I am Jac Battell, a Humanistic Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor working in Belper, Derbyshire, whose approach is grounded in relational and developmental psychotherapeutic theories. I am committed to ongoing, regular, and extensive continuing personal and professional development.
I provide both time-limited counselling (6-12 weeks) and open-ended psychotherapy to adults and young people.
My clients and I work together in an ethical, confidential, secure, and non-judgemental environment to help them experience the healing that can occur through exploring their emotions, thoughts and behaviours.
During your first, free, 30-45 minute initial consultation with me, we will explore what you want to achieve in your psychotherapy or counselling, and decide whether we will be comfortable working together.
My ultimate endeavour is that you complete your therapy, or counselling, feeling free and able to live in ways which fulfil you and make you content and happy.
