G Barnwell Profile.jpg

I am an integrative psychotherapist and utilise a person’s personal strengths to overcome challenges. This therapeutic style affirms the inherent value of each individual.

In therapy, we’d work together with any process, challenge or distress that you may be experiencing. I draw from cognitive-behavioural, relational and depth psychology approaches to help support you where you are.   

I provide short-term and long-term online psychotherapy to adults. I have a warm approach, and therapy offers a space that is non-judgmental and confidential, where you may be yourself.

My areas of interest include:

  • Mental distress related to existential worries, grief, trauma, depression, anxiety, panic attacks or other personal experiences and challenges;
  • Relationship distress;
  • Men’s issues (such as relationship conflict and masculinity);
  • Occupational stress and burnout with a special interest in healthcare workers and people working in the NGO sector;
  • Living and coping with chronic illness;
  • Place-identity distress, such as moving to a new city, transfers, immigration;
  • Climate-related distress, grief, anxiety, anger (see group processes).
