Gary Hibbins Integrative Counsellor (MBACP) - Counselling- CBT- Mindfulness
Are you feeling:
Anxious, stressed, sad or confused?
What’s holding you back from living the life that you want for yourself?
There are many reasons why you may be seeking counselling at this time. I can support you with:
- Looking at ways you can manage your anxiety and stress...
- Feeling stuck or just want change in your life...
- Fed up with over worrying about everything...
- Help you develop a deeper self-awareness...
- Making sense of hard decisions or choices that may be looming...
- Giving space for your longing, wants and needs...
- Identifying patterns, thoughts and behaviours that hold you back or prevent you living your life fully...
Am I right the right Therapist For You? How do you decide who to see?
Firstly I understand there are an overwhelming number of different therapy options. Trying to find the right therapist can feel stressful and overwhelming. For many people this will be the first time they have really looked at the potential of sharing how they really feel with another individual. Scary right? Ultimately the relationship you develop with your counsellor is the most important aspect of threapy.
If you choose to meet with me, you will find that I relate to you very much as an individual. Even though you won’t be alone in the reason(s) you have for seeking a counsellor, you are unique! I do not adopt a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to therapy for this reason.
If we feel that you would be better seeing someone else, then I can refer you to another local therapist who I feel would be a good match.
My aim is to work collaboratively with you, to help you better understand the current/past issues of concern and their impact upon your happiness and relationships. I will provide emotional support and give you freedom to align you with your authentic self.
I am happy if you wanted to call me and have a discussion about how I work and how I might be able to support you.
I also offer Counselling & Wellbeing support for young people, aged 13-18.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). My professional training was at the world renowned Minster centre which is a leading Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling training institute based in Queens Park, London.
I receive professional supervision on all aspects of my practice. In addition, I am an active member of Oxfordshire Therapy and Self-Development Centres (OTS). I also have an Enhanced DBS check (Disclosure & Barring Service).
What is Integrative Counselling?
Integrative Counselling is less of a technique and more of a philosophy or approach. The English Oxford Dictionary defines Integrative as being: “Combining two or more things to form an effective unit or system.” Integrative Counsellors, therefore, have a holistic view of the person, seeing them as comprised of many parts that form their system. So my interest, as a counsellor, is in all the different aspects of your ‘self’: your feelings, thoughts, physical body and that indefinable part of ourselves we refer to as soul or spirit. I am also interested in how all those different aspects of your 'self' interact with the other people in your life, both past and present.
Integrative Counselling could, therefore, be described as an exploration, a journey, around your ‘self’.
