Gemma Latimer Gestalt counsellor , E17

As we move through the COVID-19 epidemic together, I am seeing clients online via Zoom. I also have the capacity to offer two free sessions each week to NHS key workers. 

I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor offering one-to-one sessions in Walthamstow. As a counsellor, I work creatively and holistically paying attention to what both mind and body are saying to support new awareness. I believe we all have innate potential inside us and sometimes need help finding and awakening that energy. As a warm, curious and authentic counsellor, I offer a safe and supportive space to help my clients identify their self-limiting beliefs, habits and live their most satisfying version of themselves.

Training and qualifications

After training for 5 years, I hold a Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling from Metanoia Institute and am a BACP member abiding by their code of ethics. I offer short-term and long-term counselling, tailored to your needs. Training in Gestalt, means I work person to person, observing the present moment with curiosity. Unlike approaches which focus on the individual working through issues, the Gestalt approach encourages working together through your problems as a shared exploration.

My approach allows me to work fluidly with various issues, including; anxiety, depression, bereavement, low self-esteem, mood and confidence, trauma, anger issues, panic attacks, relationship difficulties, stress, creative block and lack of motivation. With a background in the arts I have a particular interest in working creatively and experientially with clients, bringing experiences to life in the here and now.


Initial assessment sessions and consecutive sessions are charged at £60. Sessions are 50 minutes. I operate a 7 day cancellation policy. Cancellations with 7 day’s notice will not incur a fee, otherwise the full fee is payable. My practice, unfortunately, is not wheelchair accessible and I do not offer couples therapy. Contact me to arrange an initial assessment.
