Gillian Padgett Bio:

My interest in holistic stress management began early in my professional career as a Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist. Working with Victims of Crime and Families of Murder Victims in the UK, I discovered that no matter how traumatic the experience, a client recovered more quickly when they were able to handle stress.

This led me to study stress, how it affects the mind, body, emotions and spirit as well as a number of different modalities and approaches to health and wellbeing. I developed a flexible program called Stress Wisdom which has been taught to clients, groups and companies. My workbook Stress Wisdom – the holistic approach to stress is currently being revised and updated with new information and research material.

Working in the UK and Canada I have collaborated with:

• Medical and natural health practices / practitioners
• Insurance companies
• Human Resources Departments
• Traditional, complementary and mental health professional treatments

I had been suffering chronic stress for about 10 years, both work and personal, and requested a referral from my employer to see Gillian. Gillian has a gift of being able to listen and empathize without losing focus or her intent. She is sincere in her efforts to help those who wish to help themselves. She has a veritable arsenal of physical and mental exercises to provide to a task-oriented person such as myself. Her knowledge extends across a wide field of disciplines in the health services arena. Gillian Padgett is a true professional and a very humanitarian individual.

I went to Gillian for hypnosis to assist me in losing weight and in 4 sessions she helped me to focus my goals on getting healthy in all areas of my life. She has definitely helped me to make many positive changes in my life including taking better care of myself so that I can take better care of my family. Thanks Gillian!

Gillian has worked with me over a period of 5 years. During this time she has provided support for different pressures including work related stress, illness and bereavement. Her knowledge, skills and holistic approach have enabled me not only to enhance my life but to transform it. She is an excellent practitioner.

My employers … referred me to Gillian for counselling following the breakdown of my marriage. I was in a very distraught and emotionally unbalanced state and unable to face a future without my husband who had left me without warning to live with another woman. Gillian helped me to like myself again, to stop feeling a failure, to regain my self-confidence and be a more positive person … and … turned my life around from a seemingly worthless state to one that can be enjoyed without the need to rely on someone else for personal happiness. I am happier with myself now than I have ever been.
