Jacqueline Glynn Psychotherapist/Counsellor MSc, BPC, MBACP (Accred.)
I offer confidential face to face counselling and psychotherapy to individuals. I work in the City (Locations at Bank and St.Paul's) and in Muswell Hill. I am a full accredited member of the BACP and adhere to their code of ethics. I also am a registered member of the BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council)
My aim is to help people to gain a greater understanding of why they feel the way they do, and as a consequence manage their lives differently. Powerful feelings of sadness, worthlessness, self hatred, emptiness, disconnection and inadequacy can impact on our relationships, work and our sense of self.
Therapy is intended to help people understand and make sense of their own histories and the person that they are. By getting to know and accept our real selves we have a better chance of having more realistic and satisfying relationships with others. Connecting with our feelings and patterns of behaviour, may also mean we avoid destructive and unhelpful relationships and ways of living in the future.
I am able to work long term with clients or on a short-term basis with a focus.
Alongside my private practice, I currently work as a Psychotherapist within the NHS.
I have also been working in the Student Counselling Service of a leading London university for the last four years.

Why should I choose psychotherapy?
I am a psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist which means that I work with clients to make sense of their issues and difficult feelings. This involves trying to explore the relationship between thoughts and actions. It provides the chance to examine problematic behaviour patterns, with a view to helping you make changes. Therapy can offer you time to talk, space to think and an opportunity to explore and make decisions in a safe environment.
What are the benefits of therapy?
Counselling or psychotherapy sessions provide a regular time and space in which to share, explore and understand the nature of your problem or difficulties, along with associated feelings, thoughts and behaviour. Therapy is not the same as giving advice. The counsellor or therapist is there to help you identify and understand more clearly what is bothering you. They can help you to gain a different perspective on yourself and/or your problems and aid you in making choices and changes that feel right for you. All sessions are confidential and provide a safe space to explore and discuss difficult and sometimes hard to say issues. You can benefit enormously from the opportunity to share what you want to talk about with a dedicated person who is able to really listen to you. This can be a very powerful experience.
What kind of problems can I bring to counselling?
Anything that is worrying you and disrupting your normal work, study or personal life can be talked over in counselling. This may be related to your relationships including with family, friends, work colleagues and partners. Difficulties related to life events such as the birth of a child, divorce and bereavement may also be a key source of anxiety.
