Jacqueline Karaca M.Sc. Hons Counselling Psych; MBACP Reg.
I offer face to face psychotherapy in Alsager.
I am an integrative therapist using a mixture of approaches depending on what you want from therapy and how you express emotion. The therapeutic relationship is separate from other aspects of your life and a place we can explore your thoughts and emotions together.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I adhere to the BACP's code of conduct and ethics. I am a fully insured counsellor.
My therapy room is in a central Alsager location and has disabled access. I can offer day and evening appointments in the week, and morning appointments on a Saturday. The first full session will be an assessment.
To book therapy or arrange an free initial thirty mintue consultation, e-mail, text or call.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an experienced therapist. I qualified in 2007 in Counselling Psychology. My areas of specialism include; complex trauma, PTSD, DV, attachment, anxiety, sexuality and other emotional distress.
Before private practice I had five years experience in a charity for survivors of rape and sexual abuse providing therapy to men, women, non-binary and young people.
I have since widened my experience of trauma and the range of causes and responses. I maintain regular training and keep up with the latest research in therapeutic approaches to use in session.

Therapy is not about diagnosing or labelling. Therapy is about what you want for your 'self'. It is very individual. It is hard work for you, my role is to be alongside you through that process. Because it is about you and your 'self' we move at your pace and in a way you feel comfortable with.
