About me and my therapy practice
Hi, I'm Gary, a qualified person-centred counsellor and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I offer one to one therapeutic counselling to adults and children. This can be facilitated either face to face (currently suspended due to Covid-19 guidelines), over the telephone or via online video call.
My passion is working as a counsellor supporting people with many differing needs from a wide variety of professional and private backgrounds. I offer compassion and understanding with the highest levels of confidentiality and professionalism, coupled with extensive experience in a number of other professional areas enabling me to connect and empathise with my clients.
The services I offer are a scaffold to help and improve on what is needed, to sustain and build on those building blocks of growth and success. I promise to support you on your journey. My goal is to help you overcome your struggles, heal from your pain, and grow towards the fulfilment of your unique identity.
If you would like to find out more about how I can help, please get in touch.
