I am a fully qualified, COSCA accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. I work with adults of all ages from the age of 16.
I was a Trainer and Life Coach in personal development for 20 years. I became interested in counselling about 12 years ago and I then studied with the Glasgow Cognitive Therapy Centre where I gained my Diploma in CBT. I have a particular interest in trauma work but deal with many other issues such as low mood, anxiety, stress, panic, social anxiety and low self-worth.
I am now working in private practice where I see people from all walks of life.
I am also a tutor on the Diploma in CBT course at Glasgow Cognitive Therapy Centre.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Sessions are charged at £55 for 50 minutes, however, may be subject to review depending on client circumstances.
Longer appointments can be arranged should therapist or client think it necessary and charged accordingly.
Time will not be added to an appointment for a late arrival and client will be charged the full amount.
Payment is accepted by cash or bank transfer with the first session being paid in advance.
Cancellations may be made up to 24 hours before the appointment.
Appointments cancelled after this time will be charged in full.
Meeting you, Edith was the first step in getting some of my confidence back. I am now getting on well at college and enjoying everything about it.
I really appreciate all your help and I learned a lot from our meetings.
My CBT has made such a difference in my life and I've been very lucky to have your help.
