Hi, I'm Jemma, an integrative therapist working with adults and young adults. Specialising in LGBTQIA+, childhood trauma, psychosis and personality disorders.
I work using various therapeutic models cognitive behavioural therapy, person centred, psychodynamic, art, and cognitive analytic therapies which enables me to understand your needs making sure that each session is tailored to you and focuses on your journey.
Everyone experiences struggles in life, these could be trauma based or feeling mentally or emotionally exhausted. Sometimes those hard times flow into our every day life and stop us from being able to be happy, or think clearly or feel unable to cope in a way we would like, working remotely means therapy is flexible and can be done from your home, office, even your car. We will work together to process and heal enabling a move forward. In our sessions you will be met with empathy, understanding and non-judgement.
Please contact me to book a session or to ask any questions you may have.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an integrative therapist educated to a level 7 academic qualification, holding a first class (hons) degree in counselling and a postgraduate diploma in psychosis from Kings College London.
I have an extensive education in complex mental health concerns including schizophrenia, bi-polar and trauma based illness, as well as working with extreme trauma both adult and child, grief, abuse and complex mental health concerns.
Having worked with clients from all walks of life, cultures and religions, I have lots of experience working within the LGBT and non-monogamous communities, this includes working with couples.

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.
