Jill Gather, PhD
In my work, I frequently meet people who seek out counselling in the hope of gaining a deeper understanding of themselves and of those close to them. They long for a more fulfilling life while continuing to repeat patterns and behaviours they know do not serve them. Anxiety and depression may make it difficult to move forward in life or physical symptoms demand too much attention and energy.
The counselling setting provides a safe environment in which you can talk about any concerns that preoccupy or weigh on you. As we enquire into challenges, fears, hopes and wishes, we pay attention to the different levels of your experience (be they physical, emotional, mental or spiritual) so as to arrive at a better sense of how old mindsets and patterns might be released. Together, we listen to your inner world with compassion so as to invite a sense of greater ease and spaciousness.
Training, qualifications & experience
My counselling training focused on the Psychosynthesis approach, and I currently work as a counsellor as well as craniosacral therapist. In its emphasis on exploring and supporting the ways in which each of us can live our potential more fully, I have found Psychosynthesis to be a truly holistic approach that addresses all dimensions of our being, from the physical to the spiritual. I welcome any enquiry you may have.
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Chronic fatigue syndrome/ME
- Eating disorders

- Learning difficulties

I operate a sliding scale and my rate varies between £30 and £40 for a one-hour session, depending on a person's financial means.
