Mr. Chris Gwilliams MBACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist


MSc in Psychological Trauma

Thank you for visiting my website. I hope I can offer the help you are looking for.

I am a BACP accredited counsellor/psychotherapist. I work from a humanistic perspective of person-centred, where if the right conditions are present, an individual will learn and grow from the therapeutic experience.  

I provide a safe confidential environment of G.P. surgeries in Ellesmere and Telford plus I have premises in Shrewsbury to help you understand why life is difficult. In addition to my humanistic work I also use an eclectic approach of CBT, Psychodynamic, Psychoanalytical, and from Transactional Perspective when we both feel it is appropriate.

I believe every individual has the inner capacity to self-actualise and become more fully functioning within their world.

I am registered with a number private health care providers, including BUPA, AVIVA, CIGNA and WPA.

The cost is £30.00 for 50 minutes or £25.00 for teenagers and students. A free 20 minute consultancy session is offered to establish if I can meet your care needs.
