About me and my therapy practice
I trained in Humanistic counselling, believing that all people have inherent worth and are to be respected for the life experience, whatever this may be. We all have an innate tendency towards growth, change and realising our full potential, but sometimes we need more space and time to be heard and understood, so we can uncover and process our pain, in a safe, non-judgemental environment, at our own pace. I see my work as a therapist in creating such a space, so that clients are better able to process their journeys and find their own way in our sometimes difficult world.
Although this is primarily a listening therapy, I am also trained in expressive arts therapy which I include this within my practice, if a client so wishes; this often accesses deeper emotions which may have been buried many years. I work from home and provide all materials and space to facilitate this work. As well as being a therapist, I have also worked as a sixth-form English Literature teacher, tutor and coach for twenty years, so am both comfortable and experienced communicating with older teenagers (18+) and young adults, as well as adults of all ages including elderly clients.
Working with people of all ages, at their own pace, means some come for as little as six weeks, some for a year: all is valuable. Often when clients choose therapy, they come with an idea of their issues, only to find, as therapy develops, that more issues unfold. We thus work together, as therapist and client, with what the whole person brings, in the moment.
I am BACP registered, adhering to their code of conduct and ethics. I work in private practice from my home in Haslemere, and also at a local counselling charity.
'Jenny is a kind, empathetic and very professional therapist. She is an excellent listener. She helped me to get to the root of my issues and encouraged me to build a new life. She taught me that nothing is impossible when you have faith in yourself.' AK
'I am so happy I met Jenny; she has helped me through all my issues and gave me the tools to help me through the tough times. Jenny is truly an inspiration to me and I will be forever grateful to her. She has given me the motivation to follow my head and my heart and to believe in myself. I would recommend Jenny in a heartbeat.' CC
