Bernadette Gilder (MSc Psych, PG Dip Counselling) - Integrative Counsellor

About me

Everyone is ok in my eyes and all are welcome.  Anxiety, stress, depression, feeling angry - these feelings can creep up on us or appear quite suddenly.  Grief can hit us straight away or months/years later.  Sometimes life just gets too hard and we can't cope, get short tempered, can't sleep, cry....

You may know why you feel the way you do - or not - but either way, talking with someone impartial can really help.   We each have our unique blend of stuff we are trying to deal with.  I believe strongly that mental health is no different to physical health in that systems can become unbalanced and give us problems.  Working with a Counsellor can help to rebalance your mind.

You may be unsure but I encourage you to make an appointment, meet me and then see how you feel.  It could be your first step toward feeling better and learning how to manage whatever you are going through.  I am happy to support you as long as you need me but it can be encouraging to know that significant improvement can happen in as few as 6 sessions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am friendly and broad-minded.  My style is Integrative which means I can assess individual needs and tailor my support accordingly - I have lots of skills we can choose from.  I am an Acupuncturist too and this can help with mood, pain and sleep.  I am also a chartered Physiotherapist which gives me a particular understanding of pain and its consequences.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
