Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (ADULTS 18+ years) 
Qualifications: Diploma in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Groupwork
Regulatory Body: British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) (Registered Member 391998) COSCA Membership (4277)

The key message of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is that the way we think (our cognitions) and what we do (our behaviour) affects the way we feel. It follows that if we want to change the way we feel then we will need to make changes to the way we think and act.


Following your initial assessment, and upon hearing your presenting issue, Karen will work on a treatment plan which she and you can look at together. Working collaboratively on conditions such as anxiety disorders, depression/low mood, stress, and trauma related difficulties, Karen can help to provide useful tools and techniques that will help you progress and heal. Karen aims to provide a safe and confidential space to work through issues and will use other evidenced based therapeutic approaches to suit individual needs, such as compassion focused therapy and mindfulness.

There will be work for you to do by yourself throughout each week and together Karen and you can review your progress. Occasionally, it may be beneficial to use guided discovery, breathing exercises and gentle meditation. This is used only if you are comfortable trying it as Karen understands these things are not for everyone. 

Karen has worked for 30 years as a qualified veterinary nurse and will be working towards using pet assisted therapy in the near future.


Karen provides:

*Face to face therapy sessions in a private space within The Wellbeing Rooms at Bearsden and Stepps

*Telephone and online therapy sessions to suit individuals needs and busy schedules
