Emma Parish - Cognitive Behavioural Therapist
My name is Emma Parish and I offer CBT counselling in the Bearsden and surrounding areas.
My goal for you, is to provide a friendly, confidential, collaborative and non-judgemental environment. I will listen to you with the issues that you bring to sessions, and working with them to find a way forward that works for you and your future. We determine together what the desired outcome/s are, and then looking at a treatment plan to how you might work to achieve this. In my experience this provides clients with a unique tailored support that they require to empower you to make changes that you want in your life and to find a way through the difficulties that you are experiencing. I work with whatever you feel is important in your life, and I have knowledge and experience in trauma, bereavement, anxiety and depression.
CBT has been shown to be effective across a wide range of issues. Some examples are: GAD(Generalised Anxiety Disorder) SAD(Social Anxiety Disorder) Panic Disorder OCD Phobias Low self esteem Traumatic life experiences Grief CBT can help us to learn new ways to understand and think about ourselves and others, which in turn can help us feel and act differently, equipping us with well researched tools to help tackle life's problems in the here and now and long after therapy has ended.

I acknowledge that the first step of coming to therapy is not always easy. So if you feel it would be of benefit to yourself I hold a free 20 minute phone call to yourself. This allows you to begin to feel comfortable with the process of sessions and whether CBT is the appropriate therapy for you.
Thereafter, sessions last for 50 minutes and are £50
The number of sessions are collaboratively agreed in the first session and reviewed at regular intervals.
I am a member of COSCA and bound by their code of ethics. I also hold a PVG from Disclosure Scotland.
