Gabrielle Brown BA(Hons),,PGDipCouns, PGDipSupervision,MBACP(Accred)
I am an Integrative/Psychodynamic counsellor, accredited with BACP, with over 20 years of experience working in private practice, the NHS and other organisations.
Life can feel difficult at times and problems can appear overwhelming, and it can be useful to talk to an independent professional in a safe, non-judgmental space, where issues can be explored together in a collaborative process over a period of time.We all have unique experiences and, with my approach, I draw on a variety of therapeutic models and adapt to best meet the needs of my clients. I have a warm and empathic style and hope that this enables people to feel at ease.
My background is in music and I have a particular interest in the Performing Arts and Education and workplace issues.
My private practice is based in Forest Hill SE23,on the borders of East Dulwich, near to the Horniman Museum, and is close to public transport. Buses stop nearby and the nearest Rail station is Forest Hill, about five minutes' walk away.
