Hello I’m Gill Nevitt. I am an accredited person-centred counsellor, play therapist and supervisor. I have over 16 years' experience working with children, young people, adults and families in schools, private practice and the voluntary sector.
I completed a Post-Graduate Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling in 2004 and later in 2013 obtained my Diploma in Play Therapy. In 2017 I completed training in Filial Therapy and in 2020 became a Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy-informed Practitioner. In 2019 I obtained a Certificate in Counselling and Psychotherapy Supervision Practise.
I undertake regular training and CPD, which recently has included TraumaPlaySM; a non-directive model of play therapy working specifically with traumatised children, attachment and neuroscience, sensory integration difficulties and trauma, mindfulness and breathwork for trauma recovery, polyvagal theory, relational trauma, working with shame and somatic experiencing.
I’ve worked with Relate, Women’s Aid, several Local Authorities and numerous secondary and primary schools in the North West, and in private practise. I supervise qualified and student therapists as well as welfare professionals. I am married with two children.
I have experience of working with a wide range of issues, including attachment and trauma, abuse, addiction, depression and anxiety, loss and separation.
I help my clients make the most of their lives. I offer a non-judgmental and respectful space where difficult thoughts, feelings and experiences can be explored. Therapy can help uncover patterns and causes of problems. I help my clients discover their own strengths and resources to heal and grow.
As an accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), I adhere to the Ethical Framework for Good Practise in Counselling and Psychotherapy, including supervision and yearly CPD requirements. I am committed to working with anti-oppressive and anti-discriminatory practice.
