About me

It’s really important to find the right counsellor, someone you can connect with easily, speak freely and feel understood. I hope I can make the process a little easier by sharing some of my background and how I work.

I specialise in improving self-esteem, increasing self-confidence and self-acceptance, relieving anxiety and depression, working through identity crisis, improving relationships, communication and intimacy. I have also worked substantially with life transitions, both personal and career.

My approach is based on creating a safe space for you to share what’s troubling you, work through unresolved issues and gain new perspectives to make the changes you feel are right for you. I value connection and trust, which makes it possible to work through difficult feelings and find new ways of dealing with challenging situations.

How we work will be completely individual to your needs as no life situation is ever experienced in the same way by two different people. I like to understand what’s important to each person and connect at whatever level you feel your life needs attending to. This could mean exploring new ways of tackling situations, communicating or relating, exploring new perspectives or moving forward from a difficult place.

I offer gestalt counselling which means the focus of our work will be the here-and-now as it’s only in the present that we can make changes, let go of old patterns, wounds, painful memories and unhelpful beliefs and be able to create something different.

I’m happy to discuss any areas of your life that are troubling you. Please call me on 07515 570689

Client feedback:

"I have always been reluctant to start therapy, but when I realised I needed some help someone strongly recommended to get in touch with Jenny. Now, after almost one year, I feel I have to share this excellent piece of advice. Jenny helped me for about five months, but the effects of the work we did together are still present. Old psychological wounds have been healed and she gave me a method to face everyday difficulties. It did not change me, it liberated me thanks to a very subtle and clever approach". Cristina M, 2016

Jenny has given me the tools needed to overcome several hurdles from my past. I have continued to see improvements in the way that I am able to cope with life events long after our sessions together have ended. She is a patient, genuine and skilled therapist and I would certainly recommend her services.” Jodie, 2014

"When I first went to therapy I thought what I was feeling was huge but I was surprised that in so few sessions I could feel so different. It was about learning new tools for me, which I could easily apply to my life and helped me have more control in difficult situations." BC, 2013
