Looking for a therapist in Glasgow?
Whether you are looking to make small changes in your life, or you feel that its time for some major changes, counselling can help you manage and make these changes more quickly and effectively.
Whether its regarding your relationships; How can I be more assertive? How do I manage my anger/ resentment? How do I decide whether I should stay or go? How do I deal with infidelity? How do I get over this break up?
Or whether it is around your own mood and you are struggling with low self esteem, anxiety or depression, and are looking for a solution that does not rely on medication. Working with a CBT approach I can help treat help treat anxiety, depression, phobias, trauma, assault or injury and addiction, whether it is alcohol/ eating/ gambling.
If you are struggling with work related issues, and going into work is becoming a chore, whether its getting a better work life balance, or dealing with change, with difficult colleagues, counselling can also help get you back on track, to have more awareness of the situation, and what you can do to change it.
You might not feel that you have any ‘real problems’ but feel that life in general is a bit of a struggle, and that there is something missing. Counselling can help give greater self awareness to recognise what you can and cannot change in your life.
