Gail is a qualified integrative counsellor, and a member of BACP. She draws upon a person-centred and psychodynamic approach that facilitates the safe and trusted exploration of past conflicts and struggles that may still be affecting a client’s present world; enabling them to process difficult emotions or issues for improved self-awareness and acceptance. She believes with the right empathetic support, everyone has the potential to become unstuck and move forward positively in life to reach their full potential.
Gail has previously worked within the NHS, supporting adults experiencing mental health difficulties. Her experience includes working with depression, anxiety, sexual abuse, bereavement, low self-esteem, self-identity, cultural issues, postnatal depression and relational issues. She is also committed to on-going study to continuously expand her skillset.
Gail previously worked within the event-marketing industry, running her own agency that created and implemented many national awareness campaigns for charities and the NHS. Throughout her professional career, her focus has always been to combine management skills to support and mentor others.
She has held varying roles within The Awareness Centre throughout her original training, from placement therapist through to administrator and Clinical Team Leader, enabling her to draw upon a rounded experience to now manage the agency’s NHS Services across all areas.
