Greig Hyam - Youth Support Counsellor (BACP ACCREDITED MEMBER)
Counselling gives you an opportunity to talk with someone who is trained to listen attentively and to help you improve things. Sometimes, it is difficult to say what is on your mind to others around you, and counselling support gives you the opportunity to talk in confidence to someone who is anonymous and separate from your everyday life.
I am able to offer you a safe, confidential place to talk about your life and anything that might cause you confusion, pain, discomfort, anxiety, sleeplessness or low mood.
I have a warm broad-minded, friendly empathetic style, and welcome clients from a diverse range of backgrounds.
I grew up in Beverley, and still have strong family ties to the area, despite having lived in London and Sydney for most of my adult life.
I run my therapy practice from home and the therapeutic space I offer is a warm, comfortable private setting. I offer short- and long-term humanistic counselling with a solution focussed approach.
I live only a few minutes' walk from the town centre towards the Westwood. Up to 2 hours free parking is available on the street outside the practice.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Masters Degree in Counselling and Applied Psychotherapy, and a Foundation Certificate in Systemic Family Therapy (AFT accredited). Prior to that I worked for a chain of International English Language Schools, both in the UK and abroad, supporting young people in the roles I performed over twenty years.
Since becoming a fully-qualified counsellor therapist in 2011, I have helped clients with a number of problems, such as anger management, relationship issues, addictions, stress, anxiety, trauma, low self-esteem and depression, as well as issues surrounding sexuality, gender identity, sexual health, and sexual and emotional abuse.
I also have experience working with mental health issues, and have counselled clients suffering from borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder, and Asperger's syndrome sufferers, as well as those struggling in relationships with loved ones or work colleagues who suffer from a lack of empathy for others, or have a bullying, narcissistic or sociopathic personality style.
I have also worked with young persons, aged 13 to 19 years, over the last five years, suffering from a range of emotional problems, including depression, anxiety, bereavement and loss, low self esteem, past trauma and and sexual orientation and sexual identity issues.
I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor - Membership Number 721683
Registered / Accredited

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.
