I am a professionally qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT), based in Paisley, providing therapy services across Renfrewshire and Glasgow.
I use an integrative style leading with acceptance and compassion and the skillset of CBT, whilst focussing on your individual needs to get the best out of our sessions together.
I aim to build a positive and trusting relationship with my clients and offer a relaxed, safe and confidential space to talk through your problems.
Using a collaborative non-judgmental approach, I can assist you in learning new ways of coping, decision making and problem-solving techniques, which can be referred to at any time. Taking the first step to start therapy can be difficult but it’s the first step in the journey to helping you work towards your goals.
Coaching can support you to learn, grow, and develop. Are you looking for help in achieving your goals such as professional success, personal growth, better health, and wellbeing?
Would you appreciate a helping hand to gain clarity and greater self-awareness, guiding you to achieve your goals?
Helpful tools and techniques that you can refer back to at any time will keep you on track.
Using positive psychology coaching with the aim of giving you a sense of acceptance, contentment and well-being, and optimism about your future.
