Jackie Gleed (MBACP) Integrative Counsellor. Adults/child.
Belle and Bliss
73 Commercial Street
Hi, I'm Jackie, I offer confidential, individual, Integrative counselling to adults, 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 whom have benefited from seeing me. This has been an honour for me to be a part of.
I have experience and a special interest in working with Adults who are suffering with anxiety, generalised anxiety disorders, phobia's, panic disorders and depression. Together we can work through it at your pace. Also, I have experience of working with client's with Relationship difficulties, 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 and suicidal thoughts.
Children and Young People.
I have become highly skilled working with young people suffering with 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, peer pressure, 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 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 for 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.
