Jay Treryth - Counsellor and Psychotheraptist
Hi, I’m Jay, a counsellor & psychotherapist based in St Austell, Cornwall. I work from quiet & comfortable counselling office in St Austell and online through video calls.
As a private practitioner I can work with you on a variety of issues, including anxiety, depression & family issues for as long as you need. I aim to offer counselling tailored to your particular needs, for one-to-one therapy, and for couples.
Whether you are seeking support working through a crisis or looking for a longer journey to find answers to your questions it's useful to have someone to go with you on that journey.
I love working with people to help them reshape their lives into what they want them to be, as they imagine them. I believe that we can work together to understand what things in your life contribute to your well-being. And I also believe that understanding why the things that don't contribute to your well-being are still valuable parts of you that have something important to say.
Whether you want to look at something in your past, or something in the present, I can promise you the chance to look at it without judgement. I can promise you honesty as we work together.
I work with a humanistic, integrated approach, designed to allow development of each individual part of a person. My approach incorporates concepts from a variety of counselling approaches including cognitive behavioural therapy, gestalt & transpersonal theories so it is always tailored to each client, whether you need to work on your thoughts, your feelings or your spirit.
Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified as a counsellor with a CPCAB Diploma from the well regarded Devon and Cornwall Counselling Hub.
I continued studying there for a Level 5 Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling, to enable me to work with clients who need a higher level of support or long-term work.
I've done volunteer work Freshfields in Truro (Part of St Petrocs), working with addicts after they have been through rehab to help them rebuild their lives and prevent relapses.
I have training in working with gender diversity and experience working with Trans people. As a part of the LGBT+ community, I am passionate about working with other members of the community who might feel uncertain or vulnerable when considering counselling.
I am a registered CPCAB tutor, teaching counselling skills & theory for students preparing to become counsellors, and a diploma course for those who have chosen to become counsellors.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I ask for £45 for a normal 60-minute counselling session.
If you would like to meet for longer sessions we can discuss an appropriate rate.
I offer a discounted rate between £35 and £45 per session for people on low incomes. My hope is that by offering this reduced rate I can make counselling available to people who might not otherwise be able to have weekly sessions.
I do not ask for any documents or evidence to qualify for this discount. I believe my clients are able to make this judgement for themselves and deal with me honestly.
I am able to visit you at home for our sessions when needed. This must be agreed in advance and is subject to you having a suitable home environment for counselling work.
For home visits there can be a travel cost of on top of any session fee. Any locations more than a 20 minute drive from St Austell the travel fee is £20 on top of any session fees.
