Who am I?
My name is Denise Gregory. I am a fully qualified counsellor, accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am bound by the BACP ethical guidelines, which means that I also have professional indemnity insurance, I receive regular professional supervision and undertake continuous professional development and training.
I embrace diversity and differences and I have been privileged to work with people from different walks of life, ethnicities, religions, cultures and sexualities. Difference does not have to mean isolation, misunderstanding or rejection. We can find a common language to work together by accepting and being curious about one another.

I worked for Victim Support, where I supported victims of crime, including survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse.
I worked for Marie Curie Cancer Care as a Helper, where I supported terminally ill individuals and their families.
I worked for Hope's Place until they closed at the end of May 2014 due to lack of funding. Hope's Place offered affordable counselling to clients with pregnancy related issues.
I also worked for University Hospitals Bristol, as an Occupational Health Counsellor where I supported NHS staff with general and professional issues, and for Network Counselling where I offered general counselling.
