Jenny Hughes MBACP(Accred)
There are many different and complex reasons for seeking help, and I offer a reliable and confidential counselling relationship at my practice in Weald, providing a safe, private environment to explore difficult or painful issues. Sometimes, just a few sessions can be enough to help us 'get back on track' and to feel less lost. At other times, knowing the support is available for as long as we feel we need it can be a lifeline. Everyone's situation is different, and our first meeting will give us an opportunity to discuss what might be the best way forward for you.
My decision to begin training in 1997 arose from a wish to be of more informed help to people I worked with at the time in a related field. It developed, however, into a new way of life and a continuing journey.
Training, qualifications & experience
BACP Accredited Member since 2002.
Postgraduate Diploma in Advanced Psychodynamic Counselling (2001) from Westminster Pastoral Foundation, ratified by Roehampton University of Surrey.
Diploma in Counselling Skills (Access)
RSA Cert. of Counselling Skills (1997)
I worked with clients throughout my last two years of training, and for the past fourteen years in private practice. I have also had six years experience of counselling in a GP practice, which enabled me to develop a way of working within time constraints that integrated my training with the practical, 'real life' needs of short-term therapy. I offer both open-ended and short-term counselling and psychotherapy. Although I do not work with couples, I do offer therapy to individuals who might be struggling to understand and resolve relationship issues.
