Life is a challenge, at times we are woken up to the impact of emotional and psychological stress on our personal and professional lives which can suddenly hit us or, creep upon us in the cold light of day. I can help you to explore and take action to cope with those feelings of anxiety, depression, anger, stress and self-esteem. My experience with parenting issues, bullying or childhood sexual abuse recognises the challenges this presents to live authentically and experience genuine relationships lifting the cloud of despair. Together we can explore, identify goals to transform and help you live your life more successfully.

Thanks for looking at my profile. I am a highly experienced counsellor, seeing individuals, couples and teenagers. What makes someone choose a counsellor, because it seems we all pretty much offer the same therapies. Is it the warm photograph to promote ourselves or the letters after our name. At this point most people have stopped reading, but if you continue you may see how I can help you.

You may be finding life difficult or painful. This may be due to a relationship problem or something that you experienced in the past. You may feel you can barely cope with the demands and responsibilities of life. You may be suffering from low mood or a general sense of dissatisfaction. You may feel a sense of bereavement or loss. Perhaps you are aware of being angry a lot of the time. You could have noticed patterns of behaviour in your life and you wonder why. You may feel you have issues connected with spirituality or religion. These feelings and thoughts can be explored in the safety and containment of counselling.

Hi there, my name is Gemma. I support people to look after their future selves. Living with physical health issues or a long term condition (i.e. being a human being) is frustrating and overwhelming at times. Managing symptoms, changes to lifestyle, diet or medication can impact on our mood, motivation, sleep and relationships, and self-care can feel impossible on top of other existing challenges in life. I support people to relate differently to these challenges. By learning to step back and make space for some discomfort in life, we can allow more time and energy for the things that matter most in life (our values).

Do you need space and time to talk? If so, I am here to offer you the time and space to explore your worries and concerns in a confidential and safe environment. In a busy world full of judgements and rules, I can offer you a space where your thoughts and worries will be heard, acknowledged and respected. I can provide you with a place where you will not feel judged and where you can feel free to express your deepest concerns. I can appreciate that making the first step can be incredibly challenging.

You may have experienced trauma in its many different forms and intensities, or experience anxiety or other stress related illness. You may find yourself stuck in life, either unable to make that breakthrough to move on - new job, new relationship etc. - or may want to improve your personal performance in some way. You are open to the fact that solutions ultimately come from within and that therapy involves facilitation by the therapist to enable self-discovery. You are comfortable receiving therapy online via video conferencing such as MS Teams, Zoom or Google Meet.

I am a qualified Counsellor and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). My theoretical approach is integrative and relational. This means that I draw on a range of therapeutic approaches to find what is most helpful for each client. It also means I am particularly interested in how a client relates to themselves and to others, including how we experience each other. By exploring this together in a safe and confidential environment, I hope we will be able to play with new ways of being which support the possibility for change and growth.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Purley?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Purley specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
