BACP M379328 (Hons) Senior Therapist and Trauma Specialist

About me

Hi, I'm Jenna, thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.

Writing your skills in a paragraph is difficult, but also important so that you know whether I am the right therapist for you. So I hope to answer any questions you may have about counselling and myself.

Working with me

I am a Senior Therapist and have 16 years field experience of working in high tier abuse and trauma.  I work with teens and adults. 

I have worked with Domestic Abuse, Child Sexual Abuse,  Human Trafficking, Perpetrators of Abuse and harm and in and around trauma for many, many years. 

I am not light in the ways in which I work, as trauma and anxiety take over peoples lives and superimpose themselves-making it hard for people to connect to themselves.

I will safely listen and offer you a healing space, so that you learn yourself. I will then be working you towards emotional regulation and using tools of Psych Education, so that you understand yourself emotionally. 

*If you feel stuck

*Are a people pleaser at the expense of the self.

*Facilitate your own patterns and cycles of toxic habitual behaviours 

*Have difficulties in forming and maintaining relationships 

*Poor self worth 

*Stuck or detached from life 

*Anxiety taking over 

*Cant move past trauma and it continues to come into your awareness

*Harmful and entrenched thinking styles and patterns

Then I am the therapist for you.  I will be bringing in tools and I leave no stone un-turned, as I would not be serving you if I did. I will work you towards being present and learning yourself to the core-  knowledge is power over the self. 

If you are ready to go at depth with yourself and have a different relationship with life, one that allows you to be present and regulated, then I would be the therapist for you. 

Training, qualifications & experience

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

- Domestic Abuse
- Trafficking
- Exploitation

A lot of my work over the years has been in these areas. I’m currently working in a specialist domestic abuse role alongside my therapy work, and this is inclusive of training to professionals.
