Counselling Psychologist | Practitioner Psychologist
Dr. Áine Lombard is a highly qualified and experienced Counselling Psychologist (CPsychol) and a registered Practitioner Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Since moving to Scotland from Ireland in 2011 to complete the doctoral programme at Glasgow Caledonian University, she has worked in a variety of settings; from community and charitable organisations, to universities and healthcare centres.
Over the last five years, Áine has been employed in the NHS working therapeutically with adults exhibiting various presentations and levels of severity. As a result of this experience she developed specific interests in working with individuals experiencing and adjusting to long term physical health conditions and has a particular interest in health behaviour change and the impact of sleep, nutrition and exercise on stress management and overall emotional wellbeing. Furthermore, Áine has amassed vast experience in working with other psychological difficulties including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, personality disorders, and trauma. This experience has honed Áine’s knowledge and skill set in such a way as to enable precise and trustworthy assessments, formulations and planned treatments, while always providing a clientcentric approach to working.
In her spare time, Áine enjoys working out in the early morning, long walks in the Ochil hills and travelling.
