Jackie Thornton (MBACP)
Hello and welcome to Elbow Room Therapy. My name is Jackie and I'm a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I have a Diploma in Counselling Practice and I'm a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I'm committed to promoting ethical practice and I adhere to the BACP's EthicaI Framework.
I have worked within the caring professions for over 20 years and feel passionate about helping people to realise their 'life' potential and in doing so improve their overall well being, mental health and relationships. We sometimes struggle to break the cycle of unhealthy patterns and need help to understand what is going on, unravel it and find clarity. Making the decision to have counselling can be profoundly life changing and can help you to reconnect with yourself and others.
‘Nothing changes, if nothing changes…’

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.
