About me

Introduction

Welcome. I'm Gina Jones. I'm an experienced UKCP Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapist with over 25 years of clinical practice. I am also a HIPC-UKCP Recognised Training Mindfulness-Based Supervisor. I work transpersonally and relationally with mind-body oriented approaches with clients and supervisees. I draw from a wide range of psychotherapeutic theories and practices from the humanistic and Psychodynamic traditions. I offer weekly 60 minute hour therapy sessions and regular supervision sessions. 

My Training and Experience

I have had an established private practice in Northampton since 2005 and I have over 13 years experience of working clinically in the CAMHS/NHS.

My initial training was in Health Psychology as I have a long-standing interest in the connection and interplay between the mind and body systems and a depth understanding of the importance of working with the whole human experience in an holistic and relational way. This includes being responsive and receptive to include the totality of what it is to be human.

Being an Integrative Psychotherapist for me means being able to draw from a rich, range of theories and practices in order to meet what is brought into the therapy room. Integration of the mind-body- spirit experience is at the heart of the work to support healing health and well-being. The way I work draws from a psycho-spiritual oriented practice, body-based psychotherapy traditions, the relational school of psychotherapy and psychodynamic practice and theory.

My main clinical training was at the Karuna Institute where I completed an MA in Core Process Psychotherapy (CPP). CPP is a mindfulness-based approach to therapy and emphasizes a deep, ongoing awareness of one's body and mind for self-exploration and healing.

What to expect at your first meeting

I offer an initial introductory appointment, in order to gather all the relevant information we both feel we need to know. This process allows us to explore working together and for me to hear more about what you are hoping for in attending therapy. It’s also an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have about therapy and for us to identify the best way forward together for you.
