Gina Phillips - MBACP (Accred), Adv Dip, PG Cert
I am a qualified and accredited Integrative Counsellor registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) practising in Central and South West London.
As an integrative counsellor, my approach incorporates humanistic, person-centred, psychodynamic and cognitive behaviour (CBT) modalities, which are tailored to a client's individual needs.
I believe that the most important aspect of counselling is a strong therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client. I aim to provide a warm, safe, supportive, non-judgemental space, which allows you to challenge established ways of thinking and being. Working collaboratively I aim to help you evaluate your needs to gain a deeper understanding of yourself, enabling you to make empowered choices.
From my previous experience in the world of media and the creative industries I understand the pressures on the individual in the workplace and home, and the impact it can have. This informs my practice which includes working with a wide variety of mental health difficulties including anxiety, depression, self-esteem, addiction, relationship and workplace issues and bereavement.
If you are thinking about counselling but are nervous or unsure about the process, I am happy to offer a free introductory session subject to availability. When contacting me please let me know if you are interested in sessions at Regent Street or Clapham or if both are a possibility.
