About me and my therapy practice

Hello, my name is Jackie and I offer a psychodynamic counselling service aimed at improving mental health, relationships and overall well being, based in Buxton, High Peak, Derbyshire. Elbow Room Therapy is a caring and confidential space where you can talk over problems and think about ways to approach them. Whether you are experiencing new issues, on going problems or difficulties relating to the past, you are welcome to get in touch.

I have worked within the caring professions for over 20 years and feel passionate about helping people to realise their 'life' potential and in doing so improve their overall well being, mental health and relationships. We sometimes struggle to break the cycle of unhealthy patterns and need help to understand what is going on, unravel it and find clarity. Making the decision to have counselling can be profoundly life changing and can help you to reconnect with yourself and others.

Psychodynamic therapy is about developing your self awareness and understanding how the past can influence present behaviour. You talk about what's going on in your life now and what's happened to you in the past and how your past experiences can affect how you think, feel and behave in the present. I will help you make the connections between the past and present and to reflect on how to start making decisions based on how you're feeling now instead of what has happened in the past.
