About me and my therapy practiceHello, I’m Jen and I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist. Life can sometimes feel challenging and things do not always work out the way we may have planned with everyday stresses and events easily becoming unmanageable. We all need support at some point in our lives to overcome difficulties. Counselling can provide you with the space to explore your feelings and overcome issues that are causing emotional pain leading to a more positive outlook on life. I have worked with clients on a broad range of issues including depression, low mood, anxiety, low confidence/self-esteem, abuse, bereavement, relationship issues, family issues, self-harm and suicidal thoughts. I currently only work with clients 16+. My particular interests are working with young adults 16+ experiencing emotional and mental health issues. I have a wide range of experience within the field of mental health dating back to 2009 when I started to support both adults and children with a variety of different mental health issues. Alongside my private practice, I am a qualified social worker and work currently for a local authority providing early intervention and prevention services to children and families. I have previously worked as an emotional health and wellbeing practitioner with children and young people. I have experience of counselling clients from a local charity MhIST and have also provided counselling to children in schools through Place2Be.
Practice descriptionMy approach: Although I am predominantly trained from a Person-Centred perspective, I can incorporate other forms of counselling to suit the needs of my client such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. My integrative style allows me to adapt in accordance with your needs. I am able to offer both short and long term counselling. How counselling can help: I know that taking that first step and reaching out for help can feel daunting. I will do my upmost to offer you my genuine understanding, openness, and respect. I place great importance on providing a confidential non-judgemental safe space where you feel comfortable to explore problem areas in your life. I will work alongside you on your journey to help you to find resolutions and develop coping strategies. Counselling can also help you to develop a different perspective and identify the root cause of your problems, which can lead to a happier more fulfilling life.
