1 Favell Road
I'm Gill Wenlock and I am pleased that you have taken time to look through this information. Perhaps you are looking for information on counselling, or seeking support for a particular problem.
I run a Counselling practice in Lincoln, Lincolnshire where I am committed to provide counselling in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment at several convenient locations.
GW Counselling Services provide a variety of training/workshop for the caring professional within an organisational setting, particularly for those working with young people
The idea of “having counselling" may seem odd or even scary, but everyone has had some type of counselling at some time in their lives. They might have chatted about problems over a cup of tea with friends or family, sought advice from a religious mentor or spoken to the family doctor. For some people, the next step is to talk to a professional counsellor. This may be because your problems are very complicated, or because you want confidential, impartial support. Sometimes it is easier to talk to a professional counsellor because the space and time for talking has been set aside just for you.
I have worked with Adults and young people for over 20 years, supporting them through many different challenges. Now, as a qualified counsellor, I can offer a safe, confidential therapeutic counselling service to support you through difficult times. Counselling is about helping you to understand your feelings so that you can make decisions that are right for you. You can get help to develop the skills, which allow you to cope better with life. Counselling is about having time to talk things through in a relaxed way. Counselling is definitely not about telling you what to do, judging you for things you may have said or done, or making you feel uncomfortable.
Counselling for Adults, Adolescents and Children
I will support you as you explore what is upsetting you, identify the choices available to you to make changes, resolve a difficulty or come to term with the past experience.
Sensitive and confidential help is required for a wide range of adolescent issues including: trauma and abuse, substance abuse, domestic violence, family problems, and problems with weight.
Depression, Stress and Anxiety
Depression is a potentially serious condition that can take all of the joy out of daily life. Anxiety can be a symptom of depression but can also exist in its own right it can appear and interrupt daily lives in the form of apprehension, lack of confidence, panic attacks and some phobias. The symptoms of stress are – disturbed sleep, irritability, tiredness, headaches and low moods.
Bereavement, Loss and Redundancies
Few of us go through life without experiencing a loss important in our lives. It can trigger strong emotions that we may not have experienced before. With a loss we experience many different effects, which could include shock, disbelief, numbness longing, apathy, sadness, anger and depression before reaching hope and acceptance.
Trauma, Abuse and Phobias
Unwanted Abuse in any form can have a deeply disturbing effect on emotional happiness whether experienced in childhood or later in life. Traumatic events can cause depression, nightmares, panic attacks and self-harm
Food Addiction and Eating Disorders
Both of these disorders can seriously damage you health. Eating Disorder patterns can stem from emotional turmoil, a need to forget feelings, a need to block out pain and anger and most of all , a need to cope.
Self-Injury is the act of inflicting physical harm serious enough to cause damage to your body. This self-injury is often repetitive and people who do it learn that hurting themselves in this way brings a form of relief from distress.
Drug, Solvent and Alcohol Abuse
An addiction, whether to drug, solvent or alcohol, can be a frightening, confusing and humiliating experience for both the suffer and their families.
Victims of domestic violence are at the receiving end of those who use abuse, coercion, threats and physical violence as weapons in their pursuits of power and control.
Anger Management and Self-Esteem
The first step towards managing anger is an understanding of its roots. As a Counsellor I can assist in alleviating conflict and help those experiencing it to understand their emotions and responses. How they cam manage their own anger and learn coping mechanisms necessary to recognise and manage their feelings. Being capable of being in charge of their own responses can result in increased self-esteem, which, in turn, will enable and equip them with the confidence necessary to become effective communicators.
Problems with Relationships
Relationships are characterized by clear ‘boundaries' or ‘rules of interaction' There are multiple issues that affect relationships, from death and bereavement, caring for the elderly and those with illness, to violence and dealing teenage problems.
Code of Ethics
I abide by the ethics and standards laid down by
