Jacky Pyle, The Relational Counsellor & Supervisor, MBACP(Accred) UKRCP
I am a fully qualified, experienced, registered and accredited professional counsellor and psychotherapist.
I offer both individual and couples counselling, working with time-limited, long term and open-ended counselling contracts.
Using counselling, psychotherapy and CBT appropriately tailored to the needs of each client, I help with relationship issues, depression, anxiety, anger, stress, low self-esteem, low self-confidence, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, abuse, trauma, bereavement and loss, and any other difficulties causing distress.
How I work
I offer my clients the opportunity to talk about their issues in a safe, trusting, caring, respectful, empathic and non-judgemental environment.
I integrate a variety of approaches, skills and techniques gained from years of training and experience. Working collaboratively, I endeavour to help clients develop their personal awareness and understanding of difficulties by encouraging and facilitating exploration of thoughts, feelings and behaviours, significant relationships and relevant experiences - with a view to:
understanding how clients have come to be who and how they are
recognising repeating patterns in behaviours and relationships
facilitating clients in gaining insight into their impact on others
identifying the roots of clients' present difficulties
- alleviating emotional distress
- supporting and suitably challenging clients whilst they manage their issues and effect changes
Ultimately, clients may use their enhanced self-awareness to allow them to take appropriate control and responsibility for themselves, to improve the quality and enjoyment of their relationships and to make informed choices and decisions in their current and future life.
