Jackie is a Chartered Clinical Psychologist with 32 years experience working in the NHS, 21 of those in CAMHS, and 5 in paediatric neuropsychology. Meeting with a clinical psychologist provides an opportunity to talk and think about things that are unclear or worrying you about your child. This may be related for example, to stress, anxiety, bereavement, or other significant life challenges and events.

For younger children, it may be instead some form of behavioural problems that indicate there is a possible underlying emotional difficulty. A general assessment of mental health and emotional –

behavioural presentation can help identify the need for more in depth assessment and longer term support.

Jackie also offers specific assessment for anxiety, including obsessive compulsive presentations, panic, social anxiety and post-traumatic stress. Following assessment, evidence based therapeutic

approaches to brief interventions are available, principally focusing on cognitive behaviour therapy.

Signposting is also provided for appropriate self-help materials and sources of further information and

DR ELSPETH TRAYNOR

Clinical Psychologist (Adults 18+)
Qualifications: Doctorate of Clinical Psychology
Regulatory Body: Health and Care Professions Council (PYL24006)
Location: Bearsden

My therapy work is shaped by core values of kindness and curiosity. My focus is in guiding people to develop effective skills for dealing with the multiple ways that stress, trauma and difficult life circumstances can lead to suffering and distress. Over the past 30 years I worked in a variety of NHS

settings, helping people with a wide range of mental health issues. I developed a particular interest

in the impact of trauma including Complex PTSD, and in the complex links between stress, trauma and chronic health issues. Many of us learn to disconnect from our bodies as a way of managing distress. I believe that restoring a deep connection to body awareness is fundamental to regaining physical and psychological health.


I draw on a number of psychological approaches including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Schema Therapy, Internal Family Systems Therapy and Nervous System Regulation to develop an individual approach for each person I work with. I believe that

everyone has the capacity to heal themselves from suffering and I love helping others unlock their healing potential.

I offer face to face and therapy to self-funding clients aged 18 and over. I also offer supervision for therapy practitioners including clinical psychologists. I am a registered Practitioner (Clinical)

Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC, PYL 24006).
