Josiane Le Gall MBACP
I am a counsellor/psychotherapist. I have more than 10 years of experience working with individuals as well as couples.
I work in English, French and Spanish (not as fluent as English and French).
In addition, I work with various organisations such as a Refugee Centre.
I became a counsellor/psychotherapist in 2003.
I work in Psychosynthesis, a transpersonal model that gives me an in-depth understanding of who we are as human beings, and enables me to guide clients on their journeys.
My field of expertise includes: bereavement; problems of identity; relationship issues; health problems such as strokes and long-term illnesses; trauma; career changes and any personal issues.
I hold the Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling awarded by University of East London and I am fully BACP accredited.
Apart from Psychosynthesis as a core modality, I undertook the following additional training: Body Work at Chiron; The Hoffman Institute (including Body, Intellect, Emotions and Spirit); Biosynthesis (Somatic and depth-psychology); Mindfullness; Couple Therapy; Psychosynthesis Somatic Awareness and Trauma; Anxiety Disorders. I'm also currently researching the Conscious and Unconscious.
I work under the BACP Code of Ethics. I offer long term and short term therapy with flexible times - morning, afternoon or evening appointments, Monday to Friday.
I guide clients and help them understand and solve problems such as day-to-day difficulties or life crisis. I work towards bringing clarity, exploring thought patterns, positive and/or negative beliefs and support them in their search for the right actions and decisions.
My work methods include: talking; guided imagery; drawing; experiential techniques; using small stones; chair work.
