Gill Goodship, MBACP
Welcome, and thank you for pausing to read my profile.
Why Are you Reading this Profile?
Maybe you have some thoughts and feelings that are impacting on your daily life and you just can’t seem to leave them behind – like a loop of recurring thoughts?
Perhaps you feel isolated or anxious by your experiences. By talking through your concerns with an impartial counsellor you will be given some thinking space to work out what is best for you. I would like to help you understand why you feel the way you do and how to move towards being more at ease with yourself. I often work with clients where we explore past and present relationships and experiences – together we look at the effects of these relationships or situations in your life today. Discovering your sticking points and where triggers originated from for you, can help you to take the power out of these thoughts for where your life is now.
Sometimes you want someone to be there for you and I would like to offer my support to you, if that is what you need right now. Please contact me for a free 15 minute informal chat to establish what your concerns are. Please see bottom of page for fees and current availability.
What to Expect?
The rooms at Clarity Wellbeing Clinic are modern, discreet and comfortable. Parking is within a two minute walk. You will be provided with a comfortable, completely confidential space to explore and understand why your thoughts may be affecting your life. Perhaps you have feelings of disappointment, rage, injustice, longing, resentment or any number of other emotions. Together, we will talk through your concerns without fear of judgement, and allowing you to recalibrate* your approach to your own life. You may have been holding inside some of these thoughts for a long time.
I have experience of working with adult clients from a range of; ages, sexuality, backgrounds and cultures and have been privileged to share in the undulating emotions and experiences of their lives. We will metaphorically ‘walk and talk’ about where your life has taken you and why you feel as you do now.
If you are interested in discovering what it might be like to work with me as your therapist, please do get in touch on the number above or email; email@example.com. I aim to respond to your message as soon as possible and within 6 hours. We can arrange an initial session to find out whether the support I offer would be useful to you.
*Recalibrate – In therapeutic terms; finding a sense of balance between family, work and life and knowing when to focus on self-care, something like a mental health MOT.
