I am an experienced Person Centred Counsellor/Supervisor with over 15 years counselling experience including time spent in Perth, Australia and Tampa, USA specialising in complex trauma, sexuality and fertility issues. I enjoy exploring and working with diversity. I am trained in Emotion focussed therapy, EMDR and couples counselling. My experience enables me to offer a safe, grounding environment to unpack issues which are effecting you. I enjoy offering supportive Supervision to students, counsellors and key workers employed in the helping professions.
My focus is to allow you a safe place to talk about all that concerns you. By becoming aware of your inner strengths you may find acceptance of what has occurred. We achieve this together by providing a neutral, safe space, I listen to your concerns, and by working together we make sense of your world.
I promise to walk alongside you as you walk through your journey. We will work together to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life.
Recognising I valued the one to one in-depth relationship with clients I studied the Postgraduate Person Centred Counselling, Supervision and further training in EMDR, Emotion focussed therapy and couples therapy. I have been employed by NHS GG&C for nearly 15 years. I am an accredited counsellor with BACP and BICA and follow BACP's Ethical framework.
I love the energy found in Supervision, nuturing and supporting supervisees witnessing them grown and develop and being a part of that. I have offered Supervision for 9 years to trainee counsellors in the Person centred approach, Counselling Psychologists, Charity support workers and those in the helping professions.
I deliver training around counselling, the psychological impact of trauma, psychological impact of fertility issues and participate in well being workshops for Glasgow City council.
I work part time managing and working as a fertility counselling at the Assisted Conception Service in Glasgow offering therapeutic support to those engaging with the roller coaster journey of treatment. I offer support to individuals and couples navigating the decisions around considering donor conception, surrogacy, fertility preservation if affected by cancer or those wanting to store gametes before transitioning. Some couples may find there are unprocessed issues deriving from secondary infertility or having a baby conceived through IVF.
Many clients may experience post traumatic stress disorder from a key traumatic event. I work primarily offering stabilisation techniques before working with you to process the event. EMDR can be particularly effective for doing this is and is recommended by NICE guidance.
I offer online counselling and Supervision sessions in addition to face to face. This offers you more flexibility and convenience from the comfort of your home.
I offer free 'get to know you' short sessions over the phone to discuss further what you hope to achieve from counselling.
