Jennie Geddes BA (hons), Dip.Couns, MBACP (Accred)
I qualified as a counsellor in 2000, starting with a firm base in person-centred practice. Since then I have developed my work to integrate trauma theory, Motivational Interviewing and a Human Rights approach. I have experience in supporting people through long- and short-term therapy contracts, with experience in areas including: personal growth, trans-cultural work, anxiety, recovery from abuse, relationship issues, CPTSD and PTSD.
I offer short and long term work, couples and one-to-one therapy, face-to-face or online via Skype and Zoom.
I offer both group and individual supervision sessions to counsellors and other workers who require clinical supervision, having 12 years experience of working with organisations and individuals in areas including: early trauma, PTSD, refugees and people seeking asylum, sexual health and homelessness.
I am passionate about working with people and supporting people to grow and manage their lives in an ever-changing and ever-challenging world.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
