Jessica Gash

Counselling Psychologist in Training

There are many reasons why you may be seeking therapeutic support including mental health issues, bereavement, relationship challenges, difficulty at work or struggling with a particular experience. Whatever your reasons, I provide safe, supportive and non-judgemental support which is bespoke to your needs.

I believe that developing a strong, trusting and authentic therapeutic relationship is central within each individual psychotherapy encounter. This means that I would like to explore your unique experiences, beliefs, emotions, and perspectives, before we collaboratively establish the therapeutic modality which may benefit you. While we together explore your current experiences, I believe it is important to understand your past lived experiences, so to better understand the difficulties you may be currently experiencing.

As a Counselling Psychologist in training, I combine various counselling skills to suit your individual needs. My therapeutic approach is based on creating an empathic, safe space for you to nurture self-awareness, explore, resolve or reconcile with troubling or distressing feelings and experiences. As a member of the British Psychological Society, Division of Counselling Psychology, I offer an integrative approach of one-to-one talking therapy. This means I draw from a variety of different theoretical approaches including Person Centred, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, depending on your needs and preferences.

Therapy provides the opportunity to speak about feelings and experiences that are most distressing to us within a safe, private and confidential space. I understand that therapy may feel a daunting experience and aim to support you on this journey by offering a containing, empathetic and compassionate space wherein we may progress at a pace that best suits you. 

My personal and professional experiences have rendered me a compassionate, humanistic practitioner, committed to promoting sustainable change. I have learnt that challenging thoughts and assumptions and searching for doubt in how we create meaning is essential when exploring positive change. I hope that every person I work with will reach a place where they are able to flourish.
