Jeanette Al-Hariri MBACP (Accred) Counsellor, Psychotherapist, Supervisor
077 222 15364
Are you struggling with life at the moment? Could you benefit from a safe space to be really heard and explore your feelings? Taking this first step is hard, but in offering you that space, I can help you to overcome issues which feel challenging, difficult and perhaps hopeless.
I am an experienced counsellor and I work a great deal with anxiety, panic disorder and intrusive thoughts. Thoughts can trigger powerful emotions which can leave us feeling powerless and isolated, and perhaps no longer trusting in ourselves and our abilities. Whilst I don't have a magic wand, I believe that people have the answers within themselves; I will be alongside you and will support you in gaining fresh insights and a better understanding of your concerns.
I use a Person-Centred approach, but have also studied CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Gestalt Therapy and Mindfulness, therefore, the counselling that we embark upon will be tailored to your needs and which we can review together.
Please feel free to contact me either by telephone, email or text. If I cannot take your call then please leave a message and I will endeavour to respond to you within 24 hours. I am happy to have an informal chat about your counselling needs and I also offer the initial session/assessment free of charge. I offer this confidential counselling service from a quiet and private counselling room with free off road parking.

I am a Registered and Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I am fully committed to working within their ethical framework for good practice in counselling and psychotherapy.
I also work as a Clinical Supervisor being qualified to CPCAB Diploma Level 5.
In the past I counselled for 10 years on a voluntary basis for an agency specialising in Bereavement and Loss and have written and run workshops on bereavement and suicide risk. Additionally, I worked as a Lecturer teaching Person-Centred Counselling to students studying up to and including CPCAB Diploma Level 4.
I feel passionately about counselling and how it can make a real difference to peoples’ lives. I continue to study and attend workshops in order to broaden my knowledge and understanding.

Loss and Change
Many people think of the grieving process as something experienced only after a loved one has died. However, we also grieve for a multitude of reasons such as the end of a relationship, loss of good health, loss of employment, loss of a child leaving home, to name but a few... Whenever something meaningful is taken away from us we grieve. This grieving process can lead us to feel highly anxious, confused, where perhaps we have lost touch with our real self. Loss of self can feel very scary and isolating.
I have worked extensively in the area of bereavement and loss and I can help you to make sense of what you are experiencing and where new insights and possibilities can emerge in a world that is ever changing.
I charge £40 for a 50 minute session but I am happy to discuss concessions at the initial free assessment.
