Gemma Autumn, Integrative Counsellor (Cert. PgDip)
I (she/her) am a trained integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor, practising artist and energy worker. My training covered children, adolescent and adult treatments. This is important because so often when we are looking at our core wounds they are the conflicts of the inner child.
There are many different therapy approaches, but I believe healing occurs in the relationship between the client and the therapist, so when choosing a therapist, contact a few to see where it feels right for you.
My approach is integrative, which means I draw on many healing modalities depending on the needs of my client. I use talking therapy and creative interventions where they may lead to the release of emotional blocks or insight.
As an artist with a background in the corporate world, I can relate to those in the creative field and business. I work with those struggling with depression, attachment issues, abuse, emotional blocks, anxiety, family problems, insecurity, spiritual disconnection, psychedelic integration, grief, loss and low self-esteem.
Email me by clicking on the link above and I will get back to you to arrange an initial consultation. This is an opportunity for both to think about your difficulties and to decide whether short or longer term therapy is desirable and whether we can work together.
I practice online currently. Sessions are weekly and last 50 minutes. I offer open-ended therapy and time-limited therapy as I believe that the seeds of healing can be planted in the space of a few sessions.

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.

Concessions offered for
Each person is the expert on their own healing journey. My integrative approach takes the lead from clients on what they need as there is no one-therapy-fits-all method. This means that each session can be different depending on what comes up in the session.
As an integrative therapist I have various tools to draw from including including creative art therapy, NLP, drama therapy and talking therapy. As a therapist I am journeying with my clients. Given the right conditions, the body, mind and soul knows how to heal. The tree always grows towards the light.
