Counselling is a very effective form of ‘talking therapy’ that can help with a wide variety of issues. Counselling offers help to people going through a period of emotional or psychological distress and confusion which is hindering their normal capacity to manage their lives more effectively. It is a well established and clinically proven form of psychological help that can help to address the following issues:-
- Eating Disorders
- Employment worries
- Managing Change
- Mental Health
- Panic Attacks
- Personal Development
- Self Harm
- Terminal Illness
- Self Esteem
- Suicidal feelings
Counselling is an opportunity for you to talk to a professional therapist to help you understand yourself and your situation. This might involve reflecting on your life experiences and your responses to new ones. The counsellor will also help you to identify what changes in life style could reduce any distress you feel, and to support you as you consider how to do this.
Depending on what you are able to share, the counsellor works with you to explore how you can progress towards living in a way that is more satisfactory and resourceful for you. Although the counselling offered is primarily non-directive and non-advisory, in some situations you may want more positive guidance from specific information and advice. The counsellor will suggest how this might be obtained.
Counselling takes place in a private setting so that you can feel free to share your concerns in confidence. In the initial session, you will be able to talk to the counsellor to clarify the areas that you want to cover together. The counsellor will suggest the number of times you might need to meet to achieve your objectives. Each session is 55 minutes, normally at the same time each week. Depending on how things work out, you may wish to take short breaks in the process to work on issues that have emerged for you, returning later when you are ready to do more work.

Gail has postgraduate qualifications in Relationship therapy, family counselling, psychosexual therapy and clinical supervision.

She trained with the University of Hull and Relate where she continues to counsel and supervise their practitioners and she also works in private practice. She is a Registered Member of the BACP and delivers training nationally for counsellors and therapists.
Gail works with integrative and relational models. Her work with clients is structured around their needs rather than fitting them into a predetermined model of counselling thereby supporting and enabling her clients to make the changes they want. Periods of challenge can be opportunities for change. Knowing how and what to do to effect that change can sometimes need the support of a counsellor who understands relationships and family dynamics. Couple and family counselling supports you in building better and more fulfilling relationships with your partner, separated co-parent or other family members.
