About me and my therapy practice

Hello

I'm Jacqueline, a fully qualified Integrative counsellor with a background in Psychology.

I specialise in Trauma and Women's Health and I am particularly interested in how physical health and mental health are connected, and can emerge from trauma and stress situations.

I have a vast experience in working with women who experienced domestic violence, toxic relationships, trauma & intergenerational trauma, cultural and Women's health issues. 

The counselling sessions that I offer are inspired by my own healing journey and my educational background and work experience. Over the past 10 years, I have worked with multiple women from different backgrounds, both in person and online in the UK and internationally.

I'd love to hear from you and be your therapist if you:

*Would like to connect more with their feminine side and sexuality, self-esteem and self-care and reframe their experiences with the patriarchal society.

*have experienced abusive or toxic relationships and/or would like to understand the way you relate to others, feel more confident and have healthy and meaningful relationships.

*Have suffered from trauma and feel that this experience is impacting your life and manifesting directly in your body & in your relationships.

*Feel toxic perfectionism, anxiety, self-criticism & self-judgment and would like to be more compassionate about yourself.

* See yourself as a warrior and are physically, mentally and emotionally exhausted & feeling the need to embrace and reframe their relationship with productivity.

*have been diagnosed with exclusive feminine diseases such as endometriosis, fibroids, POCS, STDs & others.


Practice description

As a humanistic integrative counsellor, I believe that you are the expert of your own life and we will work together so that you can reach your full potential and develop self-acceptance. 

Our work starts with an understanding of what is making you to be stuck in life and preventing you from achieving your goals and living with autonomy and with authenticity. So the therapeutic plan starts with looking into your emotional dependency, your current and past relationships, your environment and situations in your life that might have generated trauma. By understanding how your mind was shaped to deal with the situations, we then are able to understand how to use your inner resources and  strengths to find resolution whilst navigating your healing journey.

My approach encompasses working with the inner child, reparenting, integrating the different parts of yourself so that you embrace your authentic self, understand your limits, emotions and how to relate to the environment and have a life with more awareness and autonomy.  

I work with a range of integrative techniques such as talk therapy, therapeutic writing, guided meditation/visualisation, psycho-education, emotional freedom technique, body-mind exercises and breath-work - it will all depend on what you feel comfortable with. 

I believe that the counsellor is key to provide a compassionate and safe space for the client to unpack their feelings and allow themselves to live a life more authentic and aligned to their Self.

My first session

Finding an ideal therapist can require a lot of research and talking. So, I offer a free introductory 15 minute call to explain how my service works and to answer any questions that you may have. This would give you the opportunity to decide if I am the counsellor that you would most like to work with. There's no commitment or cost at this stage.
