Jackie Pond Dip. Couns. (MCOSCA)
The process of counselling involves you discussing what may sometimes be very private and sensitive topics. I know that it can sometimes take great courage to share your inner world with me and I want you to feel safe in our working together. I focus on building a therapeutic relationship; meeting you with honesty and respect and supporting you to navigate any difficult stages of your life that may be presenting.
I offer a non-judgemental, confidential therapeutic space and work in adherence to the COSCA Code of Ethics. I have been supporting and working with people for many years and I work face-to-face or on-line over Skype/Facetime etc.
I receive regular supervision from an accredited supervisor and undertake CPD (continuous professional development) using every opportunity available to me to develop my competence as a counsellor and therapist.
