Gemma Brown Counsellor / Psychotherapist PGDip RegMBACP
Hello, my name is Gemma. I offer counselling/psychotherapy to women and men from age 16. I provide a non-judgmental and safe environment where you can speak honestly about aspects of your life which may be troubling you.
If you wonder why things seem more difficult for you than for others, 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 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.
I offer appointments on an individual basis only - short or long term.
Please email or call to make an inquiry.
