Gary Jones MBACP
Today both men and women are increasingly aware of the importance of maintaining their mental health. If you are unsure whether counselling will be helpful, please contact me in confidence to discuss your situation without obligation.
I have experience working with a wide range of issues. Working mostly with depression, anxiety, bereavement, relationship and family issues, low self-esteem, and abuse including emotional, physical and sexual. However, please view a full list below.
As a qualified counsellor and supervisor I base my practice on honesty, transparency and a firm belief in respect for individuals. My approach is Humanistic / Modern Person Centred and I also draw on Transactional Analysis theory.
