About me

Information About Me

Hello my name is Jenni and welcome to my counselling service, All Ears Counselling Ltd (www.allearscounselling.co.uk)

For the past three years, I have been building my private practice in South Chailey and I currently enjoy working with Adults throughout East and West Sussex across a wide and varying range of issues. In addition, I also work alongside the wonderful charity Oscars Wish Foundation, offering bereavement counselling support to couples and families who have sadly experienced babyloss at any gestation including IVF, miscarriage, stillbirth and neo natal death.

Prior to becoming a Counsellor, my early working years were spent in publishing, marketing and advertising.  In later years, whilst raising my family, I began working at a local school for the disabled, which I found immensely rewarding and gave me the experience of caring for others and meeting families whose personal situations were incredibly difficult and challenging.

Counselling has been invaluable in my own life and experiencing how supporting and life changing counselling can be, I began my professional training 8 years ago, qualifying in a BACP approved Counselling Diploma.  After working with a number of charities as a volunteer counsellor, I opened in private practice to continue my Counselling career.

I appreciate how overwhelming modern daily life can sometimes feel, pressures from work, demands from family,  relationships, financial pressures, our concerns for the world's environment and society pressures.  We receive constant news updates from technology and social media and

In recent years the possibility for a 24-hour on-line lifestyle has led to a culture of constantly 'switched on', inhibiting our ability to 'switch off'.  On-line judging and shaming have increased general levels of low self-worth.  How easy it is to fall into the pattern of coping, whilst underneath sensing an increasing struggle to keep on top, telling the world 'I'm fine' or 'I'm ok'.  

The world moves fast and it's easy for us to ignore the niggling stress signals and carrying on as usual often seems like the most tempting option.  Teaching my clients how to slow down and take notice of what in their life is affecting their wellbeing is important.  Helping them to find new ways to think, feel, communicate and behave differently contributes to their change.  As a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor, I offer impartiality and work using a number of different psychotherapies and styles, meaning I am able to tailor your therapy to suit your individual needs and recognise when to work gently or perhaps more challenging and to a pace that suits you. I provide a welcoming, comfortable, safe and private space for you to talk confidentially about whatever your struggles or difficulties may be.

I believe that everybody has the potential to grow and change.  It's possible to get rid of unhelpful habits and remove deeply embedded shame from the past.  It's possible to improve communication and relationships in life and increasing our self-esteem.

Located in South Chailey, I welcome people from all neighbouring areas including Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill, Uckfield, Lewes, Newick, Plumpton, Cooksbridge and Crawley amongst others.

To begin your counselling journey, I will invite you for an initial assessment, which gives us both the opportunity to meet.  At the assessment I will run through some medical and family history questions and explain in further detail about what you can expect from the sessions.  This also gives you the opportunity to ask me any questions with no obligation to book.  Working in blocks of 6 sessions, the overall number of counselling sessions will be dependent on your individual needs and will be covered at the assessment.

Counselling sessions with me are currently £40, duration 50 minutes.

The Assessment session is £10 and also 50 minutes.

If you are interested in any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me by phone, email or via my website.
