Jessica Bowers, Registered MBACP, B.Sc(Hons) Counselling & Psychotherapy
My name is Jessica and I am qualified in counselling and psychotherapy. My private practice is based in Alfreton, Derbyshire, where I offer both long and short-term counselling and psychotherapy. I provide a private, confidential space, where you are free to talk openly.
I will listen with empathy and without judgement which will allow you to explore your thoughts and feelings freely. I have had personal therapy; therefore, I understand how daunting it can be, especially in taking the first steps. I will support you through your journey with care and compassion. If I cannot offer you the kind of service you require, then I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a B.Sc(Hons) Counselling and Psychotherapy (First Class). I trained at the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute in Nottingham. Previously, I have worked for both a charity and a prison counselling service. I have experience in working with clients both on a long-term and short-term basis. I have knowledge and experience in a broad range of issues.
