Talk Through It.  Solution-focused Therapy

Welcome to Talk Through It. My name is Gerry Spatharis, I am a Solution-focused therapist and a Primary Mental Health Worker for the local Council. I have over 28 years of experience working with children, teenagers and adults who are experiencing stress, worry or anxiety. I see people from all walks of life and all ages with - no issue is too small. 


I provide in-person and online sessions - all bookable on the Bookings and Locations page, without needing to pay at the time of booking. Take a look through the website and read about Solution-focused therapy (how it differs from Counselling and CBT) and how it can help. It gets great results and is very different from what you may have previously experienced. There's also a section on Further Reading which provides useful resources and websites. Below you will find information about the type of appointments I offer and a general summary of what I can help with, but If I can't help you, I will usually know a person who can!




  • In-person appointments - at the Fairbourne Clinic, Wendan Road, Newbury, West Berkshire.
  • Remote appointments - Online through Teleheath (secure)
  • Mental health support for local companies or schools  -  to ensure that their employees/students have mental health support in-house. (Please contact me for packages to suit.) 


Book Yourself In!

You can select your own date and time to see me on the booking system. Any questions about booking, just email. If you can't see availability, let me know which days and times you were looking for and I will let you know whether or not I can accommodate your request.

I have a lot of experience working with children who have Autism and ADHD and for those who want to know more about these, please see the 'Further Reading' section for books that might be of interest. I often work with people who have FND or PANDAS. Please contact me for more information if you would like to chat about this.  I am always happy to help, where I can.

Not Sure?

Solution-Focused Therapy is incredibly effective, but there's no sense in me telling you this - come and give it a try. It gets really good results. Nothing is lost if you decide it isn't for you, but something might be gained if it is.

If you would like to book a session, please go to 'Bookings, Location and Prices.'   Payment at time of booking is not required. I look forward to seeing you soon!
