Caroline Macphie MSc Counselling & Psychotherapy MBACP (Reg)
A warm welcome to my profile, thank you for visiting.
I am a fully qualified person-centred Counsellor based in Glasgow's West End.
I currently offer 1:1 counselling to individuals via video link. With the option of outdoor sessions available, I aim to make therapy as accessible and comfortable, as possible. Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, I am unable to offer face-to-face appointments at the time being.
I understand that choosing to go for counselling can be daunting, but it can also be the first steps on an incredibly rewarding journey. I offer a free telephone consultation, to allow you to ask me any questions you may have. Together we can explore if counselling is the right option for you at this time. Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to find out more.
I work with adults, children and young people.
I have completed post-qualification training in online therapy.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am qualified to Masters level in Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of Strathclyde. I have also undertaken advanced training in Emotion-Focused Therapy allowing me to work in an evidence-based manner, adapting my skills to best match what you need from counselling. I can offer a safe, warm and calming space for you to explore what is going on for you.
As a person-centred counsellor, I work from the foundational belief that you as the client, are the expert of your own life. I believe that everyone has their own answers and given a supportive environment to explore your concerns and emotions, you will be able to draw upon your own inner resources, to find clarity and confidence.
Having worked for many years in the mental health field as a registered Occupational Therapist, I offer a holistic approach allowing you the time and space to find a way forward, at your own pace.
I have undertaken post-qualification training in working therapeutically with children & young people.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I believe that counselling should be accessible to all and would prefer to discuss fees on an individual basis. Please feel free to get in touch and together we can come to an arrangement that works for you.
Sessions usually last one hour but I am happy to arrange a longer sessions up to 90 minutes, if preferred.
