Gemma Levitas MBACP, FPC
Coach Therapist | Personal Development Coach | Life Coach
Hello and welcome!
My name is Gemma and i'm a qualified Psychotherapist & professional Life Coach.
I work as a Coach Therapist, helping my clients to gain a sense of clarity in their lives, improve their relationships, connect with their true purpose and put a plan together to build a life they love.
If you've ever felt stuck in a rut or like you've lost your sense of purpose, or that you're at a crossroads in your life and feel that you can't even connect with who you are or what you want anymore, Coaching can help. Book a no obligation FREE 30 minute Clarity call with me, so we can explore how Coaching could help you.

A Unique Approach
I support your emotional wellbeing with a unique combination of Therapy & Life Coaching. My therapeutic experience spans from working in the Oxleas NHS Women's Service to working in Private Practice as a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist.
Now I combine my therapeutic knowledge with Coaching expertise to help my clients discover and build a life of their own design.
My experience as a Psychotherapist underpins my work as a Coach. You may be finding things difficult at the moment and are considering talking to someone about it, but aren't quite sure who to go to. Integrating therapy and coaching deepens insight and compliments the collaborative, creative, strategic thinking that is part of the Life Coaching experience.
Coaching and psychotherapy both work to deepen self-awareness, but they are also quite different in approach. Coaching work is future focussed whereas Psychotherapy often explores past experience and works to reflect upon and process unresolved trauma. Working with me as your Coach Therapist is somewhere in between where I offer a combination of both approaches, working with you towards a greater understanding of yourself.
Coaching is a process of discovery to help stimulate change, so in our sessions together we will work to empower you with a greater sense of self awareness, clarity and purpose. As part of this process we can set some goals and plan steps to achieve them. Nothing is set in stone though, ultimately this is about you and your needs, your hopes, wishes and aspirations. Every single person is different so the process is tailor made for you. I work with you as an individual with their own unique wants and needs. As part of the process we will work together to free you from any regret, self-doubt, or negative thinking thats getting in your way and blocking your progress.
Personal Development Coaching is essentially Life Coaching, just a different name for the same offering! Its a dynamic, goal based process for those looking for support in accomplishing their goals and living the life they desire. My experience as a psychotherapist means I do this with insight, in a non-confrontational way. I'm not here to badger you into change, but there is some accountability on your part because when we are chasing our dreams, sometimes we need that extra support from someone to ensure we don't get too distracted by life's noise! Working with a Life Coach offers you accountability, clarity and focus - all of which are vital in keeping you on track so that you actually do the things that you need to do in order to progress!
Another benefit of working with a Coach Therapist means that in addition to the benefits of working with a Life Coach, you also have emotional well-being support from a qualified therapuetic clinician. I'm here to support you in your personal growth, helping you connect with a more authentic sense of self as you move towards your goals.
Sessions can be in person or via video call. This is proving very popular, particularly for clients who may want to have their first consultation remotely. Contact me to find out more or to book a FREE 30 minute Clarity call to find out how working with me as your Life Coach can work for you.
