About me and my therapy practice

Welcome to West Lancashire Counselling. My name is Gwen Govan and I have been a counsellor since 1994 and senior accredited since 2009. I offer both counselling which tends to be more focused and psychotherapy which is longer term and more rooted in the past.

I would describe myself as a psychodynamic therapist and am particularly interested in your past experiences especially those shaped in childhood. It is often possible to discern a particular pattern in the way each of us manages our different relationships. 

Counselling will hopefully be stimulating, challenging and freeing. It is however essentially about change and recognising that changes can sometimes be painful and unsettling and require patience and practice.

Therapy appointments are available at a variety of times, during the week, some midweek evenings and Saturday mornings. I charge £40 for a 60 minute session. To check whether this might be for you I offer a half price taster session on your first appointment. Please phone on 01704 892922 to check current availability.
