About Me

Kathleen Currie, Counsellor

Kathleen Currie ~ MBACP/ MCOSCA/ DipCouns

Hello and Welcome to my website.

My name is Kathleen and I am a professional, 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 a well experienced, professional Counselling practitioner who has a wide range of experience in offering counselling/talking therapy.  As well as being a Counsellor, I’m also a Lecturer in a further education college teaching counselling students.

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 genuine, understanding and non-judgemental. I have these qualities and I care about helping others. There is no shame in asking for help, if you are struggling and feel hopeless, you don’t have to feel alone – asking for help takes strength and courage.

I offer a one to one, private, person-centred counselling/therapy service for anyone in need of confidential support to overcome any relationship difficulties, personal, family or work related issues. Perhaps you’ve had a bereavement or have been feeling anxious, depressed or overwhelmed with challenges or frustrations in your life. Talking to a trained therapist can be therapeutic and improve your low mood, mental health and wellbeing.

Committing to counselling is a big step and may just change your life. I feel privileged to be a part of my client’s journey to help you, learn how to help yourself.

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