A Warm Welcome from Linda Hardy
Counsellor in Central Glasgow


Are you looking to find a counsellor or CBT therapist in Glasgow City Centre or on-line?


Welcome. profile

I am an experienced Counsellor & Cognitive Behaviour Therapist (CBT) in Glasgow City Centre, located right next door to Glasgow Central Station, and just a 10 minute stroll from Glasgow Queen Street Station.

I am registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, which is the largest membership body for counsellors and psychotherapists in the UK.

Qualified with a Master's Degree, I provide in-person CBT and counselling from my room in Central Glasgow; as well as an on-line service.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you wish to ask anything at all.



Replying To Your Enquiry

I always aim to reply to any enquiry within 1 working day, and each and every enquiry is answered.

However, it has come to my attention that, due to heightened security from some e-mail providers, that more messages are going directly into junk or spam folders, which also includes direct replies that may be in a chain.

Please do check out your spam or junk folder if you are waiting to hear back from me.



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 help and support sometimes, but I know it's not easy easy seeking a stranger to trust with your feelings. Many people tell me that I am friendly and welcoming, and I will do my best to help you feel safe and at ease throughout our time together. During our first meeting, I will spend time hearing about what brings you to my room, and through collaborating together, we can begin to outline your goals and objectives moving forward.

  • 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

  • Gain some clarity about how events from the past may be influencing you today



Some of the areas I can help you with

  • Help with addiction (food, alcohol, drugs, gambling)
  • Low self confidence / low self esteem

  • Putting undue pressure on yourself
  • Procrastination
  • Going out of your comfort zone
  • Be more assertive


On-line Therapy

I have been providing an internet based service since March 2020. Working on-line because of COVID was the only alternative, and this has proved to be effective for a number of people. It offers a degree of flexibility and convenience, and has proven to be the favoured option for many people who would not have contemplated an internet platform before. I am very pleased to say that I will continue to offer this option from now on.

My service is conducted via Zoom, which is considered safe and secure by my professional body. I would provide our own unique link for us to join each other in the 'therapy room'.


Coronavirus safeguards when working face to face at my counselling room in Glasgow

Now that we have the official go-ahead to offer an in-person service, it is likely that safety measures will need to be in place for the foreseeable future.

With this in mind, I have developed some COVID parameters to ensure we are as safe as possible. I am also pleased to say that I should be fully vaccinated before I see you in person.

Please do not hesitate to ask me anything at all about how I will aim to keep us as safe as possible.



Fees

I realise that the cost for private therapy can be difficult financially for many people, so I try my best to factor that in with what I charge.

Sessions typically last for an hour, and are charged at £45 per session. I also offer early evening appointments that can start anywhere between 5 p.m. and 6.30.



Free Half Hour Consultation

It is important that you feel comfortable with whoever you choose as your counsellor. So, I am available for a consultation, free of charge, lasting up to half an hour.

This could provide an opportunity to check anything out, or ask any questions about counselling, or what you might expect from the counselling process.

So, please do not hesitate to get in touch by e-mail to arrange a time to meet on zoom or chat on the phone. It may help you to decide if I would be a good fit as your on-line therapist; or in person in Glasgow City Centre.

There is no obligation to book a service after this consultation

Please do not hesitate to e-mail me here at my Counselling in Glasgow service for more information.
