Welcome. My name is Nicola McLean. I am a Cognitive Behavioural and EMDR accredited Consultant therapist with a background in Mental Health Nursing, having qualified in the year 2000.
Working with evidence based psychological therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing Therapy I can help you to understand the pattern and experience of your difficulties and work toward making changes to improve them.
You can discuss your mental health needs with me if you make contact and we can decide if you wish to begin your therapeutic journey based on the services I provide. You can book for single sessions or block booking depending on your preference and needs.
Perhaps you are concerned you have a mental health issue related to past or recent trauma or you could be worried about a current short term stressful situation which you wish to explore.
There are many reasons people enter therapy and I am happy to discuss any of these with you. I am an accredited practitioner with both the BABCP and EMDR association as well as being an NMC UK registered nurse (RMN) and a Scottish NHS Mindfulness Network Therapist/Teacher.
Throughout my years working in mental health services and more recently as a private practitioner I am continually updating my professional education and development.
Over the years I have completed an MSc Psychology in Mental Health, Post Graduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy, Diploma Higher Education in Nursing (RMN), Bsc Professional Studies in Nursing, EMDR training and accreditation, Solution Focused therapy, Mindfulness Teacher Training and regular updates in my chosen therapeutic modalities.
