Gina Bryant MBACP
COVID-19: During these unprecedented times, I am providing my clients with counselling by telephone or by video call.
I offer one-to-one counselling in a confidential, therapeutic space to help you to navigate the emotional challenges you may be facing, to support your mental health and wellbeing. I work with adults of all ages, teenagers and young people age 11+.
Counselling can help with many of the distressing and painful situations we may encounter in life, from traumatic events and experiences, bereavement, loss and change, the stress of student life, to panic disorder, depression and overwhelming anxiety.
I am trained in the Person-centred Approach and this means that you, the client, set the direction of the therapy. I do not judge or label. I provide the therapeutic space and ethical, bespoke counselling that is empathic and non-judgemental, so that you can move forward to a more positive way of being.
I am experienced in working alongside clients in bereavement, facing loss and change and I offer support to clients dealing with traumatic events, life transitions and overwhelming emotions. Student life can be challenging and I am experienced in supporting young people with the stress and anxiety of exams, relationships, school life and social media, working in partnership to help explore strategies to help find a way forward that works for you.
I am a founding member of The Berkhamsted Counselling Practice and I volunteer as a Counsellor at The Hospice of St Francis, supporting clients in bereavement and pre-bereavement.

Our therapeutic work together will be either open-ended or short-term depending on your need. Our initial session will allow us to discuss your goals and ensure that my approach will be the best one for you.

Walking talking therapy
We are blessed in Berkhamsted to be a stone's throw from the beautiful beeches and grassy meadows of the Ashridge Estate. It makes complete sense to me to combine harnessing the healing properties of nature with the therapeutic benefits of talking and so I’m delighted to be able to offer you the opportunity to have walking, talking therapy sessions.
As with sessions in conducted in the therapy room, each session will last for 50 minutes.
We will meet at an agreed, safe location, that will offer us the levels of confidentiality we require for effective therapy while giving us the chance to work together in an outdoor setting, to explore and breathe, away from the hustle of everyday life.
