Gillian Gill B.A. (Hons), PGDip. Counselling and Psychotherapy, Registered MBACP
I am a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor, working from private practices in Crawshawbooth, Rossendale and Barrowford, Nelson in Lancashire. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and have been appropriately trained to meet their rigorous professional standards. I receive monthly supervision which ensures my continued ethical practice within the BACP Ethical Framework.
I have 15 years experience working in the field of mental health and emotional support and wellbeing supporting adults and young adults. I have worked with individuals with a range of mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, bereavement and loss, stress, relationship issues, Bi-polar disorder, Asperger's syndrome, sexual abuse, BPD (Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder) and suicidal thoughts.
At times life events may feel overwhelming and it often helps to talk to someone for support who is not emotionally attached to you. My aim is to help clients explore their issues and any areas of their lives they may find difficult in therapy, in a safe, supportive and confidential environment. I offer core conditions of empathy, congruence and without judgment. I am fully insured and subscribe to the DBS update service.
