About me

I am an experienced relationship counsellor who offers a completely confidential, non judgemental service to couples and individuals, who want to explore their thoughts and feelings about their relationships in a safe environment. People often come because they are not communicating well, sometimes there has been a change in circumstances, they may have lost the warmth of their relationship or trust in one another. For others childhood experiences and coping strategies may be a barrier to making and maintaining adult relationships. Ultimately peoples reasons for seeking help are as diverse as the people themselves but together we work to discover what have been the problems within the relationship and look at ways to overcome, in a way that is specific to the needs of each couple or individual.

I also provide supervision for counsellors as individuals or in groups and can provide C.P.D. in understanding anger or conflict resolution. I have written the Janet Brown Relationship Course. This course has been created to support anyone who wants to improve relationships either in the work place or at home and can be facilitated for groups of 6 or more.

Further information about the services that I offer can be found at www.jbrc-ayr.co.uk.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • H.N.C. in counselling at Ayr College
  • Diploma in couples counselling with Relationships Scotland
  • Diploma in Supervision with Relationships Scotland
  • Diploma in Training and Development from TED
  • Diploma in Sex and Relationships

Inspired by a sixteen week training program, in 2002, to become a pregnancy crisis adviser I went on to do a two year H.N.C. in counselling at Craigie College in 2004. After completing my H.N.C. in 2006 I went on to volunteer for Couple Counselling Scotland where I completed a three year diploma course (DiCC). I opened my private practice in Ayr in 2008 and continued my studies by completing Relationships Scotland’s, (formerly Relate Scotland), Diploma in Supervision of Case Work. and a Diploma in Sex and Relationship. I now divide my time between my private practice based in Ayr and Glasgow and working with Relationships Scotland as supervisor, trainer, sex therapist and counsellor.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
