Jen Taylor, Counsellor and Accredited Emdr Europe Consultant and Supervisor
HOLISTIC COUNSELLOR for supporting you towards a more peaceful and creative life, by developing a more thorough understanding of yourself and others and learning of ways to increase confidence and genuine self-assuredness.
~ Do you feel that you have reached a crossroads and you are looking for support to try to work out some recent events or even something that happened long ago, but it's still with you?
With therapy we can process through these events that are now over and we can develop better ways of managing present situations
You may be looking for a way to resolve or just to let-go the effects of a traumatic situation, or you may just want someone uninvolved with your situation to share confidences and to exchange ideas with.
Perhaps you feel that it is time to find your drive or direction in life with life coaching.
You may want to talk deeper, about more personal issues.
Being a supportive therapist to me means being non-judgemental, friendly & approachable.
I recognise that your concerns are very important to you and I also recognise that your time is valuable. I aim to complete therapy with you in as short a time as possible leaving you with the techniques to go forward feeling more in control and happier with your life.
Confidentiality is assured (I work to BACP guidelines)
THE WAY I WORK:
I work intuitively, and in a relaxed manner so that you will feel at ease and comfortable.
I will listen to you very carefully and will hear you.
When you need me to, I will just listen, other times subtle cognitive therapy may interweave within our conversations and you may notice areas of thought that you had not previously realised; certain things may become highlighted and then these "aha" moments may help you to develop & gain the results you desire.
You may be looking for increased confidence, further insight or more self motivation to help you get to where you want to be.
- And if you are not sure where you are heading/ or where you want to go from here, then I will work with you to discover what your needs are.
TRAININGS OR COACHING:
Often clients ask for and benefit from Mindfulness training within the therapy sessions.
Confidence or Assertiveness Trainings are also available and designed to suit you, your requirements and your particular life situation.
Relaxation & Breath work can give huge benefits once it is properly understood and if relaxation is what is needed, I make sure that you fully understand the process theoretically and practically.
WHO DO I SEE:
I see any individual that is drawn to my profile and the way that I work, this includes couples, older children / adolescents & University Students. I see children and adults for EMDR therapy.

As well as Counselling other therapies are available if you would like.
Hypnotherapy is usually a preferred way to learn to relax and let-go. In this trance like state, the hypnotherapy talks to the subconscious levels, guiding the way to greater confidence or specified & wanted behaviour changes.
EMDR is the well known and evidence based specific trauma therapy as recommended by NICE
i recommend this for difficult areas, from combat stress to Ptsd or any difficulties of the past which involves unwanted flashback memories or interferences such as with sleep, eating, irritability.
or 'Metaphysical Counselling' involves a deeper reach to the fundamentals of life; such as understanding the inner meaning to your life's path and soul purpose. Lessons in Meditation are available. There is also spiritual healing using the theta brainwave. Some people like to take the opportunity to discuss & explore their thoughts life and it's meaning to the person. Often this comes up after a bereavement or other Loss.
Person centred Counselling allows the person 'to be themselves' knowing that they will not be judged and will be respected and held in high positive regard. Within this safe environment, it is more easy to recognise and to share our innermost feelings. We can then get a clearer idea of the way we need to move forward.
Sometimes called Client centred counselling, it recognises that it is the person themselves (the client) who is the only person to fully know what is the best step for them to take. Your counsellor supports you in this.
