About Me

Kathleen Currie ~ MBACP/ MCOSCA/ DipCouns

My name is Kathleen Currie and I am a qualified, registered Counsellor and a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and Counselling and Psychotherapy in Scotland (COSCA). I work to both the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions and COSCA’s Statement of Ethics and Code of Practice. I hold professional indemnity insurance.

Having graduated with a Diploma in Counselling in 2003, I am an experienced Counselling practitioner who has a wide range of experience.  I also currently work as a Lecturer in a further education college teaching Trainee student counsellors.

I believe my own life and work experiences have influenced my interest in counselling and psychology. I believe that sometimes we all need someone to listen in a way that is caring, understanding and non-judgemental. I feel I have these qualities and I care about helping others.

I am offering an individual, person-centred counselling service for anyone feeling overwhelmed and in need of support to overcome any personal issues, challenges or frustrations. Committing to counselling is a big step and I feel privileged to be a part of your journey to help you, help yourself.

I also offer online counselling using the Zoom video conferencing app.
It is easily accessible.
