Emma Parish - Cognitive Behavioural Therapist
Hi, I'm Emma, I offer CBT counselling in Bearsden and the surrounding areas.
I am currently offering sessions online due to the current pandemic.
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 outcomes are, and then looking at a treatment plan to how you might work to achieve this.
In my experience, this allows me to provide my clients with a unique tailored support that is required to empower you in 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.
I offer a free 20 minute phone call should you wish to discuss anything at all.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
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.
If you feel it would be of benefit to yourself, I offer a free 20 minute phone call with you. 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.
