***COVID-19 - I offer ONLINE counselling, and Covid risk assessed FACE to FACE Counselling.
Thank you for clicking on my profile to find out more about me.
I offer empathy and care in a non judgmental space. My aim is to offer what I would be looking for myself if I was having counselling. Someone that gets me, accepts all that I bring, and is genuine and honest as they work with me and the issues I share. So that is exactly what I offer to my clients.
You may want to work on how to cope with the here and now; the emotions, feelings and behaviours that you are currently battling with. Perhaps you want to understand yourself better and work with me to understand what might have led you to be feeling the way that you are. Whatever your aims are from counselling, or even if you are not really sure, I will offer therapy where you feel supported to explore and grow.
I work with private clients offering discreet person centred counselling from my own private practice.
- Low self-esteem
- Work issues
- Family issues
This list covers the issues that I predominantly work with, but sessions have often overlapped into other areas that may not be listed above, so please contact me if you are not sure, or would like an initial chat.
Also, you can find me on Facebook where my wife and I post daily about our counselling practice and related topics https://www.facebook.com/Shaun-Ellie-Gray-Counselling-Weston-Super-Mare-744397215654382

Shaun (FdSc, BSc (Hons), MBACP)
Training, qualifications & experience
In addition to private counselling, I volunteer for the charity CRUSE (Bereavement Counselling).
In private practice, I predominantly work with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, stress, communication issues, perfectionism and bereavement/loss.
I previously worked within a CAMHS team (Specialising in Children and Adolescent Counselling and Family Therapy). I worked with young people, but also working with parents of children who are attending CAMHS is an area that I have extensive experience in, and support for parents can at times be an area that does not get as much attention, so if this sounds like you, then please give me a call.
I work with clients Face to Face, but in addition, I am an Online therapist, and approximately 50% of my client sessions are through video call. My clients can choose face to face or online, and some use a combination of both.
I am fully qualified in counselling to honours degree level ~ FdSc BSc (Hons), and maintain ongoing professional development and membership of professional counselling associations to ensure that the therapy I offer is up to date and in line with current requirements.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
