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.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
