Hi, I'm Robert, an experienced Cognitive Behavioural Therapist & Counsellor.
I have experience working with a wide variety of clients and a passion for helping people. I help people discover and nurture their self-esteem and become more comfortable with themselves and their emotions.
How I work:
I blend classic CBT with modern Compassion Focused Therapy. Together, we work towards uncovering the roots of your difficulties, re-appraising how current coping strategies are working (or not working) and also help you foster a kindness for yourself helping life feel lighter, brighter and more enjoyable.
If you are looking for help and support with depression and all types of anxiety, including OCD, panic, generalised anxiety disorder and social anxiety, I can help. Whether you've been diagnosed or you simply feel something's not right and you'd like some help understanding what and why and would like a bit of help making a positive change and feeling better.
Our sessions will have a modern self-compassion focus, where I will tailor a treatment plan with each client to provide a bespoke service for the maximum effect in as few sessions as possible.
If life's feeling a struggle or unsatisfying, help is here - so please get in touch or book a session directly on my website.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Daytime appointments are £45 and evening appointments are £50
Sessions are paid for in advance, where you can book online and see many more details on my website. Usually 6 to 12 (occasionally up to 18) sessions are enough to effect lasting life changing outcomes, and we're always working towards your goals and you're in control of how much therapy you feel you need and want.
I provide CBT in the heart of Glasgow City Centre, at 70 West Regent Street, as well as online / phone to many people across the UK.
