Laura Simmons - Counsellor & Psychotherapist - BSc(Hons), PGDip, MBACP
I have 20 years experience of working in Mental Health Services across the NHS and voluntary sector. Since 2017 I have been employed part-time as Manager, Staff Counsellor, Supervisor, and Trainer for a local Counselling Agency. I also run a thriving private practice from my office at home in Aboyne. At this time, due to Covid-19 I am doing the majority of my counselling and supervision work via web-based video, or phone and have completed Certificate-level training in remote counselling.
In 2020 I completed a Certificate in Clinical Supervision, consolidating and building on my knowledge and experience. I'm now pleased to be able to offer Person-Centred Supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists. My hope in my practice with supervisees is that we'll build a relationship of mutual trust and respect which will allow you to share yourself and your work with me, so that I can support you in your practice. I endeavour to facilitate reflection and reflexivity, leading to a deeper understanding of yourself and your process with clients.
I am very happy to offer a free session for us to get to know each other before we decide to go forward with regular meetings.
I look forward to hearing from you.
