stresses, debt and money worries.
I am trained in person-centred and cognitive behavioural therapies. I work with you to identify which therapeutic approach may be appropriate for you and your goals. I utilise a therapeutic space in Glasgow city centre. Often people find it difficult finding time for themselves. The centrally located therapy room allows people who work in Glasgow to discreetly take time from work, as appointments can be offered before, during and after office hours.
