About me

Hello, my name is Gillian and I'm a counsellor at Serenity Counselling. I provide a private place where you can explore your feelings safely. I am here to listen and help you work through difficult times in a supportive and non-judgemental way. While reasons for coming to counselling are unique to each person, we will work together to build a trusting therapeutic relationship so you can safely look at any issues that are causing distress. This will help you move towards more fulfilment in your life.

I practice in a discreet but welcoming space in the centre of Tarleton village which is easily accessible from Preston, Southport and Ormskirk directions. There is plenty of free car parking nearby and good bus links.

Please follow the link to my website for more information or to use the online booking system.
