About me

Welcome to my profile, I'm Greg.

I've always believed that a compassionate, open-minded approach to counselling is the best way forward for my clients. As an experienced counsellor, I can help you develop the confidence and self-awareness to understand your emotions and work through your difficulties.

At Counselling Twickenham, I see our work together as a way of encouraging you towards meaningful change. A partnership which thrives on effective listening and feedback, as you make sense of your thoughts and emotions, and learn how to repair broken relationships. I can help you tackle your issues while remaining true to yourself. As you continue with the counselling process, you will learn to overcome the distress of anxiety, anger, depression or trauma. Or you may want to make adjustments to erratic behaviour and conflict in relationships. I have a Masters Degree as a counsellor and psychotherapist. I've worked for over 12 years in private practice, at MIND, NHS, university and other counselling agencies.

Most people find me warm, open and sensitive to their needs. As well as having a good sense of humour, I always show an attitude of tolerance and respect. While I am aware it can be challenging to talk through your problems with a counsellor, it's vital to air your concerns with someone you trust. I see myself as committed to your needs and able to attune to your emotions, yet remain neutral. A therapist who can offer you an overview of your situation and discuss alternative solutions without a hidden agenda. I also offer Mindfulness practice based on the latest scientific research on the brain and neuroscience.

In the midst of a personal crisis, your emotions, thoughts and relationships might be undermining your ability to cope and make informed decisions. You may be suffering with anxiety, stress, depression, anger or grief you cannot let go. This can lead to a sense of alienation and feeling out of control. In my practice I listen with patience and empathy, offering alternative solutions and restoring independence. To my mind, counselling is an opportunity to understand yourself and make better choices. As well as developing self-acceptance and mutual respect in relationships. And a deeper understanding of your unconscious conflicts.

I have the privilege of of working alongside people from many different backgrounds, cultures, professions, genders and sexual orientations. Working at home and abroad in India, Cyprus, New guinea and Brazil. I have over 12 years experience and trained as a counsellor at MIND, the NHS and the first male counsellor at Portsmouth Rape Crisis Service. I have also practised counselling at Winchester University and supervised trainee counsellors at St. Mary's University.

At Counselling Twickenham and Whitton, we will work in partnership to address your concerns while you develop a greater capacity for insight and reflection. And I will provide a safe framework for your progress. With each step forward, we will work on your strengths to find solutions that meet your needs. Mindfulness can also help you find equilibrium and wellbeing; attending to the present moment rather than getting stuck in the past or anticipating the future.

I offer counselling at affordable rates:

  • Individual counselling - £50/hour (daytime) £55/hour (evening)
  • Couples counselling   - £65/hour (anytime)


Frequently Asked Questions

What happens in counselling? There isn't a right way or a wrong way of doing counselling. You simply tell your story in the best way you can, as I listen and ask questions or offer helpful feedback. This includes developing self-awareness and making sense of your thoughts, emotions & patterns of behaviour, even when they aren’t clear. Then we work in partnership to resolve your issues and find a way forward together.

Do I have to know what I’m doing, or talking about in counselling? There aren't any rules in counselling so relax. You don't need to don’t know what to do or say, just allow yourself a little time to reflect as you talk. You don’t have to come prepared or know exactly where to begin – just the ability to slowly piece together your story. If you feel unsure about what happens next, don’t worry. I have no expectations. You can ask questions, take your time and I will try to help through the process, as you find the words.

Will I be judged or diagnosed with anything? No. Counselling is an opportunity to talk openly and not feel judged. As a counsellor it's my jobe to listen without prejudice and offers you constructive feedback. I will not be diagnosing you with any conditions; or speak in 'psychobabble' over your head. If you’re not sure about something, I'll be only too happy to explain it as often as you’d like.

How long does counselling last? It’s up to you. Just use your instincts. Usually you'll feel the benefit of progress counselling in a short space of time. Simply trust yourself to make the best decision based on whether you have benefited or learned things which are sustainable.

Do I have to have something seriously wrong with me? There is nothing too trivial or serious for counselling. You will be accepted whether you're in crisis, need support or curious about how to change your life around . You just have to feel ready to take the next step.

Please contact me to discuss your concerns, obligation free. Or visit my website on the link www,enduringmind.co.uk above. I look forward to hearing from you. The first consultation is simply a way of seeing if we work well together and there is no pressure to commit.
