Hi, my name is Gordon. I believe in creating a relaxed space for you to explore what is going on for you. My goal is to listen to you, try and truly understand you and support you in making the changes you need to make your life feel better.
I have worked with clients from a wide range of different backgrounds from Opera singers dealing with performance anxiety, surgeons and doctors dealing with high pressure environments and people in the media where confidentiality is of utmost importance. Everything you talk about is between us and I will never judge you.
I specialise in domestic abuse which covers a wide range of topics whether it be the loss of identity and feelings of loneliness, the complex mixture of feelings of love and anger, or the difficulties men must deal with in a system that often feels biased against them. I have also spent years working with adolescents, including those with ADHD & ASD, finding it difficult to navigate this turbulent time in their lives and trying to figure out who they are.
I have a masters in counselling and psychotherapy and am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and am fully insured. This means I am regulated by ethical guidelines that ensure I provide the best standard of care possible. I am trained in Person Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and creative therapies. What this means for you is I can blend different styles of therapy to fit your way of thinking.
Areas of counselling that I offer include, but are not limited to:
Depression / low mood
Domestic abuse such as coercive control and gaslighting
Financial, emotional, and psychological abuse
Grief & loss
Low confidence / self-esteem
Male experience of domestic abuse
Stress / work-related stress
Unhelpful thoughts / patterns of behaviour
