Gerda Rocks - Counselling and Psychotherapy
'Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise'.
We can all experience times in our life when we feel stuck, frustrated, challenged or distressed. I aim to provide a welcoming, calm and non-judgemental space where you can work through current and past issues, where you can develop an awareness and understanding of yourself and your life choices helping you to feel more at ease in your world.
I offer one-to-one counselling, telephone counselling and video counselling via Zoom.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified and experienced integrative counsellor with training in psychodynamic and person centred approaches. My core psychodynamic training enables me to help you look sensitively at how past experiences may be unconsciously impacting your current life and behaviours.
My practice encompasses help with a range of psychological difficulties, from the demands and constraints of daily life to deep, complex emotional issues often experienced in the shadow of family crisis. I have extensive experience working with childhood and relational trauma, grief and loss, eating disorders and mood disorders.
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).
