Gill Davies MBACP
Life can throw challenging situations in your path which you may find overwhelming. Or perhaps you find yourself repeating patterns of behaviour which you would like to change. Through counselling, you can make time to explore thoughts and feelings that are too difficult to deal in the course of your routine, day-to-day life.
The relationship between you and the counsellor is central to the counselling process; working closely in a respectful, trusting relationship with a qualified counsellor can help to change the way you think or behave. I will not give advice, but will use my skills to help you focus on the issues that are important to you.
Counselling can help in many ways. Giving expression to thoughts and feelings related issues you are struggling to cope with may:
- offer up a greater self-awareness
- increase confidence in your own decision-making
- improve the way you relate to people around you
- solve a current problem
- deal with life’s particularly challenging events such as bereavement
- resolve an issue from your earlier life
- consider all options available to you.
Based in central Winchester, I am a qualified, BACP-registered, counsellor. I offer a calm, safe, confidential space where we can work together to explore issues that you are finding difficult.
I work with young (18 years old) and older adults, helping them to cope with a range of issues such as stress, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship problems and bereavement.
As well as my counselling role, I am employed by a local college to assess the skills of trainee counsellors.

What happens next?
We shall arrange a time and day to meet and then meet regularly (once a week is most beneficial to the therapeutic work) at the same time and day. Occasionally, more flexible planning may be required.
How long will the counselling session last?
Each session lasts 50 minutes.
How long will the entire counselling process last?
The answer to that varies; it depends on what you want to achieve during the therapy. We will review our work together at regular intervals.
What is Transactional Analysis?
Transactional Analysis looks at the ways we interact with each other and how we see ourselves and others in the world. When we consider the associated thoughts, feelings and behaviour related to our interactions, we may well gain a better understanding of current problems or hurdles which prevent us moving forward.
Where exactly is your counselling room?
When we agree on a date and time to meet, I shall provide further details so that arrive on time. Please note that there is no waiting room so it is advisable to arrive minutes before your appointment. Parking space is very limited, although there are car parks nearby.
