Gregory Starbuck Counselling Service
Hello, firstly, I’d like to thank you for taking the time to read my profile here.
I recognise that you might feel slightly overwhelmed at present, not just by your own thoughts and feelings, but also by the amount of choice there is in finding a Counsellor.
I enjoy my work as a Counsellor and I take our work together seriously. It is my hope that you will also come to enjoy our working together. Like a comfortable pair of shoes, it is essential that you feel we are a 'good fit'. We will be sharing a journey together, and we might explore some difficult terrain together.
I offer my clients a safe space in which to take this journey. I am interested in your experience, and look to develop an honest environment, that facilitates the awareness and change that you may be seeking. You should hopefully feel confidentially heard and safely held throughout our time together.
Some problems that I have helped others with are: Anxiety, Workplace Stress, Abuse, Anger Management, Bereavement, Depression, Panic Attacks, Low Self-Esteem, Relationship Issues, Sexual Identity. This list is by no means all of them.
Get in touch, and I look forward to us working together.
Training, qualifications & experience
I gained my Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling in 2015, and following successful completion of the Certificate of Proficiency exam, became a Registered Member of the BACP in 2016.
I work as an Integrative Counsellor using three models of theory, Person-Centred, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). These models enable me to fully understand you as a person, from the way you think, to the way you experience the world around you, and relate to others.
Prior to my qualifying as a Counsellor the majority of my working life has been spent in Retail and Customer Service roles. I feel this enables me to offer client the warmth and security necessary for a good therapeutic experience. I have personal experience of many challenges that might occur in life, such as debt issues, and bereavement.
