The Aarlon Practice Gayle Sturrock
Thank You for reading my page.
I have been working as a counsellor, psychotherapist and coach for over 27 years and have see my work as a vocation as well as a career as I love working with people.
I am is specialised in:
- Issues around Anxiety, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Depression, Panic Disorder, Relationship Issues and Trauma are a large part of my work. Please call to discuss a way forward. Anxiety and Panic can be solved through a number of ways that suit you. The focus on the work we do is around you and how you think and feel. You should feel that therapy is safe and contained space where you can be in control.
- New Parents and Family Issues including Birth Trauma and Post Natal Depression. Having a new baby is challenging in many ways. There are many things that are not spoken about that are important to work through for many people.
- Trauma related issues such as PTSD, effects of Childhood and Relational Trauma on Adults and Children, Road Traffic Accidents, Domestic Violence Trauma, Divorce and Traumas such as Emotional Abuse and Bullying. I provide EMDR Consultancy, Trauma Psychotherapy and Counselling.
- Loss and Bereavement Issues such as loosing a loved one, miscarriage, death of a child, illness, redundancy, cancer and medical issues, terminal conditions etc.
I see therapy as a team effort and a place where you can connect with yourself and be you. We are not given an instruction manual of how our nervous system, thoughts and emotions work together. I will help you understand the symptoms you have in the context of your life and make sense of it all. We can explore what you are looking for and come up with structure and a plan to help you.
- I can use psychotherapeutic techniques to help Clients with PTSD and trauma related symptoms such as EMDR, Re-Wind Technique and EFT and Somatic Experiencing Work.
- EMDR can be used in several areas such as Depression, Anxiety, Phobias, Post Natal Depression, Birth Trauma, ME, CFS, and Relational Trauma such as childhood neglect, emotional and mental abuse. EMDR is useful for working with self esteem issues such as stuck negative beliefs about oneself.
- I also work with artists and artists in training the area of performing arts.
- I am a clinical supervisor for counsellors, psychotherapists, health professionals.
- With Many Thanks, Gayle
"I was so anxious and did not know what to do. Gayle helped me understand what was going on. I learnt how to deal with it one step at a time. It was common sense. I got my life back"
"Gayle helped me connect with myself and my problems. She gave me knowledge, skills and resources to work through things that were painful and holding me back. EMDR stopped me being on medication by working on past traumas, which were affecting every day"
"Gayle helped me understand my life and how I was stuck in a cycle of anxiety. I learnt empowering things that no one else had told me. We found a way through and how to help myself. Now am calm and happy. "
