I qualified as a counsellor in 2009 and I am passionate about counselling and the wonderfully amazing way it facilitates change in people’s lives. I experienced this first hand many years ago when my life as I knew it was changed for good. Counselling is not a quick fix and involves an incredible amount of hard work and painful growing and stretching, but sticking with it and trusting the process, is worth it. I am living proof of this.
My previous career was in business management. However, since qualifying as a counsellor, I have worked on a voluntary basis as well as running my own private practice. In addition to this, I run my own training organisation (Greenwood Events) aimed at offering affordable Continuing Professional Development (CPD) workshops for counsellors in Scotland. This enables me to regularly receive CPD which helps me to expand my practice and equips me to work in creative and different ways to help my clients. It also means I keep me up-to-date with the latest developments in the field of counselling. I also previously worked as Practice Manager for a counselling charity in Falkirk.
I work from my home in Milton of Campsie (G66) as well as offices in Falkirk (FK1) and Glasgow (G4 and G40).
I am an Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling. (BACP is a membership organisation and a registered charity that sets standards for therapeutic practice and provides information for therapists, clients of therapy, and the general public).
