About me

Hello, I’m Gail and I am a fully qualified and insured integrative counsellor and hypnopsychotherapist.

I have had my own practice for the last 5 years and also work within the NHS and private occupational health sector.

I offer integrative counselling. This allows me to help people using person centered therapy, cognitive behavior therapy and psycho-dynamic therapy.

I offer couples counselling. This allows both partners to have a safe and secure place to discuss any issues they feel are affecting their relationship.

I have trained in hypnopsychotherapy which allows me to use hypnosis to help to help relax people and then use psychotherapy to work with the issues a person may bring.

I am able to deal with a wide range of issues including stress management, loss, anxiety, depression, as well as many others.

I have completed training in infancy & pregnancy loss & I am able to help those who have suffered this loss. This support is open to other family members who are also struggling with the loss of young relative.

All support that I offer is private & confidential. All counselling or hypnotherapy takes place in a comfortable environment to help my clients work through the things they wish to address.

I also offer online video calls, email or instant message counselling. All online work is completed in the privacy of your own home in a place to suit you.

I have experience of working with people within the emergency services and am happy to offer a discount upon being shown ID.

Please note, if you send an enquiry through via email, my replies may go into your junk folder. Please check your junk folder for a response. If a phone number is provided, I will send a text to inform you that I have replied.

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.

Wheelchair user access

One location is on the ground floor but is not wheelchair accessable. One location does have a stair lift if needed. I offer online counselling so you can access support from the comfort of your own home.

Availability

Evening & weekends, depending on location.

Online & email counselling can be arranged for daytime sessions.
