Gary Symons MSc – Psychotherapist & Counsellor


I work in partnership with my clients to explore and resolve ways in which they want to make changes in their lives. The way I work is influenced by developmental and relational perspectives.

I am an integrative psychotherapist and qualified counsellor, holding an MSc in Integrative psychotherapy and the Metanoia diploma in integrative psychodynamic counselling.

I offer my clients a confidential and creative relationship where we can explore together difficulties you might be having in living life the way you want to.

As an integrative practitioner I draw on a range of therapy models to create a way of working that can be effective for you and what you want to work with. This can range from developing yourself as a person to more long-term and enduring difficulties you are struggling with.

I am happy to be contacted to discuss what you want to achieve from working together.

Typically having made contact we will arrange to meet for an initial session. This session is charged at the rate we agree only if we continue to work together.

What I can help with

I am experienced in working with a broad range of clients, both individuals and couples, who are looking for help to make changes in their lives. This could be developing yourself as a person to more long-term and enduring difficulties you are struggling with and includes:


  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship & Partnership difficulties
  • Trauma
  • Work related stress
  • Addictions
  • Personal development and Coaching


You might not be clear about what it is you are looking to work with – it might not fit into the areas mentioned above. Talking to someone can help and people often find it starts the process of change.

I work with clients long-term and in short-term time focused ways. We will talk about which approach is likely to be suitable for you.
