Geraldine Grier Adv. Dip.CP MBACP
Helping people has always been my passion. I became interested in counselling in 2001 and after 5 years of intense studying I feel I can offer clients a wide range of knowledge. In my integrative approach to counselling I combine my Humanistic and Psychodynamic skills to provide a confidential and professional service to help my clients move on with their life. The counselling process will involve you exploring both your current concerns and past experiences. This will in turn allow you to implement changes in the way you do things, give you clarity to see a way forward and help you become more self-sufficient. Therefore enabling you to take steps forward to reach a much happier and more fulfilling life.
After our first session I can offer you a 'Therapy Schedule' to suit your needs. My aim is to be fully committed to work with you to resolve your issues, whether it be depression, marriage breakdown, relationship problems, anxiety or any other issue that is troubling you.
You can contact me on my mobile 07912387630, and if I am unavailable, please leave a message and be assured, I will definitely call you back.
"I provide a caring service that offers you the opportunity to start your journey of discovery, growth and achievement".
Training, qualifications & experience
I began my counselling studies at the University of Leicester, where I attained my Qualification in Psychodynamic Counselling in 2003.

I have worked as a Counsellor in Mind, the Pastoral Counselling Centre and Campbell House in Northampton where I have helped clients with relationship, anger, low self-esteem, anxiety, bereavement and stress issues.

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.
