About Gill Goodship mbacp
Counsellor & Psychotherapist
Welcome, and thank you for pausing to read my profile.
My name is Gill and I guess the reason why you are reading this is because something is not right for you at the moment? Maybe you have some thoughts and feelings that are impacting on your daily life and you just can’t seem to leave them behind? – something like a loop of recurring thoughts?
When something’s not right talking to an impartial counsellor may be of benefit by allowing you time and space to work out what is best for you. I would like to help you understand why you feel the way you do and how to move towards being more at ease with yourself. I often work long term with clients where we explore past and present relationships and experiences – looking at sticking points for you, discovering where triggers originated for you and helping you to take the power out of these thoughts for where your life is right now.
You will be provided with a completely confidential space to explore and understand why your thoughts may be holding you back in the past. Together, we will talk through your concerns without fear of judgement, and allowing you to recalibrate* your approach to your own life.
I have experience of working with adult clients from a range of; ages, sexuality, backgrounds and cultures and have been privileged to share in the undulating emotions and experiences of their lives. We will metaphorically ‘walk and talk’ about where your life has taken you and why you feel as you do now.
If you are interested in discovering what it might be like to work with me as your therapist, please do get in touch on the number provided or email. We can arrange an initial session to find out whether the support I offer would be useful to you.
*Recalibrate – In therapeutic terms; finding a sense of balance between family, work and life and knowing when to focus on self-care is something that therapy can help you understand.
