Dr Jennifer Cooper (C.Psychol, D.Psych)
Who I am
My name is Jenn, I am an experienced Counselling Psychologist working within the NHS for a number of years. I have experience in working with a variety of mental health difficulties ranging from mild to moderate to complex and severe difficulties. I have experience in working with young people, adults, couples and families. I am trained in a number of therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Person Centred Therapy amongst others.
How I work
Within my private practice I work with individuals on a range of difficulties including depression, anxiety, stress, self harm, relationship difficulties and more. I utilise a variety of the therapeutic approaches to deliver psychological interventions that are tailored to your individual needs. I strive to work collaboratively with my clients to identify difficulties and goals for change. The therapeutic relationship is core to my practice and my first goal is to provide clients with a safe space in which they can develop trust with me to explore their difficulties.
I understand that seeking out help can be difficult and it can be a worrying time wondering if you and your therapist are going to get along. I offer, in the first instance a telephone consultation which lasts approximately 15-20 minutes and is free of charge. During this consultation I will strive to gain an understanding of your difficulties and provide you with some information on how we might work together. This is an opportunity for us to get to know each other a little without any obligation of ongoing therapy.
If you decide that you may like to work with me, then I will invite you to come along to an initial assessment appointment which will last 30-45 minutes and charged at £40. During this, we can go into more detail about your difficulties and my suggested treatment plan. Again, this is a further opportunity for you to decide whether you would like to work with me and there is no obligation at any time for our work to continue. Following from this we would agree on the frequency and nature of any ongoing psychological intervention.
I also provide clinical supervision to psychologists, trainees and other therapeutic disciplines. I also offer individual private therapy for therapeutic trainees at a reduced rate.
I am HCPC registered and a Chartered Member with the British Psychological Society.
