Counselling Psychologist

Dr Gail Freedman is a Chartered Counselling Psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and registered to practice with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC: PYL38107). Gail has extensive experience working with a wide range of mental health difficulties. She is passionate about improving the mental health of individuals and helping them get to where they desire to be and feel.

Gail believes that one size does not fit all. She takes an integrative approach to therapy, drawing upon various models of therapy founded in a Humanistic Rogerian Philosophical approach where the therapeutic alliance forms a place of safety for change to occur. Dr Freedman can offer therapy modalities such as CBT, Person-centred, Systemic, Narrative approach and Psychodynamic.

Having many years of experience working in various settings means Gail is skilled in working in one-to-one, individual therapy, as well as group settings and MDTs. She works with a range of presenting difficulties for people across the lifespan, both in-person and online.
Fundamental to her identity as a Counselling Psychologist, following the scientist-practitioner model, is for Gail to develop individual formulations to understand a person’s difficulties and inform therapeutic practice in an evidence-based fashion.

In addition to working with various mood and anxiety issues, Gail can offer particular expertise for people on the spectrum, having worked in Autism support and diagnosis (for under 18 years of age).

Dr Gail Freedman is currently furthering her professional development and working towards accreditation as an Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Practitioner and is a member of the EMDR Academy UK.
