As a Person-centred Counsellor and a 'Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator, I'm very keen to offer members of PCT Scotland the opportunity to explore the Daring Way™ - a course of CPD workshops based around the methodology of Brené Brown.

The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we show up in our lives - both personally and professionally.

I plan to offer the workshops to the general public shortly, and there is a good chance that some participants may then wish to explore what comes up for them in greater depth with a helping professional. Although attendance at the workshop does not give participants the accreditation to deliver The Daring Way™, I would feel comfortable recommending counsellors who have at least been through the process and are therefore familiar with the language and concepts.

So, I am currently canvassing for interest. To make the workshops viable I would need between 6 and 10 participants. Further basic information is outlined below.

To register your interest, receive more information regarding the course and cost, and to ask any questions, please do contact me as soon as possible via:
[email protected]

I am optimistically considering two options:
8 x weekly evening sessions (2 hours on a Monday or Tuesday) between 28 August and 28 October.
4 x weekend sessions (4 hours each) on Saturdays between 14 August and 7th October)

LOCATION: TBC - aiming for central Glasgow or Westend

Hello there,
I’m currently undertaking Supervision training at Strathclyde University. Part of the criteria is to offer counselling to a qualified and practising counselling. So far, I’ve completed 8 of the 16 hours required. However, although my current supervisee is willing to continue, ideally, I would like to try and find a different counsellor for the next 8 hours to broaden my experience. This offer is free of charge but can’t be used as a replacement for the supervision you currently have in place. It could be a useful way to experience a different style of supervision or to try a new approach from the one you’re used to.
By way of giving a bit of background about me, I achieved the HNC in Integrative Counselling at Telford College in Edinburgh in 2011 and went on to study at Strathclyde University in 2012 completing the diploma in ‘Person Centred’ counselling in 2014. I have since become accredited with BACP in February of this year. I have a small private practice in Edinburgh and currently work as a counsellor for ‘Hear for You’ who are based in Lanark. I also gained a solid foundation in generic counselling at FDAMH in Falkirk from July 2013 to February 2017.
At the moment, I have flexibility over days, times and location so would be willing to consider any possibilities that might be presented.
If you are interested and want to find out more, then please feel free to get in touch at. My email is [email protected]

This group was established 20 years. The aim of the group is to provide a supportive and safe environment for individuals who have a professional or personal interest in developing insight into self and therapeutic skills for healing self and others. Current and past members have a high level of experience in this field but the basic requirement is that individuals should have experience of personal therapy and some understanding of the therapeutic process. Work can be at a deep level and is under the supervision of a professional facilitator where a safe and secure environment is provided within the group.

The group meets during the day for four weekends per year at the Tom Allan Centre in Glasgow. It meets the professional requirements for PPD hours of both COSCA AND BACP.
