Gareth Fowler

Counsellor & Supervisor

Gareth is a BACP registered and accredited counsellor and supervisor who works relationally with children and young people, as well as adults. He originally trained at Leeds Beckett University.

At the heart of his work is the therapeutic relationship created in collaboration with each individual client. He aims to create the right emotional environment for clients to explore their concerns, adapting his approach and pace to the needs of the person he is working with, by offering a safe, supportive, calm, and non-judgmental space where clients can feel truly understood.

Gareth carries his relational approach to counselling through to his supervision work. For Gareth, supervision is very much about creating the right environment to help his supervisees to grow and develop as competent, confident, creative and ethical practitioners.
