About me and my therapy practice
My name's Gabby and I am a humanistic counsellor. To me this means each of us need to be seen as individuals and within the context of our own environment. How we experience things on a personal level is what is important in our work together. Therefore my goal is to see the world through your eyes.
Having previously worked in very pressurised and fast paced environments, I have been able to hugely benefit from talking with counsellors and as part of my own training have experienced many years of talking therapies.
I know on a personal level how hard it is to pluck up the courage and contact someone to speak about your struggles, and the pain and confusion that life can bring. That's why I believe that you must feel comfortable, safe and in a trusted environment when talking about your problems. Therefore I always recommend an initial appointment to see how you feel when we're together and with the way I work. Then we can discuss how we may move forward together and if this feels right for you. I aim to provide an environment where we can meet each other as two human beings, and talk openly and honestly about our work together.
Awareness of what we are experiencing and what our individual needs are can help with changes, as well as understanding how we have the ability, freedom and choice to make those changes. Through conversation and meaningful interactions we can work collaboratively to explore different ways of coping, begin to make life happier and to encourage growth.
I have experience in supporting people with relationship struggles, trauma, anxiety and phobias, depression, shame, chronic illness/pain, eating disorders, bereavement, neglect, abuse, and life changes such as divorce, unemployment, diagnoses and having children.
