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!
I work as the Practice Manager for a counselling charity in Falkirk. I also have my own private practice and have recently completed the Counselling Supervisors course at the University of Strathclyde. In addition to this, I run my own training organisation (Greenwood Events) aimed at counsellors and therefore regularly receive Continuing Professional Development which helps to expand my practice and allows me to work in creative and different ways to help my clients. In addition, it serves to keep me up-to-date with new developments in the field of counselling.
I work from my home in Milton of Campsie and offices in Falkirk and Kirkintilloch.
I am a Registered 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).
