About me

Hi there.

Are you looking for a way to manage stress and anxiety from work? Or perhaps you have low mood or are feeling depressed. Or maybe you want some guidance on relationships? Whatever the reason, even if you just want some clarity and some life coaching, then I can help.

My name is Anita and I am a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT).

CBT is a type of talking therapy that uses a range of tools and techniques to help clients gain some clarity, overcome their problems, make positive change and reach set goals.

The main premise of CBT is that our thoughts, feelings and behaviours link together. So by positively changing one, the others follow to suit. In sessions, I will educate you about unhelpful/irrational thoughts and how to turn these unhelpful/irrational thoughts into more balanced thoughts. I will try to help you understand your problems in more detail i.e. by looking at where it originated from, triggers etc. This to me, paves the way for positive change in clients as only when we are able to understand our problems, can we truly overcome and manage them. This positive change equates to successful therapy sessions.

In sessions I also explain helpful coping strategies, exploring coping mechanisms that suit you.  We would spend time focusing on cognitive restructuring and behavioural changes. To do this, we would work together and at a level you feel comfortable with and at a pace suited to you.

I am here to listen to anything on your mind. No problem is small or silly. I currently work as a Student Counsellor at Glasgow Clyde College and have done for years. I have seen clients of differing ages and presenting issues, including depression (mild-severe), social anxiety, General Anxiety Disorder, (mild-severe), low self-esteem, low mood, feelings of low self-worth. My sessions till date have been successful and I believe this has to do with my ability to form a strong working relationship full of trust, care, compassion and no judgement. I am a friendly, warm, optimistic individual who works collaboratively with clients and gives them autonomy in sessions. Clients say I am very easy to talk to, help them see the positives in life, and give them hope. As a result of this, my clients have left therapy feeling happier, more confident and with a better belief about themselves and the world around them.

I am flexible with working times. I am available on weekends. The office I rent is located in Glasgow City Centre and so is easy to get to.
