Welcome to The Green Rooms. We have provided Counselling, Psychotherapy and Coaching since 2003.

Our offices are in Newton Mearns (G77). We also offer remote appointments via telephone and video call. Home visits may be possible if local to the area.


The Green Rooms works with many practitioners, all of whom are educated to a minimum of post-graduate level in the discipline of Counselling, Psychotherapy, Counselling Psychology, Art Psychotherapy or Coaching.

Our practitioners are all members of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) or the British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT). They all adhere to the relevant code of ethics.

All sessional staff are insured to carry out this work.

Alison BarrDirector
I began practicing full time as a Counsellor in 2003, and as a Psychotherapist and Coach in 2004. I qualified as a Therapeutic Supervisor in 2010. All my qualifications are from the University of Strathclyde.

I really love my work and feel so honoured to learn about other people’s lives, and support them to be as fulfilled as they can be.

If you think you could benefit from sharing the therapy room with a hypo-allergenic, small, fluffy, extremely friendly dog, please let us know.

The welfare of the dog is always our top priority, so we can’t make any guarantees.
