About me

Face to face appointments are now available, ensuring all Covid 19 protections are in place.

I am an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist, accredited EMDR therapist, Internal Family Systems Therapist, Clinical Hypnotherapist and Leadership Performance Coach based in Berkshire. I specialise in providing psychological therapy to individuals using a range of psychotherapeutic approaches.

My passion is to help people overcome the problems in their lives that are stopping them from being who they truly want to be. Therapy is often a period of self discovery where you become aware of how negative beliefs are previously restricting your life, allowing you to relearn positive thought processes and discover inner resources.

I offer a confidential, professional and caring service. Please contact me to arrange an appointment. If you would like to discuss your needs or would like more information without any obligation, please do not hesitate to contact me on 07507933199 or email me at kam@kgillartherapy.co.uk

Training, qualifications & experience

My training has involved a number of different approaches to therapy including a Masters Degree in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, a Post Graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling and Clinical Hypnotherapy. I have also trained in Compassion Focussed Therapy, Internal Family Systems and business management coaching. I am fully trained in using EMDR.

I am accredited with the BABCP (http://www.babcp.com) and the National Council of Hypnotherapists (http://www.hypnotherapists.org.uk).

I am approved by the following insurers: AXA-PPP, Simply Health, WPA, Nuffield Health.

When I work

Our psychological health during this crisis has never been so important and together we can work through this using remote online therapy.

Further information

I believe it is important in establishing a trusting and compassionate relationship in which you feel heard and valued. I aim to help you explore and understand your situation and to enable you to consider different perspectives and options open to you.

I am aware that psychological counselling is an investment and you want to be sure that it is going to help you achieve what you want to achieve. I can provide short, medium or long term therapy depending on your needs.

I work to the highest ethical and professional standards and I keep up to date with the latest developments in psychological therapies.

The approach I use will depend upon your difficulties, your strengths and your preferences. I will suggest a way for us to work together and we will review how this approach is working for you as the therapy progresses.
