About me

My name is Jackie and I am a very experienced, fully qualified Counsellor, I am based in Stourport, Worcestershire. Before becoming a qualified Counsellor I was a Life Coach and a HR Manager for an world-leading international manufacturing organisation. I have a wealth of life experiences to draw on as well as thousands of counselling hours working with young people aged 11-18 and as a volunteer to a local bereavement charity and working with adults in my private practice.

We all experience emotional times in our lives which we can struggle to make sense of, or to cope with. This can lead to many different feelings which can include stress, anxiety and depression; low self worth and an overwhelming sense of hopelessness . I offer my clients the opportunity to explore those often painful or challenging aspects of their lives in a safe, friendly and trusting environment, helping them to feel at ease and be able to explore life challenges knowing I'm not here to judge. I draw on my counselling knowledge and use a range of counselling theories which best suit the clients needs. My aim is to help clients understand issues which often prevent them from moving forward as well as giving clients new skills to help them deal with difficult situations in the future.

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.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
