Gillian M Proctor
Gillian is a Clinical Psychologist, person centred therapist and research supervisor. Passionate about the ethics and politics of life, relationships and therapy she loves writing and aims to bring academic thinking from various disciplines (predominantly counselling and psychotherapy, psychology, sociology and philosophy) together with clinical practice in an accessible way. Her initial interest in power in therapy led her to the relevance of politics and the socio-political context in therapy. In addition to reminding us that therapy occurs within a much wider context than the therapy dyad, issues of power also pointed within the person of the therapist to our own personal history, our values and beliefs and how these influence our ethical decisions. She also loves exploring these issues of relational dynamics by facilitating encounter groups.
