Talk Through It - Solution Focused Therapy

Welcome to Talk Through It. My name is Gerry Spatharis, I'm a Solution-focused therapist and also work part-time as a Primary Mental Health Worker for the local Council. 


It's great that you've found the website and are reading up on how I can be of help.  I find solution focused therapy invaluable for sorting through issues and hopefully you will feel the same. If you want to simply off-load or have more deep-seated issues, solution focused theapy can help with those.  I see all kinds of people from all sorts of backgrounds and with very different issues. No two people are the same and everyone has a path that is unique to them. Come and see me at the Fairbourne Clinic, Wendan Road, Newbury if you would like an in-person appointment. If you would prefer remote - these are available too.


Check out the 'What is solution focused therapy' tab for more info and if you find resources helpful, take a look at the 'Suggested Reading and Resources' section. You can also book your sessions without the need to email me - but if there are days or times that you can't see available, let me know and I will get back to you about whether this is 'do-able.'


I look forward to seeing you soon!


Below are some bullet points containing a few of the issues that people come to see me about. Please don't read the list of issues and worry that yours or your child's aren't 'extreme enough' to warrant being seen. It's all relative to who you are. Get in touch if you have any questions.

Not Sure?

Solution Focused Therapy is incredibly effective, but there's no sense in me telling you this - come and give it a try. Nothing is lost if you decide it isn't for you, but something might be gained if it is. Please feel free to email or phone if you have any questions.
