SPECIALIST IN DEPRESSION (chronic long term or recent episode) • PANIC DISORDER • STRESS MANAGEMENT • SOCIAL PHOBIA • LOW SELF ESTEEM • GENERALISED ANXIETY DISORDER • OCD • MANAGEMENT OF SELF HARM THOUGHTS and ACTS

To put quite simply, I feel that all individuals experience different levels of adversity and emotional pain at various moments in life. The extent to which we cope with this depends on factors ranging from our early experiences of nurturing, family and friendship groups, financial and social deprivation to our daily acts of self care and our values.

When we come up against problems such as crippling self doubt, self attacking thoughts, hopelessness, suicidal thoughts, panic and obsessional worrying, it is important that we should receive safe, effective and supportive help. I believe that offering people the opportunity to tell their story from wherever feels right, to understand their problems in detail and to decide the various directions to take is a form of self care.

The majority of my professional experience has been withthe NHS as a psychologist working in the field of primary care mental health, hospital outpatients and Public Health for the last 10 years. This has involved developing and running self-management groups for managing common mental health difficulties and also helping GPs to identify early signs of depression in order to manage their symptoms sooner. My current role is within a Personality Disorders Team, working with young people aged 18-25. It involves working in a team with Psychiatrists, Social Workers, Nurses and other therapists to help with suicidal thoughts and urges as well as planning how treatment will look.
I continue to work for the NHS in the main because I feel that this reflects the realities of life and the systems which continue to challenge us all.

Andrea Gavin - Therapist

SPECIALIST IN WORKPLACE STRESS • ANXIETY • PANIC ATTACKS • DEPRESSION • SELF ESTEEM AND CONFIDENCE ISSUES • BEREAVEMENT AND LOSS • FAMILY AND RELATIONSHIP ISSUES • ABUSE • ANGER MANAGEMENT • WORK/LIFE BALANCE

Welcome to my profile,

I am passionate about ensuring therapy is accessible, flexible and tailored to each persons individual needs. I have a love of culture and languages having been raised cross culturally in England and Portugal and my interest in psychology started when I was a translator for Street Projects based in Brazil. I completed my professional training in Integrative Psychotherapy in 2008 and chose this form of therapy as it adopts the view that as human beings we are naturally geared towards self-regulation (balance/wholeness) when the right conditions are in place.

I have predominately worked in the NHS, Well-being services and higher education supporting people who have experienced low mood, depression, worry, anxiety, panic as well as supporting people through relationship challenges such as domestic violence, affairs or divorce. Similarly, I work with grief , work related difficulties and other life transitions such as pregnancy, childbirth or other life changing events. Prior clients tell me I am compassionate, honest, culturally sensitive and down-to-earth in my approach.

In addition, I have managed therapeutic teams and services supporting trainee counsellors and therapists working towards accreditation.

I am currently completing my training in Counselling for Depression which is an innovative development in counselling and psychotherapy and focuses on emotional issues underlying depression as well as internal processes such as low self esteem.

Areas I have experience and interest in are:
- emotional and psychological well-being
- personal development
- sadness, sense of feeling stuck, lack of motivation and drive to include clinical
- physical health, isolation and anxiety

Do feel free to message me to explore availability as I have flexibility for daytime, evening and weekend sessions (UK timezone).
