Counselling At Stockbridge Pharmacy (Gemma Matthews PGDip)
Counselling may be useful to you if you are experiencing some emotional upset or change. Maybe you are going through an immediate crisis, or have a sense of something not being right which is beginning to affect your day to day life.
At Stockbridge Pharmacy I aim to provide a safe and confidential space for individuals over the age of 18 to talk through and explore their problems or concerns.
Counselling can help with a wide range of issues including;
- Bereavement and loss
- Difficulties within relationships (family, social, intimate)
- Self-confidence and esteem
- Depression and anxiety
- Eating disorders
- Chronic illness or recent diagnosis
- Stress or work-related problems
- Spiritual and existential issues.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Person Centred Counselling and am a registered member of the BACP – working towards accreditation.
My approach draws upon the work and theories of Carl Rogers and the Person-Centred Model. This is essentially a firm belief in you, the client, being the expert on your own life. My role as a counsellor is to be a compassionate and attentive partner, helping you explore your inner world, address problems and find solutions. I aim to provide a warm and accepting space where you can feel safe and supported in looking at the difficulties troubling you.
I attend regular individual supervision, am committed to continuing my own learning and growth and participate in monthly group supervision.
I have volunteered within one of Edinburgh's most established counselling charities for the last four years. This is something that continues to enrich and expand my practice and I am highly committed to it.
