Hello, I'm Gemma (and this is my guinea pig Lucy for added cute!) Thanks for clicking on my profile. Counselling may be useful to you if you are experiencing some emotional upset or change. Maybe you are going through an immediate crisis, or have a sense of something not being quite right which is beginning to affect your day to day life. Together we can explore what's happening for you right now, consider how the past may be impacting your current reality and then start to imagine how you want your future to look.

You might be longing to feel more connected and more at peace with yourself and in your body, but you don't really know where to start. It can feel scary and difficult to find a professional you can trust and open up with. I believe that giving yourself permission to reach out to someone is an important step, and I am here to guide you on your onward journey.

I am committed to build with you an attitude of resilience, emotional responsibility, hope and personal growth. As trained in CBT, I incorporate in my approach not only the therapeutic means but the principles of the positive psychology as well. You will be equipped with new coping skills, self-help tools and productive mental stamina. You will be strongly encouraged to re-evaluate your experience with your problem and see it as challenging but not overwhelming. You will be able to strengthen your personality as well as finding personal meaning and a fulfilling happy life.

Having the right fit (“therapeutic alliance”) with your psychologist is viewed as the most crucial factor in the healing process. I would encourage you to choose a practitioner with a broad life experience as well as a clinical training in a range of evidence-based psychological therapies. A former lawyer, I practised human rights & social justice law for years in the courts in the UK. This led to my interest in psychology & trauma & therapies to overcome psychological difficulties. I’ve lived in Canada, France, Italy & Scotland and have travelled all over the world, so I hope to have a background which may help you.

As a CBT therapist I am passionate about how the therapeutic alliance can help a client to explore their feelings about the difficulties they are experiencing in life. I believe that by providing a safe, calm and relaxing space, talk therapy can play a vital role in improving a client's mental health. Together, I work with my clients to identify how problems manifest themselves, put these findings into perspective by guiding them through a process working towards setting new goals, adopting new coping strategies and providing them with the relevant tools to continue to work on improving their mental health.

Here is a safe place where you can bring what’s on your mind and together we can make sense of it to find a clearer way forward. Sometimes troubles can feel too stuck or confusing to find words for. In sessions with me, along with words, we can use art materials, or any to hand objects, like a pencil, a piece of paper or string to express what is happening for you. This can give a cathartic sense of difficulties as if lifted from you and shared. Working together in this way can support new ways of thinking and improve relationships through increased self-awareness and emotional mastery.

In the busy pace of today's world, it can be difficult to find the time to sit with our thoughts and feelings. It can also be challenging to lay them out before someone else or to speak from the heart without fear of judgement.

It can get overwhelming sometimes or you maybe just want to understand better what is going on. Maybe you are experiencing stress or depressive feelings, maybe you just don’t feel being yourself lately. Maybe it seems as there is no one who listens or is just too hard to share. Maybe you might feel lost or reached a point in life where direction feels very blurry or non-existent. Maybe something significant has changed, you moved, lost someone, are on a crossroad and suddenly it feels harder even much harder then ever before. I am offering compassionate space to express your thoughts, emotions and where you can feel really heard.
