About me and my therapy practice
Life is messy right? Ever feel like your brain is so full and you can’t work through it? Well that is one of the many things therapy can help with, my name is Jackie Quinn and I have been a person-centred Psychotherapist for over 4 years working predominantly with clients who experience mental health issues, addiction, relationship/sex issues and childhood trauma. In the current world climate more and more finding a safe, private and non-judgmental space to sort through our thoughts is becoming harder and harder. I have worked for a non-profit organisation here in Edinburgh for over 3 years, I love my job and want to extend the clientele I have. As such I am now part-time, opening up some space for online and face-to-face private clients.
So you’re here on my page which leads me to believe that you are thinking of looking for help-Well done you. The first step is often the hardest. What is therapy I hear you ask, so here is the official blurb but it is important to note that your therapy is what you make of it, you are in charge of it every step of the way.
I will provide a confidential, non-judgemental, safe space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, behaviours, and life patterns. Together we will explore your life situation and establish your desired goals. The aim of the counselling process is not for counsellors to solve client’s problems, rather a way to assist the growth process and self-awareness so you as the client are better equipped to deal with current and future problems.
Therapy is different for everyone, I adapt my way of working and pace of working to each individual client. I believe therapy should not be thought of as a sprint to feel better, rather a marathon that at times can feel painful and emotional but with a real sense of achievement at the end. I don't work with set time frames, some people just need one or two sessions to work on something specific, whereas others find therapy a staple in life. We will figure out what is best for you, together. There are no expectations on you to set goals. You are free to make them as you go along but they are never enforced on you and should always be thought of as flexible. Regardless of how your journey goes and what ups and downs you may face, I will be jogging alongside you, encouraging and supporting the whole time.
I predominantly work from home either through phone session or Zoom but I can offer face-to-face appointments on a Sunday and Monday in the Blackhall area of Edinburgh. Some of the issues I work with regularly are,
- Mental health struggles
- Anger management
- Work/life related stress
- Life/lifestyle changes
- Sexual issues
- Relationship problems
- Self-esteem and Confidence issues
