I am an Accredited Counsellor with COSCA and work within the COSCA’s ethical framework. I have undergone training in supervision and have been awarded the COSCA Counselling Supervision Certificate.
I have my own private practice in the southside of Glasgow. I also rent offices at Spiersbridge House in Thornliebank G46 and Jacobean House, The Village in East Kilbride G74 4LY
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 been working in the Scottish Prison Service for the past 7 years.
I am a trainer and run workshops to help other counsellors build their private practice. I also offer one to one sessions for those seeking advice on building their private practice.
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 meeting to have a chat and get a feel for how we might work together.
Online and/or Face-to-Face work:
I can support your client work whether it is online or face-to-face counselling that you offer. It is important that we understand the different psychological processes that affect our clients by the way we work.
I am currently running group supervision on the first Wednesday evening of every month. We meet in my East Kilbride office. The purpose of this group is to provide a safe and supportive space for counsellors to discuss their client work and meet with other counsellors. You are very welcome to join this friendly group of counsellors.
