About me and my therapy practice

Hi, my name is Morag and I thoroughly enjoy supporting individuals and groups through challenging periods. I have been in a supportive role for many years, my passion is for people. My main area of therapy is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which focuses on current difficulties with a view to changing the ‘here and now’ rather than spending lost of time looking to the past for causes of distress.  

CBT is often between 6-12 sessions. You as the client are expected to take a more active role in therapy by applying the new skills and techniques learned to help make changes to thoughts, feelings and behaviours.  CBT has been evidenced to support with a variety of problems such as depression, anxiety, phobias, stress, panic disorder, personality disorders and OCD. However, this type of therapy may not suit everyone as there is a need for clients to apply the techniques offered and undertake some work themselves. 

If CBT is not for you, I use support using multiple modalities for mixed durations so please contact me for an initial discussion to find out how I can best support.  

Practice description

I work online and in person in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire (subject to COVID guidelines). I really enjoy the collaborative approach that CBT offers so I will find a time to suit us either during the day or evenings. 

I also facilitate groups with professional colleagues, again online or in person. 

My first session

Prior to our first session I will email you an info leaflet, personal details form and our counselling agreement. We will use the first few minutes to review both documents and check your understanding of my ethical practices. 

We the discuss your presenting problem in your words, taking time for you to share what you feel is relevant. As part of this, I will ask some further questions to help assess your needs and ensure we are best aligned to work together. There is also the opportunity for you to ask questions throughout. 

I also invite you to go through the Core-34 form which is a measurement tool I find very useful to guide our future sessions. Often my clients like seeing their progress too.

We will end our first session with an idea of what your therapy goals are so we can focus our time together going forward.
