Alnwick NE66

About me

My name is Jean Callender,

I am a person centred integrative counsellor with 20 years experience of working with adults and children.
I provide respectful, honest, non judgemental, professional support. I have a gentle, warm yet focussed approach.
In your counselling sessions you can explore aspects of your life. You will find that you can talk about yourself in a deeper more truthful way that is rarely possible with friends or family.
Emotions such as: anger, depression, anxiety, grief, guilt, feeling sad and embarrassment can become very intense and overwhelming.  Counselling offers you an opportunity to identify, explore and understand your feelings, then work with me towards a positive outcome.

Adults

I gained my counselling experience by counselling the adult survivors of sexual abuse, emotional abuse and physical abuse. I now have 20 years experience and work with a range of clients from a wide range of different cultural backgrounds and sexualities. I have also worked for Mind with people with mental health issues.issues including anger management, anxiety, bereavement, divorce and separation, infertility, depression, relationship issues, feeing sad, work related issues, self esteem, shyness and social phobia. (please see below for a more extensive list)

I have also considerable experience of mentoring and supervising students who are training to be counsellors.

 I teach counselling skills in for school counselling organisations and Northumberland Adult learning Service.

I am a registered member of British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I work within their ethical framework, I strive to offer the highest standards of ethical practice at all times.

Children and Young People

I specialise in offering therapy to young people aged 4 -25. I have enjoyed working with young people for twenty years as a teacher, school counsellor and creative art and play therapist.

I have a gentle warm, yet focused approach. I have extensive experience of working with young people in schools, in foster care and adoption. I use talking therapy, creative art, and play therapy.

I value and respect each young person's personal information, and work towards empowering them towards achieving their full potential. I give them a confidential space to explore their issues.
I liaise when appropriate with parents and carers (for younger children) to ensure the best outcome.

I work with a range of issues including school phobia, anxiety, shyness, panic, loss, bereavement, low mood, depression, relationship issues, sexuality, and issues relating to bullying.

I have extensive experience of working with young people who have been physically. emotionally or sexually abused, issues around anger, and anger management, depression, low self esteem and confidence issues.

I am a registered member of British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I work within their ethical framework, I strive to offer the highest standards of ethical practice at all times.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
