About me and my therapy practice
My name is Jess and I am a Person-Centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist working face-to- face in Edinburgh as well as on the phone and online.
I am a warm, supportive and empathetic person and I will not shy away from gently challenging your thoughts and beliefs about yourself in order to help you to move forward and grow as a person.
People feel able to open up to me and share with me their inner most thoughts.
I am experienced at working with the following issues:
• Anxiety and depression
• Self esteem
• Loss, grief and bereavement
• Loneliness and isolation
• Exploring LGBTQ+ identity
• Relationship difficulties
• Life transitions
• Stress and burn out
• Domestic abuse
• Navigating neurodiversity
• Childhood trauma
• Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP Accredited)
• COSCA Certificate in Counselling Skills
I have completed CPD courses on topics such as Suicide and Self Harm, Neurodiversity, Chronic Pain, Shame and Childhood Sexual Abuse.
I have a background in academia as a Researcher and Project Manager in Stakeholder Engagement and I am also a trained Facilitator.
I offer a free 15 minute online or phone chat for us to introduce ourselves and see if we would like to work together.
Please do get in touch with me if you have any questions.
CURRENT AVAILABILTY ON TUESDAYS AND FRIDAYS (DAYTIME)
I have availability on Tuesdays and Fridays, at various times during the day, at St Margaret's House, 151 London Road, Edinburgh.
I am a Registered Member of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and PVG (Protection of Vulnerable Groups).
My first session
I offer a free 15-minute phone or online session for us to have a chat and see if we would like to work together.
Each counselling session is 50 minutes long. The first session is an opportunity for you to let me know what has brought you to therapy and what you would like to gain from these sessions. We can explore how best to help you move forward.
As a Person-Centred Therapist I believe that the expert in your life is you and my role is to help you to facilitate your own change and growth.
The therapy may be long or short term- that is something for us to work out together based on your needs.
