A warm welcome to my site, and thanks for visiting.
A Counselling and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Service in Central Glasgow.
Face-to-face sessions are available on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Therapy in a spacious and welcoming room, right next door to Glasgow's Central Station.
My name is Linda Hardy. I am an experienced Counsellor & CBT therapist, having qualified with a Masters Degree in 2011.
As well as being conveniently located next door to Glasgow's Central Station, I am also a mere 10 minute stroll away from Glasogw Queen Street Station.
Please scroll down for a brief overview about me and my therapy practice. For more detailed informaition about me and how I approach my work, please do check out My Service Page. (this will open in a new window).
If you are interested in my service, please do not hesitate to get in touch should you wish to ask anything at all.
A telephone consultion is also available for you to check in with me and ask any questions you may have. This is a complimentary service, and there is no obligation to book a service with me afterwards.
My philosophy is that we are our own best helper. Through counselling, you can work towards understanding yourself better, and discover helpful tools and coping strategies
We all need support in our life sometimes, or to have space to talk about our concerns.
There could be so many reasons as to why you are here right now. Perhaps you feel stressed or anxious; low in mood or motivation; or feeling grief from a loss or life changing event. You may want to work on being more confident within yourself - perhaps socially, or better able to assert your point of view. Family dynamics or inter-relationships can also cause us concern or distress. It could be that it is hard to even understand how you are feeling, and may well want to make sense of it.
Whatever the reason is that you are seeking support right now, my priority is to help you feel safe and at ease for you to share whatever you feel comfortable with.
My Service Could Help You To
- Offload anything that is on your mind in a friendly and supportive space
- Gain insight about how your thoughts, feelings and reactions impact on you
- Find tools and strategies to help you live with more ease now, and in the future
- Release built up emotions that you have been holding down
- Gain some clarity about how events from the past may be influencing you today
Some of the areas I can help you with
- Grief / bereavement therapy
- Anxiety and stress
- Panic attacks
- Help with addiction (food, alcohol, drugs, gambling)
- Low self confidence / low self esteem
- Depression / feeling sad
- Talking through family issues or within relationships
- Working through emotions, such as anger, guilt or hurt
- Putting undue pressure on yourself
- Going out of your comfort zone
- Be more assertive
Taking COVID into consideration
As we are 'moving forward' through COVID, it is understandable if you feel concerned or apprehensive about the continued risks - I know I do!
I have set out my room to ensure that we are as safe as possible, whilst providing a warm, welcoming space for us to meet.
If you have any concerns about booking an in-person appointment, please do not hesitate to contact me to ask anything at all about the safeguards that I have in place.
Or you may have your own personal requirements, such as for us to wear a mask before we are seated, and that is okay with me.
Sessions are charged at £45 per session - lasting between 50-60 minutes.
I can take payment by card reader, bank transfer or cash - whatever is most convenient to you.
A telephone Consultation is available before you commit to booking a service
It is never easy trying to find somebody you can trust to talk to - especially if this is your first time 'taking the leap'. So, I offer a telephone consultation first, which can last for anything up to 20 minutes.
This would provide an opportunity to ask me any questions you may have about counselling, or about what to expect from the sessions. It would also provide the opportunity for me hear from you about why you are seeking support at this time.
More importantly, it will give you a sense of whether you feel comfortable having me as your counsellor. There would be no obligation to book a follow-on service.
E-mail me here at Counselling-Glasgow to request a consultation.
please do include what days and times would suit you best for me to call
I always aim to reply within 1 working day.
However, sometimes replies may appear in recipient's Junk folder.
So please do check this out if you have not heard back from me within a day or two
