We can all experience difficulties at times and feel overwhelmed, confused, scared or alone. It is not always easy or practical to confide in friends or family. In such situations, counselling can often help.
So... What is counselling?
- A confidential and safe place to explore and discuss your concerns, your thoughts, your emotions and your feelings without fear of judgement.
- A trusting relationship with a qualified professional who will listen to you and respond with empathy, acceptance, impartiality and honesty.
Who am I and how can I help?
My name is Denise Gregory. I am a qualified integrative counsellor, working in Yate, South Gloucestershire and Bristol areas . Please browse who I am, my qualifications and my experience for further information.
I embrace diversity and differences and I have been privileged to work with people from different walks of life. I have experience working with various issues, including depression, anger, infertility, pregnancy issues, rape, sexual violence, domestic abuse, trauma.
Whatever you are experiencing, we will explore it together, patiently and at your own pace. My approach is non-directive, meaning that you decide what and how much you tell me.
I will use different models and techniques to adapt my approach to your unique needs. The most important aspect of our work together will be our relationship, based on trust, empathy and acceptance. Please look at my approach for more information.
I offer face-to-face, short-term, long-term and open-ended counselling. The 30 minute initial consultation is free to give us the opportunity to meet, get to know each other and decide if we can work together while giving you a chance to ask me questions. Concessions are available for clients on low-income and student counsellors, as described in the fee section.
Session times can be flexible, including evenings and Saturdays. If you would like to contact me for further information, to book a confidential initial free consultation or for an informal chat, I would be happy to hear from you.
