Jacqui Baker Adv Diploma BACP member
As an integrative counsellor I am excited to be able to offer you a relaxed environment that really can meet your needs. Having trained in multiple areas such as Person Centred, CBT, Gestalt and Mindfulness we can explore which works best for you and if needed we can change our focus to best meet your needs. Alongside speaking therapy and mindfulness I also use chair based activities and play. Using activities during therapy can be a great release and allow for a journey to flow when perhaps words won’t come.
I work with youth people, adults & families.
My specialist areas are working with young people aged 11-18 years inclusive. Some of the areas I have worked with include Depression, Anxiety, Self Harm, Phyical pain caused by overwhelming psychological pressure, Loneliness, Low self esteem, Anger, Grief, Loss and Behaviour issues.
For children of Primary age I work with play and speaking. Some of the areas we focus on are Confidence, Making friends, Managing loss and Behaviour. With over 20 years experience of working with young people I can offer you the reassurance that I put your child first and that I work ethically within the BACP and child protection. I hold a current DBS.
My work with Adults covers many areas to include Anxiety, Stress, Depression, Self Harm, Suicidal thoughts, Worries and Grief. I have vast experience of working with adult carers, those that are unwell themselves and supporting individuals in their darkest moments.
My work with families is based around play. This allows children and adults to relax and interact with each other. These sessions are focused and will have a weekly purpose as agreed as a family unit. Setting up boundaries and learning how to communicate with each other are some of the areas we develop.
I feel very greatful to have taken this journey. To have trained as an integrative counsellor fits what I believe, that one size does not fit all and nor should it.
