Supportive & Professional Humanistic Counselling

Hello, I'm Gemma

I am a Humanistic counsellor and member of the BACP working in accordance with their Ethical Framework.

I understand that there are times when life can feel overwhelming and daily life can become more of a struggle. This can often feel isolating and confusing, but it is important to know that you don’t have to go through it alone.

My aim is to provide a warm, welcoming and supportive environment in which you feel able to explore your feelings and emotions without fear of judgement.

I am able to help with many of life’s challenges and also have specialist experience of working with survivors of rape, sexual abuse and sexual violence. I understand that it can sometimes be difficult to talk about experiences that have be hidden for a long period of time. Therefore my focus is always on providing a safe, accepting space for you to explore these difficult experiences.

I understand the gravity and rippling affect violence and sexual abuse has on your whole life but also that there is hope, strength and empowerment that can be found within oneself with the help of counselling.

My approach is sensitive and supportive placing emphasis on building a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship. Always working at a pace that is led by you.
