Jemma Kane is a counsellor/psychotherapist who works with individual adults and couples with a wide range of issues and problems including: anxiety; depression/low mood; stress; bereavement/grief/loss; anger; gender and sexual identity; low self-esteem; life transitions; obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD); post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD); relationship issues; relaxation; self-harm; trauma; and many more issues. 

She has particular experience working with relational issues with an emphasis on helping clients to reframe and reshape negative childhood messages. Her most recent expertise extends to guiding individuals through the impact of narcissistic parenting. In addition, Jemma is dedicated to exploring and enhancing the self-worth and self-esteem of clients and recognising the pivotal role these play in factors such as stress, anxiety, and depression. Jemma is passionate about providing support to clients navigating loss, grief and bereavement; and those who are managing significant life transitions. She has an in-depth understanding of the care experience, encompassing kinship care, residential care, foster care, or adoption and how these experiences may change an individual's life trajectory. 

Jemma's way of working

Jemma is a warm, empathetic practitioner who strongly believes in the importance of the therapeutic relationship in counselling. She aims to build a strong connection with clients where they can feel comfortable to be themselves and which fosters self-acceptance, openness, and reassurance. 

Jemma integrates a range of theoretical approaches and strategies into her counselling/psychotherapy work to meet the unique needs and preferences of each person. These include: Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Compassion-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Interpersonal Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Schema Therapy, and Emotion Focused Therapy. She works from a person-centred perspective, placing the client in the role of the expert. 

Jemma believes that the quality of our relationships influence the quality of our lives. She may use attachment theory to help clients recognise the impact of previous relationships and how this may affect their ways of interacting with others in the present. She may also make use of elements from CBT to highlight the connections between thought patterns, feelings and behaviours. 

When working with couples, Jemma uses elements from a range of evidence-based approaches including psychodynamic theory, which explores issues held in the unconcious mind and defence mechanisms. She believes in instilling a sense of hope to empower couples to navigate conflict and find solutions.
