Gillian graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work in 2012, after which she went to work in a number of different services ranging from community social work and development, adoption services and children’s residential care. She has worked in Kenya, India and with different cultural communities in Malta, after which she went on to graduate with a Master’s in Counseling so as to support people therapeutically.

Gillian takes special consideration in providing the necessary safety for clients, where together they can work to understand themselves and their relationships better as she supports them in their recovery from any hardships or traumatic experiences. She is passionate about helping people to process their emotions, recognise their strengths and reach their potential for a more content and fulfilling life. She believes everyone can benefit from a therapeutic space to work on their personal growth, self-awareness, self-compassion and coping skills.

She has experience working with overeating/obesity, gender-based violence, mental health difficulties such as anxiety, depression, trauma, learning difficulties and relationship difficulties. She particularly enjoys working with teens and adults on their self-esteem, self-growth and improved well-being. Personally, she enjoys expressing her thoughts and emotions through writing and dance.
