Mental health blog



Welcome to my blog; my name is Linda Cowan. I hold a Master’s degree in Counselling and Therapeutic Communication (University of Ulster, Jordanstown), which has provided me with a solid foundation to navigate the complexities of mental health. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and my accredited status is with the Association of Christian Counsellors (ACC).  These affiliations are a testament to my commitment to upholding the highest standards of practice and ethical considerations in the field.


Since embarking on my journey in 2010, I have had the privilege of working in both Private Practice and the Voluntary sector. I have witnessed first-hand the transformative power of empathetic, client-centred therapy. My experiences have enriched my understanding and fuelled my desire to share my knowledge and insights with a broader audience.


As a published author, I have contributed to the field through works such as “CBT Techniques for Negative Thinking,” “Travel Light: A Handbook for Mental Health,” “CBT Workbook for Low Self-Esteem,” “Declutter Your House and Make It a Home,” and “Journal for Christian Women.” These publications reflect my holistic approach to mental health, integrating Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques with practical advice for everyday living, all while considering the spiritual dimensions of well-being for those who find strength in faith.


This blog aims to be a resource for anyone seeking to understand more about mental health, whether you are navigating your mental health journey, supporting a loved one, or simply interested in learning more about the subject. Here, you will find insights drawn from evidence-based practices, personal observations, and the collective wisdom of the mental health community.

Join me as we embark on this journey, fostering a supportive environment where we can learn, grow, and navigate mental health challenges with compassion, knowledge, and resilience.
