Hello, my name is Jacqui Miller (Azure Dragonfly Counselling). I am a therapeutic counsellor and I specialise in online talking-therapy sessions.
I offer online sessions for anyone over 18 in the UK who is experiencing low self-esteem; anxiety; depression; identity issues; neurodivergence; or a chronic illness. I support clients who are going through various life transitions, problems, and experiences relating to work, home, family and relationships.
- Have you been suffering in silence for years - wondering how to manage recurring feelings of anxiety or low mood?
- Maybe you are concerned about the impact that life experiences have had on your self-esteem?
- Do you feel you are different, misjudged, misunderstood, or treated unfairly by others?
- Do you want to feel more confident in being your authentic self?
- Perhaps you have recently had a medical diagnosis and are trying to come to terms with what that means for you?
- Are you caring for a loved one with a chronic condition, disability, or neurodivergence, and feel you would benefit from a safe outlet, or some emotional support?
Now is a great time to think about positive mental health and find out how counselling can help.
Working as an integrative counsellor means that I can give you opportunities to work in a way that feels right for you. That may include, for example, focusing on situations, thoughts and feelings in the present; looking at experiences and memories from the past; exploring relationships, behaviours and habits; or thinking about identity, roles and self-development.
I can offer you support, openness, and acceptance, and will collaborate with you in creating an environment that feels safe to explore your experiences at your own pace.
My work is informed by counselling training, psychological learning and research, lived experience, and a commitment to professional and personal development.
I believe that counselling can transform lives - helping us to manage difficult emotions, negotiate challenging life experiences, and change unwanted thoughts and behaviours.
Counselling can open our eyes to new possibilities, boost our confidence, resilience and self-esteem, and improve our mental health and physical wellbeing.
With the right therapeutic relationship counselling has the capacity to be life-changing.
Being seen matters - I am ready to listen, and support you to achieve your counselling goals.

I am an integrative counsellor with experience in Psychodynamic, Person-Centred, Psycho-Educational, Gestalt, Transpersonal and Cognitive Behavioural approaches to therapy.
I began working with Wiltshire MIND as a volunteer student-counsellor, and have continued to work with them, alongside my work in private practice, since qualifying.
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
