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.
