Gemma Midgley


You may be looking for support with a specific area of your life or perhaps it is something more general, something that is hard to name. I can offer you a space in which you can explore and make sense of what is going on for you. I will not offer you advice or try and give you answers to a problem, I believe that you can do that yourself you have the right support. When working together in a therapeutic relationship based on authentic communication, respect, and empathy you open the possibility to finding your unique path to increased self-awareness and personal growth.

The importance of a strong therapeutic relationship between client and therapist is well supported in research. However, I appreciate that choosing your counsellor can be daunting. To help you make your decision I offer a free 20-minute consultation, this gives you the chance to ask any questions and provides you with an opportunity to see if I am the right counsellor for you.

I work using an integrative model, which means that I draw on multiple theoretical approaches whilst holding the relationship at the centre of all that we do. I will ask questions and aim to remain curious to you and your experiences. Sessions are led by you, and we move at your pace. I will challenge you at times and this is an important part of the work. However, I aim to do this with compassion and respect.
If you would like a consultation, then please do get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you.


I have experience of working with patients, carers, and bereaved relatives at a local hospice. I offer a space in which people can explore their experiences without judgement or risk of burdening. I support clients in finding their way of living with their loss.

As a member of the BACP I adhere to the ethical guidelines that they outline. I attend regular supervision sessions where I gain guidance and support in my work from a registered supervisor. I am committed to continual profession development through attending training workshops, talks and ensuring that I am aware of current research.
