Jemma West Person-Centred Counsellor London E8Jemma West:

Person-Centred Counsellor (BACP)

Hello, my name is Jemma West, and I am a fully qualified Person-Centred counsellor offering therapy online.

Person-centred counselling puts you the client in the centre of the counselling session allowing you to be able to talk and explore what is going on for you.

I will provide you with a professional and confidential service, providing a safe, empathic, comfortable, warm friendly environment for you to talk about what is going on for you and the challenges you may be facing.

I believe being given time and space to talk about your feelings and emotions can have a positive effect on your everyday life.

Sometimes in life, we are faced with unexpected challenges and difficulties that are not always easy to talk about to our friends or family, this is where I can provide you with a safe non-judgemental space to talk about what it is going on for you.

Throughout our sessions together I will use the 3 core conditions, unconditional positive regard, congruence, and empathy to support your counselling journey.

I understand it may be difficult to ask for help but together we can build a non-judgemental Therapeutic relationship to achieve your desired outcomes.


What to expect from me?
Finding the right counsellor may feel overwhelming and not always easy, I offer a 20-minute taster session to introduce myself and we can have an initial chat about what brings you to counselling and what you would like to achieve.

This is time for us to discuss how the session will work and it gives you the opportunity to see whether counselling with me is something you would like to do. From there we can discuss availability and book your first session.


I have a Diploma in Person-Centred therapeutic counselling. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I Seek Therapy?

Many people, new to this type of help, believe that they need to be suffering from “mental illness” or serious “psychological problems”, or be in crisis in order for therapy and counselling to be appropriate for them. This is a common misconception; anyone can benefit from therapy when it comes to helping you deal with your personal feelings and problems, make positive changes in your life, and understand yourself better.

So what is therapy and counselling? If you’re new to this world then the first steps can sometimes be the most difficult. Therapy can be a very effective treatment for a whole range of personal problems covering areas from physical and emotional problems, different types of behavioural disorders, through to human sexuality issues and a host of wellbeing and complementary therapy techniques.

Any problem you have that is causing you concern, anxiety or distress is a valid and appropriate reason to reach out and find a therapist and talk to them about it. Far from something to be ashamed of, acknowledging your vulnerability and asking for help is a sign of maturity and strength.

If you feel that you have a desire and are committed to making changes in your life in order to overcome your current problems and achieve more long-term satisfaction, psychological wellbeing and personal fulfilment, then you are ready to seek therapy. We are here to help you work through a wide range of therapy issues that might be troubling you.

Will Information About Me Be Safe & Secure?

It is quite normal to be hesitant when it comes to sharing private and intimate information about yourself with a stranger. You may fear that you will receive judgment from your therapist, or that your therapist will share your details with others.

HQ Therapy Rooms takes your privacy and confidentiality very seriously. Our therapists are required to keep everything said in therapy sessions between you, just like your doctor is required to keep your records private.

For therapy to be effective, there must be unconditional trust built between you and your therapist, and this relies on a shared understanding of confidentiality. It applies to the outside world as well: it is standard practice for therapists not to acknowledge their clients if they run into them outside of the therapy rooms in order to help protect their client’s confidentiality. Read our full privacy policy for more information.

Can I Contact You For Advice About Getting Therapy?

Talking about your thoughts and feelings with a supportive therapist can often make you feel better and help you face your problems. It feels good to be listened to and to know that someone cares about you and wants to help. It is important that you find a therapist with whom you feel comfortable and can build a trusting relationship to help you make positive changes in your life.

But how do you know what type of therapy is right for you? Taking the first steps in finding the right therapist can be the biggest hurdle for newcomers, so we have made it easy.
