Gillian Powell MBACP (Accred) DipCAH
I qualified as a counsellor in 2007 and have since worked in the public sector. I have experience in helping clients with diverse difficulties ranging from bereavement, anxiety and depression, addictions, PTSD, OCD, lack of confidence and phobias. I also have experience in relationship counselling and working with children and young people.
I have been trained in the Person Centred Approach and CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy). I have been an Accredited Counsellor since 2012 and am a Licensed Practitioner for Citizen Anger Management.
I am also a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist and find it invaluable to integrate hypnotherapy as a tool to aid relaxation and treat addictions and phobias. Regression therapy can also be extremely useful for clients who struggle to resolve issues from their past.
I work from a private practice in the midst of the beautiful Tanat Valley with off road parking and easy access (one step). Due to the location it is necessary to drive/arrange to be driven. If you are very elderly or infirm it may be possible for me to see you at your own home.

I offer new clients a FREE 30 min introductory appointment so we can meet each other and determine if we can work well together. This also means the necessary paperwork can be completed with less inconvenience to you! After that it is your choice if you wish to continue.
My fees are £45 per hour (some hypnotherapy sessions may last longer than this). I can offer reduced fees to clients in receipt of state benefits. Please call me to discuss your circumstances.
