Jacqueline Karaca M.Sc. Hons Counselling Psych; MBACP Reg.
NB: Covid-19 Update. I am only able to take on new clients online via zoom or over the telephone until further notice.
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.
I am not able or qualified to provide court reports, assessments or diagnosis.
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; attachment, sexuality, anxiety, complex trauma, 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. To avoid conflict of interest I do not have the expertise to work with clients who have been charged with sexual offences.
