Gilly Fairbairn MBACP
There may be unresolved traumas in your life, painful feelings in relation to loss and bereavement or possibly some important decisions that need to be made which are causing you distress and confusion. Maybe you feel stuck with a lack of direction and focus or find yourself repeating unhelpful patterns of behaviour.
I work integratively offering a safe space to explore issues, find solutions and make appropriate changes. Being heard and understood without judgement is the most important aspect of my work. My core belief is that our past informs our present which shapes our future.
Together we can explore all aspects of your life in a holistic way in order to empower you make the choices and decisions you feel are appropriate for you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a professional, qualified and experienced counsellor based in Surrey and I hold a distinction in a post graduate diploma in Integrative counselling from Greenwich University. I have had a career in the substance misuse and mental health field for more than 30 years. This has afforded me many years experience working with the consequences of trauma, the intricacies of relationships and the negative outcomes of self defeating behaviour and thoughts. Addiction is just one symptom. Unhelpful coping strategies are multiple including self harm, eating disorders and obsessive behaviours.
I have extensive experience of working with family members who are impacted as a result of their loved ones struggles.
