About me

I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor, and hypnotherapist, established for 6 years in the UK, with a degree in Psychology and Communications. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, relationship issues, coping with grief and loss, motivation, self esteem, and confidence together with a wide range of other issues that may be preventing you from being the person you truly want to be.

I work with my clients to create a warm and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Having an integrative approach I am able to combine different elements of counselling such as REBT, CBT, existential and psychodynamic modalities tailored to fit your individual needs.

We all possess the inner resources to heal and grow and I can help you to remove the obstacles preventing you from living your best life, helping you understand the negative issues and emotions that may have held you back.

Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.

My therapist is an excellent listener and communicator. He made it easy for me to explain my struggles and he provided solutions and ways to improve. The methods provided by my therapist have been very helpful. I started noticing improvement immediately.

He is good at what he does!

Gary is a friendly, warm naturally empathetic therapist. He listens when is required and is also not afraid to speak up and give feedback when he feels necessary. Therapy with Gary, for me, has very much been a two way street with give and take from both myself and Gary and not just someone who ‘listens to your problems and is understanding’ - although of course that has its benefits at times. It has helped me gain invaluable perspective on things that I couldn’t access on my own.

I think that has been the main benefit of my time with Gary has been getting his feedback in combination with some really useful exercises for putting into practice different strategies for better assertiveness, dealing with anxiety and more.

He also has a great sense of humour which really helped me open up. Couldn’t reccomend him highly enough. Thank you Gary!
