My name is George and I offer affordable, short or long term counselling in Lydney and Newent, Forest of Dean.
I have a degree in Counselling Psychology and I'm in the final stages of an advanced counselling training at the Bath Centre of Psychotherapy and Counselling (BCPC). I am a member of the British Association for Counselling Psychotherapy (BACP) and I adhere to its code of ethical conduct.
My training has a humanistic and integrative ethos which allows me to really focus on you as an indvidual: experiencing you for who you are and what you bring. My counselling style is focused around building a relationship with you, I offer a calm and supportive environment in which I aim to work with you. I have worked with a wide range of issues such as bereavement, trauma, sexual abuse, anxiety and depression, sexuality, self-harm, eating disorders, relationship difficulties and self-esteem.
