About Counselling

Gerry Douglas (Director of Brain Time Ltd) offers a counselling service for individuals, couples, family groups, and organisations.

Gerry’s holistic approach takes into account relevant history, and current day challenges and changes.

This means that in addition to carefully listening to your reason(s) for seeking counselling, Gerry will draw your attention to relevant physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual considerations.
