About me

We all need help at some point in our lives, and it demonstrates strength and courage to recognise it and seek the right person to offer that support.

Hi, my name is Jemima and as a qualified counsellor I provide both short- and long-term counselling to adults of all ages, offering face-to-face or online sessions. I am based in both York and Pickering, North Yorkshire. I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, and abide by their code of ethics.

My roots are in person-centred talking therapy, but as an experienced integrative counsellor I can offer a somatic-informed approach to our counselling sessions if desired. This incorporates awareness of sensations and feelings in your body, and how they connect to your thoughts, emotions and past experiences. It can help you feel safe in your body, while exploring trauma, stress, anxiety and other mental health issues, and can help when feeling overwhelmed, dysregulated or numb. However, as an integrative counsellor I work collaboratively with clients to provide a technique which works for them, to ensure they feel safe, supported and can make sense of themselves and the world around them.

Finding a counsellor whom you have a good gut instinct about is so important, and as your counsellor I will see you, hear you, help you feel safe and supported; so that together we can work towards helping you move forward in a positive way. It is my aim to help you feel empowered, strong and resilient.

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.
