Jasmine Reavley BSc, PGCC, Couns Diploma
Hi. Are you looking for new and more helpful ways to deal with life's difficulties? As a qualified counsellor I can help you explore and develop a better sense of who you are and what choices you have about how you live your life.
Meeting with a counsellor is part of a very personal journey which leads to a greater sense of wellbeing and I would be honoured to meet you on your journey to help facilitiate this.
As a person-centred counsellor my method of work involves:
sensitive understanding, to enable self-exploration and change
caring understanding, to create self-acceptance and a sense of identity
perceptive understanding, to expand your self-knowledge.
I express the attitudes of warmth, trust and a nonjudgmental style in the counselling relationship and do so from a comfortable counselling studio at the bottom of my garden.
Please contact me if you would like to talk over whether counselling could be helpful to you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been working with people's wellbeing for 15 years, as a community mediator, a mental health worker, a massage therapist and a tai chi teacher. I have been studying psychology since my degree in 2001, then at Edinburgh University and most recently with a COSCA accredited Counselling Diploma. My method of counselling provides the honesty and openness which allows you to find trust in yourself and the wonderful liberation this brings.
I currently work for CrossReach counselling and LGBTHealth meeting people who come with a unique set of issues to take forward. I focus principally on the present and the future whilst recognising the influence the past has on us. I have training in mindfulness which is about using the present as a way to deflect negative or obsessive thinking, but I will always be guided by the direction you want to go in, not by a prescribed set of questions or techniques which must be followed. You are the expert in yourself and you have the capacity to make whatever change is going to best serve you.
