Gillian Jacobson Integrative Psychotherapist MBACP (Accred)
Hello and a warm welcome to my website.
"I am not what happened to me, I am what
I choose to become." (Carl Jung)
The path to a happy and fulfilled life starts by finding a therapist you can trust and embark on a healing journey with.
Have you been struggling with something for a while,
or finding it difficult to move past a significant event in your life?
Are you feeling in despair and wondering how you will get through it?
Do you feel stuck in old habits but want to move forward?
Each of us carries our own baggage and personal struggles.
So many of us continue to struggle in silence,
perhaps due to stigma, shame or fear.
However, you do not have to carry on alone anymore.
If you have had counselling in the past or are seeking therapy
for the first time, you have come to the right place.
I believe that we are all capable of making
necessary changes in our lives to
create the life we desire.
However, we start life vulnerable
and without any control over our
early formative experiences.
We have no choice over the genes
we are born with,
the families we are raised in,
nor the impact this has
on our psychological development.
In other words, we become a product
of our environment and genes,
which determine how
we relate to others and function in the world.

Diploma Gut-Brain Connection (Distinction)
Integrative Psychotherapy can help you get in touch with and process difficult thoughts, uncomfortable feelings and unresolved issues.
I will support and guide you through difficult situations, uncertainty and personal struggles. I always work with sensitivity to your needs, to find what is the best way for you to overcome issues that have been troubling you.
As an Integrative Psychotherapist I use a variety of therapeutic techniques to help you.
I offer Online and Face-to-Face Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Person-Centred Therapy & Attachment Therapy, Gut-Brain Connection and Mindful Nutrition
I can help you gain insight and understanding of a problem(s), such as: depression, eating disorders, anxiety, childhood trauma, abuse, low self esteem, bereavement, loss, rejection, anger, identity issues, existential fears, relationship issues, addictions, problematic drinking, gambling, and other unhelpful coping habits.
Incorporating mindful nutrition and looking at the gut-brain connection can be particularly useful in alleviating and getting over mental health difficulties such as depression, anxiety, addictions and eating disorders.
Understanding and working with the gut-brain connection can also support you with the mental health impacts of childhood trauma.
Counselling can help you manage and work through these difficulties, and find a way forward.
As an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy my work adheres to the ethical standards as can be found here
