About Candice Gaugain

Candice Gaugain, FD (Open)

My passion for becoming a counsellor began when I was in my mid-teens, however, I decided to take a different avenue in healing therapy and in 2003 I became a Certified Clinical Massage and Neuromuscular Therapist.  After years of practicing in this field, in 2011 I decided to embark on my journey to becoming a counsellor.  Now fully qualified as an Integrative Counsellor, specialising in the Psychodynamic and Person-Centered approaches, helping others to find mental clarity, reach their personal goals and full potential has been, and continues to be, the most rewarding experience in my professional career.

Supervision and Countinuous Professional Development

I meet with a qualified Supervising Counsellor once or twice a month for a minimum of 90 minutes each session.  This is to discuss my practice, my caseload, to check that I am working at my best to support my clients whilst keeping with ethical principals set out by the BACP and how best to deal with dilemmas that may come up throughout my client work.

I attend Continuous Professional Development (CPD) courses throughout the year to be sure that I stay up-to-date and competent in my profession.  Some CPD's I have attended are:

  • Introduction to the Counselling Chakras
  • The Chakra System in Counselling
  • Being Human - Prof Ernesto Spinelli (Gold Partnership)
  • An Evening with Susie Orbach (BACP)
