Hi I am Jacqueline, thank you for visiting my profile.
I am an Integrative Therapist, based in Chorley, working with adults, young people and children. I believe that each person is an individual, with experiences and needs that are specific to them.
The diversity of my training and experience means that I am able to adapt my therapeutic approach. Although I offer Counselling, Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy separately, I can also combine and adapt them to meet your individual needs.The sessions provide a safe calming space, soothing the nervous system, reducing anxiety and that feeling of being overwhelmed.
I also work as a school counsellor working therapeutically with children and young people on the autistic spectrum and with other additional learning needs. I incorporate Intensive Interaction into my counselling, which is particularly useful in working with individuals who have autism or have difficulty verbalising their problems. The Intensive Interaction training, I undertook, facilitated a greater connection and understanding of working intuitively, an ability to observe body language and nonverbal cues within the therapeutic relationship.
Training, qualifications & experience
- B A (Hons) Youth and Community Studies

I also have many years experience working with adults, young people and children in a variety of other settings and sectors, including Youth and Community, delivering Wellbeing Projects and Healthy Lifestyle Workshops. In addition to this I have worked for the Council for Voluntary Services (CVS) Mental health Advocacy Service as a Mental Health Advocate.
I hold a particular interest and experience in anxiety, trauma, attachments and nurturing resilience, although I provide therapy to all age groups, covering a wide area and range of emotional complexity.
