Jayne Welsh B.A., PG Dip., MSc, MBACP, BPC
As well as a career coach, I am a qualified psychotherapist, a registered member of the BACP and the BPC and have an MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have worked as a voluntary psychotherapist in the NHS and in a community charity. I am experienced in dealing with work-related difficulties and performing under pressure and am interested in the interaction between individual stress, psychological disturbance and organisational dynamics. In my work I have assisted with a range of issues including stress management, anxiety, depression, relationship problems and life transitions.
I work in a psychodynamic way, enabling clients to explore and link past with present experiences and address past unresolved conflicts. This can create lasting behavioural change and better informed choices. I have a particular interest in trauma, OCD, abuse, loss (bereavement, redundancy), and self-harm (substance abuse, eating disorders). I have experience of working with a range of difficulties including borderline and narcissistic personality disorders and can provide both short-term and longer-term counselling.

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.
