As a qualified Person–Centred Counsellor that has over 17 years’ experience, both personally and professionally, within the field of Mental Health, Addictions and Eating Disorders, Miss Gemma Wood is an advocate of removing all stigma around mental health issues and am dedicated to providing exemplary care for those who deal with these conditions.
Beyond this, she also has vast experience working with all age groups, including children and adolescents. Her particular field of interest is the treatment of eating disorders - particularly in children and adolescents. She has personal experience witnessing how eating disorder sufferers frequently feel stigmatised and judged and is passionate about creating a supportive, communicative and empathic treatment model in which patients are understood in an holistic way and provided with multifaceted psychotherapeutic support in order to make a full recovery.
Since qualifying, she has furthered her training in order to specialise in Eating Disorders, Trauma and Anxiety disorders. To this extent, she is currently training in level 3 EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) and offers a multi skilled approach, combining a number of therapeutic models (CBT, EFT, Sedona Method, RPT and Healing) to facilitate a tailored treatment plan for each individual’s needs.
