Marie Rodger (PGDip)
Qualified CBT therapist, Hypnotherapist & Life Coach.
Only Psy-Tap practitioner in the north west of Scotland.
After many years in both the hairdressing industry and the healthcare sector, I became curious about the experiences and issues that people expressed in their everyday lives. I became curious as to how these impacted on both their personal and professional life in an ongoing fashion, quite often in a maladaptive way.
The numerous stories shared from people over the years although very different, had overlapping themes that drew me. I decided that if I was in a listening role that I already enjoyed, then why not learn the relevant skills that would allow me to indulge my passionate belief that everyone has the right,no matter their background, given the assistance and support required can be the architect of their own lives.
I believe we are all born with an inherent knowledge of ourselves and an emotional blueprint so to speak designed to guide us, but it gets lost in the voices and beliefs of others in our lives even those well meaning in their guidance.We lose track of our own inner voice and some of us get lost in maladaptive thinking and feelings which create behaviours that are often unhealthy. Whether its traumatic life events or belief systems that convince us we are not loveable,good enough or smart enough to achieve the things we want, these can be changed.
Science is regularly presenting new evidence that supports that these changes can be made in our neural pathways ( neural plasticity). Dont worry im not going to go all geek on you.That you can do all on your own if you're interested!
It is my vision to help people create and build that emotional resilience in a positive and healthy way that allows them to move forward in their lives to a destination of their choice on a road that they have the skills to navigate no matter the terrain.
I offer fast techniques for many issues, and on regular occasions can require only one session. Phobias and anxieties can be shifted in this way.
I use many integrative modalities tailored to each individuals needs.
Visit in person for a peaceful and supportive non judgemental environment where any issues can be explored with genuine empathy and compassion.Sometimes just taking that first step and sharing can bring changes and growth in many areas of psychological well being.
Skype sessions also available.
