Jennifer McMillan Psychotherapist & Counsellor MBACP
I am a qualified Person-Centered Counsellor, registered with the BACP.
Within my private practice, based in East Kilbride, I offer a safe place for you to explore your feelings and experiences, helping you to make sense of things.
I work with both individuals and couples in a non-judgmental, confidential way.
I know first hand what it can be like when life becomes overwhelming, when we feel there is no where to turn, having the opportunity to talk openly with a therapist can help.
Training, qualifications & experience
I offer non-directive therapy, encouraging, supporting and guiding you through your process of self-discovery.
Person-centered therapy enables you to take more of a lead in discussions so that, in the process, you will discover your own solutions.
Asking for help takes courage and considering therapy may feel daunting. Choosing the best therapist for you is so important and I always suggest an initial call together first to make sure you would feel comfortable with us working together.
If you want to arrange that first conversation or if you perhaps just want to have an informal chat about how therapy might help, please do get in touch.
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 want to ensure counselling is inclusive, available to all, therefore I offer special rates for students and those currently on lower incomes.
The first, initial, telephone consultation is free of charge.
Concessions offered for
Asking for help takes courage and considering therapy may feel daunting. But it will help. Having a space to talk, to be listened to, where you're met with support, acceptance and understanding really helps.
