Jackie Hughes - Dip.Couns RMBACP - Integrative Counsellor
I am a qualified Person Centred Counsellor Accredited with the National Counselling Society NCS (Accred) and registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP)
I have many years experience working within the NHS, Council and private sector. My empathic and warm approach creates a positive therapeutic space to enable clients to explore their difficulties in a non-judgemental and accepting environment.
I assist clients with issues including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, stress, anger, sleep issues, relationship issues, bereavement, addiction and abuse, empowering them to find solutions to their problems and ensuring they gain the maximum benefit from our sessions.
With my knowledge and experience of working as a Counsellor and a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner, I am able to be flexible in my approach, offering low intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) interventions as well as counselling. I am experienced in working with interpreters and can also offer group sessions as well as working with clients on a one to one basis.
I offer daytime, evening and weekend appointments. There is free parking in the side street next to the agency.

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.
