Who we are

Mark Gawlinski

Hi, I’m Mark. I work as an anger management counsellor, counsellor. psychotherapist, coach and supervisor (of counsellors, coaches and organisational development practitioners). I am also the co-founder of Cambridge Counselling Service.

I hope we will be able to work together to make a positive and sustainable difference to your life. I also specialise in working with people dealing with anger issues and with people facing problems at work/in a career.

I have previously worked as an Associate Counsellor at the University of Cambridge Counselling Service, at a counselling service in London and at the NHS Complex Cases Service Cambridge, part of NHS Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Mental Health Foundation Trust. I have also worked as a senior lecturer in leadership for a university and as an organisational development consultant, coach and trainer in a number of organisations.

My work as a senior lecturer focused on the psychology of change in individuals and groups – and I am currently writing a book about how to get the most from counselling, coaching and change.

I am trained as a relational gestalt counsellor and psychotherapist. I work ‘relationally’ and at relational depth. This means I work with the on-going relationship between the client and anger management counsellor and see this as an essential component of sustainable change. I focus on helping my clients identify their psychological patterns – and then explore whether and how they can change them.

I did my counselling and psychotherapy training at the Metanoia Institute, London.

In terms of qualifications and memberships, I am a qualified psychotherapist (MSc in Psychotherapy), a qualified counsellor (Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling) and a registrant with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) – psychotherapy section. I have a first degree in psychology, a masters degree in psychotherapy and a masters degree in organisation consulting. One master’s degree research dissertation was on depression, the other on the psychological issues faced by people at work.

As a registrant with UKCP, I am bound by UKCP’s Ethical Framework and subject to the UKCP professional conduct procedure.

I am registered with a range of private medical and well-being insurance providers, including Aviva, PruHealth, CPA, Cigna and Benenden Healthcare. I can accept referrals from GPs or psychiatrists, subject the terms of your health insurance provision.

I am available for appointments: Tuesday day time, Wednesday day time and early evening, Thursday day time and Friday day time.

Louise Lowth

Hi, I’m Louise. I work as an anger management counsellor, counsellor and psychotherapist.

I have particular experience in anger management and in issues of self confidence.

In addition to Cambridge Anger Management, I work for the NHS, where I see individual clients and run a range of psychotherapy groups. I also work for Cambridge Counselling Service.

I’m an integrative relational counsellor, which means I believe that relationships are what makes us who we are and our experiences can be best understood within the context of our relationships. Counselling provides the setting of a professional and supportive relationship, and difficult emotions and experiences can be explored within this context. As a result of such exploration, you may find that you have greater understanding along with increased capacity for choice and autonomy.

I have a first degree in psychology, I am a qualified psychotherapist, I have diploma in teaching and I am in the final stages doctoral research in counselling psychology. I am also trained in facilitating psychotherapy groups and have trained to Master Practitioner level in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). I trained in psychotherapy at the renowned Metanoia Institute in London.

In terms of memberships, I am a member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) psychotherapy section and Member of the British Psychological Society (BPS).

I am bound by the UKCP’s ethical principles and code of professional conduct.

I offer anger management sessions on Monday, Tuesday, Thursdays and Friday.

Lucy Fuller

Hello, I’m Lucy. I practise as an anger management counsellor and as a psychotherapist. I work with a variety of techniques and methods to suit my clients which might include the use of creative materials and resources, which can sometimes really help people to express themselves, especially when the subject matter is very difficult or confusing.

As well as working with adults, I also have experience of working with couples, families, teenagers, young children and parents with infants. I have particular experience of working with anxiety, depression, anger and low self-esteem. I believe that therapy gives you the opportunity to understand more about yourself and your relationships with others and gives you the chance to look at your life and your circumstances through a different lens. The success of the process lies within the therapeutic relationship and being able to express your deepest concerns in a safe and supportive environment. I believe that everyone has a natural drive towards contentment and fulfilment but there may be many obstacles and suffering along the way and sometimes these can be difficult to define and understand. Therapy can help you to identify more clearly the issues you are facing and so start to facilitate therapeutic change.

I am available Tuesday mornings, Friday evenings and Sundays.

I have previously worked as a secondary school teacher and have an MEd in The Theory and Application of Counselling from Cambridge University and an MA in Integrative Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy and Counselling from Terapia/Middlesex University. I have also trained in Couples Therapy at the Relational Academy in Cambridge. I have a great love of horses and I have trained with EAGALA (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association) and worked in Equine Assisted Therapy for groups and individuals. I am a fully accredited member of the UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) and a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).
