J. Gail Williams MBACP: Post.Grad Dip.Couns,, Dip.Counselling Supervision
Lytham St. Annes
With 18 years experience in the counselling field, and as a qualified counselling supervisor, I am able to assist with most issues which may be worrying you. I work in the Fylde Coast area, and in certain circumstances I can visit your home and work there with you if necessary.
What can counselling do for you?
Counselling is a very personal experience which can unlock feelings and sensations from the past allowing them to be understood, which is not always too comfortable, but helps with coming to terms with them and it also can put clarity into situations which may be happening in the here and now.
Many people do not know why they are feeling or behaving the way they do and counselling helps them to understand and allows them to deal with the results of past or present situations. I normally check after each session how my client is feeling and most say that, although they are a bit tired and drained, they feel as though a weight has been removed from their shoulders and they feel lighter.
I believe in working in which ever way suits the person I am working with - as we are all different, we all need a different approach. I can offer reduced rates in some circumstances.
- If you give me a call on 07530 175111we will be able to chat about what it is that you feel you need help.
- We can then make an appointment to meet up for an introductory, no obligation session within a couple of weeks should you wish to go ahead.
- I generally work late afternoon or evenings and Saturday mornings but can be a little flexible to suit your needs.
- In certain circumstances I can visit your home and work there with you if necessary.
The Therapy centre I work from has ample car parking in the street but also a small area off street and is wheelchair friendly with ground floor rooms available for the less mobile of us. It sits on a main bus route and is therefore easily accessible for most people.

I do not hold anyone to a specific number of sessions although I do have a basic contract which is standard in all counselling. My experience tells me that the person undertaking counselling knows when they are ready to stop but I do review our journey on a regular basis to assist with moving forward when the time is right.
