About me

Hi, I'm Jackie, with over 10 years of experience as a Relational Integrative counsellor to Adults, Couples, Children, and Young People. Being an integrative counsellor means that I am able to mix modalities and work in a way that suits your needs, valuing your uniqueness. I adhere to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy's code of ethics and place high ethical standards of practice at the core of my work with people.

I'm a genuine, warm, honest, empathic and compassionate person who values the inner strength of seeking someone to talk with. I have experienced my own therapy and understand how daunting it can be to find someone to talk to, particularly with the many profiles and types of therapy to read about. With each client that I see, my focus is to understand your outer and inner world, and what makes you who you are. I value every individual I see with respect for who you are and how you have got to where you are. I have successfully worked with many people who have benefited from seeing me. This has been an honor for me to be a part of.


We are born into relationships and form working models of relating.

I currently work in my private practice with adults, children, young  people and couples.
I have experience and a special interest in working with adults who are suffering from anxiety, generalized anxiety disorders, phobia's, panic disorders, depression (feeling low) and relationship difficulties. Together, we can work through your difficulties at your pace. Also, I have experience of working with client's with family issues, loss, bereavement, postnatal depression, childbirth trauma, becoming a parent, women's well-being, childhood traumas, domestic violence, psychological abuse, self-esteem, powerlessness, bullying, self-worth, stress, family upsets, divorce, arguments, debt, self-harm, suicidal thoughts and eating disorders. My approach is to work with the whole person and not just the diagnosis. I am able to work short or long term depending on what you would like to achieve.

Children and Young People.

I am one of a few specially qualified counsellors able to provide counseling to children and young people.

I currently work in my private practice working with children and young people.

I have become highly skilled in working with young people suffering from anxiety, exam worries, friendship difficulties, loss, peer relationships, low self-esteem, parental divorce, bereavement, domestic violence, anger, bullying, school difficulties, self-harm, parent and child relationships, loneliness and identity. I can work with adults, children and young people with Asperger's and Autism.


I am qualified to work with couples, allowing you both space to be able to express any difficulties in your relationship. Sometimes couples can become stuck in how they communicate and hear each other’s feelings and thoughts. Our old relational patterns become activated and can hinder a couples ability in togetherness. I can help you both to hear and understand each other’s difficulties in the relationship.

So what can you expect from me?

I work in a relational way, with great importance on connecting with you and building our relationship. Sometimes it can be useful to work creatively during a session, particularly if it is difficult for you to find the words to express yourself.

From my own experience of being the client, counselling can feel scary. I offer you a safe space for you to talk, think, and work things through, at a pace that suits you. Together we can explore your difficulties, with the aim of opening up new choices and possibilities. Perhaps you have something specific you would like to address, or it could be you are confused and just need space, and time to figure things out. Regardless of what it is, it is ok, if you would like me to, I will walk with you on your journey. It is important to me that we build a good therapeutic relationship, one where you feel safe, and where you can be you.

During our first session, it would be good to talk about your expectations and what you would like to gain from therapy. This will allow me to ensure that you receive the best support that you deserve. If I think I am able to offer you what you require and you are happy, we can book further sessions, until you feel you no longer require them.

So, if you would like to get in touch either by email or phone, even if just to ask a question, please do so. Then, if you think you would like to meet for a first session we can arrange a time that best suits you and go from there.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

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).
