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'm not here to tell you what to do, but rather to support and help you as you explore and make sense of your own issues, enabling you to find 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.
