Jemma West Trainee Therapeutic Counsellor

Jemma West:

Trainee Therapeutic Counsellor

My name is Jemma West, I am a trainee counsellor working in the low-cost therapy and counselling service at HQ Therapy Rooms in Hackney, London E8.

I am currently studying my Diploma Level 4 in Therapeutic Counselling specialising in person-centred Therapy at New City College Epping. I work and follow under the BACP Ethical Framework within my counselling practice. I am also a member of the BACP (British Association Counselling Practice).

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 and lead the session. I will provide you with a professional and confidential service, providing a safe, empathic, comfortable, warm friendly environment 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 is going on for you. Throughout our sessions together I will use the 3 core conditions, unconditional positive regards, 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.

My Background
I have worked in primary and secondary schools for the past 11 years supporting all aged children who have all types of complex and behaviour needs. I have a warm friendly nature and a passion for helping work. I am currently working as a behaviour mentor with children aged between 11 and 16 years old supporting them to understand their behaviours through their feelings and emotions.

Working with children has made me want to extend my skills and train to become a counsellor, so I can offer my support and counselling services to adults as well.
