Gemma Harrison ( Registered MBACP) TLC Counselling & Psychotherapy
3B High Street
Your feelings matter! Want to feel heard? I will listen...
We all need some emotional support from time to time, many of us find parts of our lives difficult and we cant always turn to family and friends to empower ourselves to overcome the challenges we face.
Counselling is an opportunity for you to understand yourself better.
Can't see the light at the end of the tunnel? You are not alone!
There are many reasons people seek counselling: anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, anger, loss, bereavement and relationship Issues, plus many other challenges that we face on a day to day basis. You may simply be feeling sad and are struggling to understand why. Counselling gives you the opportunity to explore and seek some clarity.
I offer an opportunity for you to lead a more productive, satisfying and fulfilling life.
Through being truly heard you can begin to understand how you really feel and what you need in order to manage and maintain control of your life.
Experiencing new self-awareness can empower you to make positive changes, whether your struggling with the here and now or past issues are holding you back, together we can explore any issues that are preventing you from fulfilling your needs.
It takes courage to embark on a journey of self-reflection.
During the process of counselling you will be in control of your sessions, it can feel painful and confusing at times and may feel uncomfortable and bring feelings of anger or sadness. I have no expectations of you to talk about anything that may feel too painful until the time is right for you.
I provide a strictly confidential, safe, non-judgemental, empathic space where you can feel truly heard and understood, allowing you the space and time to process your thoughts and feelings at a pace that feels right for you. Sessions are client led, lasting 50 minutes on a weekly basis with regular reviews to see how you feel progression is being made. An initial assessment will take place to establish your needs, giving me the opportunity to get some idea of how best I can help you and it gives you a chance to find out what I am like and to experience how counselling with me might feel for you.
I value my profession and your wellbeing is at the heart of what I do. My aim is to ensure a high level of trust is established to enable deep emotions to be explored. I believe that only you as an individual have the ability to decide what is best for you and by exploring your thoughts, feelings, emotions and experiences you can gain a better understanding of them, giving you the tools you need to make positive changes. I am here to help you facilitate that change and enable you to move forward on your journey.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I use a combined approach of Person-Centred and Psychodynamic therapy so that we can work together with the here and now and also with early life experiences, this combined approach can bring an understanding of how past experiences mould us into the people we become and look at why certain patterns of behaviour exist. With this knowledge and understanding you can begin to encourage new patterns, to enable a healthier, more manageable, happier future.
I am a registered member with the BACP and practise according to their code of professional ethics and practice.
I have professional Indemnity and Public liability insurance cover.

Thank you for taking the time to explore what I can provide.
I feel passionately about helping you strengthen your own ability to identify and implement solutions that are right for you so that you feel empowered, enabling you to draw on your inner resources resulting in you no longer needing me.
I have experienced how counselling can empower an individual to make positive changes to their life and I look forward to discussing how it can help you.
Feel free to contact me in whichever way feels most comfortable for you.
