Welcome...

December 12, 2016

Welcome to my first Blog! I hope that it will give you some insight into who I am and what counselling means to me. My name is Gillian I live with my family in London after recently relocating from the South Wales area. A huge step for us which has brought with it many challenges and experiences which have helped us to grow as individuals and a family. 

 

Firstly I would like to say a little about myself and how I moved from a varied career path into Counselling. Over the last 20 years I have worked in a variety of jobs including pub management, travel, retail and Investment and banking. Although I enjoyed these jobs at different times I always felt there was something missing and continued to jump from job to job in search of the “missing” piece! On reaching a point in each role I always felt the need to move on to something new. This almost always brought about a dissimilar role to the previous and a feeling of enthusiasm which, unfortunately seemed to waver after time.

 

I came across counselling in my late twenties during a difficult period in my life. I have to say that I wasn’t looking forward to counselling and didn’t really understand what counselling was at the time but attended nonetheless. I was overwhelmed by the insights I obtained in such a short period of time, the huge impact it had on my life and the positive changes I went on to make as a result of counselling. From this moment on I realised that this is what I wanted to do, finally I had found a career that I felt certain I would continue throughout my life.

 

My experience with counselling led to significant changes both personally and professionally. It has led to a career and what will inevitably be a life’s work. I cannot imagine doing anything else, it is an honour and a privilege to play a part in the stories of my clients and to watch as stories of strength and perseverance unfold before me. I cannot think of a more rewarding career than counselling which is designed to decrease suffering, empower and improve the quality of life. There is nothing I would rather do with my life, I consider myself very lucky indeed.
