Gavin Mayes-Long MSc BACP FDAP - Addiction Therapist
If you are reading this then I am guessing that you have reached a place where things are not going as you would like them to, or that you feel 'stuck'. My goal is not to give you the answers, my goal is to help you realise that you already have the answers.
I am a fully insured and supervised therapist specialising in addiction. I work in a Humanistic way and, although my specialism is addiction, I work with various issues including depression, relationships, trauma, and grief. I utilise various approaches, including Adlerian therapy, CBT and attachment theory. I tailor my approach to you, my client.
I work out of my comfortable and self-enclosed therapy room in Earith, Cambridgeshire which offers off-street parking. I also have a location in Central Cambridge, which is well served by bus routes and is close to Cambridge Train Station. There are car parks within short walking distance.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an MSc Addiction Psychology & Counselling, BA (Hons) Social Policy, I have trained in Adlerian Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Person Centred Counselling. As a working therapist I am committed to my own personal growth and also keeping abreast of current work and therefore I attend regular therapy (alongside Supervision) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
I continue to work in a wide range of areas, and my experience covers a variety of settings such as residential rehabs, community services and prisons. These include:
The Priory, Central & North West London NHS Foundation Trust, Rehabilitation of Addicted Prisoners Trust (RAPt), Staffordshire & South Shropshire NHS Foundation Trust, Phoenix Futures Sanctuary Lodge, Focus12, Sanctuary Lodge, Perry Claymore Project (PCP) and Change Grow Live.
Areas of counselling I deal with
My fees are £50 for a 50 minute session. I operate a sliding scale as I believe therapy should be accessible to all. Contact me for more information.
I firmly believe that you are the expert in your life, and that my job is to listen. Receiving counselling is about giving yourself the space to find your own truth. This may initially feel strange, but, as we progress on this - your journey - together my hope is that this will start feeling natural and you will gain the confidence to move forward.
