  • >Supervisor Alison Gallacher, COSCA Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist.

I am an Accredited Counsellor with COSCA and work within the COSCA’s ethical framework. I have my own private practice in the southside of Glasgow. I also rent a room at Spiersbridge House in Thornliebank G46.

I am trained in Integrative Counselling using Person-Centred, CBT and Psychodynamic approaches. I am comfortable working with supervisees from other theoretical backgrounds and approaches. 

I have experience of working with individuals and with couples. I have experience of working in the Scottish Prison Service for the past 6 years. 

I am a trainer and have run workshops on building private practice to help other counsellors. 

My aim is to offer counselling supervision in a safe, relaxed space for you to reflect on your work and your therapy. I bring patience, humour, honesty, and a non-judgemental attitude to our supervision relationship. I will encourage and support you to reflect on personal and professional issues that are influencing your practice. I provide space in our sessions for you to explore feelings that are difficult or uncomfortable; or those that make you unsure of what is going on in your sessions. 

I will encourage you to consider your self-care so that you can be there to help your clients.  My aim is to help you to grow as a therapist, keep professional boundaries and work to a professional standard. 

As the supervision relationship is so important to your work, I would be happy to meet with prospective supervisees for an initial exploratory session to get a feel for how we might work together.

Please contact me for further details.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access
