My name is Gram, I trained in integrative counselling; a combination of different psychotherapy types that are useful together.
I am able to offer a thoughtful and friendly service, which goes at your own pace and where you can explore what is going on for you. To feel understood and approach change with some help. I welcome adults from different backgrounds, so if you would be glad to find a male therapist showing warmth and openness to others, I could be the right person for you.
I am available for open-ended talk therapy, including remote working. Counselling is effective (and available) online, by video, phone or via email. Or we can meet face to face, in a counselling room near the town-centre.
If you're curious but unsure where to start, why not write me a short email?
I’ll get back to you, and a free phone consultation without commitment will be available. It's a chance to ask questions and see how it feels to talk together. If you then want to try a full hour, I offer the first half-price because it's it's important to explore therapy before committing completely.
I've helped clients with things like:
- Mood and emotional issues
- Development and adversity
- Problems related to work, diagnosis or society
- Repeating life-patterns
I welcome any questions and I hope to hear from you soon.
Warm wishes, Gram
