Carole Mayo Donkin
Finding the right therapist for you is important as the relationship between us will form the foundation of any work we do together. I am a person centred counsellor and psychotherapist working from an embodied approach, offering a caring, non-judgemental and confidential service. I believe that you are the expert in your own life and i will do my best to ensure you feel heard and supported as you explore whatever is troubling you and find your own way forward. You will always be at the centre of the work that we do together.
I create a space for us to explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences and together we can help you gain a better understanding and new perspectives for positive changes to occur.
I embrace diversity and welcome enquiries from all sections of society including those who experience themselves as a minority.
I offer 1-hour sessions, usually weekly, at the same time and place. I work in a calm, bright, spacious room based in Templeton House at Glasgow Green which offers free parking, disability access and 24-hour security. It is very easy to access by road and public transport and is within walking distance from Glasgow City Centre.
I am PVG registered and work with anyone aged 5+.
Email or text me and I usually respond within 24 hours.
I look forward to hearing from you.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
