Welcome to westend counselling. I am Ginny Styles, a BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behaviour Therapist working in private practice in Glasgow.
Face-to-face appointments take place in Glasgow’s west end, and I also provide remote sessions by video and phone.
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 young adults, and I also work with adults who want to overcome short- or long-term issues in their lives.
Much of my work is with teenagers (12+), and I have valuable experience in using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to help 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, autism, ADHD, self-harm, exam stress, low self-esteem, disordered eating and bullying.
I work with adults too and have experience of working with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, autism, ADHD, low self-esteem, trauma, drug and alcohol misuse 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, autism, ADHD, work overload, loneliness, drug & alcohol misuse and relationship problems.
Neurodiversity – Autism, Aspergers, ADHD/ADD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, Tourette’s
I have specialised knowledge of and expertise in working with children, teens and adults with autism/Asperger’s, ADHD/ADD and other neurodevelopmental conditions. I adapt CBT for working with neurodiversity, and can provide a range of information, support and counselling for individuals pre- and post-diagnosis. I also support parents, partners and other family members in understanding their child/sibling/partner and providing the support they need.
