Cassandra Hunter PgDip Msc Counselling & Psychotherapy Reg'MBACP (Accred')
I offer you a professional, confidential and fully insured counselling and psychotherapy service.
I am interested in your personal journey and what has brought you to this point in your life - perhaps you are surprised to find yourself here, perhaps not.
You may have survived a trauma, many trauma's, a bereavement or other painful loss/change. Your experiences in life may have led you towards coping strategies that no longer serve you. You may be struggling with family, relationship issues or unsure how to walk through life as your true self, without depression, panic nor anxiety.
I understand the precariousness of trust and how it can only be built through mutual respect and at your own pace. I am not interested in telling you what you must do but I am fully committed to working together to find out the answers that are right for you.
I bring my experience; both professional and personal. I bring my curiosity for you and for life, I bring my empathy and my honesty.
Even the most resilient and independent of us may need extra support at times, indeed it is a measure of your strength and resourcefulness to seek it.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Training, qualifications & experience
After gaining my COSCA counselling certificate, I then graduated with a Postgraduate Diploma in Person-Centered Counselling from Strathclyde University, Glasgow. Following this I spent a year living in New Zealand where I had the privilege to work as a counsellor for a multi-cultural community centre in Nelson, South Island.
Returning to Scotland and to my studies I undertook an Msc in Integrative Psychotherapy.
Since then I have been working in both the private and charitable sectors, focusing on trauma work, addictions, relationship issues, depression, anxiety and bereavement amongst others.
I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and am currently studying to become a qualified clinical supervisor.
I am committed to regular ongoing supervision and professional studies to ensure my work is ethically sound and of a high standard. I attend seminars on the neuroscience of trauma to ensure my work is up to date with a good theoretical background. At various stages in my life I have attended therapy of my own as I feel that a good understanding of myself is crucial to providing good therapy.
My work is grounded by the person-centered theory and is influenced by mindfulness, existentialism, neuroscience and the mind-body connection.
I am ASIST (suicide intervention) trained.
