I trained in Supervision at the Tom Allan Centre (COSCA Certificate). I also gained valuable experience as a counselling service manager for many years, where I supported counsellors through a wide range of professional and ethical challenges. My main perspective is psychodynamic, though I specialise in time limited and short term work. I am happy to supervise counsellors (and others) working from other perspectives.
COSCA is the professional body for counselling and psychotherapy in Scotland, and seeks to advance all forms of counselling and psychotherapy and the use of counselling skills by promoting best practice and through the delivery of a range of sustainable services. COSCA Counsellor Accreditation is a pathway to entry onto the UKRC.
It is a requirement of all individual and organisational members of COSCA to abide by its Statement of Ethics and Code of Practice and be accountable to the Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
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).
