Jessica Burchill (MBACP) Yasha Counselling
Welcome to Yasha Counselling! My name is Jess, I hope that what is written below gives you a sense of who I am and whether I am the right counsellor for you.
I am a qualified counsellor and a member of the BACP. I have my own private practice in Southborough in Tunbridge Wells. My counselling room is on the ground floor of my home, a warm, comfortable, safe place with easy parking on my driveway outside.
I believe that people can come to counselling for many different reasons. I am a believer of client led counselling and that as a counsellor I am there to provide my clients with a safe, genuine, non-judgemental place to be able to explore themselves. I believe that as a client you are able to reach your own goals in this setting and reach an awareness of self, to have an identity again. I am there to bring light on dark places of your life, to bring clarity to confusion.
You may have people you can talk to which is helpful but I believe that the counselling relationship is unique and set apart from any other relationship in a way that gives the client a space to reflect totally outside of their day to day world, to gain perspective, to speak and not be shut down.
There is so much power in being able to have a voice and to be heard.
