My name is Karen Snadden and I am a Cognitive Behaviour Therapist.

My Regulatory Body – British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Registered member 391998

I am a cognitive behaviour therapist, who is passionate about helping to improve the mental health of individuals. I work from The Wellbeing Rooms in both Bearsden and Stepps and also online via Zoom. 

Sometimes we just need someone to listen to us without judgement. I can help with developing healthier coping strategies and reducing negative thought patterns. Although cognitive behaviour therapy is the main modality that I work with, I also have experience with schema therapy. Schema therapy aims to change negative patterns or beliefs that people have lived with for a long time. The longstanding patterns or themes are called 'schema's'. These schemas typically develop early in our life 

Working collaboratively on conditions such as anxiety disorders, depression/low mood, stress, and trauma related difficulties I can help to provide useful tools and techniques that will help you progress and heal. I aim to provide a safe and confidential space to work through issues and will use other evidenced based therapeutic approaches to suit individual needs, such as compassion focused therapy and mindfulness.

Pet Bereavement - Lives are transformed by the love and companionship pets bring. So, saying goodbye to one – whether due to death or separation – is always sad, difficult and often traumatic. It affects people in many ways. Having over 30 years' experience in this area, I can listen with compassion and understanding. 

I often hear that friends, family or colleagues don’t quite understand the upset that losing a pet can bring, and grieving for a pet can be a very lonely experience. Sometimes it helps to share these feelings with someone who knows, from personal experience, how distressing pet loss can be, and who will listen with compassion and without judgement.
