Gemma Gatward provides a non-judgemental, empathic space where clients can open up and feel truly heard and understood for who they are. Counselling helps clients to process difficult or confusing thoughts and feelings in order to feel more balanced. Gemma is trained in Person Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy which means she believes that clients have the inner resources to heal themselves and works with clients to connect with those inner resources. She works with both young people and adults, and the basis of your work together will be to create a safe place, a strong relationship, and being able to trust in the process of exploring whatever it is that is troubling you.
With a background in working with looked-after young people, Gemma has experience working with trauma and understands the complexities of how this can affect young people and adults in later life. Gemma now works in a sales role alongside her counselling to give her life some balance and likes working with clients from all different backgrounds. Gemma has also worked with young clients (aged 11-25) with many different presenting issues, such as anxiety and depression.
Gemma has a Diploma of Higher Education in Person Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy and is currently working towards her BA Hons degree. She works within The Awareness Centre’s low cost counselling service in tooting and is a member of the BACP.
