Gina Langley - HCPC Registered Counselling Psychologist
Welcome! I am an HCPC Registered Counselling Psychologist and have been working as a therapist since 1995. I offer a range of ways to help you through a difficult time, tackle a chronic problem or help you realise your potential. I feel that counselling/psychotherapy shouldn't be intimidating but should help you explore and cope with the issues in your life.
I have extensive experience of working with depression, anxiety, relationships and associated issues including loss, anger, and pain amongst others. I increasingly use Mindfulness in my sessions and run a full 8 week course at various points in the year. I have recently been training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), a logical extension of CBT particularly focussed on helping you find out what you would like from a rich and fulfilling life - a harder question than it sounds!
I am a BUPA registered mental health therapist and I am also recognised by AXA PPP, Aviva, BUPA, Cigna, PruHealth and WPA.
My Hawkhurst practice is in a purpose built office at my home, with street parking.
Please see my website for more information about how I work.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
