Gareth Owen Parry RegMBACP Dip Couns, BSc 1st class Hons Couns & Psychotherapy
My name is Gareth,
If difficulties from the past, painful experiences in the present, or worries about the future leave you distressed and feeling as though you can't cope with day-to-day life, then my counselling service can provide an opportunity for you to talk through your difficulties and issues to find closure and resolution in the comfortable, confidential safe space of the Hebden Bridge Therapy Centre.
My counselling practice aims to provide a safe and non-judgemental environment in which clients can work towards goals of self actualisation and personal acceptance.
Sessions are based upon the approach of Person-Centred, meaning they are focused on and directed by you, the client, but as an integrative counsellor I do also utilise other approaches during the counselling process. During each session, I work alongside you with an empathic, congruent and understanding mind, facilitating your journey of self exploration and building self understanding, self awareness, self worth and self confidence.
50 minute session – £30-£40 (depending upon income)
Your introductory session is free. This will allow us to determine the focus and goal of your sessions, discuss the contract between ourselves and determine the exact cost of your sessions.
I offer professional therapy for a range of issues including
- self esteem
- relationship issues
I am a qualified, professional therapeutic counsellor offering a private person-centred counselling practice in Hebden Bridge to people in West Yorkshire, East Lancs, North Manchester and the surrounding areas.
