1h 43m Les Garry obituary
The Guardian
My wife, Les Garry, who has died aged 70, was a counsellor and psychotherapist. Recognised as an outstanding practitioner by her peers, she was a senior accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, and a supervisor for many other therapists. She helped a great number of people in profound ways, as well as supporting colleagues with her depth of care and experience. Les had a strong commitment to a person-centred approach and was convinced of people’s ability to know what is right for themselves and to find their own answers if the right conditions are made available to them. In her counselling room overlooking her beloved garden at home, with its magnolia and copper beech trees, she offered a haven in which people received her full and loving attention. She worked with many women who had experienced domestic violence or sexual abuse.
