About me

My name is Jenny.

I am a qualified humanistic/integrative counsellor. I am an approachable, compassionate therapist who's aim is to provide a safe, secure environment for my clients. I draw from a wide range of counselling knowledge and skills. ( psychodynamic, cognitive behaviour therapy and person centered therapy ) This enables me to offer diverse counselling sessions to fully meet the needs of a person. I primarily work humanistically as I believe the counsellor /client relationship is very important for therapeutic change to happen.

I have a vast range of experience and work with people that have many different issues. My specialized areas are childhood trauma and abuse and adult mental health. I have had 14 years experience of working in these areas but also cover many different fields.

I can offer a safe non judgmental, confidential space where you will hopefully feel safe and secure and comfortable enough to share any concerns or issues that are affecting your emotional well being and personal development. I am a member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and work within their ethical framework. I am also working towards accreditation.

On our initial assessment session we will discuss the therapeutic models of counselling and how I work. This is to help you decide if you feel this type of counselling is right for you. I will only charge £20.00 for the first initial assessment, which is to cover costs.

I work from my home which is located close to Bristol airport and also at Hartcliffe and Withywood Community Partnership.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a level 5 diploma in Integrative counselling ( person centered, gesault and psychodynamic therapy ) I have completed my certificate in counselling and trans-actual analysis. I have a certificate in working with addiction and a certificate in working with bereavement. I also have a certificate in trauma, dissociation and recovery and will be doing further study in this field of work. I am also studying for a BSC ( Honours) in Forensic Psychology and am a student member of the British Psychological Society.

My training has been further strengthened by my work with the victim support service which provides emotional support to victims of crime and their families. My work was primarily with victims of sexual assault and trauma and families dealing with the trauma of losing a loved one through homicide. I have also worked for the NHS supporting people struggling with mental health issues. Through these organisations I have had in dept training for:

Childhood trauma
Adult Trauma
Mental Health Concerns

Sexual violence
Murder, manslaughter and road death

I currently work with adults and children and work for a charity in Bristol. I have completed further training around child development and behaviour and have a diploma in this field of work. I also work with victims of human trafficking and modern slavery.
