Psychotherapist in Brighton and London

My name is Greg Donaldson and I work as a Psychotherapist in Brighton and London. My private practice in both areas encompasses individual counselling & psychotherapy services, therapy with couples and trainee counsellors. My approach is integrative with a transpersonal perspective. I also offer remote skype sessions to clients who live throughout the UK and abroad.

Sometimes we can lose our purpose in life and we start to wonder what it’s all about.

I believe that we all have an ’emerging purpose’ even if we are not aware of it.

I work with individuals providing short & long term psychotherapeutic counselling. Talking in a safe and confidential space can help us find perspective and clarity, enabling us to step fully into our own lives.

Over the last 20 years I have worked as an actor and enjoy working with creatives of all kinds. Over the past 12 years I’ve worked closely with the NHS , training healthcare professionals in communication skills, enabling them handle complex and challenging issues.

“Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult – once we truly understand and accept it – then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters.”

I offer counselling in London and Brighton offering weekly 50 minute sessions.

I have full public liability insurance and am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). I also attend regular supervision and keep up to date with regular CPD (Continuing professional development)


First Steps

Our first counselling session is an opportunity for us to meet and get to know each other. It will be a space for you to ask any questions you may have about me or the counselling process and to talk about what brings you to counselling. At the end of this session we should have a good idea as to whether we want to work together and continue with further sessions, although you may want to think it over for a few days.

First Counselling Session

Once the decision is made to continue we will establish a ‘contract’ that we both feel comfortable with. This will make clear the confidential nature of the sessions, the cancellation policy and establish our commitment to working together in regular weekly sessions. For example we may initially contract to meet for 6 weeks, to see how that works out. This may be a sufficient number of sessions or you may then decide to continue open-endedly.

In all cases the sessions are best conducted on a consistent weekly basis to gain the most out of the work together. I have a 7 day cancellation policy although I will always try and be flexible and offer an alternative time and day If I can. If the session is cancelled within this time the full session fee may be liable.

My fees are flexible and based on location and time of day.

Individuals – £50 – £70

Couples £70 – £90

I do also offer concessionary rates when available

Once we have met face to face there is also a possibility of working together via Skype sessions or telephone counselling.

Please call me on 07971 279 449 if you would like a free 15 minute phone call to answer any questions you may have. Please leave a message and I will endeavour to get back to you within 24 hours.


I offer Psychotherapy in comfortable, private counselling rooms in Brighton and London.

After an initial consultation I am also able to offer Skype or telephone sessions at an agreed time each week. I would suggest if possible that at least one session per month would be face to face but this is sometimes not possible with clients that live abroad.
