Jackie Gleed (MBACP) Integrative Counsellor. Adults, couples, child/young people
Hi, I'm Jackie, I offer confidential, Relational, Integrative counselling 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.
Im a genuine, warm, honest, empathic and compassionate person who values the inner strength it takes in seeking someone to talk with. It can be daunting finding 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, 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 develop patterns of relating. I have completed an Advanced Diploma which focussed on how we form working models of relating.
I currently work in my private practice with adults. My recent training (2018/19), has enabled me to work at a deeper level of understanding relational patterns between ourselves and others.
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 counsellor able to provide counselling 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. Together, the young person and I have successfully enabled them to return back into their school and manage anxiety symptoms as they arise. My other areas of work have been young people struggling with Exam worries, friendship difficulties, loss, peer relationships, low self-esteem, parental divorce, bereavement, domestic violence, anger, bullying, school difficulties, self-harm, parent and child relationship, loneliness and identity. I am able to work with adults, children and young people with Asperger's and Autism.
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, 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, 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.
