Master of Counselling (current); Clinical Hypnotherapist (Diploma 2019 & member of the Australian Society of Hypnotherapy (ASH); Critical Care Registered Nurse and Phd. in Theology.
Gillian works as a Critical Care Nurse and has been studying counselling to enhance her skills. As an ICU nurse over the past 15 years she has gained experience in supporting both relatives and patient’s coming to terms with illness, loss and trauma. Clinical Hypnotherapy has been useful in her work-setting in helping patients with anxiety issues, phobias (e.g., needle phobias) and pain management. It is also known to be a highly effective adjunct when used in conjunction with other therapeutic approaches, such as, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy etc. She has successfully used Hypnotherapy in the treatment of anxiety, smoking cessation and acrophobia (her case studies were recommended for publication by the examining board of ASH). Her approach to counselling is client-centred and integrative and as such, counselling interventions will be respectfully tailored to each individual’s unique situation.
