About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I am Gillian. I am a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor, I offer counselling and psychotherapy both via telephone and face to face, working from private practices in Crawshawbooth, Rossendale and Barrowford, Nelson in Lancashire.

I have 16 years experience working in the field of mental health and emotional support and wellbeing supporting adults and young adults. I have worked with individuals with a range of mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, bereavement and loss, stress, relationship issues, Bi-polar disorder, Asperger's syndrome, sexual abuse, BPD (Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder) and suicidal thoughts.

At times life events may feel overwhelming and it often helps to talk to someone for support who is not emotionally attached to you. My aim is to help clients explore their issues and any areas of their lives they may find difficult in therapy, in a safe, supportive environment. I am passionate about supporting people in a calm, confidential space to feel heard and understood. I offer core conditions of empathy, congruence and without judgment to create change. I want to help you feel more fulfilled in life.

Currently there is a lot of anxiety that has triggered by all the restrictions and adjustments we have had to make, lack of contact with our family and friends, worries about our health and finances and uncertainty about our futures, loss of loved ones and of our freedom. As a result many people are experiencing loneliness right now, counselling and supporting your emotional well-being and exploring this with someone impartial can help with this.
