Counselling and Psychotherapy in Woking and Guildford GU22 in Surrey
Welcome to my website.
My name is Chris Gore and I am a BACP accredited Psychodynamic Counsellor with over 20 years experience of working with individuals and groups in many different settings. I offer short or longer-term therapy to individuals, couples and groups.
I am guessing that you might want to make sense of a situation in your life or the way you are feeling about yourself or others? This may be a first step so it could be quite a confusing and anxiety provoking time. Whatever brings you here I will take your concern seriously and try to help you think about a way forward.
I have a particular interest in how feelings of shame can impact on one's self-worth and inhibit the potential to live a creative and fulfilling life. My work involves, amongst many other things, trying to understand the role shame, guilt, loss and unresolved grief can have on one's life. These feelings are often masked by feeling lethargic, depressed , unsatisfied with life along with feeling angry and can be puzzling and problematic to oneself and perhaps to your wider network.
The list below highlights some of the presenting issues one can face but not all:
•Isolation and loneliness
•Panic attacks and Phobias
•Anxiety, suicidal thoughts, trauma
•Bereavement, unresolved grief and loss
•Troublesome thoughts, feelings and behaviours that are causing distress
•Addiction- alcohol, food, sex, exercise etc.
•Compulsive activity as a way of fending off depressive feelings
If you would like further information please read About Me and How I Work to get more of a sense of who I am, my professional qualifications and experience and other areas that I have worked in. My testimonial page shows what others have thought of my work and my fees. Do contact me if you would like to organise an initial session where we can explore your needs further.
All calls and messages are only accessed by myself and will be treated in the strictest confidence.
My practice is now located in between Woking and Guildford in a very quiet and tranquil setting. I am easily accessible by car from many areas of Surrey.
