Welcome to my website. I am Dr Rosemarie Lynass, a Glasgow-based Counselling Psychologist.
"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change" Carl Rogers
I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist with the British Psychological Society and am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC, registration number PYL 32061). I am also a registered senior accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. As a Counselling Psychologist, I work with clients to understand themselves better, find a way forward with their difficulties and increase their sense of wellbeing. I value individual differences and see the collaborative relationship between myself and my clients as central to my work. I welcome clients from all backgrounds and offer a warm, supportive and flexible approach. I am trained in several therapeutic approaches, including Person-Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy. I adapt my approach to suit individual client needs and will discuss with clients the most suitable approach to take in the first session.
I have worked as a therapist for more than 14 years in a variety of settings, including primary care, the voluntary sector, higher education and schools-based counselling. I have experience of working with adults, adolescents, individuals and couples. As well as my therapeutic work, I am a lecturer in Counselling Psychology at Glasgow Caledonian University and have published research related to clients’ experience of counselling.

What Is Counselling Psychology?
Counselling Psychologists are professional psychologists who specialise in using a range of psychotherapeutic strategies to help clients experiencing a wide range of mental health difficulties. They understand diagnosis and the medical context to mental health difficulties but also emphasise the importance of working with individual clients' uniquely personal experiences in order to find the best way forward for them. Counselling Psychologists place particular importance on building a strong therapeutic relationship with clients and working collaboratively to help them understand themselves better; alleviate distress; move towards recovery and increase their sense of wellbeing.
