Founder and CEO

Breakthrough is led by Giles Lascelle. Giles has over 25 years experience as a psychotherapist,  trainer and team facilitator. He has worked in the NHS, with a number of voluntary agencies, in Christian ministry and in private practice. He is a full clinical member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

He specialises in helping adult survivors of childhood abuse and trauma on their journeys of recovery and healing. He also has a passion for seeing people in churches and other community organisations trained and equipped to give effective support to survivors.

He lives in Bath with his wife Ally and an insanely overindulged cat.
