Hi I'm Jenny and I am available for Individual Counselling sessions in Cumbernauld (Cornerstone House, Town Centre) during Weekday Evenings (Between 6 and 9pm) .
Are you struggling with a particular problem or to cope with changes or loss in your life? Feeling anxious, stressed or low and overwhelmed?Struggling to change unwanted behaviours or habits?
Perhaps you are impacted by experiences in your past? Having difficulties in relationships or in forming meaningful relationships?
You may not feel listened to or able to talk to others in your life about how your feeling.
If so Counselling could benefit you.
I offer an experienced Person Centred approach to Counselling which can help you to gain a greater understanding and acceptance of yourself and to find solutions to your problems in a safe and confidential environment.
Counselling can enable you to work towards leading a more fulfilling life, to make personal changes,improve relationships, or to work towards further personal development- whatever your needs may be.
I provide a warm, welcoming therapeutic environment where the issues important to you are focused on- we will work towards the changes you desire.
I utlise the Person Centred approach but integrate other thereaupetic techniques for instance such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy to manage anxiety or address negative thinking patterns.
I am an accredited Alcohol and Drugs Counsellor with over 4 years experience in this area (as an Alcohol Counsellor with the Glasgow Council on Alcohol).
I also have specialist experience and training in Bereavement Counselling, (through Cruse Bereavement Care), Student Counselling (on placement as a student counsellor at Glasgow University) and Employee Counselling (Employee Counsellor at East Dunbartonshire Council).
Some of the issues/areas I may be able to help you with that I worked with previously include:
Life changes or events such as a Bereavement,
Abuse and Trauma,
Mental Health issues such as Depression and Anxiety disorders,
Mood related issues such as Low mood, anxiety and Anger issues
Achieving Personal Goals or making desired Changes,
Addictions (such as Alcohol/Drugs/Gambling)
Supporting loved ones with addiction
Understanding and Accepting yourself more fully,
Building Confidence and Self Esteem,
Changing negative thinking patterns

I am a Counsellor member with COSCA and I work within the boundaries of their 'Statement of Ethics and Codes of Practice: www.cosca.org.uk
I am passionate about the safe and ethical delivery of counselling in Scotland .
I also work part time with COSCA overseeing the Recognition Scheme for Organisations which is a quality assurance scheme for counselling organisations in Scotland.
Alongside my business partner we have recently set up our own organisation 'Thrive West of Scotland Counselling and Wellbeing Services': www.thrivewestofscotland.co.uk
