About me and my therapy practice

I'm Jess and I'm a qualified Person-Centred counsellor

Feel like everything is going wrong and can't find a way forward? Struggling to stay in control? Struggling to understand yourself? Feeling alone even though you are surrounded by others? Don't feel you have a sense of purpose? Being a Person-Centred counsellor, I am able to facilitate you a safe non-judgmental, confidential space. I will listen to you with care, warmth and empathy to help you to to gain the self awareness and the feeling of being understood to move forward. I am also gentle and down to earth with my approach. I specialise in working with low mood and anxiety, different types of trauma. I am able to incorporate skills from other theories such as DBT to help you learn to cope with your emotions.

In the last 15 years I have worked in many helper roles. They include working in crisis support, helping those who are at their most vulnerable time of need manage suicidal ideation. I worked with people who have experienced continued or complex mental health challenges, with long-term services not currently meeting their needs within a community setting, to help bring hope to their future. I have also worked in many physical health NHS services such as sexual health where I empowered clients find a positive way forward in managing their sexual health issues.

Practice description

Each session is 50mins each

Sessions are usually on a weekly basis and this is best practice for therapeutic outcome. If this is not possible for you I am able to discuss your specific needs on an individual basis.

My first session

I offer a free 30min telephone chat to see whether we are a suitable fit from both our perspectives, if so we would then book in our first session/assessment to gain a deeper understanding of what is going on for you and how you would like to move forward.
