Gail Knowles MBACP, FdSc, Dip.Hyp-Psych, GQHP.
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.

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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
