About me and my therapy practice
Hello, I'm Jacquie, welcome to Calyx (website coming soon...)
Processing past or present hurts, dealing with situations that overwhelm & confuse, are times when we just can't see clearly enough to glean perspective.
One of the greatest privileges I have as a counsellor is the humbling experience of being allowed access to my clients inner landscape. No-one knows you better than you but sometimes we can lose our way & sight of who we are. I hope to accompany you through your toils, working in a person-centred way where empathy, compassion & non-judgement remain at the heart of what I do. As we navigate through the journey, I’ll take an integrative approach tailored to your needs.
Grief is potentially the most painful & isolating experience a human will ever have to endure. There is no quick fix but having someone who can support us as we try to come to terms with life changing loss is invaluable. At a time when we are perhaps our most fragile, I will offer you warmth & compassion as you make your way through the maze that is grief.
Mediation can be the difference from irreparable damage in any relationship/marital breakdown, particularly when children are involved, to somehow making the best of what can be a deeply painful time. I take a specialist interest in this, helping both parties work at compromise & minimise the potential hurt separating couples can inflict on each other & perhaps unwittingly, children too.
Working with young people in higher education as a mental health mentor is as challenging as it is rewarding. Diversity is rich here & I’ve gained valuable experience working with students who need support whilst managing diagnosis ranging from autism, ADHD, depression/anxiety. I work collaboratively with students to promote resilience by implementing strategies to foster independence & a stronger sense of self.
I understand it can be difficult to get a feel for someone in this format, but after having read a little about me, I hope you will feel a small sense of relatability & connection.
I offer a free initial 40 minute session so you can decide if you would like to continue your journey with me.
