G Barnwell Profile.jpg

In psychotherapy, I work with your personal strengths to overcome challenges. My therapeutic style affirms the inherent value of each individual.

In therapy, I am guided by what you bring to the therapeutic process and value the importance of the therapeutic relationship. We’d work together with any process, challenge or distress that you may be experiencing.

I provide short-term and long-term online therapy for anyone and in-person psychotherapy for those who have been vaccinated. I have a warm approach, and therapy offers a space that is non-judgemental and confidential, where you may be yourself.

My areas of interest include:

  • Mental distress related to existential worries, grief, depression, anxiety, panic attacks or other personal experiences and challenges
  • Trauma or stress, including different forms of political oppression
  • Relationship distress 
  • Occupational stress and burnout with a special interest in healthcare workers and people working in the NGO sector;
  • Living and coping with chronic illness;
  • Migration and place-identity distress, such as moving to a new city, transfers, immigration;
  • Psychological experiences of climate change and environmental degradation
