Chartered Clinical Psychologist and Family/ Systemic Therapist and Couple Therapist

Gillian has worked in the health service for over twenty years. She is both a Clinical Psychologist and Family/ Couple Therapist. Gillian has held Consultant Posts as a Clinical Psychologist and as a Consultant Family Therapist. Gillian has been a trainer for the Tavistock Clinic in London and she has also been an Academic Tutor on the Oxford Clinical Psychology Training course. Gillian has worked clinically with adolescents and their families and also with adults.

In her family and couple work, Gillian tends to focus on problematic patterns that are distressing in the here and now. The work helps to explore these patterns and find new ways of thinking and relating. Part of this involves helping clients to develop an awareness of the many strengths and resources that exist within the relationship which can often get forgotten in difficult times. Gillian also offers work to families when there is a need to explore and make sense of a member of the family’s mental health difficulties.
