Gemma Latimer | KINDLING Therapy
I am a professionally qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor and BACP member. I offer brief (6-12 weeks) and long-term therapy in Walthamstow to adults experiencing a variety of issues such as; anxiety, depression, stress and relationship issues.
I work creatively with clients, paying attention to what both mind and body are saying to support new awareness. I believe we all have innate potential inside us and sometimes need help finding and awakening that energy. As a warm, curious and authentic counsellor, I offer a safe, supportive and non judgemental space to explore and identify self-limiting beliefs, habits and help clients live their most satisfying version of themselves.
When clients contact me, they can expect to meet face-to-face for an initial 50-minute consultation, exploring what brings them to counselling and what they hope to get out of it. There will be time to answer any questions about the way I work or the process of counselling. After the initial assessment, I encourage clients to take some time to decide whether I'm the right counsellor for them. If we decide to work together, we would decide if brief or long-term is the best option for you. Clients usually find weekly sessions most helpful but other options are also possible.
Training, qualifications & experience
Training in Gestalt, means I work person to person, observing the present moment with curiosity. Unlike approaches which focus on the individual working through issues, the Gestalt approach encourages working together through your problems as a shared exploration.
My approach allows me to work fluidly with various issues, including; anxiety, depression, bereavement, low self-esteem, mood and confidence, trauma, anger issues, panic attacks, relationship difficulties, stress, creative block and lack of motivation. With a background in the arts I have a particular interest in working creatively and experientially with clients, bringing experiences to life in the here and now.
