Hi! I am Gillian. I am a psychotherapist and founder of The Therapy Space Chelmsford.
I have worked for 12 years supporting people with emotional difficulties to gain control back over their lives. I have experience in a variety of NHS and private therapy settings offering group, one to one therapy and supervision to staff.
I am an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist completing high quality training at the Institute of Psychiatry in London.
I completed a master’s degree in counselling psychology prior to my training in CBT. I am now training in EMDR and will be able to offer this cutting-edge treatment for trauma and emotional disorders at my practice. I am proud that I can offer such a bespoke service to my clients.
At the core of my work is an emphasis on the therapy relationship. I believe having a sound, trusting therapeutic relationship is key for progress and change in therapy. Having this value at the core of my therapy work has served my clients well for many years.
I am also passionate about spreading the message in person and via different platforms that mental health must be seen as equal to our physical health and not an afterthought! So be sure to follow me on the social media links to help reduce the stigma surrounding mental health and to get your free wellbeing tips and strategies!
I am aware just how engulfed we can become in all the roles we need to fulfil in our everyday lives. So much so that we often neglect ourselves in the process and our mental health can suffer. I have been there! I believe that our mental health is something we should take care of and maintain regularly. At The Therapy Space Chelmsford I am dedicated to helping you to maintain your mental health and lead a fulfilled life.
