Gill Thilthorpe Dip.Coun (MBACP)
At some point in our lives we may experience emotions and situations that are hard to make sense of. We may experience many different feelings which may include feeling confused,alone,depressed, anxious,angry and frustrated. Counselling provides a space for people to talk and explore their thoughts and feelings and can empower them to lead more fulfilling lives. Integrative counselling means that I have been trained in more than one theory. By using differerent techniques from these approaches enables me to adapt my method to suit my clients needs.
I believe people to be their own "Expert" and I work with a holistic approach. By working together with you will identify solutions and strategies to help you make changes in your life. My role as a Counsellor is not to give advice but to listen and help my clients gain insight into their thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
I have an accepting attitude and I am genuine and open towards my clients,placing great emphasis on the theraputic relationship, as this in my experience leads to the most successful outcomes. I provide a safe, warm, non-judgemental environment for my clients to be able to talk in strictest confidence about any issues or problems they may have. I have well over three years experience working in primary care (NHS) with men, women and young adults presenting with various issues and problems. Some of which are depression, anxiety, anger management, bereavement, guilt,fears and phobias,relationship issues and clients comtemplating bariatric surgery. I have recently become qualified in (CFD) Counselling for depression and am working in the NHS.
If you are not sure if I would be the right counsellor for you I would answer that question by saying I will be happy to speak to you on the phone to discuss how counselling could benefit you and there is no obligation..I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and I adhere to their Ethical Framework for good practice.
