About me

Hi, my name is George and thank you for visiting my page.

Taking the first step into having counselling can be difficult and so I offer a free 20-minute telephone consultation or if easier for you, we can communicate via email. If we agree that we may be a suitable fit, we will arrange a face-to-face appointment at a convenient time at my room in central Guildford. We will have a discussion about the best way to move forward including whether you'd like to undertake short- or long-term counselling. Unfortunately I only have Monday time slots available at the moment.   

How Counselling Works

So what’s in it for you? For starters you will have someone to talk to. You will also have someone help you regain some direction and control which will lead to positive personal growth. You will get the support you may need to help you let go of fears and anxieties which are getting you down. Counselling offers a safe and confidential space in which you can talk about things that are on your mind. I do not give advice or provide answers but I do help you find new perspectives on how to manage your life. We might look at practical strategies to help you cope with issues such as Anxiety and Stress or to gain an understanding of Depression.
Every person is different and therefore requires a unique approach to resolving concerns. Counselling can help you find your footing and build you Self-Esteem to aid you in making better choices now and in the future. My job is not to offer advice but rather to help you realise your own power in finding the answers you need.

About me:

I offer individual counselling to adults have experience of working with the issues named above but also:

  • Generalised Depression
  • Shame and Guilt
  • Gender Identity / Dysphoria
  • Trauma
  • Agoraphobia
  • Social anxiety
  • Relationship issues
  • Redundancy / Retirement
  • Acute Male Depression
  • Bereavement and Loss
  • Thoughts of Suicide / Self-Harm
  • Sexuality / Coming Out

I work from a comfortable and private office in Guildford. If you want to know more about the nitty-gritty of my counselling style, please read on:

I am an Integrative counsellor which means that I am trained in different approaches to the work. I use aspects of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy which maintains a gentle curiosity about your processes and how your body responds to them, Psychodynamic theory which explores the impact your childhood experiences has on your adult life, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to help you identify negative thought patterns and how they influence your behaviour and also aspects of Solutions-Focused therapy which is a collaborative approach to using your existing coping strategies to help you.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
