About CBT Counselling Scotland


"Getting lives back on track"

CBT Counselling Scotland is an independent private provider of specialist Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, EMDR and  Counselling services, which is owned and run by Dr Joe Armstrong. We are skilled in providing evidence-based psychological therapies to individuals and organisations and operate across Central, Tayside and Fife regions of Scotland.

Our Mission

We are dedicated to helping people who are experiencing psychological problems to get their lives back on track by providing a range of specialist and high quality psychological therapies.

Our Values

Compassion: We will bring the qualities of kindness and caring to our work with each client because we value and understand the role a compassionate relationship plays in promoting mental health and wellbeing.

Collaboration: We believe that therapy works best when therapists work in partnership with their clients rather than assume a superior position to them. In practice, this means that we collaborate with our clients to identify their problems and goals and in selecting and tailoring our therapeutic interventions to their specific needs.

Change: Most people come to therapy because they want to change something about their lives. It may be that they want to get rid of negative emotions like depression, anxiety, fear or anger or perhaps to find ways to deal with painful memories or troubled relationships. We have an acute awareness of the distress that accompanies such problems and will ensure that our focus is on helping our clients to overcome their problems as quickly and effectively as possible and, in turn, enhance their wellbeing and quality of life.

Professionalism: We are dedicated to providing the highest possible standards of care to our clients. To achieve this we are committed to adhering rigorously to standards of professional conduct, performance and ethics outlined by the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy (BABCP) and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
