June Rattray BSc (Hons) Psychology

My career in counselling began with an interest in human behaviour and the desire to help people make positive changes to their lives.  This led to my psychology and counselling studies and in 2004 I began counselling individuals and couples.  This work has continued to date along with my strong belief in the importance of human relationships. My enthusiasm in the counselling process carried on throughout the 6 years I lectured in Counselling and Psychology at HNC and NC levels.  During this time I gained an understanding of many counselling disciplines, along with increasing and challenging my own knowledge and skills. 

In 2009 I began working with children & young people. This work was immensely rewarding and broadened my belief in the importance of human relationships at all stages of life. Around this time Mindfulness became part of my life and I enjoy working in this way with clients and groups.  Most recently I was part of the Employee Counselling Service team, where I worked for 8 years.  During this time I achieved BACP accreditation and also became an experienced clinical supervisor, group worker and part of the management team.  I gained further skills in working with critical incident situations and post traumatic stress and I aim to continue providing these services as part of Counselling & Coaching Solutions.
