Gregory Donaldson PGDip, MBACP
Sometimes we can lose our way in life and we start to wonder what it’s all about. I believe that we all have an ’emerging purpose’ even if we are not aware of it. Counselling is a way of tuning into our purpose by working through the blocks and resistances that show up in our lives in the form of addictions, limiting behaviours or even depression. Talking in a safe and confidential space can help us find perspective and clarity, enabling us to step away from anxiety and fully into our own lives.
Probably the most important thing is that you meet with someone who you can get on with and trust. This page will hopefully give you some sense of me as a person, as well as information about my training and approach.
I work in London & Brighton offering weekly 50 minute sessions.

What clients have said about working with Greg
“I felt terribly isolated and despairing that I could sustain my caring role when I started counselling. My counsellor provided a safe space and a strong supportive presence in which to explore my difficulties and I have emerged feeling so much stronger, confident and capable, especially regarding managing change..
My counsellor was an exceptionally gifted listener and very empathic. This meant I could be very open and truthful with him and this has been a powerfully transforming experience for me which I have internalised and will carry with me."
