Gail Wilkinson PGDip MBACP
Whatever is impacting your life right now, I'd like to help. Online therapy is immediately available with me via Zoom, Skype and WhatsApp.
Are you experiencing stress? Feeling Anxious, Sad or Depressed? Are you worried about being at home for a long period of time? Are you concerned about the future, or something that has happened in the past? Are you finding that you are unable to articulate exactly what is going on, and are feeling overwhelmed or misunderstood? Perhaps you’d like to have better relationships, and feel less isolated or alone?
Probably the most important thing is that you find someone who you are comfortable with and can trust. Clients have been relieved to be met by humanness, warmth and deep empathy. Clients also say i'm easy to talk to, and that helps put them at ease. Working with me is completely confidential. Working online offers a safe environment to navigate our way through your difficult thoughts, feelings and experiences. You will be able to express yourself in the way you wish to.
I am experienced in several schools of Psychotherapy trained in Psychosynthesis (Integrative Therapist), at the Psychosynthesis Trust, London. I am a professional member of the British Association for Counselling & Psycotherapy (MBACP).
I think it helps to have a telephone chat prior to making your first appointment. I offer you a free 15 Minute telephone consultation, so please do contact me and let me know how I can help. I reply quickest to emails and text messages, so message me and we can set a convenient time for a call.

I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Professional Development Psychosynthesis Counselling (PGDip), trained at Psychosynthesis Trust London. My qualification is accredited by Middlesex University.

I have experience helping adults from a wide range of backgrounds, supporting a vast range of issues and difficulties. My practice is LGBTQ+ friendly. Whatever your concern, I can probably help.
Whether you are experiencing anxiety, anger, addiction, depression, lack of meaning and direction, Identity issues: genders and sexualities, low self-esteem, sex related issues, trauma, grief, loss, relationship difficulties, work or career related issues, whatever your difficulty, trust that there is a different way.

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
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Weekly 50 Minute Sessions Available From £75
First steps: It can feel daunting to make the first contact. The first session will be an opportunity for us to meet, and get to know one another. It will be an opportunity for you to ask questions you may have about me, or the counselling process and to discuss your issues, if you're ready.
By the end of the session, you may have an idea if you'd like to continue, if so we can discuss next steps. You may also wish to take some time to decide.
If whatever is bothering you, is affecting the quality of your life, talking therapy could be a step towards helping to understand what is going on for you and why.
