Gail Wright - Life in Harmony Counselling (DipHE Couns.) MBACP
Hello, my name is Gail and I work from my home in Peterborough. I am an Autism specialist counsellor working with teenagers and adults as well as those who live through the daily struggles with someone close who is on the spectrum but are neuro-typical. I also specialise in the areas of anxiety, trauma and relationship issues.
Sometimes in our lives stress and anxiety become overwhelming. Things from our past catch up, or stresses of day to day work, school, home and family take over. This is where counselling can help. Those intense feelings of anxiety take over your day to day life, stopping us from living the life we want, unable to socialise, work or go shopping. It may be that your relationships are breaking down around you and as a couple or family you don't know how to move forward. With this comes stress, anxiety, anger or frustration and communication with others becomes strained. Coming to see a counsellor helps you to understand where these feelings have come from and how to manage them. Through couples counselling you can re-discover each other and start to communicate again in a safe place where no blame is laid.
Working from a person centred base I integrate other theories to enable me to tailor the sessions to your needs. I work with you and help you explore how past experiences and relationships are affecting you today or help you look at today's problems. Working together we can find you a way forward to help you feel you again. So if it is the past or present that is affecting you please give me a call to have a no obligation, confidential chat to see how I may help.
