About me

My name is Lianne Gilmour and I have been practising as a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor since 2016. My working style is Integrative and Relational, whereby I draw on many theories and techniques, whilst holding our working relationship at the fore. Our work will be a collaboration and I will check in with you to make sure the therapy and I, am meeting your therapeutic needs. I am down to earth, practically minded and passionate about doing the work with you!

I bring my own varied life experience, along with the skills I have learned in my formal training to my work. This enables me to be with you in your healing journey in a compassionate, empathic and ethical way.

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed a Level 4 Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling in 2018 and have 6 years of clinical experience with a wide range of client presentations.

I continue to volunteer as a Counsellor at an agency working with complex issues around addiction since 2016.

In 2022 I completed a BSc in Counselling Research and Contemporary CBT, gaining a 2:1.

I have undertaken CPD training around Addiction, Shame, Grief and Diversity. I am passionate about working in a trauma-informed way. This means that we will work with your self-regulation in the room, to contain any overwhelm, keep you in control and stay safe with your story. It also means that I will use aspects of Psychoeducation and Neuroscience for both of us to understand what’s coming up for you.

I am a member of the BACP and work to their Ethical Framework. Please feel welcome to ask me any questions you have about the above.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
