My Approach

Considering therapy….
I have witnessed the energy and effort it can take when people are at the point of considering therapy, or considering on behalf of their son/daughter. Sometimes the idea of doing something different, taking a risk, can feel uncertain and unknown, however if you have got this far I commend you.

First and foremost I am passionate about helping people and if you have got this far this means you are contemplating a change, I acknowledge change can be hard, especially if you have faced immense difficulty which can test our levels of resilience.

My approach
My theoretical approach offers me the ability to support people to think about their strengths, resources and explore their relationship to this.

As well as acknowledge what has and may still feel difficult in a way that is validating, and with a neutral person to the problem/difficulty which can often in itself can offer people relief.

I see the utter importance and value of creating a safe base in therapy, prioritising the therapeutic relationship which can enable anyone who is looking for help, or support, to make the change/s necessary to face the difficulties in a new way.

As a systemic psychotherapist I can work in a variety of ways, individual, couples, and families. Our approach enables us to hold relationships in any context of a persons life in mind, to support the work that we do.

About Me

My name is Faye Gilks and I am a qualified Family and Systemic Psychotherapist who has worked in a child and adolescent NHS mental health service for the last 5 years, and prior to this learning the craft of working and engaging with a variety of young people, adults and families in peoples homes, schools and the community, (early help, youth service, and youth justice).

I believe I have a wide range of working skills and experiences, supporting young people and families in a variety of contexts. Alongside these skills, the values I hold strongly both personally and professionally are honesty, integrity, authenticity, creativity and openness.

Working as a therapist for the last 5 years has shown me how crucial it can be for people to have a reflective, open space with a neutral person, who can facilitate more open and difficult discussions to support people in patterns that they may have become stuck in, they are unaware of, or may want to further understand.

As both my theory base (systemic psychotherapy) and my personal beliefs, is that all people/relationships have resources within them, and my purpose when initiating a therapeutic relationship is to consider these and support a young person, adult or family to make sustainable changes.
