Taking Shape CBT logo

Hi, I’m Thomas. Nice to meet you.

I’m a Cognitive and Behavourial Therapist from the East End of Glasgow. I’ve experience treating clients with anxiety disorders such as generalised anxiety and social anxiety. I’ve worked with many clients who have low-self esteem and low mood.

I employ a collaborative approach with clients, like a driving instructor taking someone for a drive. As time goes on I’ll hand over more control to you until you’re the one confident enough to drive.

I help my clients to identify and challenge negative thoughts and beliefs that are contributing to their anxiety and depression.

My work with university students has included working with challenges, such as academic stress, test anxiety, and social isolation. I can also help students to develop effective study habits and time management skills by increasing their self-esteem and confidence.

I have experience working with group therapy and help run a men’s support group in the Lanarkshire area. I work with a variety of issues, such as relationship problems, work stress, and anger management. I can also help men to develop a more positive sense of self.

What has been interesting is the familiar issues that affect men despite their individual differing backgrounds.

Through my work, I’ve run workshops and information sessions for large corporations, including Police Scotland, on how to improve and better manage mental health.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can help treat a number of issues. Below are some of the issues I’ve worked with.

  • Social Anxiety
  • Generalised Anxiety Disorder
  • Health Anxiety
  • Low-self esteem
  • Depression
  • Low-mood
  • OCD
  • Panic disorder
  • Trauma
  • Relationship issues
  • Homesickness
  • Academic pressures
  • Paternal mental health
  • Stress
  • Self-confidence
  • Work stress
  • Managing burnout

If you’re struggling, it can be difficult to tell someone. I’ve been there. I’m not here to judge you, I’m here to listen. I am committed to providing my clients with high-quality care and helping them to achieve their mental health goals. Let’s work together to put you back in the driving seat, you don’t need to navigate your troubles alone.
