I qualified as a Person Centred Counsellor in 2006 and describe myself as an Integrative Counsellor and Supervisor.
I have worked full time in the voluntary sector for many years in both Aberdeen and Glasgow and in 2011, I completed a year long training course in the Supervision of Individuals and Groups at Strathclyde University. This course taught me a variety of approaches and tools to use in supervision and I am flexible in my approach while still maintaining my person centred values and skills.
In terms of the experience I bring, I have worked in alcohol, drug and mental health services throughout my working life with young people and adults. I also tutored on the COSCA Counselling Skills course in Aberdeen for two years before moving to Glasgow.
I am accustomed to the workings of dedicated counselling services and counsellors working within a multi-disciplinary setting. I have not worked in statutory services but have often worked alongside them.
In 2011, my career took me into a Senior Management role of a large counselling and group work service and I also maintained a small caseload of supervisees. I was in this role for nearly five years.
In the last 12 months, I have established my own private practice in Garmouth and am now ready to offer supervision to trainee and qualified counsellors and managers of services.
