Jean Gallagher, PG Dip Counselling, MBACP
Hi! I am a qualified person centred counsellor working in private practice in Baillieston and Glasgow city centre.
We all go through times in our lives where we face issues which seem overwhelming and often we feel there is nowhere to turn.
I offer a safe and nurturing space where I will listen without judgement, and work with you to help you understand your thoughts and feelings. Together we can identify where these may be having a negative impact on your life. I will support and help you as you explore and make sense of your issues, working towards finding answers that will work for you.
In that way, you can develop skills and strategies you can take forward to help you live your best possible life.
As well as person centred therapy, I have also studied Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), which is about learning to communicate with ourselves in a more positive way, and I sometimes use this method during sessions.
I understand that taking the first step in asking for help can be daunting, but please just get in touch by phone, text or email, and we can talk things through and discuss how counselling might help you.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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.
