Established 2022

I'm Irene and I have experience on both sides of the therapy space. Back in 2012 I first experienced feeling overwhelmed and found it difficult finding the right support.

I have been a qualified therapist in the CBT approach since 2022 and have worked with people in a therapeutic environment since 2020.

I am based in Glasgow, Scotland but with having an online presence, this means anyone can gain support from me.


I want to provide a safe space for all as well as continuing my professional development and gaining new skills which will be shared and updated on the CPD section.

I have regular Supervision sessions, this includes monthly one-to-one sessions, group sessions and peer sessions.
