Shingirirai Musunhe (Shingi) is offering person centred counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy. This focuses on allowing for an individual to discuss their feelings and behaviours, with models that allow for changes in thought pattern. 

Background

Shingi was born in Zimbabwe and moved to Edinburgh as a teenager. He lost both parents to AIDS related illness and decided to stay and build a life in Scotland. He attended the University of Aberdeen and studied Psychology as an undergraduate. He moved to Edinburgh in 2014 and worked with Streetworks providing support for the homeless. Shingi currently works as a counsellor for a charitable organisation and a private practice in Glasgow.

Shingi studied counselling in 2016, focusing on person centred methods and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).  He has also had experience receiving counselling which has helped him to understand the different feelings that can be associated with being a client and seeks to address these concerns early in the counsellor-client relationship.

Shingi has a personal interest in working with HIV counselling, which is rooted in his experience of growing up with parents who were HIV positive.  He experienced the mental anguish, stigma, shame, and breakdown of relationships often associated with living with HIV.  These experiences are what led him, in part, to study mental health and more recently to try and understand outside of his own experience.

He is registered with the BABCP, the main body that overseers CBT in the UK.  He has personal insurance cover with Holistic Services Insurance for client work.  He practices an integrative method, using a person-centred approach as the foundation for holding space and allowing the client to bring to the forefront the issues affecting them.
