Ryan Grey, BA (Hons) MBACP
Hi I'm Ryan. I'm an Integrative Counsellor. I am trained and experienced in a range of therapy methods, and my core approach is Person Centred.
I am a member of the BACP, the British Association for Counselling And Psychotherapy, and I work within their ethical code of practice.
Counselling is empowering, liberating and can be life changing. I believe that a strong therapeutic relationship is key to effective growth and change.
I am a calm, warm and non-judgmental person. I offer a safe, comfortable and confidential environment where I can work with you to explore and resolve your issues and to achieve your personal goals.
I offer both daytime and evening appointments, whichever is more suitable for you.
I offer a free 30 minute consultation to see whether counselling will be right for you, with no obligation to proceed further.
