About me

Hi I am Jacqueline

I am a Psychotherapist working therapeutically with children, young people and adults, providing counselling, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy and wellbeing sessions. As an integrative practitioner I draw from various therapeutic models including CBT, Psychodynamic and other modalities whilst offering a Person Centred delivery, offering a safe calming environment, ensuring therapeutic adaptability so to meet individual need.

I provide respectful non judgmental and personalised counselling. Sessions are supportive and empowering working towards a deeper understanding of experiences or feelings triggering emotional distress, depression, low esteem, anxiety, stress, fear, trauma, phobia, and potentially feelings of guilt or shame. Life can be overwhelming and confusing at times making it difficult to make sense of things, we all need help sometime, your new journey equips you in becoming your own expert. Sessions support the development of skills to expertly explorer your own experiences and emotions, promoting, awareness, healing and an updated accurate sense of self, connecting to feelings, purpose and worth.

The first session, the initial consultation, generally takes around 1 hour, it is an information gathering session, together we build a picture so to create an individualised therapeutic plan. The first appointment is also the first step in getting to know each other, empathically creating a safe space for you to ask any questions, discuss any concerns and talk freely. If you wish to move forward with a personalised plan, further sessions will take place, ideally weekly and last for approximately 50 minutes.

I also recognise from personal experience how daunting it is looking for the right therapist, alongside the prospect of looking at the feelings that cause the greatest fear. I have experience of living with high anxiety, fear and with a constant feeling of not being good enough. Similarly I have experienced therapy, being sat in the opposite chair, as client, going through the exploration process and finding my inner calm, connecting with confidence, positive self talk, esteem and that I am good enough.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Advanced Professional Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling
  • Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling
  • Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling
  • Diploma in Hypnotherapy
  • B A (Hons) Youth and Community Studies

I also have many years experience delivering well-being workshops, previously working as a youth worker, and adult mental health advocate. As a school counsellor I both offer an integrative and neuro diverse approach, therapy in accordance to developmental stage. Sessions also draw from attachment and trauma based psychology informing play based therapy, understanding  early life experiences lays the foundations for adulthood, forming the architecture of the brain.

The effects of trauma can show in many ways, potentially, individuals can experience high emotion or low emotion, more detached with changes in self esteem, mood, behaviour and thought patterns.  Traumatic experiences can cause the nervous system to become stuck in a state of high alert, a fear response cycle, also noticed by a reduced ability to take in and process information, interact with others, express emotion and feel safe.
