Gill Kelly Dip. Couns. Registered MBACP
At times in our life, we may struggle with our thoughts and feelings and it can be difficult to know which way to turn for help. Reaching out to a therapist is the first step, although this can be daunting with the right help there comes the opportunity for growth and improved well-being. I feel strongly that many of us do not live our lives authentically and are being true to ourselves, instead, we adapt to society, family and friends in order to feel accepted and to fit in. Through exploration, reflection and understanding we can free ourselves to truly live our life authentically.
I offer a professional and confidential counselling/psychotherapy service where together we can look at the difficulties you are experiencing in a safe and non-judgemental space.
What type of therapy
I am an integrative counsellor having trained in many modalities of counselling; however, my core training is Person Centred Theory. I incorporate Psychodynamic Theory, Transactional Analysis and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy into the work we may do together so that your individual therapy suits your individual needs and simply put allows me to draw upon a number of theories to help me gain a better understanding of you, in the past and in the present. This enables you to make sense of past choices and your relationships, helping you to move forward in your life.
I am able to see clients at my beautiful peaceful private practise in Kings Langley which has easy parking.
At our first meeting, we will discuss what has brought you to counselling and what you are hoping to achieve from working together. I can also answer any questions you may have and if you decide we are a good fit and would like to enter into counselling with me we can then arrange a suitable time to meet each week.
I offer short-term and long-term therapy and sessions are for 50 minutes each week. Time slots are flexible according to your needs.

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.
