Stephanie Gilbert Counselling


With 20 years experience of working with children aged 10-18yrs, young people & adults struggling with many aspects of their lives, including their mental health, I decided to retrain as a counsellor.  Going into private practice allowed me to offer the opportunity and flexibility to support clients on their terms, without time limited restriction.

I have significant experience of working with several organisations and charities including... 

A charity who accepted referrals from GP's. My clients experienced a range of difficulties, from anxiety and depression to childhood trauma, relationship difficulties, abuse and stress in parenting. 

I have worked for my local branch of Mind, supporting a free bereavement and loss counselling service.  

I have also worked for a local autism charity, offering counselling to both autistic individuals and parents of autistic children/adults.


I have completed research into the social and emotional impact of parenting an autistic child without intellectual or physical disability.

This has further increased my awareness of how lives can be impacted, how counselling can help and how counselling practice can be adapted to be fully inclusive to all.
