Dr. Jaclyn MacLeod, Clinical Psychologist
Hi, I am Dr Jaclyn MacLeod, a Clinical Psychologist with over 10 years experience of working therapeutically. I have a diverse work background which began with 10 years serving in the Army as Military Policewoman. Whilst serving in the Army I completed my COSCA counselling qualification and I was trained to work with victims of sexual violence. I then spent 5 years working in the 3rd sector with disadvantaged children and young people. In 2007 I began working in adult mental health for the NHS.
I am based in Falkirk town centre, which is where we would meet.
All enquiries are welcome and I am happy to discuss your needs informally over the phone before booking an appointment. I work with a range of difficulties which include: anxiety, low self esteem, low mood and trauma.
Training, qualifications & experience
I work integratively which means I use a range of therapeutic strategies to help you with your difficulties. This means that we will tailor our work together to your needs and abilities.
I am trained and experienced in using Cognitive Behavioural Therapies (CBT) as well as third wave therapies which include Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and mindfulness.
