About me

I am a BACP registered psychodynamic and mindfulness based counsellor. My work is guided by our Ethical Framework for Good Practice. This means I will show the utmost respect, honor the trust you place in me, maintain your confidentiality, and always act with your best interests in mind. I’m also fully insured and I have regular clinical supervision and ongoing training to ensure my work is of a high standard.


Experience has taught me that having a safe, secure place to talk things through with someone who we feel we can trust can reframe one's perception if things and can move ourselves beyond our habitual ways of viewing life and see beyond the things that can hold us back.

If you are feeling stressed or anxious, facing a major change, having relationship problems, lacking confidence, feeling depressed or lost, bereaved, or perhaps looking for personal growth and understanding you are by no means alone. A safe place to feel heard can help us to understand our thoughts and feelings that often go unheard or unnoticed. This can enable self-understanding and personal positive change.

Online Counsellor

My name is Jacqui Bukbardis and in this document I am going to tell you some things about myself and I will also ask you to fill in a questionnaire at the end so I that I have some information about you. I will also explain how I work online and what you can expect if we decide to work together.

Online counselling aims to enable you to explore any problems or difficult feelings you are experiencing, with the hope that over time you can make changes that will help you to cope and feel better. I aim to be empathic while being guided by you. I believe that our past can affect our present and sometimes we are not consciously aware of what is influencing us. It is important that we can form a partnership and that you feel comfortable and able to trust me, so that you can talk about the things that matter to you.

I have been working as a counsellor for 12 years and have worked in a variety of settings including working for charity in Chichester, a private Health centre in Emsworth and a community service for young people. I currently working privately from home. I am a member of a the BACP and adhere to their professional codes of conduct which are designed to make sure that you, the client gets a safe and ethical service.

What is online counselling?

There are many different forms of online counselling. I offer three ways of working; Zoom (video platform) email and instant messaging. With Zoom I will invite you via email to join a meeting with me. This will be confidential and will, like face to face counselling last 1 hour unless we agree a shorter meeting. We will try to meet at the same time each week.


My full fee for counselling is £35 per session and I will ask you to pay the money into my account using Pay Pal. If you have a low income and would struggle to pay my full fee, we can discuss this.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
