Gerard Hannon BACP, BPS, Counsellor-Psychotherapist- Psychologist, & Life Coach
Integral LIFE Centre
44 High Street
Welcome. I am a highly experienced Counsellor/Psychotherapist and Psychologist, providing psychological assessments, and therapy for both individuals and couples therapy. I work with children, adolescents and adults on a broad range of issues, including, depression, rumination, anxiety, worry, grief/bereavement, relationship issues, and work-related stress. I provide a non-judgmental and safe therapeutic environment where people can feel at ease, talk openly and reflect on their experiences. I am experienced in a range of psychotherapeutic approaches such as Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Cognitive-Behavioural Therapies (CBT). I have a particular interest in mindfulness, guided imagery and inner child work which can enhance a person's ability to experience a deeper connection with themselves and others. In my experience, these valuable tools tend to lead to improved mental well-being and a more fulfilling life.
My research interests include exploring the function and conceptualisation of worry and rumination and exploring how individuals can become more in control of their thoughts and emotions. I have presented my research at the National Clinical Conference on, Worry, Loneliness and Coping Styles. I will also be presenting another paper at the National Counselling Psychology Conference 2017 on, The role of Worry and Rumination, and a paper on Repetitive Negative Thinking in Adolescents,
I am aware that experiencing psychological distress can be a very lonely place and a sense of trepidation about seeing a therapist is completely natural and understandable. However, rest assured there is nothing to fear.
