About me

Hello, my name is Gemma Mason. I am a psychotherapist, supervisor, psychological trainer and group facilitator. It is my aim to work with you through the changes you want to make in your life. Then you can live a fulfilled life rather than holding onto whatever has happened in your past.

People enter therapy for all sorts of reasons; they may have encountered a life crisis or want to make positive changes. They may wish to work short term or on a longer, more in-depth presenting issue.

It is my aim to help facilitate this process; to enable you to identify your strengths and celebrate your successes. You are in control of what you talk about.

It is my experience that within all of us are the answers we search for and the ability to change our lives for the better. I have worked with clients for almost twenty years and I enjoy working with individuals and groups.

I am able to offer the following formats of counselling;

  • Face-to-Face – I work from my practice in Trowbridge. Our introductory session would enable us to see if we could work together. Fees would be discussed during this first session and consessions are available depending on the

I am a qualified psychotherapist and registered with UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I have regular supervision to ensure that I work is both ethical and effective.

I am also able to offer supervision for therapists, professionals who work in the health services and organisations.

About Me

Prior to practicing as a therapist I worked as an occupational therapist within the National Health Service. I specialised in working with mental health issues.

As a therapist I describe my approach as being integrative drawing on a range of approaches including Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, Cognititive Behaviour Therapy and Person Centred theories of counselling and psychotherapy.

Although I work with a variety of presenting issues I have a special interest in working with the following; living with disability, the emotional impact of caring, emotional relationships with over and under eating.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
