What to expect

Gemma Nethersole

My name is Gemma Nethersole and I will be your counsellor at Opal Counselling.

I am a qualified, experienced counsellor, offering therapy in a private, professional and confidential setting in Brighton.

I am a psychotherapeutic counsellor, trained in psychodynamic therapy and with additional training in time-focused counselling and working with young people (13-18 years old). I am a BACP Member (Registered) and have been counselling since 2010.

It is important that you feel comfortable with the counsellor you choose and we will therefore meet initially for an assessment. This provides you with a no-commitment opportunity to explore whether my model of counselling is right for you and for us to decide whether we would like to work together.

If the decision is made to move forward with counselling, we will arrange to meet at the same time, in the same place each week. We can arrange to work together for a set amount of time or in an open-ended format.

I look forward to hearing from you for an informal chat or to arrange our first meeting.
