My name is Jacqueline Fernandez and I am a qualified counsellor and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I completed my Masters in Counselling. My counselling orientation is psychodynamic counselling however I have training in CBT and person centred therapy.
I provide a safe and non-judgemental space for you to explore how you are feeling and to find ways to help understand what you are going through. I offer confidential one to one counselling in Stratford, East London. However due to covid19, I am currently only offering telephone counselling sessions (zoom can also be arranged).
I provide 50 minute sessions on a weekly and fortnightly basis. I have experience in short term therapy between 6 – 8 weeks and long term therapy depending on the client’s needs.

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.
