Gislene has worked in public and private sectors, as well at the university counselling services. She works with a variety of presentations (including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, OCD, relationship difficulties and bereavement, amongst others) and also specialises in the treatment of eating disorders and their co-morbidities.

Gislene has experience of working with all approaches recommended by the NICE guidelines in the treatment of Eating Disorders (MANTRA (Maudsley Model of Anorexia Treatment for Adults), SSCM (Specialist Supportive Clinical Management), CBT-E (a type of CBT specific for Eating Disorders) and FDT (Focal Psychodynamic Therapy). These experiences enable her not only to deliver recommended first step treatments but also to tailor a piece of therapy to suit individual clients’ needs.

Feedback for Gislene

Therapy sessions with Gislene were helpful. Gislene is understanding and allowed me to work at my own pace, not putting unnecessary pressure on me
I have found treatment very difficult `{`and`}` have battled with my eating disorder to engage with the treatment process. I feel I have a better understanding of my anorexia and why I chose to run and hide in it. My therapy with Gislene has helped me to identify this and areas I need to work on. On the whole I feel Gislene was helpful, encouraging and understanding, she really listened to me and I was heard….
Gislene is amazing. She is very approachable and I felt I could discuss anything with her
It has been very difficult but I think throughout my therapy the right level of strictness and sympathy was always achieved… for someone who struggles so much with openness it is amazing how comfortable I feel with Gislene now.

…my therapist seemed to truly understand my inner feelings, treated me with respect, and overall made a huge improvement on my life. Thank you very much for your help.
