Jacqui Pearse - Chartered Psychologist, Psychotherapist and Supervisor
I'm a chartered counselling psychologist based in central Bath, offering integrative psychotherapy and a range of psychological therapies (including CBT, compassion focused therapy and schema therapy) for adults and young people aged 16+. I also provide supervision for integrative therapists, and relationship counselling for couples and other close relationships.
Due to the coronavirus crisis, I'm currently offering online sessions only, rather than the usual 'in person' sessions.
As a psychologist, I offer research-informed therapy for a wide range of mental health problems, including: anxiety (generalised anxiety, health anxiety and social anxiety); panic attacks; obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and intrusive thoughts; trauma (PTSD, complex trauma and difficulties with dissociation); eating disorders; depression; and difficulties with emotional regulation. I also have particular interests in working with relationship difficulties; issues with identity or sense of self (including issues relating to neurodiversity/autism spectrum); and the long-term effects of emotional abuse, neglect and/or trauma in childhood or adolescence.
Sometimes, though, people come to therapy with a sense that life isn't quite right, rather than a specific issue: perhaps you might be feeling a bit empty, lost or disconnected. I provide a warm and supportive environment in which we can explore whatever is concerning you, and help you identify new perspectives and possibilities.
