Gillian Jacobson MSc Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist
I am an Integrative Psychotherapist (MSc), with a BA in Sociology and Psychology, and a Certificate in Culture and Heritage.
What can I help you with?
Life transitions, such as, moving and living abroad can be particularly challenging and rife with uncertainty. Coupled with lack or limited social support can lead to stress, anxiety and depression, which can cause unhelpful coping behaviours: Excessive drinking; Overeating; Gambling and Internet overuse. These unhelpful behaviours then exacerbate pre-existing mental health issues: Addictions; Eating disorders; Anxiety; Panic; Obsessive Compulsive Disorder; Depression; Low Self Esteem; Identity and Relationship difficulties.
How can I help you?
I integrate 3 therapeutic approaches: 1. Person-Centred Therapy helps you to feel heard, understood and accepted. 2. Attachment Therapy helps you understand yourself better. 3. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy looks at how you can deal your issues. Integrating these approaches will help you find a way forward. I offer face-to-face as well as online counselling.
What happens in the first session?
Our first session together will involve an initial assessment, so that I can get a better understanding of the presenting problem. This also gives you the opportunity to get a sense of me and how I work, and decide if you would like to work with me and the therapeutic process offered.
How many sessions would you need?
Short term counselling is generally between 6 and 12 sessions, whereas long term counselling can last up to 20 sessions and more.
