UKCP Registered Integrative Psychotherapist

About Me

 

Please note that, for the time being, I am not seeking new referrals.

 

A warm welcome to my website. I am a Senior Accredited BACP Psychotherapist/Counsellor and Supervisor and a UKCP registered Psychotherapist. I have been in practice since 2000.

I currently run my own private practice working with a wide range of clients, both short-term and longer-term who self-refer or who are referred by local practitioners, employee assistance providers and also by existing clients.

My consulting room is in Cheltenham, within easy reach of Swindon, Cirencester, Gloucester, Bath, Bristol and Oxford. Please click here to view my contact information.

Whether your difficulties are to do with relationship issues, anxiety or depression, loss or bereavement, loneliness, anger management or lack of meaning in life, I believe that together we can make a real difference.

My experience as a NHS Staff Counsellor and in private practice with employee assistance providers, has given me in-depth understanding of work-place pressures.

“I know that it is possible to effect significant change in a relatively short period of time”

– Janette Gale | 2017

As a qualified therapist, my aim is to:

Explore with you your concerns

Talk about your thoughts and feelings

Help you towards living a more fulfilling life

Provide a confidential and supportive environment

Therapy Services

I provide brief and longer-term counselling and psychotherapy to individuals over eighteen years of age and to couples.

My way of working is to enable clients to approach their difficulties on a number of levels – emotional, cognitive, behavioural, developmental and intergenerational.

I practice primarily from a psychodynamic base, but also make use of techniques from other psychotherapeutic modalities.

Supervision Services

As a BACP Accredited Supervisor of Individuals and Groups, I provide Supervision to qualified and trainee counsellors; psychotherapists and health practitioners in other disciplines.

If you are a therapist looking for supervision, please contact me for more information.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect?

An initial exploratory meeting will help you to decide whether sessions may be helpful. It allows us to think together and discuss what you are looking for from therapy and whether we both feel we can work together.

I would encourage you to share any concerns or reservations you may have and to ask questions should you need clarification. If you feel another form of counselling might be more appropriate, I will support you in exploring alternative options and resources available.

How many sessions will I have?

I am happy to work with clients on a short or longer-term basis, depending on whatever feels best for you. When agreeing the possible time-frame to work together, we will consider the issues you want to deal with, the outcome you are aiming for and the pace you feel comfortable working at.

We will review our work together at regular intervals to ensure that you are getting what you need from our sessions and your feedback is welcomed both during and at the end of therapy.

What are your fees?

My standard charge is £45.00 per 50-minute session for individuals and £55 for couples.

Fees are subject to mutual agreement and I am willing to negotiate a lower fee in certain circumstances.

When are appointments available?

Sessions are normally held weekly on the same day and at the same time. You can book an appointment on weekdays, during the day or early evening.

I am usually able to offer an initial exploratory appointment promptly. Please contact me to find out when I have availability.
