Welcome, my name is Jason Gillery, I trained and qualified as a Psychosexual Therapist, a Relationship and Young Person’ counsellor (age 10+), with Relate Mid-Yorkshire in York, working with individuals, couples and young people. I have worked as a counsellor and therapist for Relate for 7 years and have been in private practice for 4 years.
Currently, I work at Relate National as a Clinical Supervisor and counsellor, delivering counselling face to face, live chat, webcam, telephone and by email. I also worked for 7 years as a trustee and counsellor for the charity Survive in York. Helping and supporting adult survivors in dealing with the trauma of sexual abuse, rape and sexual assault. I work with their partners and the couple, which can be helpful in the understanding of the impacts and how to manage their relationships and sex lives in a good way.
During my time with Relate I have worked on a number of projects including iRelate, a project working in conjunction with schools across the country supporting young people online, and am currently involved with working online supporting parents of troubled teens through Relate National. I am also a trained trainer and have helped deliver training to parents of teens.
I believe that the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist is the most important aspect in working towards change and helping you to get to where you want to be. I work in an empathic, non – judgemental and an integrative way. Meaning that I work with a range of theories and use the theories which suits you the clients needs the most. After all we are all different and what works for one doesn’t for another.
I have regular supervision, both individually and as part of a group of qualified counsellors. I am member of the British Association for Counselling Psychotherapy (BACP) and the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT).
Since qualifying, I have helped clients, male and female, young and old, with a range of issues. Such as low sexual desire, premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, vaginismus, depression, relationship issues, addictions, stress, anxiety, trauma, low self-esteem, bullying, parents separating, anti social behaviour and anger in young people, as well as issues surrounding sexuality, sexual and domestic abuse.
I offer counselling and psychosexual therapy in York, I work from home in a comfortable environment located in (YO24). Outside on street parking available. I offer sessions throughout the week daytime, evening and weekend appointments are available .
