About me

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.

Member organisations

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.
