The Gaia Centre
The approach we are adopting at The Gaia Centre…
Good health involves approaching wellness from many different angles. Optimal physical and mental health and ultimately spiritual growth can only truly be gained from a holistic (complete) approach. The areas you need to address during this adventure we call ‘Life’ are not limited to your body but also to your energy systems, your spirit, your mind (conscious and subconscious), and your emotions.
It is still often overlooked, but a holistic approach to health is absolutely essential to your physical health and well being. No matter how devoted you are to a proper diet and active lifestyle, you will not achieve your body’s ideal healing and preventative capability if you neglect other aspects such as mental spiritual and emotional healing.
On this page you will find details of the practitioners who operate out of the Gaia Centre, together with information about the treatments that they offer.
So if you are looking for a place that assists you to optimise your health, recuperate from illness or injury, explore different methods of relaxation, reduce your stress levels or simply to just generally improve your wellbeing please contact us to see how we can help.
Counselling and Psychotherapy
Keith Abbott – Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy
“Making more of tomorrow, today!”
Who we are
I am Keith Abbott, a person-centred counsellor / psychotherapist. I’m excited to be offering my services through the Gaia Centre.
What we do
I provide you with person-centred counselling and psychotherapy, an internationally recognized and scientifically evidence-based form of talking therapy in which I am qualified to Master’s degree level.
Person-centred counselling offers you the chance of experiencing realizations and improvements personal to you, through the experience of being listened to attentively, deeply understood, and highly valued as a person in a trusting and safe therapeutic relationship. I also also bring my own personal genuineness and experience to my clients, offering an empowering approach.
Who we help
I serve a wide variety of clients, and regard each person as equally important to us in their own right. I like meeting in person, though to all clients, we also offer video, telephone and “chat” based counselling. I help:
- Private individuals
- Business / corporate clients
- International students and workers
- UK students
What we help with
My approach is non-diagnostic – as I see it, I’m always working with a person not their troubles or an illness. For me, it is all about you. That said, I help people seeking personal growth and self-development as well as those with issues such as dealing with abuse, addictions (including sexual, alcohol, substances and gambling), anxiety, bereavement, trauma and PTSD, loneliness, depression, relationship troubles, sexuality, stress, transitioning, self-harm, suicide tendencies, finding meaning and purpose in life, motivation, facing big changes and culture shock to name just some.
What’s different about me?
As well as counselling, I haveconsiderable life experience, worked in industry, law, and university teaching. Not just a text book learner, I’ve suffered knocks, fought battles and possess hard-earned insights, making me better placed to empower you to make positive, meaningful choices and change your life for the better. Working to provide you with the support you need, at the time you need it most.
In short, I walk my talk and I’m very much here for you.
Qualifications and Experience
With a Masters degrees from Nottingham University in Person-Centred Experiential Counselling & Psychotherapy Practice (with distinction).
I have clear Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service checks which you’re welcome to inspect.
I’m a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).
