Phil Gowler Portrait

Thank you for visiting my website, my name is Phil.

Why are you here?

Perhaps it is because you are in emotional or physical distress. Or both.

And perhaps that distress has now become overwhelming.

I understand, you are in safe hands. Your problem is my passion.

Phil completely changed the way I viewed therapists. He listens attentively but also has a range of brilliant and leading-edge tools to help overcome challenges. He has the perfect balance of being professional whilst being very human and compassionate. I felt completely at ease with him from day one. He is generous, caring and very talented. I’m very grateful to him and am so glad I found him. Thank you Phil for everything, you are second to none.

Here are some of my latest blogs

GRIEF.

One of our biggest causes of anxiety, fear, grief and even anger is that we live in a world where we have the illusion that we can control everything. We can’t. We want the world to stay the same. It won’t. Change is inevitable, in fact it’s constant, we just don’t tend to see it, but small changes happen every day.

My favourite therapy technique: The use of Metaphor.

I use metaphor a lot. I find that it works to my strengths and my therapy style. It’s certainly not the only therapy tool I use, but it’s one that I have found to be very successful. It works, because it is a story with a purpose, and is therefore SYMBOLIC.

Covid-19 and mental health

Traditionally, mental health has always been the poor relation when it comes to funding. If this situation does not improve, the consequences of Covid-19 may echo down future years for some time to come.
