About me and my therapy practice

Whether you are dealing with anxiety, depression, loss or low self-esteem or whether you simply need someone to listen, I can offer a safe, welcoming space where we can think together about what might be troubling you. I am a qualified and experienced psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist. I offer a comfortable, non-judgemental space in my consulting room at home. I believe that being able to share our concerns with someone who is trained to listen can enable us to draw upon our own internal resources and can lead to transformation and growth.

I work psychodynamically, which means I can help you to think about how we connect with and relate to others. Such patterns are often laid down at a very young age and can continue throughout our lives and affect our relationships. Reflecting on our internal world can help us to understand how we might communicate unconsciously, as well as how scenarios from the past can seem to replay in the present.

I'm a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy and am registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council. I abide by both of their codes of ethics.

I did my Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy training at Wessex Counselling and Psychotherapy in Frome, Somerset, where I am also a training supervisor.

I have experience of doing pre- and post-bereavement work at a local hospice, being a private practitioner in a GP surgery, offering pastoral work in a secondary school, doing sessional agency work, carrying out clinical assessments at a local training organisation and supervision of trainee counsellors.

I have done a supervision training at Severn and Thames Psychotherapy Network in Bristol and am currently working towards accreditation with the British Association for Psychoanalytic and Psychodynamic Supervision.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a psychodynamic supervisor and completed my supervision training at Severn & Thames Psychotherapy Network in Bristol. I'm currently working towards accreditation with the British Association for Psychoanalytic and Psychodynamic Supervision.

I can offer supervision to trainees or qualified counsellors, either individually or in small groups.

Practice description

Supervision is an opportunity to be curious about our clinical work, often revealing different perspectives and fresh insights. Together we can think about unconscious communication and how themes from the client's story may be repeated in the counsellor/client and the supervisory relationship.

As a supervisor, I would also aim to support you in your clinical work and your development as a therapeutic practitioner. Please see my website for further details: www.gilliancmcpheecounselling.com
