Glen GibsonIntegrative psychotherapist
London Counselling & Psychotherapy Services in Camden
Working at your own pace, I aim to bring clarity, creativity and sensitivity to my work with warmth, humour and maturity. With my passionate beliefs of self-determination and responsibility, I offer fresh insight in an affirming, supportive and jargon-free way, checking with you if what I'm saying, resonates and fits. Having an impartial perspective, I usually work both intuitively and with knowledge, experience, understanding of what brings you to counselling. I recognise people can't simply be reduced down to a label, diagnosis, symptoms or issues. Viewing the counselling as a joint exploration, I value the humanity in us all and acknowledge our own resources, qualities and strengths alongside our frailties, limitations, and vulnerabilities.
I value each person's uniqueness and respond in an individual way to your circumstances. I recognise that no one theory holds the truth, and that deep and lasting change is possible at any stage of life. Counselling or psychotherapy is not an exact science and I do not hold a “one size fits all” approach. Some people come prefer gentle guidance, whereas others seek tools & techniques. My experience and training includes working with a range of approaches and strategies.
My focus is less about techniques or analysis and more about exploration, providing an external perspective, helping to shed light upon the obstacles in your life, so insights can be gained to change the areas you want to change or manage your life differently.
My role is to get to know you and for you to develop a greater understanding of yourself in a safe, confidential and supportive environment. This may include exploration of how you feel, think and act. Working at your own pace, I offer guidance and support so fresh ways of seeing yourself, the options and making choices become available. Alongside the issues you bring, we may look at where you would like to be in your life and what prevents you getting there, so far.
My Background In Counselling & Psychotherapy
My interest in therapy developed in 1982. A qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist, in my practice I bring together over twenty-five years experience of working with people at points of change in their lives, both in the voluntary sector and privately. Over this period I have valued listening to people’s life stories. I acknowledge and aspire to share what I have learnt from others.
I have completed 7 years training in psychosynthesis counselling and psychotherapy, drawn to it because it was described as a psychology of the soul.
Initial & Subsequent Meetings
I offer an initial meeting to get to know you, see if therapy is suitable, that we are a good fit and feel comfortable working together. I will summarise what I've picked up and feed this back to you. This is quite detailed usually lasting up to 90 minutes and the fee is the same fee for future sessions - I don't charge any extra for the first long meeting.
Thanks for all your help & support in what has been a difficult year for me. I really appreciate your work & time. I.N.

Before I went to see Mr.Gibson, I felt my life was going nowhere. I was so depressed. But after many sessions with Glen, I feel born again! I'm loving life for the first time in years and this wouldn't have been possible without Glen's help. R.G.
Your support and understanding among your productive state of mind, tips, your intellectual point of view , an accurate reflection (of myself)and analysis helped me to see things clear and easier. Your professional attitude are not just helpful but inspiring. Thank you M.A.
