Jackie Simmons P.G. Dip MBACP (Accredited)
Hi, I'm Jackie, a Qualified Couple Counsellor with over 15 years experience.
I have been trained in a range of approaches, humanistic, psychodynamic and systemic approach this allows me to work with clients in a way that is tailored to their needs. I provide a safe, non-judgmental, supportive environment for you, your partner or your family to explore the issues that are troubling you.
Relationships can be complicated and confusing, so it can be useful when you are struggling with understanding your loved one or feel you are not understood by them, to speak with a relationship counsellor who has many years of experience of working with various relationship issues.
As a member of BACP, I recognise that the diversity of human sexualities is compatible with normal mental health and social adjustment. I am committed to offering a service that is inclusive of social diversity, equality and inclusivity of treatment without discrimination of any kind.
I feel passionate about my work as a Counsellor, and I look forward to meeting you so we can move you towards a more fulfilling life.
