About me and my therapy practice

I’m Gemma Kelly. I specialise in Psychodynamic Child & Adolescent Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am registered with and accredited by the BACP. I am also a member of the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP). I currently work in CAMHS (NHS) alongside my private work and have experience of working in schools and inpatient units. I work predominantly on an individual basis with children and adolescents aged 5-18, offering long and short-term work and CBT. 

I understand it can be extremely worrying for a parent to see a child suffering with mental health difficulties and they can often feel helpless. Equally, adolescents seeking help for themselves can find it hard to take that first step; many worry that they will be judged for needing support. I offer a friendly, safe environment for children and adolescents to explore any issues that they may be experiencing; school, home, self-esteem, eating, self-harming, anxiety or depression for example. 

I work in a client led way. For younger children, work is done creatively through play/art as this is their main way of communicating.

I am trained in CBT, which can be used to treat different types of anxiety: Social, Separation, Generalised and OCD as well as Phobias (additional charge may apply for phobia work) and depression.

Your first session is a chance for us to get to know one another. I will offer a thorough assessment in this session with both you and your child and following this individual sessions of 50 minutes would start. I am happy to provide a report following the assessment, which you can share with your child's school or GP. 

Therapy is confidential but I offer regular reviews for parents to discuss progress. Any risks or safeguarding concerns are of course shared with parents straight away. 

I am committed to safeguarding children, undertake regular supervision and have an enhanced DBS check. 

I am based in Eton/Windsor. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
