About me

Are you struggling with an addiction that has spiralled out of control? If so, you may feel isolated, helpless and ashamed. Do you feel STUCK and see no way out of the horrible grasp that addiction has on you?

Well you are not alone and you don't have to try and combat addiction alone anymore. You can have the life you deserve by having the support you deserve.

Has addiction left you with depression, anxiety, career issues, relationship or marriage problems? My approach is to develop a relaxed and non-clinical professional relationship with you.

I recognise that the first step to recognising addiction and admitting you are in emotional pain is often the most daunting.

I will support you with that first step and the path that follows. Together, we develop individual strategies that produce results and lead to a more fulfilling life.

Is it time to rediscover a sense of calm, feel good about yourself and live life to the full again?

Counselling can be a step in the right direction.

Counselling will help you discover new perspectives to your situation, challenge assumptions and identify how to make better choices.

You can either call or text me on 07766 756 013  or send an e-mail to gary@gary-galano.co.uk.

There is no commitment right away. During our initial consultation, we will discuss the issues you are facing and review how I can be of assistance. From there, you can decide how you would like to proceed. 

Remember, it’s never too late to have the life you deserve.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
