Dr Gill Heath

Gill qualified as a Clinical Psychologist from University College London (UCL) in 2004 and as a Schema Therapist from the New York Institute of Schema Therapy in 2010. She has worked as a therapist, supervisor and team leader in services for adults with psychological problems including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, relationship problems and personality disorders. Gill also offers training and supervision in Schema Therapy (see Training) and serves on the ISST Training and Certification committee.

Specialist areas

Her experience means she is able to help with a range of more general life problems (for example anxiety, relationship issues, low mood/depression and self-image) as well as more specialist areas (Borderline Personality Disorder, anorexia, bulimia, body image problems, comfort eating). Gill is also trained in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy & Mindfulness. Mindfulness is a powerful tool for clients who want to feel more engaged and connected with their experiences but find they are overwhelmed by day-to-day stresses and worries. Mindfulness can be combined with Schema Therapy, providing a liberating way of relating to yourself with compassion and acceptance. Gill also uses a range of techniques and strategies from Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) to help clients who want to focus their efforts on changing a specific emotional problem or unwanted behaviour, often within a relatively short space of time.

Location

Gill’s practice is near Mile End Tube (2 stops on the Central Line from Liverpool Street).
