About me

A heartfelt welcome. My name is Jean Williams MBACP a qualified Integrative Counsellor in Ashford. My practice is close to Ashford, Twickenham, Staines-Upon-Thames, Sunbury, Egham, Richmond, and surrounding areas.

During these difficult times, it is business as usual. I recognise there may be times over the coming weeks when people are unable to meet for Counselling. I welcome online or telephone sessions.

My counselling practice is still available and I will continue to provide counselling support. This may be face to face, Zoom, Skype (free to download and use), or telephone counselling. Please contact me for a Free thirty minute session.


I have worked with people for many years and have witnessed their struggles as well as my own. Anxiety, adult bullying, relationships, family issues, work-related issues, loss, bereavement, grief, self-esteem, are all problems that we face along the way. Certainly, there are times when everyone experiences difficult, distressing feelings that interfere with everyday life and relationships, confiding in friends or family members just doesn’t feel right.

Perhaps somewhere along the way you got lost in a career, anxiety, bullying, parenthood, relationships, ill health, loss or grief, or any number of life's difficulties and it has left you feeling like you don’t know who you are or what you want anymore? Or perhaps you are struggling to move on from a traumatic event or memory and no matter what you try, you can’t let it go?

I know that it can be daunting to take the first steps towards making changes in your life; sometimes facing difficulties can feel distressing or frightening. I acknowledge this and I want to encourage you that just recognising that you could do with some support – is a strength in itself.

Be encouraged.

I am a fully qualified Counselling Professional with 30 years of experience in helping people. I am a compassionate person who is passionate about empowering people to find the answers that are right for them and helping them to develop the skills, knowledge, and experiences needed to achieve change.

I warmly invite you to contact me to see how we could work together.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Wheelchair user access

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.
