Gaylia Mitchell Adv/Dip Psychotherapeutic Counselling MNCS & MNHS Accredited
Hello, and a warm welcome.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my profile page.
I am a qualified and experienced Intergrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist which means I am able to use various styles of counselling to suit the individuals needs of the client and to help resolve their issues.
I offer a safe comfortable confidential, non-judgemental, environment where you will be able to express and share your emotions and feelings with me realising that you are not alone.
I specialise in treating Anxiety and Depression and have gained a lot of experience working with adults in the NHS in this field. Amongst other issues I address are: Panic Attacks, Low Self-Esteem, Bereavement, Relationship issues,Separation and Divorce, Couples Counselling, Trauma, Sexuality, Abuse, and Anger Managment.
As an experienced Counsellor and having worked in Mental Health for many years, I run both my practices with the highest level of competency, abiding by ethical guidelines. I am committed to professional continuing development to enhance my knowledge, to help, encourage and guide you to make sense of your life.
I work with clients in short and long terms counselling depending on what you decide.
My role is not to give advice, but to listen to your concerns, and fears. My aim is to be supportive and offer encouragement so that we can work together. Most people go through times in their lives that are painful and distressing and have nowhere to turn to or make a painful decision. Past memories may present anxiety or stress which may be difficult for you to move forward for the future. Coming to talk about your issue is the first step forward.
I have helped many people over the years to improve their lives, understanding as indviduals we are all unique and respond to life events in different ways.
Should you wish to contact me for an initial assessment session, I am happy to arrange this. This does not commit you in any way, but gives you the opportunity to meet me and talk over any questions you may have.
I offer an affordable fee of £45.00 for up to 60 minutes. I also offer some concessionary places.
I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society and recognised by the Royal College of Nursing. I work within their ethical framework. I have full professional indemnity insurance.
