Hi there, my name is Joanne and I am a cognitive behavioral therapist, life coach and counsellor with an independent practice based in Glasgow city centre.
I provide a safe, non-judgmental and compassionate environment, where you can share your challenges.
My main approach is cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), with elements of other approaches being incorporated to suit individual needs. CBT is a talking based therapy and is recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) to help treat anxiety, depression, phobias and other emotional, mental and physical health issues.
CBT helps us to understand the origins of our problems with the main focus on learning to more effectively manage our thoughts, behaviours and feelings in the present. Sometimes, through no fault of our own, we often get stuck in vicious cycles. We will work together to establish new skills and strategies to help you make positive and lasting change.
I work within the ethical framework of COSCA and BABCP.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have ongoing experience working with adolescents in a secondary school, both on a one-to-one basis and in a group setting.
Prior to starting my career as a therapist, I spent 16 years with a FTSE 100 company as a sales professional, area manager, trainer and coach.
