My name is Gunilla
Counsellor, Dip. H.I.C., MBACP

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor who has worked with individuals, couples and groups for well over 15 years. I now run my Private Practice mainly for couples but am open to see individual clients with relationship problems.

Couples counselling offers a safe and supportive environment to give the couple an important opportunity for both partners to be heard and understood. With a compassionate, non-judgemental therapist present, partners are helped to communicate again by discussing issues or problems that had previously felt too difficult or unsafe. This enables them to find creative and mutually beneficial solutions.

Relationships are complex and I think, L.H. Gordon, Founder of Pairs, best describes this. ''We need to know not only about love and affection and sensuality and sex and passion, but also how to deal with anger and pain and jealousy and fear and excitement and joy.

How we deal with differences in a way that build rather than destroy.

We need to understand our own history, our past hurts, the scars we bear and grudges we hold from far back that still influences us today,

We need to look t how our parents have influenced us in various ways, some better than others.

We need to listen to each other.''

With couples who have already decided to go their separate ways, couples counselling can support them to make this happen in the best possible way in these difficult circumstances.

I have experience working with both opposite sex and same sex couples over many years.

Everything shared during couples counselling is completely confidential.

I have developed and run some very special one and two-day relationship courses. They are held in a calm, confidential and supportive environment. This gives the participants the knowledge, understanding and awareness which can have profound and long-lasting effect on their relationships, as borne out by feedback from many participants.

I now only offer face to face counselling.

I see my clients and run courses in St Chloe, Amberley near Stroud.
