My foundational training is an MSC from The Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute in Person Centred & Experiential Psychotherapy. This means that I work with you as the expert of your own life to help re-frame and process your experiences to promote better mental health, self awareness & wellbeing.
Alongside this, I offer where appropriate integration of psycho-education & psychological theory to help increase understanding of feelings and patterns of behaviour.
I am also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement & Desensitisation & Reprocessing) which I offer to clients I feel might benefit from this specific technique in addition to talking therapy.
Welcome to Gemma Pettit Psychotherapy & Consulting.
Each person has their own reason and motivation for entering therapy and they are all valid.
It feels important to say that you do not need to be in crisis to access support.
We all have mental health and a right to look after it.
Areas I work alongside clients with include: Abuse,
Adult children of Addicts,
Body Image & Disordered Eating,
Bereavement & Grief,
Sensory processing sensitivity (highly sensitive people),
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
