welcome

Welcome to westend counselling. I am Ginny Styles, a BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist working in private practice in Glasgow’s west end.

I provide a safe and confidential space for my clients to explore the problems and issues they bring to therapy. I specialise in working with teenagers, and I also work with students and adults who want to overcome short- or long-term issues in their lives.

Teenagers
Much of my work is with teenagers (12+),  and I have valuable experience in using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to them resolve their problems. Providing support at this crucial time helps them to lead happier lives and to realise their potential. I can help with anxiety, depression, anger & aggression, difficult family relationships, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, self-harm, exam stress, low self-esteem, eating disorders and bullying.

Adults
I work with adults too and have experience of working with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, low self-esteem, trauma addictions (drug and alcohol in particular) and stress. Or if you find that life is getting on top of you and you are struggling to cope, CBT can help too.

Students & young adults
Young adults can face a number of challenges and change when they leave school, start work, leave home or start at university or college. These pressures can impact on their academic performance, career prospects and relationships. I have experience of working with young adults and students with depression, anxiety, exam stress, self-harm, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, work overload, loneliness, drug & alcohol addiction and relationship problems.

Autism & Aspergers
I have specialised knowledge of autism and expertise in working with children, teens and adults with autism and Aspergers. I adapt CBT for working with autism and can provide a range of information, support and counselling for individuals pre- and post-diagnosis. I also support parents and other family members in understanding autism in their child and providing the support they need.
