“I have been working with Gary for over two years and he has been extremely helpful in giving me insight into my thoughts, feelings and behaviour. He explains the psychotherapeutic processes he uses in a simple way and is excellent at identifying and helping me to confront underlying issues, some of which I wasn't even aware of. He has given me helpful psychotherapeutic tools to use in daily life and taught me to recognise emotional signs and triggers, and how to respond to them. He illustrates his points in an understandable way based on his experience. He is not afraid of challenging me and asking deep and difficult questions ("tough love") in a supporting way. In doing so, I feel he always has my best interests at heart (he even makes himself available outside of the sessions) and I trust him implicitly. In short, Gary really cares (objectively and professionally). His work with me has massively improved my mental health and overall wellbeing, which meant I coped with some dark and difficult periods in my life much better than I otherwise would have done. I wish I'd found Gary years ago, I cannot recommend him highly enough.“

Very supportive with an open manner, that facilitates constructive dialogue. Very constructive sessions that provoke deep analysis on my part. He has help me to understand the motivation for my actions, and interactions with others. Although any psychotherapy session has the potential to expose difficult and painful experiences Gary has been supportive and constructive in guiding me through a very difficult multi faceted journey.

Worldclass psychotherapy, outstanding! I went to initial sessions with a few other London psychotherapists first before seeing Gary, and they weren't sufficiently thoughtful, didn't have a great bedside manner, and/or didn't help me to address my underlying patterns of behavior and improve myself. Gary is incredibly sharp, thoughtful, and kind, and he is in a league of his own. He helps me realize my behavioral patterns and predispositions in ways that are beneficial to my long-term wellbeing and health. As good as it can get as far as psychotherapy goes, and highly recommend.

Gary has helped guide me through some of the hardest things I have ever experienced and has always been able to skillfully reframe my problems. He has a great ability to make me laugh at myself and show me alternative ways of thinking. He is very knowledgeable and skilled in all areas of psychotherapy and I have learned a lot from him. I feel immensely comfortable with Gary and he has been an incredibly important part of my life.

Gary has helped me start to climb out of a deep hole. He's been supportive, challenging and insightful. He's helped me be honest with myself and with others and to make very difficult decisions. Above all, I've always felt he's on my side.
