About me and my therapy practice
Hello, my name is Andy, I’m a counsellor & psychotherapist based in Finnieston, Glasgow and a Registered Member of BACP.
I work with clients (aged 16+) in-person and online.
Working online means I’m able to help people across the UK & other parts of the world.
Both in-person and online therapy provides a safe, confidential and secure space which can help to vastly improve the quality of your life.
I know this because I’m in personal therapy myself. It makes me a more informed, empathetic therapist and has hugely improved the quality of my life and my relationship with others.
I believe the true mechanism of change is through the relationship & although I've extensive theoretical knowledge to assist me in the therapeutic process, it is the connection to my clients which is most vital.
At the end of the day we're 2 humans sitting together (online/in-person), with one sharing their thoughts, feelings & emotions.
You need to do that within a comfortable trusting therapeutic relationship which I aim to provide.
Change can take time but I don’t demand any long-term commitment from clients because there’s no recipe for living that fits all.
We're all unique as humans and everyone’s life journey is different. But at some point however, you will hopefully walk out the door a different person, closer to the version you want, and are meant, to be.
All sessions last one hour.

You know yourself better than anyone and I will let you lead me during our therapeutic journey together. This ensures the work we do is pressure-free. On occasion I may empathically point you in a certain direction or ask your permission to explore certain areas which I believe may be helpful. I will not set you any homework or tasks, but you will notice that the work we do does not end when our sessions end. A big part of the therapeutic experience is how you are able to reflect on what we explore in sessions, internalising the experience in a positive way.
