Gregg Palmer MA, PG Dip, BSc Hons, UKCP, MBACP, Counsellor and Psychotherapist in SE1

I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist with an extensive knowledge of working with adults undergoing stress, trauma and crises.

I work within minutes of London Bridge Station and the City of London.new web photo

I specialise in working with deep trauma and am skilled at tolerating difficult states, such as profound despair, that, for example, intense self hatred can lead us to. When we lose our own value and meaning in life we can spiral into a black hole. Having a skilled ‘other’ with us in those times, that knows such landscape well, can make a world of difference.

That said, there is no problem that is too small, as everything is relative. Many people feel their suffering is not deserving enough of counselling. This is one of the greatest myths of all.

I have special expertise with the following but if your issue is not listed below please contact me to discuss if I can help:

Addiction / Anger Management / Relationship Issues / Work Related Issues / Acute Stress and/or Anxiety / Sexuality and Sexual Issues / Identity Issues / Bereavement and Loss / Depression / Spirituality And Meditation / Lack Of Confidence / Manic Depression / Bipolar Disorder / Generalised Anxiety Disorder / Identity Crisis / Spiritual Crises / Low Self-Esteem / Panic Attacks / Suicidal Feelings / Self-Harm / Feelings Of Terror

Qualifications

I hold a BSc Degree in Psychology, a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling (PGDip), and a Masters in Psychotherapy (MA), the latter two being validated by the University of East London and accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherpay (BACP).

Training

I trained at the Psychosynthesis & Education Trust and am a member of the BACP (MBACP) and am accredited with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). The latter two professional bodies employ a strict code of ethics to ensure the highest standards of practice.

My psychosynthesis training was integrative (drawing from all schools of psychology) and I have a tendency toward depth oriented psychotherapy.

Other Work

In addition to my private practice I am Clinical Director of a counselling placement service allowing me to work within a multi-disciplinary team over a range of approaches.

I also periodically assist in training at the Psychosynthesis and Education Trust which runs high quality training programmes for counsellors and psychotherapists.

  1. If you are viewing this page and considering undertaking some counselling I would highly recommend Gregg Palmer and Mouna to you. Gregg has a gift for empathy and has overcome many challenges in his own life that help him to understand what others are going through. He provides a safe space in which difficult emotions can be experienced and processed, leading to a greater sense of confidence and the ability to cope better with the world and all its challenges.

  2. Having entered into therapy on two other occasions in my life I reached a stage where I felt the time had come again to take a deeper look at myself. At my first session I felt sad, low and at a loss with how to move forward. Anger, self hatred and fear followed but each week Gregg provided a safe and trusting space and helped me to explore so much about myself and the relationships I have had with others. The most profound change has happened through the relationship Gregg is helping me to find with myself so stop here and don’t look any further!
