Gillian Jacobson Integrative Psychotherapist MBACP (Accred)
I believe that we are all capable of making necessary changes in our lives to create the life we desire. However, we start life vulnerable and without any control over our early formative experiences. We have no choice over the genes we are born with, the families we are raised in, nor the impact this has on our psychological development. In other words, we become a product of our environment and genes, which determine how we relate to others and function in the world.
If you have been struggling with something for a while, or finding it difficult to move past a significant event in your life, reaching out is the first step towards dealing with personal difficulties and things that have been troubling you.
As an integrative psychotherapist I will support you to work through challenges and find a way forward. I also believe in the importance of feeding our bodies and our minds with the right nutrition, and incorporating mindfulness, meditation and self-compassion in our daily lives. If this is something that interests you, I can help you find your balance.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
