Gill Bicknell - Psychodynamic Counsellor MBACP registered B.A.(hons)
I am a psychodynamic counsellor based in Chelmsford town centre, a few minutes walk from the train station.
Seeing a counsellor is never an easy thing to decide to do, no matter what your reasons for deciding to begin. Whether it be for your own personal issues, bereavement or simply a need to talk to someone to put oneself in a better frame of mind to tackle tomorrow. Modern life is full of challenges that at times are too difficult to be tackled alone or in silence.
Through counselling I offer a confidential and safe space for you to speak openly and freely without fear, judgement or hesitation. Together with compassion, respect and through a mutual working relationship we will aim to understand how things are for you now and how to move forward into a brighter and more positive future.
Everyone who enters into counselling does so for their own deeply personal reasons. Although it can be scary and daunting together we can create an experience that not only increases your own self awareness, but can also help to bring you to the understanding that you need to build a stronger you. In our first session we will discuss what has bought you to counselling and what your hopes are moving forward.
