Counselling for a change was set up in 2001  
Gill Fennings-Monkman MBE

As a Professional Coach and Therapist, I combine a variety of positive psychological approaches to create a way of helping my clients tackle their difficulties on their own terms.  I utilise a range of the best evidence based tools and techniques, and 18 years of clinical experience, to enable you or your organisation along your journey. 

I have worked with 1000's of clients to successfully achieve their goals over the past 18 years.  I believe that our mind is not our enemy, it is our best tool and that even the most difficult situations, experiences and challenges in work or life, can be managed or overcome. Coaching and therapy simply accelerate and embed that change faster and for good.   


I utilise a Humanistic Integrative approach to enable change which may include:
  • CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy)
  • EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprogramming)
  • Mindfulness
  • NLP (Neuro Linguistic Psychotherapy)
  • Time lining
  • EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) 
  • Parts Integration
  • Solution focused therapy
  • Gestalt
  • Hypnotherapy
  • TA (Transactional analysis)
  • Existential psychology
