I mainly work from my private practice at home in Dundonnell, Wester Ross but due to the remoteness of the area, I can arrange home visits and do sessions by Skype(video calling). Normally I see clients on a weekly basis, to begin with, this is important in developing a rapport and trust in the therapeutic relationship. As we progress this can be extended to a fortnightly or monthly basis, each client is different.
I work with presence and awareness whilst holding empathy and non-judgemental support, focusing on how you are in life now and what is blocking or interrupting you from a wholly satisfying life. I can work with all issues from anxiety, depression, bereavement, post-traumatic stress and relationship problems to personal development. I also provide a stress management program which provides tools to deal with anxiety and self-confidence. If you think I can support you please contact me to find out more about me and what I can offer.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold an Advanced Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling(with Distinction) from a BACP approved course. I graduated in 2012 from The College of Holistic Medicine in Glasgow, after 3 years of study and practice. Since then I was a participant in a Psychotherapy group from 2015 to 2017 working deeply with awareness, presence and heart connection.
I have been delivering therapy and counselling at the local G.P surgery for over 3 years and have also developed my private practice from my house in Dundonnell, Wester Ross. I am committed to Continuing Professional Development, attending courses and workshops regularly. I am a registered member of BACP, (Membership number: 375487), which ensures I follow their ethical and practical guidelines, one of which is 1.5hours of clinical supervision every month.
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.
