About me and my therapy practice

If you are suffering from generalised anxiety, stress or depression relating to work or relationships, then counselling is an opportunity for you to change your life. When we are struggling it’s good to talk.

My name is Gillie Farnworth PG Dip. Counselling MBACP. I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist and have been practicing in the Newport area for 10 years. Much of my experience has been gained whilst working closely with vulnerable adults within local support services. I have also consulted with multi-national companies with reference to stress management as required. I provide a professional and confidential counselling and psychotherapy service to adults, couples and people over the age of 16.

I work in an integrative style, which means I do not work with just one model but incorporate different counselling models to suit your needs. We are all unique, so consequently I approach every client afresh. My humanistic approach means that I believe that you are the expert in yourself and our work together is designed to help you to uncover your own answers and realise your full potential.

One of the most important aspects of therapy is the relationship between the client and the counsellor, for many reasons, not least because you need to feel comfortable opening up to another individual. When you are ready, please feel free to contact me either for an informal chat or to arrange an initial consultation. This is free of charge and there is no obligation to continue after this, but it will give us a chance to discuss what your needs are, whether you require short or long term therapy (I offer both) and how I might be able to help you.

I practice in the Risca area of Newport which is easily assessable just a short drive from junction 27 on the M4. There is plenty of parking available.
