I am a qualified counselor & a member of the BACP and follow their guidelines to the ethical framework of good practice in counselling and psychotherapy.
Welcome to my profile my name is Jackie and I offer a calming and caring, open minded approach towards the therapeutic relationship in counselling. I also offer access to a diverse, multi-disciplinary range of expertise to provide the most effective course of psychological therapy and counselling. Where there is no evidence of psychological problems, I provide coaching and counselling for individuals to find solutions to issues that are affecting their lives. All assessments and treatments are provided in complete confidence.
You may feel overwhelmed on the start of your journey into therapy, and picking up the phone may also be a scary thought! With this in mind, please leave me a message and I will get back to you as soon as I possibly can. With my passion to support you, I assure you will feel at ease and that you have made the right choice with myself, as our relationship is established with commitment and trust. I will not judge and will allow you to discuss your issues in a safe comfortable place. As you are what is important, we can discuss difficulties at your own pace.
I have many years experience in working with others making a few small changes. Which have made big differences in their lives to feel more in control, instead of feeling controlled.
I currently today am managing a Chronic Pain Condition (Fibromyalgia), in which I specialise in working with Pain Management techniques.
I will not judge, or advise you. And believe in finding the right counselor, for the right client extremely important. I hope that you take the first and hardest step to book an appointment today, and share your concerns with someone that cares...
Training, qualifications & experience
I have privately studied at 'Victoria Counselling Service' where I gained a qualification in Basic Counselling Skills and also my qualifications in Advanced Psychotherapy/Counselling and then furthered on to a Practitioners Course giving me more knowledge on the therapies below.
I have qualifications in CBT/TA/Person Centred Therapy gained from the AQA Awarding Body.
I also have skills and qualifications in Solution Focused Therapy where I can guide clients to look at solving problems rather than wanting to work with the past and move forward with making small changes in your life.

I have had former experience in being in the role of a client. Foremost I understand the difficulties communicating can be. And, especially when we feel our problems are not as bad as others, my listening skills are of quality having run in my day job a role as a hairdresser.

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.
