Jean Young (MBACP) Individual and Couples Counsellor
I am a qualified relationship counsellor and work with couples and individuals who need a safe space to explore their issues. I also work one-to-one and have a long-term interest in supporting survivors of childhood abuse as well as people suffering from anxiety and depression.
Training, qualifications & experience
Three areas I have specialised in are working with adult survivors of childhood abuse (which includes neglect as well as emotional, physical and sexual abuse), bereavement and relationships. I spent two years on the NAPAC Supportline (napac.org.uk) and I am a counsellor at a local agency which specialises in childhood abuse, sexual violence and trauma. My experience of bereavement includes supporting people who have experienced many types of loss including childhood bereavement, the death of a child and bereavement by suicide.
Abuse and bereavement are just two of many life experiences which can have an impact on our relationships. I am a Relate trained and qualified relationship counsellor and work with individuals and couples who need a safe place to explore their relationship difficulties.
I also support people who are suffering with a wide variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, suicidal feelings, anger, symptoms of PTSD such as dissociation and flashbacks, trauma, loneliness and work-related stress.
My qualifications include the BACP Certificate of Proficiency, a Diploma in Relationship Counselling, a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and an Advanced Certificate in Integrative Counselling.
