Progress mainly uses leading evidence based psychotherapy treatment models based on the CBT approach. This has a strong evidence base and record of effectiveness. This includes modern CBT compatible approaches like schema therapy, MBCT, DBT and CFT to work with a wide range of issues and provide the best treatment possible. 


In session 1 you will define your personal goals and we can work together to make the changes you want to see. We will go on your journey the way that works for you.


Note: We are currently operating a 8-12 week waiting list. It is hoped we can reduce this soon. 


You can self-refer online with the form below or download it and email it to the therapist you want to see. We then send you over a contract to sign and you are ready to go.

Robert is an accredited cognitive behavioural therapist with a Postgraduate Diploma in CBT (SCQF level 11). He has experience of working with anxiety disorders, depression, OCD, anger, self-harming behaviours, low self-esteem, BPD and more. Robert has achieved positive treatment outcomes with hundreds of clients. Robert is Progress founder and main therapist.

Robert has an honours degree in Psychology from the University of Strathclyde, focusing on self-esteem for his own research. Robert founded Progress in 2019 as a way to bring therapy to as many people as possible. Robert felt that therapy is key to mental health for many people but is often inaccessible. “Private therapy often ranges from £50-80 per session. I didn’t feel comfortable with the idea of therapy being something only people of a high income can access. There are many wonderful organisations offering free services but waiting lists can be months or years long. I wanted to use my skills and qualifications to make it accessible for as many people as possible privately. Walking with clients on their journey has been such an honour”.

To arrange a booking or if you have any questions, you can contact Robert by email or Facebook. Alternatively, he can be called on 07544940018.
