About me and my therapy practice

Hello and welcome.  My name is Jenny and I am a qualified person-centred counsellor.  I provide weekly therapy both short and long term to adults facing a range of emotional issues and life challenges.


I aim to provide you with therapeutic support for whatever difficulties you are currently facing.  My training and experience mean that I will listen in a way which I hope allows you to talk freely and without fear of judgment.  What we discuss is confidential and so differs from talking to friends and family, equally valuable but different from counselling.

The experience of being listened to in this way can really help you to gain fresh perspective and to unravel the thoughts and emotions you are experiencing.  It can allow you to make sense of your experiences and the impact they have had on you.  I believe counselling can be a powerful way of gaining insight, greater self-awareness and self-acceptance which can lead to lasting change in your life.

Seeking counselling may feel daunting but I hope to provide a friendly and welcoming atmosphere so you can feel safe and relaxed.

I have experience of working with a range of clients at a low cost community counselling service in East Sussex and before that I worked in a charity offering counselling for addiction.

I offer a free 20 minute consultation where we can have a chat together and you can decide if I am the right counsellor for you.


Practice description

I am a person-centred counsellor.  This means I will work with you as an individual, getting to know you and to understand you, and I hope enabling you to get to know yourself better.  My approach is to create a warm and accepting environment that allows you to share whatever you are experiencing.  I do not set myself up as an expert, but rather my role is to enable you to find the resources you have within you to move forward in your life.

I hope that the relationship we build will enable you to feel accepted, no matter what you are experiencing.  My aim is that we can work together collaboratively through the difficulties you are facing, difficulties which may feel overwhelming and too heavy for you to resolve alone.  I will provide compassionate support which I hope will enable you to feel more accepting and compassionate towards yourself.

The work I do is led by my client and what they choose to bring to the sessions.  It may be that you want to focus on things that happened in the past or on current difficulties or on worries and concerns about the future.  The main thing is I offer you space and time to talk at your own pace and I try to adapt my way of working to suit each client that walks through my door.

My first session

My first session will be a free 20 minute consultation.  After that, if you decide you would like to go ahead with counselling, our first full session will be a chance for you to talk about what brought you to counselling and what you hope to gain from our sessions together.
