Jacqueline Heasman MBACP (accred). BA (Hons)
As a fully qualified and experienced counsellor with BACP accreditation I aim to offer a relationship that provides a safe, accepting and welcoming space in which you can explore the worries and difficulties which are important to you.
I will not give you a list of do's and dont's or give you outright advice - rather I aim to help you to explore the choices which are right for you, paying attention to those issues, past and present, which somehow get in the way of you living the life that you wish to lead.
I respect that reading this may be a first tentative step towards counselling and am aware that choosing a counsellor may be a confusing process. If you would like to get a better idea of me and how I work please feel free to call.
Training, qualifications & experience
BA (1st class honours) Person-centred counselling
Diploma Person-centred counselling
Certificate CBT skills
I have completed the Cruse Bereavement care training and have extensive training in working with children and young adults
I offer one to one counselling on a short or long term basis which depends entirely on you. Either way we will regularly review our work together to make sure you are getting what you want out of the counselling process.
I currently work with adults with a broad range of difficulties and in schools working with young people using play and art materials where appropriate. I hold an enhanced CRB certificate and have training in child protection and safeguarding.
As a committed member of the BACP I am bound by a code of ethics and in line with this I am fully insured and have regular supervision.
