About me and my therapy practice

My name is Greg; I am a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor based in Norwich. Working in a Person-Centred way means that I hope to place your experience at the heart of our work together. I will offer a safe place, free from external judgment and opinion, where you can explore the issues that are troubling you in your life. Over time, my hope is that you will experience Empathy and Acceptance and this will form the basis of a beneficial therapeutic relationship.

I trained as a counsellor after a career in education and a background in Fine Art. I find creativity, in its broadest sense, a very important element to counselling and I am open to creative ways of communication which enable clients to best engage with their own unique process in Therapy. I came to the counselling profession with a great deal of lived experience, both challenging and uplifting, and as a younger man I found my own counselling a life changing process. I believe deeply that a person can be truly themselves without the need to conceal aspects of their personality because of external influences - what a relief to be able to be more of who we are more of the time.

Practice description

A good therapeutic relationship can enable personal growth, provide the much-needed movement you may be seeking and begin or enhance the process of self-acceptance. Remaining stuck in a potentially damaging situation or engaging in harmful behaviours can often feel like the only way of coping. However, by developing self-awareness through counselling you can become more aware of initial triggers, and what can lead to this sense of stuckness in life.

Counselling at times can feel daunting; I will work alongside you in your therapeutic process, supporting you in your work. I am very open to hearing how the process feels for you the client. I welcome your feedback and thoughts throughout our time working together. 

My first session

I offer an exploratory session to potential clients at a reduced hourly rate so that both the client and I can see whether we feel able to work together.

Initial contact should be made by email. We can then book a time for your exploratory session to take place online using a secure and encrypted platform. During the exploratory session we can discuss your preference for face-to-face or online counselling sessions.
