About me

Hi I’m Jennifer and I am a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor. 

I am based in East Kilbride and through face to face, online or telephone session, I can provide you with a safe space to explore your feelings and experiences, helping you to make sense of things.

I know first hand what it can be like when life becomes overwhelming, when we feel there is nowhere to turn. Having the opportunity to talk openly with a therapist can really help.

I work with both individuals and couples in a confidential, non judgemental way.

Training, qualifications & experience

In addition to my adult private therapy practice, I also currently provide therapy to children within primary schools as a counsellor with Place2Be.

I have been fortunate to have worked with many other counselling organisations in central Scotland supporting people with a range of issues;

-Marie Curie Hospice - supporting family members dealing with loss

-Tom Alan Centre/Crossreach - supporting and counselling people with concerns such as anxiety, depression, chronic illness and abuse

-Time for Talking - providing therapy to employees of large organisations

-Lifelink - counselling and assessment for those dealing with issues such as OCD, grief and substance abuse

My qualifications include;

- Post Graduate Diploma in Psychological Wellbeing, Counselling and Psychotherapy (Person Centred)

- COSCA Certificate in Counselling Skills

- Mindfulness practitioner

- Working with Attachment issues

- Counselling online

- Child Protection certificate

- Adult Safeguarding

- Business coach and mentor

- BACP Registered member

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Further information

Asking for help takes courage and considering therapy may feel daunting. Choosing the right therapist for you is so important and it's difficult when all you really have to go on is a picture and some brief details!  I always suggest an initial call together to make sure you would feel comfortable with us working together and to ensure I am the best therapist to support your needs. 

Person-centered therapy enables you to take more of a lead in our discussions so that, in the process, you will discover your own solutions.  I will work with you in a non-directive way, encouraging, supporting and guiding you through your process of self-discovery.

It's important to know that therapy can feel a bit difficult at times, but know that  as you explore your feelings and experiences I will be there to support you.  Although challenging at times, therapy can also be really enlightening and we will celebrate life's good moments together too.

If you want to arrange that first conversation or if you perhaps just want to have an informal chat together about how therapy might help, please do get in touch.
