Hi, I'm Jackie, I offer confidential, individual, Integrative counselling. I am able to integrate three main types of therapy, Humanistic, Psychodynamic and CBT. Put simply, I am able to work in a way that suits your needs, valuing your uniqueness. I adhere to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy's code of ethics.
Im a genuine, warm, honest and compassionate person who values the inner strength it takes in seeking someone to talk with. It can be daunting finding someone to talk to, particularly with the many profiles and types of therapy to read about. With each client that I see, my focus is to understand your outer and inner world, what makes you who you are.
My main area of work is with people suffering with anxiety, generalised anxiety disorders, phobia's, panic disorders. Depression, postnatal depression, childbirth trauma, becoming a parent, women's well-being, childhood traumas, domestic violence, psychological abuse.
self esteem, powerlessness, bullying, self worth, social media, anxiety, depression, exam worries, stress, family upsets, divorce, arguments, friendship difficulties, peer pressure.
So what can you expect from me?
I work in a relational way, with great importance on connecting with you and building our relationship. From my own experience of being the client, I aim to gently ease you into the process, by offering you a safe space for you talk, think and work things through, at a pace that suits you. Together we can explore your difficulties, with the aim of opening up new choices and possibilities. Perhaps you have something specific you would like to address, or it could be you are confused and just need space, time to figure things out. Regardless of what it is, it is ok, if you would like me to, I will walk with you on your journey. It is important to me that we build a good therapeutic relationship, one where you feel safe, where you can be you.
During our first session it would be good to talk about your expectations and what you would like to gain from therapy. This will allow for me to ensure that you receive the best support that you deserve. If I think I am able to offer you what you require and you are happy, we can book further sessions, until you feel you no longer require them.
So, if you would like to get in touch either by email or phone, even if just to ask a question, please do so. Then, if you think you would like to meet for a first session we can arrange a time that best suits you and go from there.
