Hello. My name is Gemma Davies and I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist.
I work from Harley Street, Central London and Richmond and Twickenham in West London, offering a safe, confidential space for you to work through any difficulties that you may currently be experiencing.
My Integrative stance means that our work can benefit from the skills and techniques of solution focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy; the deep, relational dimension of Person Centred Therapy; and the insight offered by past experiences which is implicit in Psychodynamic work.
Above all, I prize the development of a strong, very human bond to encourage deep trust, inspire confidence in the therapeutic process and build on sometimes unacknowledged and suppressed strengths. We will tailor your custom fit approach together.
Areas of Special Interest
I am drawn to working with the anxiety (from workplace stress to PTSD). Latterly, this has extended to working with stress related to the socioeconomic and political challenges of current affairs.
I feel I have particular skill working with relationship issues and can offer Couple Counselling where necessary.
I also feel privileged to work with building self-esteem in the younger adult or the career changer and enjoy supporting on-going personal development as people encounter life stage and life altering challenges which can often trigger depressive episodes.
How Therapy Can Be Delivered
Whilst I have a preference for working face to face, particularly during the assessment stage, I am happy to discuss working via Skype or telephone. In cases where we agree some behavioural experimentation or grounding therapy is considered appropriate, work outside the therapy room can be arranged.
Fees are negotiated on an individual basis.
