Greg Young, MSc Counselling, BACP/Individual Member
Life brings many challenges and the pressure can be overwhelming. Sometimes we just need to sit and talk with a non-judgemental person who we don’t know. As we talk, we feel somehow lighter. As we continue the sessions it becomes easier and easier to let go of those thoughts we thought we would have forever. As a counsellor my role is to provide space and guidance to help you on your journey of self-discovery; to enable you to examine your life and make new, meaningful choices within it.
I offer you a chance to reflect on the difficulties or problems (anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, social anxiety, feeling sad) you are experiencing in a safe and confidential environment with someone from outside your day-to-day life. Together we can explore what's going on with you in a way that leads to fresh perspectives - and perhaps a new understanding of yourself. Counselling isn’t about giving you solutions or advice, but it is about empowering you to make your own changes.
I'm an integrative therapist which means I use several different approaches to give you the most effective guidance possible. My approach to therapy is grounded in person-centred therapy as first theorised and developed by Carl Rogers. This is a non-judgmental way of working, where I step back and let you speak, where I let you express yourself the way you want. In addition, I include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness.
If you are ready to take the next step, please don't hesitate to call me or send me a quick email to set up your free 15-minute session via Zoom or by phone. I do my best to respond on the same day that you've called or emailed. If I don't respond on the same day, I will respond within 24 hours and no later.
Training, qualifications & experience
At 59 years-old, I earned a MSc Counselling degree from Bangor University. I work from my office seeing clients on Mondays and Tuesdays, and I also see clients via Zoom.
I've travelled the world and have many years practice in Mindfulness, yoga, meditation, Qigong and Tai Chi.
I also have 2.5 years experience working in a children's home in North Wales.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
