Head of Pastoral Care, Independent School

“Gemma provided counselling to my son following a serious incident that deeply affected him. After meeting three other counsellors before we came across Gemma, no other counsellor really connected with my son like she did. My son felt comfortable, and she quickly gained his trust. This led to several years under her care and ultimately, Gemma made a significant and palpable difference to my son’s life then and now. She also helped the whole family as these situations bring enormous stress and worry to everyone concerned. I couldn’t recommend Gemma highly enough.”

Father of an 11 year old girl who received support from me on a one to one basis in the comfort of their own home.

One of Gemma’s greatest strengths has been her ability to rapidly develop a relationship with my son, and to make him feel that she was someone he could trust, and ‘open up’ to. For a significant period of time, he would only talk about certain issues and feelings with Gemma, and he found it far easier to speak with her, rather than to us, as his parents. Over time however, and with a huge amount of sensitive and patient support from Gemma, he has learned to recognise and manage his own emotions, as well as how to talk about these with others, including us. Gemma has helped him build skills for life, and we have seen him truly ‘grow’ through his work with her. He is far more balanced emotionally, and now has a much more positive sense of himself, and what he wants to achieve in life. Without her, I truly don’t believe that he would have got to this point, and we simply wouldn’t have known where to start in trying to help him.

In the years we have worked with her, we have always found Gemma to be highly professional, but she has also been warm, good-humoured, and always ready to be supportive to us as parents, and to give empathetic and helpful advice on how we can manage challenging situations with our son. She has also always made us feel that we are part of a team working to support our son, which has made a huge difference to us, and it is clear that she cares deeply about her work, and the children who she supports. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Gemma to other parents, and have recommended her to several close friends, all of whom have been as happy as we have been with the work which she has done with their children. She really is ‘one of a kind’ and we feel truly privileged that she has been able to work with our son.”
