About me and my therapy practice

COVID-19 UPDATE and Face to Face Counselling

We are all facing challenges, due the current corona virus outbreak and keeping ourselves and others safe and well important. In line with UK government advice for social distancing and minimising face to face contact with others I am unable to offer Face to Face counselling sessions until this changes. However, I am happy to offer sessions either by telephone or online though secure video conferencing platforms. I have 11 years experiencing working as a telephone counsellor and have experience and hold a certificate in Online Counselling that gives me an understanding of the particular aspects of this way of working with clients and I am happy to support you at this time when seeing a counsellor face to face may not be possible.

I work in private practice as a person-centred counsellor and supervisor at Threads Counselling in Paisley, offering short-term and long-term counselling & supervision. With over 16 years’ experience as a counsellor, a background in general and psychiatric nursing and 11+ years’ experience working for an EAP as counsellor and manager, I find the breadth of experience I have gained allows me to work alongside clients, with a wide range of issues - supporting and empowering them to find their best way forward from their current difficulties or life challenges to live a more fulfilling life.

COVID-19 UPDATE and Face to Face Supervision

We are all facing challenges, due the current corona virus outbreak and keeping ourselves and others safe and well important. In line with UK government advice for social distancing and minimising face to face contact with others I am unable to offer Face to Face Supervision sessions until this changes. However, I am happy to offer sessions either by telephone or online though secure video conferencing platforms. I have 11 years experiencing working as a telephone counsellor and have experience and hold a certificate in Online Counselling that gives me an understanding of the aspects of this way of working with clients.

I offer Person Centred Supervision in Paisley and particularly enjoy the relational aspects of this work: supporting; developing and growing counsellor’s self-awareness and clinical competence in their practice and clinical work with clients. I have over 11 years’ experience working in an EAP context as a Telephone & Face to Face counsellor and clinical manager supporting a team of counsellors and have a firm understanding Solution Focused Brief therapy and Telephone Counselling. The creative supervision training I completed can bring an offer of creativity to supervision that can be helpful understanding client processes and the counselling relationship in this.

My experience in assessing and managing client risk I also find helpful in my supervision work alongside my background in general and Mental Health Nursing. I have experience of Critical Incident on site support, psychological First Aid and the impact of this work on clinicians. I also have experience of supervision in a Hospice setting.
