My original introduction to the world of counselling began with training to become a FOCCUS Facilitator. FOCCUS (Facilitating Open Couple Communication Understanding and Study) is a programme for couples as they prepare for marriage. I currently hold a certificate and continue to work in this capacity.
My counselling qualifications include:
- COSCA Diploma in Counselling from Vital Connexions
- COSCA Certificate in Counselling Skills
- University of Glasgow Certificate in Counselling Skills
All of my counselling training courses are accredited by COSCA (the professional body for counselling and psychotherapy in Scotland).
I am a counsellor member of COSCA and adhere to their Code of Ethics as well as fulfilling their requirements of regular CPD and professional supervision.
I am a counsellor on COSCA’s Register that has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority. This is recognition of my commitment to high standards.
