Norma McKinnon Fathi, MSc, UKCP Registered
Life is full of ups and downs, sometimes you might need a bit of extra support to get you through a particular challenge or crisis. Whatever your reason is for looking for a therapist, you have probably decided something in your life needs to change. Therapy can provide a safe, non-judgemental space where you can explore what’s going on for you. You may have something you need to talk about, or perhaps you are not sure why you are feeling the way you do. Together we would work towards understanding what is happening and finding a resolution to the challenges you face.
I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist who works with individuals, couples and groups. My experience has enabled me to work with people from all over the world, and I am confident in working trans-culturally or with language support. I have worked with people who have faced many difficulties in life, including childhood sexual abuse, domestic violence, organized violence and torture. These experiences can have a profound impact on relationships, and lead to ongoing challenges such as post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, bereavement and loss.
I draw on a range of therapeutic approaches so that I can work in a way that responds to your needs and provides you with the kind of support you are looking for. As well as being a psychotherapist I am a qualified community worker and have an interest in supporting community activists who are working toward social change, people who experience discrimination, and supporting people who are experiencing workplace bullying.
I work face to face in Glasgow and online. Online therapy can be a good option if you find it difficult to travel to appointments or if you need to travel a lot yourself. I have used Zoom and Skype to provide counselling to people living in the UK and overseas. I also offer training, supervision and consultation to other professionals who are engaging with trauma and support to people who are experiencing vicarious trauma.
My experience as a psychotherapist has included working in private practice and in agency based clinical settings. I am co-founder of a new organisation whose work is focused on trauma, wellbeing, resilience and social change.
I understand it can be difficult to take the first step when you are looking for help and support. If you decide to get in touch, I will offer you a half hour telephone consultation at no cost, so we can discuss what you would like from meeting with a therapist and what might be helpful for you. It’s a good opportunity for you to ask me questions before deciding a way forward.
