About me and my therapy practice

COVID-19 UPDATE -September 2021

Due to the ongoing, unique and unpredictable challenges posed by COVID-19 and the importance to maximise each other’s safe and wellbeing. I continue to offer sessions either by telephone or online though secure video conferencing platforms FOR ALL CLIENTS.

In addition, I am now offering face-to-face sessions, but in the interests of the wellbeing of all my clients and myself I CURRENTLY OFFER FACE TO FACE SESSIONS ONLY TO INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE FULLY VACCINATED. Any Face-to-Face sessions are in line with COVID safety Health and Safety Guidelines. I hope having this protocol in place will support you to feel comfortable attending face to face counselling sessions with me, in these uncertain times and confirm I am fully vaccinated in line with government recommendations and undertake regular lateral flow tests.

If you feel what I offer does not meet your needs, I hope that you might be able to access the support of an alternative counsellors on BACP Directory.

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 19 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.

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 always be possible.

My first session

Please do contact me by email, phone or text to arrange a 1st session and I will respond as soon as possible but at latest by the next working day. I am happy to offer a free 1/2 phone consultation, which can be helpful to consider if I am the right counsellor for you. It also offers the opportunity to discuss a next step and practicalities and options for counselling.

About me and my therapy practice

COVID-19 UPDATE -September 2021

Due to the ongoing, unique, and unpredictable challenges posed by COVID-19 and the importance to maximise each other’s safe and wellbeing. I continue to offer supervision sessions either by telephone or online though secure video conferencing platforms FOR ALL SUPERVISEES.

In addition, I am now offering face-to-face supervision, but in the interests of the wellbeing of all my supervisees, clients, and myself I CURRENTLY OFFER FACE TO FACE SESSIONS ONLY TO INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE FULLY VACCINATED. Any Face-to-Face sessions are in line with COVID safety Health and Safety Guidelines. I hope having this protocol in place will support you to feel comfortable attending face to face supervision sessions with me, in these uncertain times and confirm I am fully vaccinated in line with government recommendations and undertake regular lateral flow tests.

I offer Person Centred Supervision in Paisley or online/phone 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 and Online Counselling. 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.
