Gemma Graham Counselling
Hello and welcome. I hope I can help you.
Are you going through a difficult time at the moment, and feel like you might need to speak to a counsellor? If so, please contact me via email or phone, and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about therapy. I offer brief counselling, which means we would agree on a set amount of sessions, and work within a goal focused framework, and I offer open ended counselling, for those of you that require a longer therapeutic process. Both forms of counselling are beneficial; the length of time you attend counselling is your choice.
I will provide you with a safe, confidential, non - judgemental space, so that you can work through whatever it is that is troubling you.
In my private practice, I have worked with various client issues, such as: addiction, divorce, childhood issues, abuse, relationship conflicts, rape and domestic violence.
Training, qualifications & experience
- Foundation Degree in Person - Centred Counselling, validated by Sunderland University.
- I now work successfully in private practice, providing counselling support to individuals.
- I have worked for a number of organisations in various roles. The most recent was for a women's charity, supporting women who have experienced domestic abuse/violence, childhood sexual abuse and incest.
- I have extensive knowledge on addiction issues, and recovery based solutions.
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).
