Hello, I'm Gail. A very warm welcome to my profile. I am a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) providing online, telephone and face to face counselling sessions.
I offer a warm friendly space for you to speak openly about the difficulties that may be keeping you feeling stuck. Whether it is anxiety, depression, stress, relationship difficulties or maybe you are struggling with the impact of trauma, abuse or bereavement. I am here to listen and help you unravel the issues that are getting in the way of you living the live you desire.
CBT can help you make sense of your experiences and allow you to consider the changes you would like to make. With your goals in mind, we will create a pathway together. Working at your pace I will introduce you to CBT techniques and encourage you to practice new skills and strategies between sessions.
I understand reaching out may feel daunting. I offer a free 20 minute informal phone call to help you decide if counselling is what you are looking for. Please feel free to email or message me to arrange a time that suits you.

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.
