About

I'm Gemma. I'm a clinical psychologist with a passion for working with families and wider systems around people. I have a passion for working with couples, and parents who are struggling with the behaviour of their children, particularly aggression or other risky behaviours. I also work with couples who are experiencing significant levels of conflict and harmful or abusive behaviour. Sometimes, my work is with parents who have separated and are trying to work out how to reduce the impact of this separation on their children, or repair or reconstruct relationships that have become strained or distant.
I use a mixture of models to work with couples, parents and families, particularly emotionally focused therapy techniques (EFT) with couples and non-violent resistance (NVR), which is a brilliant approach to reducing conflict and aggression in families. I also offer video interaction guidance (VIG) to help to increase nurturing aspects of relationships.
I also work with other team members of Altogether Human CIC, so there are options in terms of who you might work with if you do reach out to us. If you have been wondering what life would be like if you could resolve a relationship issue that you've been struggling with, get in touch. We would be happy to have a brief consultation to see if we can help.

Altogether Human CIC - Dr Gemma Parker's Groups

Parenting children who experience anxiety

This is a group based on the SPACE model - supportive parenting for anxious childhood emotions. We are planning to start a new group in September but you can be added to the waiting list now if you would like details nearer the time. It is a great group for parents who would like to learn more about supporting their children to overcome anxious experiences and develop resilience.

More about this group

Parenting children who can be aggressive

This group is based on Non-Violent Resistance principles. NVR is an empowering model for parents of children who are expressing their distress through aggression and controlling behaviour. The group setting also has a very supportive element which parents find helpful and grounding. We are planning a new group in September, but you can be added to the waiting list now if you would like more details nearer the time.
