About me

Hello, I am Gillian. 

Sometimes it can feel very hard to see a way forward to living with less anxiety or depression, or understanding why we feel stuck, or blocked, or unable to make changes or feel better.

I will provide a safe and confidential space in which we can think together about ingrained mental obstacles and how they are affecting you.

Psychodynamic work helps us to understand how our past experiences and unconscious processes are alive and present in how we are currently feeling and experiencing ourselves and our actions, impulses and relationships.

Working in this way together brings insight into unravelling the strands of root causes, and brings space for increased understanding of the self, self-esteem, kindness to the self and resilience to step forward into life.

Every client is a unique individual and I will listen with empathy and curiosity as we think together and work towards understanding and insight.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

After an initial phone conversation, which is free of charge, we can arrange to commence sessions. These will take place face-to-face on a weekly basis. This is usually for one year, although shorter-term work may be discussed in the initial phone call and take place by mutual agreement. The sessions will take place in the same time slot every week and will last for 50 minutes.
