Gemma Slobom. Bsc (Psych), DPS (Counselling), MBACP.
I am an intergrative counsellor working from an easily accessible counselling practice in Cheltenham
Whether you are feeling low, anxious or are facing a life crisis, counselling may help you as you navigate a difficult time. My work is mostly collaborative as we look at identifying aims for your therapy. As an integrative therapist, I draw on a number of approaches to counselling which are then tailored to suit your individual needs.
The pace and depth of the work that we do will always be led by you so that the work that we do together feels as safe as possible, this also applies to the length of the therapy. For some people a few sessions may be enough to refocus, for others open ended counselling may be more appropriate.

Prior to, and throughout my therapeutic training I have worked in the charity sector, supporting people with dementia and carers of people with a wide range of disabilities or health issues. My working history and understanding of these fields has left me with a passion to support people who may be affected by these issues.
As part of my training I became a volunteer counsellor with two charities, and I have specific experience with regard to counselling people who are affected by dementia, or those who are caring for someone with a long term health condition.
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Carer support
- Child related issues
- Generalised anxiety disorder
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem

My counselling training has taken place over a number of years, and has always been fuelled by a passion for learning about others experiences. I understand that making the first step towards counselling can be a hugely daunting prospect, so if you have any questions about the counselling process or my practice, then I would encourage you to contact me, without obligation, so that we can discuss them further.
