Would you be willing to add your name to a list of PCA practitioners in Scotland who are prepared to be contacted by members, counselling trainees or recent graduates (who are also members of PCT Scotland) and consulted on ways in which to connect/network with other members and discuss various practical issues that might be around for them?

At a recent Co-ordinating Group meeting of PCT Scotland, it was noted that on one of the postcards which map the long and winding road of the organisation, it mentions mentoring and someone asked how that was offered. It transpired there is no official system and so we discussed ways in which we could support and share information and experience with those starting out on their PCT journey and beyond. Some members noted that they already offered this kind of support, in a casual capacity, and we felt it might be valuable to instigate a more official system.

It has yet to be fully thought through. However, essentially the idea would be that there would be a list of names and contact details on the PCT Scotland website (accessible to members only) who would be prepared to offer their time now and then (via email, phone or in person) to members, trainees or recent graduates who may wish to consult with someone, perhaps more experienced, regarding any queries and issues they may have:- starting a private practice, working in a non- PCA therapeutic environment, networking and connecting with other PCA counsellors and therapists, to name but a few.

We felt this would be a great way to demonstrate the supportive nature of the PCT Scotland community as well as offer a tangible benefit in becoming a member. We are hoping that we would then have volunteer connectors all over Scotland and that this may also inspire the formation of local networking groups.

If this is something you would be willing to add your name to, please register your interest, in the first instance, by emailing [email protected] and a list of volunteers will be compiled. Once we have some volunteers, we will then post the list on the PCT website and notify all volunteers that the list is about to be publicised on the Members’ Area.

I am a final stage student on the DPsych Counselling Psychology programme at Glasgow Caledonian University, and I am conducting a research project as part of the fulfilment of this doctoral programme. The focus of my study is therapist self-disclosure of sexual orientation and involves understanding the experiences and decision making of therapists who choose to disclose.

I am looking for participants who identify as LGBT and have experienced a disclosure of their sexual orientation with a client in therapy. I would be very grateful if you would be willing to take part in my study. Participants will be required to attend a meeting in Glasgow with the researcher to discuss their experiences. If you are interested, please contact me at the address below. If you do so, you will have the chance to find out more about the study before coming to any decision. You would be under no obligation to take part.

My study is supervised by Tasim Martin-Berg (C.Psychol. AFBPsS. HCPC Reg. Deputy Programme Leader & Lecturer) who can be contacted on [email protected] The use of email to recruit participants for this study has been approved by the GCU Health & Life Sciences Ethics Committee.

Yours sincerely,
