Gillian Silver MBACP
Hello, I’m Gillian - welcome to my profile.
Are you struggling with life or feeling overwhelmed and unable to move forward? You may be experiencing loss through bereavement, illness, job loss or broken relationships. You might be finding it difficult to cope with anxiety, low mood, sadness or feelings of isolation or hopelessness. Perhaps there is no-one in your life who you can talk to about your situation.
In my counselling practice I offer you a space and time where you can focus on yourself and your life and feel deeply heard. As a Person Centred counsellor my approach is one of warmth, acceptance and non-judgement in which we can work together at your own pace to explore and work through whatever is troubling you and find a way forward.
Some of the issues I can help with include: anxiety, bereavement, carer stress, depression, disordered eating, generalised anxiety disorder, family issues, loss, low self-confidence, panic disorder, relationship problems, self esteem, self-harm, sexuality / sexual identity, stress, suicidal thoughts, work-related issues.
I work with adults for long or short term counselling depending on your individual needs.
The relationship between you and your counsellor is a very important part of counselling and it is vital that you have someone you feel comfortable with. So in our first session we would explore what you are wanting from counselling and whether you feel I am the right counsellor for you. Please phone or email me to arrange an initial exploratory session.
I look forward to hearing from you.
