Christina Fraser Jones
A warm welcome. I am a UKCP Registered Integrative Psychotherapist with thirteen years of experience working with adults within the NHS and the voluntary and private sectors.
Life’s challenges really can offer unique opportunities for growth. However, sometimes it is hard to make sense of what is happening to us, or something causes us to re-evaluate our lives. When thoughts are muddled, decision making can be tough. At these times we might feel we would like to talk confidentially to an independent person.
Acknowledging our need for a counsellor can be quite a step, particularly as many of us value our ability to work things out for ourselves. My approach is rooted in my personal experience that therapy changes lives.
Areas I work with
I work to support people to explore difficult thoughts, memories, behaviour, feelings and experiences within a confidential and supportive therapeutic relationship. You might be coping with life changes, relationship problems or bereavement or the effects of earlier trauma or abuse. You may have feelings of being overwhelmed by anxiety, depression or low self-esteem.
I have a particular interest in bereavement work and have ten years of experience supporting the bereaved including people bereaved by suicide, murder and those who have experienced the sudden, traumatic death of a loved one. I have supervised bereavement counsellors within an NHS hospice and currently supervise a group of volunteer bereavement counsellors within a Community Bereavement Service.
I offer a free initial consultation. At our introductory meeting we can explore what it is you need. If we both feel comfortable working together and I think I can be of help to you, then we can discuss a way forward. I offer sessions, both short and longer-term on a weekly basis for 50 minutes.
I have experience of teaching Diploma Level counselling training and welcome enquiries from trainees.
I abide by the Code of Ethics of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).
