Please note, I don't share this rating lightly.
However, my experience of working with Gary has been both constructive & a pleasure, making this decision straight forward.
Gary is an honest and approachable counsellor, with comprehensive skills that most people will benefit from.
Quite simply, I recommend Gary without any reservations.

Relationship and Marriage Counselling

I began working with Gary a few months ago after the breakdown of a relationship. He has great insight which has been invaluable in helping me navigate my way through a very difficult time. His expert counselling and coaching has allowed me not only to heal emotionally but also to grow in confidence in many other areas of my life. The sessions were conducted via zoom, which meant they were convenient and comfortable.
I'd highly recommend speaking to Gary if you're struggling with relationship issues, or if you are in need of some direction in life.

Working with Gary has been really easy. Really puts you at ease. I have felt confident in him to be able to really open up and work on some really difficult issues. He is companionate but also moves you forward. He sets home work which really helps. If you do not manage to complete all of it he does not make you feel under pressure. I would definitely recommend him and would use him again in the future if need be. More...

I see Gary as a life saver. He has really transformed who I am for the better and I couldn’t be more thankful. Gary is always smiling and always leaves our sessions on a positive. He has gone above and beyond what my expectations were for a counsellor and it really shows that Gary truly cares for what he does. I think he is an exceptional person and I truly value everything he says. I have nothing but amazing things to say. More...

My husband and I had disconnected and we needed the tools and a safe space to be honest about how we feel. Speaking with Gary was the best thing we could do for our marriage . Gary is so calm , friendly and asks the right questions that helps you to truly dig deep into your feelings . My husband and I can see the changes in how we communicate and we are finally able to put the past in the past and focus on the future . I highly recommend Gary to anyone . If anything happens to occur again , Gary will be our first choice .
Thank you so much

Gary has been amazing to say the least. He has, in a short space of time really helped me. Gary has always been professional, on time and never missed an opportunity to engage with me, even allowing for last minute requests of mine. Thank you Gary.

Highly recomended for couples counseling - helped talk through and identify root issues. As well as what is important to us both.

I was a little sceptical at first as I’ve had few counsellors via the NHS that I did not find helpful at all. I’m so happy I took the leap to reach out to Gary. He is a great listener, very understanding, patient and does not rush you at all. I’ve had 4 sessions so far, and I feel 100% safe to speak to him about anything I need to address. For the first time in my life, I finally feel like I’m getting somewhere. I have had so many realisations after each call and my partner has also noticed a big change in me already. I feel really positive about the process. Thank you so much for everything so far. More...

We have been struggling with our marriage for a long time, when we joined bark and seek couple counselling from Gary Napier, our relationship gets better and better, we have less arguments, even less anger towards each other, He's a amazing counselor, he actually listens to what we have to say, and then guide us accordingly, we have done many excersics with him that has helped us in understanding our relationship so much better and to move forward.
I highly recommend him, in only few sessions you'll see the difference yourself.

Gary is likeable, relatable and someone I felt comfortable opening up too.

21 January 2021

I had known for a very long time that the vast majority of my problems in life stemmed from my anger and resentment. Gary has helped me to see the internal mechanics of how my anger has controlled me, and how to find other ways of dealing with my stronger emotions. He has also worked with my wife and I collectively on our relationship, with impartiality and poise. He has a warm and endearing manner that truly make you feel comfortable to be both strong and vulnerable. I can’t recommend Gary highly enough. He has genuinely had a huge impact on my life. More...

If you are like me, and have spent a long time contemplating counselling and anxiously looking into who you can trust, then I can confidently say look no more. From the very first welcoming call Gary has been a great support to me offering excellent guidance. I have overcome so much since working with him and every session I leave feeling lighter and empowered. I have recommended Gary to many people, many of whom are now using his services. Thank you Gary for your continued kindness and support, you are a real treasure! ... and to you the reader, be brave, take the plunge. More...

Relationship and Marriage Counselling

One of the greatest decisions I have ever made was to contact Gary.
Every session I felt heard, I felt like I mattered and Gary has gifted me with the strength, determination and courage to continue on my journey. I have never felt so vulnerable but safe at the same. I was able to talk freely and honestly without fear of judgement. I have learnt some very invaluable life skills and I would forever recommend Gary to everyone.
Thank you for everything!

Counselling

I found Gary on Bark. We were looking for someone to guide us through some difficulties my partner and I were having with responses to conflicts within our blended family. We had gotten to a point where situations were quite often escalated into heated arguements & we wanted help to deal with these circumstances in a more positive way.
Gary called me within an hour of filling in my details we chatted for over 30 minutes. I can say without any doubt he was the perfect choice. He put together a program with weekly sessions for myself and my partner, there was no pressure, He listened and made recommendations. Mediated when needed ! We completed weekly tasks. We have enjoyed working with Gary and we have made great progress in getting to where we want to be with the tools that he has provided. I cannot recommend Gary enough, he has probably saved our relationship.

Gary was a brilliant councillor. Me and my partner had relationship councilling and not only has he helped our relationship, he also helped with our individual issues. He was quick to recognise what we needed to work on and had numerous tips and techniques for us. He created a really comfortable atmosphere where we could talk without judgment and we’ve been able to take his help and advice into our day to day lives, which is having a really positive effect on our relationship. I’d highly recommend him to anybody. More...

Gary has been fantastic these last few weeks. He has helped me gain clarity of issues I have dealt with my whole life and was able to really hone into things I need to address. Every week he listens with great empathy and with no judgement. I feel brave enough and comfortable enough to discuss some of my deepest truths which have not been discussed with any other professional. Thank you for your guidance and your kindness. More...

Q&As

My passion is to come alongside side people, and to help them overcome their 'difficulty', so they may have a 'hope' and a 'purpose' for their life. I consider the opportunity to journey with people from their place of 'pain', to being 'healed', to be a real privilege.

The desire to start my own business was caused by my personal observations, that there is a growing need for people from differing backgrounds, especially men, to have a 'safe space' to talk. I myself benefited immensely from receiving counselling, which inspired my passion and commitment to help others.

At all times, I aim to show a genuine warmth and empathetic attitude towards my clients. It has often been said that my 'non-judgemental' nature has enabled clients to feel immediately at ease during therapy. Therefore, my intention is to create an environment that gives you the freedom to share openly, without any fear of feeling judged, criticised or ashamed.
