About Danny McBrideAbout me

Born, brought up, lived and worked in Glasgow.

An easy going, relaxed, trustworthy and non judgemental kind of guy with a positive outlook and helping disposition towards others - regardless of background, current circumstances, or plight.

A guy with considerable life, relationship, work and counselling and coaching experience. Solid and centred, sensitive and caring.

Followed my vocation of wanting to help others by retraining and going into counselling and life coaching work after a career in the public sector in a variety of different areas including social work.

Someone who has experienced many ups and downs in his own life and relationships but whose inner resilience has stood him in good stead.

A guy who finds counselling and life coaching others is extremely challenging and demanding but also very fulfilling.

Particularly keen to offer his counselling and life coaching abilities to people in need.

My Approach to counselling and life coaching

My view is that we are all unique individuals, and effective counselling or coaching needs to be shaped to meet your own personal needs.

My professional counselling training is in person centred counselling. Please see my "About Counselling" page, for further information.

However, I do not believe in a 'one size fits all' approach to counselling or life coaching, and tend to use an integrative or mixed approach in therapy.

I will strive to help you develop your own resilience and inner strength.

My overall objective however, is always the same - to do my very best to offer you an opportunity to ease any discomfort and improve your wellbeing, and to help you discover your own new direction in life.

My Professional Training

I have professional qualifications in counselling and people management, and other qualifications in business studies and public administration.

I continually try to learn as much as I can to develop my own personal approach to counselling and coaching.

That helps improve my own understanding of how people can be helped to cope with life.

I learn most of all from my clients.

I actively encourage feedback from my clients, and adapt and change my therapy based on the feedback I receive.
