About me and my therapy practice
Hello and welcome to my profile. My name is Jemma and I am an experienced psychotherapist and relationship therapist working with individuals, couples, and families.
Psychotherapy can be a life-changing experience. People start therapy for many different reasons. You may feel dissatisfied or distressed, want to explore the past, process difficult life events, achieve new goals or just learn more about yourself.
To facilitate self-awareness, I place particular attention in developing a trusting, safe and collaborative relationship. In this supportive environment with trust, we will work as a team to develop a shared understanding of your difficulties and identify how these difficulties affect your thoughts, beliefs, behaviours, feelings and daily functioning.
I ensure my approach is unique for each client, as my style of practice is Integrative. This means I draw from different psychological modalities, including psychodynamic, existential, and creatively incorporate the transpersonal use of visualisations and dream work.
Ultimately, my main focus is you, and for this reason I tailor the type of therapy to the individuals’ needs and presenting issues.
Whilst not limited to, below are my specialist areas:
- Women who feel under pressure to start a family
- People in the Jewish community
- Societal pressures
- Trauma and complicated family dynamics
- Helping clients establish a stronger sense of self, while working on lack of confidence and low self esteem
- Addressing communication issues with couples and families
- Restoring connection and harmony with individuals, couples, and families
I offer face to face sessions, as well as offering sessions online via Zoom.
I look forward to working with you.
My first session
At our first meeting, which will be your initial online session, is generally referred to as the 'Assessment'.
During the assessment we will be able to jointly decide whether we want to work together. I will ask you a number of questions some of which may seem very personal.
The more honest and open you are the greater the eventual benefit is likely to be for you. There will also be practical questions, such as details about your family, your past and the expected length of therapy.
You will be encouraged to ask questions, so it may be a good idea to think carefully about them, perhaps writing them down so that they may be fully dealt with.
Subsequent sessions will be weekly. Those sessions will generally be on the same day and at the same time each week.
If we decide it is a good fit for us to work together, I will email over my contract where more specific details are written around the framework of us working together.
