Counselling can help you to better ride the ebb and flow of life
Working with a counsellor or psychotherapist (these can be used interchangeably) can offer a space that's safe and non judgemental to explore life's difficulties, reoccurring patterns, sadness and worry.
Clear Water Therapy works within an integrative approach, flexing and adapting to use the most appropriate modality to suite your circumstances. Sessions are client lead and collaborative, working with your goals at a pace that suites you.
Therapy aids in achieving a better understanding of yourself and your unique experiences which can help you to develop greater self compassion, overcome cognitive distortions, improve emotional wellbeing and generate behavioural change. This all helps you to stop falling back into unhelpful habits.
In person clinics are held in Musselburgh, East Lothian, Scotland.
Gemma regularly attends continued development to enhance her approach and therapeutic reach. She specifically continues to develop her trauma approach and has completed SMART Recovery training.
Working with you remotely
Clear Water Therapy is also pleased to offer remote appointments.
No matter where you are in the world or what the circumstances Gemma offers a flexible approach to Counselling, Clinical Hypnotherapy and Coaching.
As with in person booking professional standards and tailored sessions are available to best meet your individual needs and requirements.
A Psychotherapeutic Approach
Hypnosis is a natural state into which you enter when the logical mind becomes more subdued and the unconscious mind becomes uppermost. The unconscious is the part of the mind that’s responsible for habits, unconscious processes and feelings, here it is possible to access your core values and beliefs providing a unique opportunity to alter your thought patterns and behaviours.
Psychotherapeutic approach places significant emphasis on the close and in depth therapeutic relationship created between the therapist and client in order to view human suffering holistically in the context of the persons inner circumstances and life. This approach can aid with in deep healing and inner child work.
You will have already experienced hypnosis such as being engrossed in a book or driving through a place and not remembering. We all experience a natural state of hypnosis every day, including just before we fall asleep.
I offer both Guided Meditations/Creative Visualisation and Clinical Hypnotherapy.
Clear Water Therapy offers a variety of techniques including;
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) | Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) | Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR)
Below is a list of areas Gemma can typically work, however this list is not exhaustive, if you are looking for something not on the list please do get in touch to discuss further as Gemma will adapt packages to meet your individual needs.
| Stop Smoking (one session only) | Weight loss | Virtual Gastric Band | Confidence and Ego Strengthening | Stress | Pain Relief | Performance Anxiety | Phobias and Fears | Nail Biting | Blushing | Peak Performance | Regression (including past life) | Childbirth | Asthma | Allergies | Skin Disorders | Obsessive Compulsive Disorders | Trichotillomania (hair pulling) |
Clients claim to feel relaxed and renewed after each session.
Within Clinical Hypnotherapy it is not uncommon to require only 1 session to get rid of an unwanted habit or deal with an irrational fear however some people feel more comfortable with two or more sessions, particularly if they want to learn Self-Hypnosis or to build on their new found confidence.*
Clear Water Therapy recommends a minimum of two sessions for hypnotic weight reduction but four is preferable, with packages available to suit this. If your case is particularly complex then up to 6 sessions may be needed.*
Children respond very well to hypnosis because they have such good imaginations although their attention spans are much shorter. It is not uncommon for a child to have problems at school and hypnotherapy can be extremely useful to help them overcome anxiety or bullying. At Clear Water Therapy Gemma will always ask if a young client wants an adult present and for very young children it is essential. Children love to incorporate a favourite hero into their solution making and if appropriate will use drawing to express themselves.*
In summary Gemma has found for those who are willing to embrace hypnosis and are open to change that remarkable results are possible.*
Relaxation stress management and group hypnosis options are also available and can be particularly suitable in corporate environments and educational establishments as part of the overall wellbeing strategy.*
Hypnotherapy is a partnership between Hypnotherapist and Client. No hypnotherapist has ‘control’ over a client.
Gemma offers a Global online therapeutic service and remote sessions are a popular choice. You can also choose to Gemma's online communities via the Facebook and Instagram links and will find a small selection of free hypnotic meditations on YouTube.
* Results may vary from individual to individual
Intuitive Healing and Goal Setting with meditation, mindfulness and a holistic approach
Like going to the gym or eating healthy, choosing to develop yourself is essential to achieving a happy, healthy and fulfilling life.
By understanding and exercising your mental and emotional wellbeing you are creating positive habits and laying the foundations for your success, and personal growth.
Coaching can help you to find your way, plan your steps and achieve and exceed your goals.
You can begin to get clarity on your hopes and dreams, recognise your self limiting beliefs, how these connect to your core values and learn how to overcome them by realising your power, uncovering your resilience and awakening your potential.
Gemma helps her clients to find clarity, confidence and self compassion.
With 14 years experience in personal and corporate coaching, Gemma offers life coaching services, professional coaching and stress management workshops. Gemma works with both individual and corporate clients offering one to one consultations, groupwork and wellbeing events / business and corporate training sessions.
Coaching can be stand alone or integrated with guided meditation, hypnotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and other techniques.
