About me

Counselling for anxiety Glasgow. I specialise in anxiety & stress, using a unique blend of therapies to help you resolve your issues naturally. Call / text me on 0791 240 8830 to book your free initial telephone consultation and find out more about how I can help you.

My practice is based in Cambuslang, in a quiet, comfortable therapy room with plenty of parking space available outside. Telephone and Skype counselling are also available.  I have a friendly and gentle approach which will put you at ease.

As well as anxiety and stress, I also deal with many other issues such as relationship issues, low self-esteem, healthy lifestyles, weight-loss, bereavements and confidence-building.

Hypnotherapy and NLP
Hypnotherapy and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) can really speed up the therapy process.  Issues that could take years to resolve with counselling can be resolved in just a few weeks when we introduce hypnosis into the sessions.

For this reason, hypnotherapy represents excellent value for money when it comes to dealing with your problems.

Another advantage of using hypnotherapy is that you don't actually have to talk about the thing that's bothering you, if that makes you feel uncomfortable.  This makes it very useful when dealing with deeply personal issues.

Here is a brief outline of some of my popular hypnotherapy courses:

Beat Anxiety Now

How much more could you get out of life if your anxiety wasn't holding you back?

Could you do better in work?  Would your relationships be easier?  Would your health improve?

Anxiety keeps us from doing so many things that we could be enjoying in life, and it can be resolved easily and quickly with the right therapeutic approach.

During this four-week course we will quickly get to the root of your issues, resolve them, and release them for good. No need to rehash them for months on end in counselling sessions!  You will learn to think differently and be more positive and optimistic about all aspects of life.  It's like pressing a 'reset' button on the brain!

Stress management

Stress is becoming one of the biggest killers in modern-day society, leading to a myriad of problems such as high blood pressure, headaches, and insomnia.  Hypnotherapy is the perfect antidote to stress, as it is a deeply relaxing therapy.  Think of it like a massage for the brain.

During this course you will learn self-hypnosis and mindfulness, so you can relax yourself at any time, wherever you are.  You will gain more focus and clarity of mind, which leads to higher achievements in all walks of life.  This course also includes a practical element, helping you identify the issues in your life that are causing you stress, and work towards ways of combatting them.

Chronic Pain reduction/elimination

Studies have shown that chronic pain is often caused by Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).  In other words, if you have suffered from a bad experience during your childhood, it could have affected you so badly that you continue to suffer for years afterward, and this can lead to physical symptoms which are often difficult to explain from a medical standpoint.

During this course we go back in time using hypnosis and identify the original trigger point for your pain.  Then we safely release it and re-program your emotions with positivity and self-love.

I am trained in a cutting edge hypnotic method called 'OldPain2Go'.  This method allows you to connect directly with your Unconscious Mind, asking it to 'turn off' the pain signals that are no longer necessary or relevant to your current life.

People with chronic pain are often very driven, and put everybody else's needs before themselves.  A very important part of this course is the practical element, in which we will work to change that part of you that feels guilty about putting yourself first.  Self-care is so important, and when we don't look after ourselves sometimes our body has to scream very loudly to get our attention!

Virtual Gastric Band Weightloss Hypnotherapy

This weightloss program is a very effective way to lose weight naturally, with no operations or medications needed.  Simply sit back and enjoy the relaxing power of hypnosis as your mind and body are re-programed to enjoy three healthy meals each day.

Be warned though - this course is only for those who are highly motivated to lose weight - you have to take action too!  You will receive a handbook with instructions, and it is important that you set aside at least 20 minutes each day to listen to a self-hypnosis MP3.

Ditch The Junkfood - Healthy Eating made easy

This course is for you if you can't seem to stop yourself from reaching for that chocolate or packet of crisps, and you'd love to crave healthy food instead of junkfood.

Available as a home-study course, or with one-to-one support.

Journey of Self-Discovery

Are you at a crossroads in your life?  Facing a big transition and not sure where to turn?

This course will take you on a journey back to the past, and forward to the future, giving you deep insights into what your real purpose is in life.  We will use hypnosis and energy healing to help you to connect at a deep level, and truly 'find' yourself.

Smash Your Limitations

Can you imagine what your life would be like if you smashed through all your limitations and reached your true potential?  The sky's the limit, quite literally!

This course is for you if you want to increase your confidence, raise your self-esteem, and simply do BETTER at everything in life.

My approach
I have a friendly, informal style and I do my best to put you at ease, because I realise that coming to counselling can be quite a daunting experience for many people.

I adapt my approach to suit each individual's needs, whether that is simply a gentle listening ear, or a more solution-focused style.

Practical help
If you wish I can include a practical coaching element - for instance clients who come for weight-loss sometimes ask for coaching on how to eat more healthily, or hypnotherapy to help with food cravings.  Or if you have problems with anxiety or stress I can teach you many easy practical techniques to help relax yourself.

More about me

I am very interested in holistic health; over the years I have adopted a healthy natural lifestyle which has helped me to feel increasingly healthy and full of energy. I have followed a 'rawfood' diet for many years and I am often to be found in the kitchen creating smoothies, juices, and other raw concoctions. I am also a qualified Yoga teacher and Reiki Master.

I have also worked for many years as a professional singer, which is why I love to help people gain confidence to use their 'true' voice, whether that be for singing or speaking in public.
