Counselling Rochester


Helllo, my name is Gaye Mitchell and I’m based at CBT and Counselling Rochester practice. I’m a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist with an ‘Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling” and I’m accredited by the NCS (National Counselling Society). I offer counselling and psychotherapy for adults on both a long term or short term basis.


With over 18 years’ working in mental health both for the NHS and privately has enabled me to gain a vast amount of knowledge and experience.

Whilst working for the ‘NHS Forensic Mental Health’ I supported people with a wide range of issues, such as anxiety, depression, abuse and addiction.

I have experience working with a wide range of age groups; supporting the learning of new skills. I have also and co-facilitated groups to help them understand the psychology of making small changes in behaviour could change their lives for the better.

My work helping others within the community has allowed me to witness the difference it can make to a person when they make small changes to help  them make sense of their situation.

I am also a practicing therapist for ‘Harmony Therapy Trust’. This is a charity providing free NHS approved complementary treatment with  serious life illnesses. Alongside voluntarily working for the Samaritans to help cancer patients receiving treatment with’ Look Good Feel Better’. This is to help with low self-esteem and confidence.

How I can help

I understand, that taking the first step into counselling might feel quite difficult. However,  rest assured, my approach is warm, understanding and empathetic. Above all, I will provide a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space for you to talk.

By gently asking you the right questions I will help you explore your thoughts and feelings. In other words, I will listen and value any struggles you are having and support you in finding a way to move forward more positively.

I won’t offer you advice but instead allow you the freedom to tell your story and find a way forward. However, I will take an active role in assisting you make the changes in your life that you feel will benefit you and ensure that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Ethical Standards

I subscribe to and work within the NCS code of ethics and the BACP ethical framework. Alongside undertaking regular professional development and supervision as well as having professional indemnity insurance.

If you are seeking medication, a medical diagnosis or report, then an appointment with your GP or a Consultant Psychiatrist would be more appropriate.

At Counselling Rochester I offer help and support for any type of problem.   such as anxiety, bereavement, depression, anger management, relationship problems and stress.

  1. Hi Gaye,

    I am looking at arranging some counselling for one of my colleagues, who is suffering from some debilitating panic attacks currently. They have given me permission to reach out to you in the first instance to arrange an appointment – however I have made it clear that they then need to take the next step themselves.

    One thing they are concerned about is meeting in a clinical setting, or a room within a building where they feel trapped – they are happy with a setting less formal. I am not sure of your arrangements?
