Jacqui Roome - Psychotherapy & Counselling (MSc, UKCP accredited, MBACP, MSPTI)
I am based in Nottingham, where I provide psychotherapy and counselling to adults. My aim is to offer clients a warm and accepting space where they can learn self-compassion, self-awareness and self-acceptance.
I decided to re-train as a psychotherapist, following a long and rewarding career as a social worker. The theoretical approach I use when working with clients is person-centred and experiential.
My passion for this modality began following my own experience as a client. My own life has been rich and insightful, allowing me to realise that it is normal for people to encounter difficulties in their lives, at some point. During these times, intervention in the form of counselling/psychotherapy can create movement for clients. I have a strong belief in people’s individual capacity to implement the necessary changes in their lives, during times of anxiety, stress and depression, if the right support is in place.
I create work-life balance by taking time to do some of the things I love, like going to galleries, running, following sport, practising yoga, reading, watching films, listening to music and walking in the countryside.
