About me

Practicing from Coventry. Leamington Spa and Kenilworth, Week days and weekend plus Evening appointments available.I work with GP or self referal and I am happy   to take on EAP work.

I am a Senior Accredited BACP &UKRCP* Registered Independent Counsellor/Psychotherapist and Qualified Supervisor .

My aim is to assist my clients achieve their chosen goals, exploring options, resolving past issues, enabling resolution and progressing forward enhancing self esteem and confidence, understanding that change is sometimes a very difficult process.

My approach to counselling is integrated, meaning that I can work with a combination of theories, Person Centred counselling underpins all of my work, especially when working on an emotional level with my clients, I have also trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and other Humanistic based therapies. I practice both short and long term counselling, regularly review goals along the way, often with short term work I have found that solution based theory is most beneficial.

I am an accredited bereavement counsellor, this is in addition to being a BACP Accredited counsellor, I also have specialist training dealing with domestic abuse and violence including anger management training, I am also very comfortable working with Couples counselling.

In addition to my counselling and psychotherapy practice I am also a fully qualified and practising Acupuncturist, finding many philosophical over laps including that of Mindfulness, a concept now widely recognised in western psychotherapeutic practice. I find my extra knowledge and training particularly beneficial when working with depression and Addiction, also including weight loss .

Dear Jacqui,

                     Thank you for the patient and smiling help you've given me in the last two years. I am a much happier and settled person now than when we first met. I am now able to look at the future with confidence and excitement.

Dear Jacqueline,

I would like to thank you so much for all the help. Thanks to you I feel I am back on track again. I feel I can have a better life now.

Thank you so much for all your help and support, after my past experiences with my symptoms of panic and anxiety I found your help so valuable. I was finally able to understand what I was experiencing, your knowledgeable explanation about anxiety suddenly made sense and by listening to your guided relaxation and description of mindfulness will help me to practice at home. For the first time since the onset of my condition 18 months ago I feel I have been listened too and understood and that there is hope. Thank you.

Hi Jacqueline

I hope you are well. Seems like a long time ago when we would meet and talk. I am doing fine and looking forward. The meetings with you have really helped me and I reflect on the lessons learnt and material provided with other reading for reference to make and sustain changes in my life. I am feeling more comfortable with myself. I would like to thank you again and you will always be someone important to me.

Thank you for everything you are doing for me, I could never have got this far without your support, I am very grateful for everything. J

Just wanted to say thank you for all you help during a difficult period. I still get support from thinking about the strategies and advice you gave. I am still doing well, its coming up for 10 months since I had a drink and I think about it less and less, I have even joined weight watchers and lost a stone. Many thanks and very best wishes. ……………

I hope things are as well for you as they seem to be for me. Thank you so much for all your help last summer, I don’t know where I would be now if you hadn’t helped me. I will never forget it, and will forever be in you debt. Thinking of debt I was horrified to remember I didn't’t pay you for my last session in December please find Cheque enclosed. Thank you once again. …………………….

Jacqueline helped me through the most traumatic and difficult part of my life, and i was able to put my complete trust in her. She offered strategies and advice which showed me how to make sense of everything. Always received a warm welcome and was treated as an individual. My problems and anxieties were met with patience, compassion and understanding which gave me confidence to face life again. To spend time with Jacqueline helped me in so many ways. I shall always be grateful and will never forget her.
