About me and my therapy practice
Hi there and thank you for visiting my page,
My name is Aileen and I am a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor working in the Glasgow City /Kelvingrove area. I am a member of the BACP, PVG and hold my own insurance. I am also an experienced free-lance trainer and lecturer of counselling, I have been working in all three areas for over 5 years, and feel they compliment each other very well.
In addition to private practice I have also spent significant time working for Crossreach, Scotland and the Lesbian and Gay Foundation, Manchester’s counselling services. Prior to my counselling career I was employed in the homeless sector and within a Macmillan Cancer Support funded programme.
Taking the decision to come to counselling can be an exciting or daunting one. The aim of person-centred counselling and how I work, is to help build a trusting relationship in order for you to explore the issues that are concerning you.
Having this neutral space can allow you to strengthen your self-esteem, identity, decision and choice making abilities regarding your life. It can also have the potential to help you make peace or gain understanding of the past so that you can start living in the present. I aim to provide a professional and relaxed atmosphere in order for you to explore what you need.
I have significant experience working with:
Loss, grief, bereavement
Change and transition in life
Exploring LGBTQ identity
I have availability on Fridays ONLY. My fees are £40 per 50 minute session. I can see clients on a flexible basis weekly/fortnightly, regular sessions are usually most effective for therapeutic change. Please note I also have a 24-hour cancellation policy.
As a member of BACP I work within their ethical guidelines and also partake in regular supervision and cpd.
