About me

Finding a counsellor that you can trust and feel comfortable with is important.

I am a highly experienced counsellor and my aim is to create a positive, trusting and empathic environment in which I help you to help yourself.

I provide a safe, and caring professional counselling and psychotherapy service. I am an empathic and approachable person working in a non-judgemental, and confidential way.

I offer one-to-one sessions with adults and adolescents. I work both short term and long term dependant on your individual needs and wishes, which we can discuss in your initial session. This initial session is free and gives you time to explore if counselling is right for you.

By exploring your past, the causes of present day problems are often revealed. We can't change the past, but we can gain understanding allowing you to relate differently to yourself, others and problems in order to choose to make changes or find acceptance.

I work confidentially and ethically, abiding by the BACP code of ethics.

If you would like to make an appointment or have any queries, please contact me on 07740121990 or by email gaynor@ufirst.org.uk for further information.

I love my job and will do all I can to help you.

Member organisations


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.
