About me and my therapy practice

Welcome to my profile. I am Gill and am a fully qualified, BACP registered counsellor.

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Maybe you're a carer/parent for children/ older relatives or both whilst also trying to work or carry out other duties in your life. Do you sometimes have feelings of guilt or not being good enough? Does everything you are doing seem too much sometimes? Have you lost sight of you? Taking time out for you to explore what's going on for you, to help unpick the feelings or just space to say whatever you want can bring some clarity and help you discover the real you.

I have first hand experience of juggling a career with caring responsibilities.I came to counselling from a background in corporate HR where I enjoyed mentoring and supporting staff. I combined this with raising a family, including a child with a disability and supporting an older relative with dementia. I have seen how workplace stress can impact staff at work and in their personal lives. I've experienced the challenges and joy of raising a child with additional needs. These experiences led me into counselling as I know how important it is to have a voice, to be heard and to be understood.

My counselling experience includes 4 years working with a low cost community counselling service where I supported clients with a range of issues. I currently work with a charity which supports families in which a child has been diagnosed with a complex medical condition.

Practice description

I am trained in the person-centred approach, I believe you are the expert in your life. I will not tell you what to do but I can offer you a space that is warm, safe and non-judgemental and we'll work together, at your pace, to explore what is going on for you. Clients have said that having that space to work through their current challenges, to say out loud what they are thinking without being judged, has allowed them to work out what they really want or need and how they can go back into their world with that voice.

My first session

The foundation of effective counselling is the relationship between the therapist and the client. If you would like to explore further, I offer a free 15 minute telephone or on-line session in which we can get to know each other better. This can allow us both to decide if I have the skills to meet your needs.
