About me

'The way to happiness, is in letting go of what makes you sad'

(such a simple statement - yet so very hard to do)

Welcome! my name is Jackie Duffy, I am a Person Centred Counsellor & Therapeutic Practitioner with experience spanning over 25 years, and I offer Choices, a Bespoke Therapy Service, consisting of:

Specialist Historical Abuse Counselling

Person Centred Counselling


Deep Therapeutic Relaxation



Distance Reiki

Reiki for Children (within their own homes)

Reiki for animals (within their own homes)

Chakra Clearing

All the therapies I offer are aimed to allow you the space to detangle your thoughts - bring clarity to your feelings - healing to your emotions, and peace and balance into your life -

                to enable you to  let go of what makes you sad!

Most of these therapies can be accessed via the forms I offer: Face to Face, Telephone, Email, Skype, I.M.

I hope the following information helps you in choosing what you feel may be right for you at this time in your life.

You are welcome to come for a no obligation - free initial session of any of the therapies, to see how they feel, and ask any questions.

SPECIALIST HISTORICAL ABUSE COUNSELLING -Heal from the long term psychological and emotional impact of Sexual/Emotional and/or Physical Abuse childhood abuse - detangle your past from your present and begin to live in 'the now' and see through the eyes of today.

Person Centred Counselling - space to explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions to enable you to gain self awareness, insight, clarification and understanding of your issues to enable you to feel empowered in making clear conscious decisions within your life, that are right for you.

Counselling for the Elderly - someone to talk to, without the fear of upsetting loved ones - (within the persons own home optional)

Deep Therapeutic Relaxation (with affirmations) - A unique experience that will replace the will replace anxiety, negative thought patterns, feelings and emotions with clear thinking, a positive attitude, self image and confidence. Ideal for Anxiety, sleep problems, negative self defeating habits and behaviours.  Also good for focusing on attaining your goals.

Hypnotherapy/Hypnosis -Therapeutic hypnosis to help break negative self defeating thought processes, fears and/or habits - i.e quitting smoking/fear of flying etc etc

Mindfulness - Gain insight and self awareness of your own self defeating thought processes - recognise how past experiences are impacting upon your here and now - learn to communicate with yourself find inner peace and balance in living in the now.


Einsteins Famously quoted is "Everything is energy, and that's all there is to it".

Reiki - is a non evasive form of natural healing of the mind, body and soul, via the channelling of the Universal energy, that connects every living thing within the universe, nature/humans. Ideal for a range of issues: chronic Pain, Anxiety, sleep problems etc etc.

Reiki for Children - A gently form of non evasive healing within their own home. Helpful for children experiencing chronic pain, emotional difficulties and/or anxiety, stress, sleep problems.

Reiki for Animals - Ideal for animals who are anxious, distressed, nervous, in chronic pain.

Distance Reiki - a powerful experience via the channelling of the universal energy over distance and time.

Chakra Clearing - Balance within all aspects of your life is paramount to your clarity of thoughts, feelings and emotions. The Chakra are the energy centres within us that can become blocked via past/present experiences, thus clearing your chakras will remove the negative blockages and allow a flow of positive and healing energy to flow as it should, and enable you to maintain balance within your mind, emotions and life.


In recognising that we are all unique individuals and experience life as such, understandably - not one fits all

Most of the therapies I offer can be incorporated into your main therapy, to enhance or to meet your unique needs at that given time - for example

If you were looking to access Specialist Abuse Counselling, but your anxiety is stopping you from being able to voice your feelings, thoughts and emotions - incorporating a deep therapeutic relaxation session, which is a proven way to reduce anxiety, will reduce the anxiety to enable the counselling process to continue, without being gripped by the fear that anxiety brings.

All therapies will be tailored to you at any given time - you have choices!
