Roslin Macdonald, PMCOSCA, Dip & Clinical Supervisor
I am an experienced Counsellor and a registered Practitioner Member of COSCA as well as a Clinical Supervisor registered with COSCA. I also provide personal & business Coaching. I live and work in private practice in Glasgow, City Centre and Newton Mearns.
I work one-to-one with Individuals using an 'integrative' approach which means that I use a number of different types of counselling methods to make sure that you get the help and support you need in order to make meaningful and effective changes in your life so that you feel happier, more in control and more fulfilled.
I also provide counselling and coaching to couples and individuals experiencing difficulties in their relationships. There could be a breakdown in communication, an affair, financial worries, loss of trust or just a relationship MOT needed.
Some recent client feedback
"Ros has helped me to navigate through a very difficult time in my life. She has given me support and guidance to move forward with my life. I cannot thank her enough for everything she has done."
"It is amazing how quickly you can change yourself by simply talking. Seeing Ros has allowed me to find myself again, allowing me to pursue goals and dreams. I was once in a bad place however with Ros's help I have found confidence and I am now pursuing a degree as a mature student. Talking helps and I am truly grateful to the help Ros has given me"
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma in Integrative Counselling as well as Relationship Coaching and a COSCA Practitioner and Registered Clinical Supervision. I work with both individuals and for couples. I also undertake frequent advanced professional learning. I also have PVG (Protection of Vulnerable Groups) Registration with Disclosure Scotland. In addition to this I am also a skilled Facilitator and Trainer available to work in Glasgow and the surrounding areas.
In addition to my Counselling my previous business background included Sales, Accountancy, Relationship Management, Team Building, Mentoring and Personal Development across a number of different areas. As a result of this wider experience I am acutely aware of the pressures and stress of the commercial and corporate world as well as the impact of inter-personal relationships on our ability to perform, create and be happy.

‘Who am I?’ What an interesting question!
Friends, colleagues and clients would say I am ‘passionately curious, highly intuitive, warm, empathic, like a dog with a bone, down to earth, inspiring, insightful, straight talking and funny’. Generous words! I on the other hand experience myself as ‘a happy, loving and intensely curious woman, passionate about people and constantly seeking knowledge, wisdom, mastery and connection’.
These two very different answers reflect that I cannot truly know who I am unless I allow myself the joy and the pain of being in relationship – irrespective of whether it is intimate, social or business in nature.
I believe that I offer my clients a unique, relaxed, empathetic yet professional relationship in order to help them to understand and accept who they are, while giving them tools and strategies to manage the many challenges that they may be facing in life.
