Hi, my name is Gillian Boggs and I am an Integrative Counsellor and a registered member of the BACP.
We can all face times in our lives that leave us feeling overwhelmed and unable to cope. The fact is, we are stronger and more able than we think, we just need to give ourselves some time and space to work through and understand what is going on in our lives.
Counselling can provide that safe and confidential space where you are heard, valued and accepted.
As an integrative counsellor, I use a variety of models and techniques, depending on your individual needs, to enable us to work through whatever you are currently struggling with.
I offer one to one sessions with young people and adults.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Foundation Degree In Integrative Counselling and have had experience in working in a GP setting, Charitable Organisations as well as private practice.
During my counselling career I have dealt with a wide range of issues including: -
- Anxiety (including Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, OCD, Social Anxiety, Age related anxiety)
- Abuse (Emotional, Physical and Sexual)
- Suicidal Thoughts
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
