Joanna Russell | Senior Accredited Counsellor | Glasgow | NCPS

Joanna Russell

Member Status: Senior Accredited

Member No: NCS18-06287

Location: Glasgow

I began my working career as a teacher in secondary education. I moved to the voluntary sector, still involved with training, but also pastoral care and some overseas development work.

I have experience with clients bringing a variety of difficulties: depression, anxiety, loss and bereavement, post-traumatic stress, cultural stress and transition, relationship struggles, sexuality, sexual abuse and other forms of childhood abuse.

I have particular interest in working with clients of diverse sexualities, relational styles and gender identities.

I also have a particular interest in spirituality; however I work with clients of all faiths and none.

I am a Senior Accredited and Registered Member of the NCPS and I work to their code of ethics and standards.

  • Qualifications & Experience
    I qualified as a counsellor in 2003, and then completed an MSc in Counselling Studies (Advanced Practice) at Edinburgh University in 2009; this included training in Supervision.
    I have also completed a 2-year specialist diploma of training with Pink Therapy in gender and sexual and relational diversity therapy and I am an Accredited Advanced Sexual Diversity Therapist (Pink Therapy).
