Jain Palmer MBACP. BACP Registered, M A, B A (Hons), Dip Couns
I follow the government’s guidelines concerning Covid to ensure that my practice remains a safe and virus free environment. I am a highly qualified psychotherapist, counsellor and life coach with over 10 years experience. I offer an affordable rate to make psychotherapy, counselling and life coaching more accessible to individuals. My private practise is located within a peaceful, private and confidential setting near Strachur. I offer Skype, FaceTime and telephone sessions for those who can not make it to my practice. I also provide a home visits service within the Argyll and Bute area.
I am an Experiential Psychotherapist, Person-Centred Counsellor, Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapist, Focusing Trainer and Life Coach. I am a member of British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists thereby work by their ethical framework of good practise.
Focusing, Experiential Psychotherapy and Person-Centred Counselling together form a gentle, effective and enpowering process to initiate positive lasting change. It will enable you to move forward with a fresh new perspective, creating a new way of being in yourself, enhancing your relationships and the wider environment.
Focusing is a learnt technique that enables you to connect with your own inner natural process. By pausing and sensing inwardly how the whole of the situation feels in the moment, in a fresh new way, a felt sense can form. Out of the felt sense new possibilities and solutions can emerge of what you need to move forward.
Life coaching is fundamentally about helping individuals create a better understanding how to set and achieve goals and ambitions. This is done by exploring the obstacles that stand in your way and the skills you can harness, build on or develop to overcome them; creating the most out of your life and living your full potential.
What to Expect
The Initial Session lasts for one hour. This is space for you to explore your experience and purpose for therapy/life coaching and to ensure that the therapy (or training) I offer is the right approach for you. There is no obligation to continue but should you wish to do so, we will then arrange to meet once a week for one hour at a time and day that is convenient to you.
As each individual's experience is unique the length of therapy varies from short-term, usually 6 weeks, to long-term, which is open-ended for as long as you feel you require it.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have gained extensive experience within my private practice working with adults, young people and children with a wide range of psychological and emotional issues and experiences. I have previous experience working in a GP's Surgery and Women's Refuge where I provided outreach counselling.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
