Hello, my name is Gemma. I offer counselling/psychotherapy for adults (18+) All genders, identities and backgrounds welcome. I provide a non-judgmental and safe environment where you can speak honestly about aspects of your life which may be troubling you.
In theses troubling strange times I am offereing counselling sesions via the online Zoom platform. Please contact me for further details.
Like many of us you may be battling feelings of anxiety, worry and stress right now. Accessing some counselling support can help you to combat these feelings and manage better.
Perhaps you wonder why things seem more difficult for you than for others? Perhaps you feel sad and don't really know why? Perhaps you have questions about why you feel a certain way or are struggling with an aspect of life? I can offer you the space and support to figure out the answers and change how you feel, change how you lead your life. This may mean taking time to think about the relationship between your current feelings / thoughts and any significant past events.
As a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) you can be assured that I have successfully completed professional accredited training and that I am committed to the BACP Code of ethics ensuring confidentiality and a professional service.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
