About me

Work covered for individuals, couples, teenagers and children from four upwards.

Counselling is a very personal exploration, I want to make sure that you understand that you will be provided with a safe space, complete confidentiality and all issues can be examined in a non-judgmental manner.

I work with an Integrative approach, trained in several types of counselling and psychotherapy that can include humanism, psychodynamics, Cognitive
behavioural therapy, Gestalt as well as the coaching of mindfulness.

We will work together to help be the best version of you, I am committed to personal growth and ultimately helping you to make positive changes. Counselling will not only consider what is happening now but may also look at the impact of your past, this can include inner child work.

Couples counselling

I offer a safe space for couples to investigate what is happening in their relationship and facilitate a place to explore doing things differently, including improving communication, interactions, conflict resolution skills and create an environment where you can understand each other and make healthy choices in an often difficult situation.


Children counselling

Young people often struggle with anxiety, identity issues, trauma, temper tantrums,
anger, bed wetting and family break ups.

According to the child’s age I use a range of therapeutic models concentrating on a child-centered approach, using play therapy including sand trays, art, Lego, music,
imagination and stories to explore feelings and thoughts.

Every child is unique, I use an integrative approach to tailor-make the counselling
to the child’s individual needs and how they see the world. I find this brings the best response and allows them to be individual and feel valued.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an Integrative counsellor which means I trained in many different approaches, I believe that one single approach does not fit every client.

I worked with Womens aid for a number of years so experience in dealing with issues such as rape, violence and relationships, many of my clients at Women aid and privately have suffered from depression, suicidal thoughts, high anxiety, self-esteem issues, the list is goes on.

I am extremely passionate about my work,....you do not have to do this alone, I am supportive but challenging as I want you to get the most from the sessions.

I am a qualified clinical hypnotherapist, life coach and a practitioner in Neuro- Linguistic programming.

My depth of experience and knowledge means I can help people to make real changes, and realise their own potential.

Testimonials-

Steve T says:

"Unbelievable Result
I had been suffering from bad anxiety for more than 4yrs. I had tried various medications from my doctor and nothing worked. I had only had one session with Jamie and I have never been ill again. I thought it was amazing and never thought it would work. It truly was life changing as I was ill every morning and had to get up extra early for work to allow for my sickness to pass. I got several messages from Jamie to make sure I was still ok. I also don’t have to take all the tablets that wasn’t working any way. My daughter paid for the session and made me go , as a typical man I thought it would be a waste of time. Well it has turned out to be the best present ever. I suggest that anyone who is suffering with a problem that the doctors can’t sort, try it out as it does work. Thank you so much, you made me feel really relaxed and I would recommend you to everyone."

"Jamie has made a real difference to my life!
Jamie has supported me in so many ways. Her help has been invaluable and allowed me to take some really positive steps. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. Her style of therapy is holistic and individualised. I cant thank her enough."

"Gastric band review
I have recently finish a gastric band course with Jamie, I was not even sure if I could be hypnotised beginning of this experience but wow yes I can and I love it, ]amie made me feel relaxed and talked me through the whole thing, supported me in-between sessions and I'm going for more sessions, smoking next as it works so well. I've lost just over a stone and its still coming off, I am sleeping better than ever and just have a new outlook on life."

Absolutely fantastic. I took my 7 year old to see Jamie, she was brilliant with children, very kind and patient. My daughter has issues with food and sensory issues and only eats certain foods, by the end of the second session she ate strawberry, banana, grapes and carrot! This may not sound that much to most people but it is such an achievement for her to not be gagging at those foods like she usually does. We can’t thank you enough she is now trying foods more confidently. After such a great result we took my aunt to see her who is 70 and suffers with severe OCD and has done for the last 40+ years. After one session she went home that night without doing endless checks and routines like usual she just went straight up to bed! We are so proud of her and so grateful to Jamie for her help we honestly can’t Thankyou enough and will highly recommend you to everyone we meet!!

Jamie was absolutely amazing and managed to fit my daughter in very quickly. Nothing was too much trouble and she even came out in an emergency when my daughter was having a breakdown to calm her. After 2 sessions and 8 whole months of a sever mental block my daughters confidence returned and her anxiety had drastically improved. She was very understanding and learned as much as she could about the struggles my daughter was facing to ensure the sessions were successful. I would not hesitate to recommend Jamie to others.

Jamie came highly recommended to me for the hypno gastric band. From the questions even before my sessions began she goes really into depth to make it personalised for every person. she has really helped me overcome some of my issues relating to binge eating and the difference in myself is amazing already.

I have just had excellent hypnotherapy sessions with Jamie. I’ve been struggling with weight management and confidence. Now losing weight following a Gastric Band hypnosis and one for eradicating snacking. Loved it. Give Jamie a ring.. you'll not regret it!

Thank you so much, from our first phone consultation I felt so at ease, I had no idea what NLP was but was advised this was the best option to combine this and hypnotherapy for stopping smoking. Just amazed at the results, highly recommended

I do not normally write reviews but I am achieving such a great result with this clinic. Could not ask for better from the results I am seeing, how comfortable and at ease I feel in the session and how confident the therapist makes me feel in terms of her professionalism and approach.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
