My name is Richard Gale. I am a Person-Centred Practitioner and a partner in New Futures Counselling based in Headingley, Leeds. Our aim is to provide a professional and affordable service to adults, couples and young people.
I have been in private practice since 2003 and have provided counselling for a wide range of people experiencing a wide range of issues.
If you choose New Futures Counselling, you will be met and understood as an individual. The work will move along at your pace, as you uncover insight and resolution to your issues. You will be cared for as a person and you will know when you have got to where you want to be in yourself.
"Richard helped me through a most difficult time. His professional, caring, non-judgemental nature let me feel confident to explore some very deep issues. our discussions often challenged me to think differently and I always came away with a sense of having uncovered something very profound about myself. I can not put into words how much this has helped me."
"Richard's calm insight and experience helped me put many disjointed thoughts and feelings together in a meaningful way. I feel more self-aware and happier as a result."
In my past experience as a manager of a state funded counselling service in Leeds, I have been responsible for all aspects of a counselling service and managing a clinical team of counsellors; supporting their work and professional development.
I have also worked as a Part Time Tutor for Thomas Danby College, teaching Counselling Skills to Adult Learners. I have taught NLP (Neuro- Linguistic Programming) at the Swarthmore Education Centre. In addition to this, I have experience of being part of a team providing behavioural, emotional and therapeutic support to pupils in a Leeds High School who were at risk of exclusion or permanent exclusion. Over the past 18 months New Futures Counselling has provided support for staff, students and parent carers of a Leeds Pupil Referral Unit.
I have a deep regard for the humanity in us all, and over the years have come to believe that we all have the ability to grow, change, heal and move on as people and with our lives.
