Jenny Foster Counsellor MBACP
I am a qualified counsellor offering a safe, comfortable and confidential environment. I can offer help with a wide range of issues such as anxiety, depression, low self esteem, health problems, relationship issues and bereavement. Maybe an experience has triggered how you feel, or you are confused about why you feel a certain way. Together we can explore life's difficulties, and work out the best way for you to move forward in your life.
I have a background in nursing and midwifery, so I have a good understanding of pregnancy and birth related issues, as well as health problems and chronic conditions.
I enjoy working with children and young people, both privately and in a school setting.
I work within the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) guidelines and ethical framework, tailoring my skills and techniques to meet the individual needs of my client.
I offer flexible times during the day and evening, at reasonable rates. To enable you to decide if we can work together, I offer a free 30 minute consultation
