Gillian Jacobson Integrative Psychotherapist MBACP (Accred)
Why come to therapy?
Have been struggling with something for a while, or finding it difficult to move past a significant event in your life?
Are you experiencing feelings of guilt, shame and anger? Do you find yourself having negative thoughts and being very self critical? Do you feel anxious in social situations?
Do you experience feelings of helplessness and frustration?
If so, you are not alone and it is perfectly normal to be feeling and experiencing the above and more. There can be many reasons for this, and it is these reasons that I can help you to uncover, understand and process.
Counselling can seem daunting as you may not know what to expect. From me, you can expect warmth, acceptance, non-judgment and a safe space to talk about things that are difficult.
If you feel ready to take the first step towards
- overcoming internal struggles,
- increasing your self awareness,
- growing emotionally stronger
- feeling more able to deal with life's ups and downs,
- feeling better about yourself
- and letting go of difficult feelings,
get in touch via email to see if we might be a good fit. I usually respond to all enquiries within 24 - 48hrs.

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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
