About me

Health, finances, relationships, career, family, fitness and unexpected change – life can get complicated.

Clients come to see me when they want fast, effective results with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, trauma (PTSD), autism awareness and relationship re-thinks.

The main Healthy Chat practice is now fully online - accessible from anywhere in the UK (and overseas). Your therapy session will be on Zoom, Skype or FaceTime (or phone if necessary) - whatever works best for you.

Over many years I've noticed that clients are almost always more resourced for the changes they want to see in their life than they first think. Sometimes it's just the opportunity to borrow a brain for an hour, while they talk through how they most want their story to unfold that gets a person quickly re-focussed and back on track.

Through Healthy Chat you can have life-changing conversations using Human Givens psychotherapy and counselling: it's fast and effective, with most people as resourced as they want to be in around 4-6 sessions (sometimes less, occasionally a few more). It puts your time and money investments in context when you get back to living your life quickly and confidently in such a short timeframe.

As a qualified Human Givens Therapist and a trained Executive Coach, I've been grateful to spend nearly 20 years supplying life-changing conversations to people from all walks of life, with a vast array of skills and resourcefulness, and with a colourful range of dreams and desired outcomes.

What you get from me
: fast, effective and practical therapeutic conversations & outcomes. A Healthy Chat can take one of 3 forms:

  • Therapy: relief from depression, anxiety, panic attacks, trauma, phobias, addiction, divorce complexities, stress and poor sleep.
  • Counselling: equipping you for strong relationships, successful marriage, healthy divorce, blended or extended families, new parenting, parenting teenagers, parenting autistic spectrum children, empty nesting, career change, business growth, fitness or sporting high performance, wholesome bereavement & happy retirement.
  • Coaching: for personal and professional ongoing high achieving: inspiring you to show up in a bigger way at home, at work, and for yourself; exploring your relationship with risk and how to trustingly face life full on; choosing the experiences you want in your future; adding meaning to ambition; staying happy, healthy and on plan for your future.

If what you read here sounds like it's what you're looking for, get in touch now by email or phone: you can book a first session today; or request a 15-minute initial phone call so I can answer any questions you might still have.

I look forward to hearing from you.

When considering the value of these sessions it might help for you to know that Human Given's therapy is recognised as a fast and effective brief therapy. Most clients who work with me are complete in 4-6 sessions. I hope you'll find that re-assuring when you compare it to:
* how long you've been suffering / compromising up until now
* how quickly you could feel better

Change is easier than you think
Most people can be helped in 4-6 sessions, although some people only need one or two and others with more complex difficulties may require more.

There is no need for you to commit to multiple therapy or counselling sessions. When you're resourced and equipped for your next chapter (work, life, relationship, parenting, health, emotions, sleep, school, uni - whatever), that's you complete.

My aim is to help you in as few sessions as possible.

Feedback from some recent Healthy Chat clients:

  • “After years of anxiety and irrational thoughts I made a phone call to Jennifer, made an appointment and couldn’t believe the change (even after 1 session) that she helped me achieve.” - Peter, Aberdeenshire (4 sessions)
  • “Having seen Jennifer 4 times, twice with my husband and twice alone, I cannot express enough how much she helped save our marriage. We were at a crisis point and without her help I’m not sure we would have managed to move forward..” - Christine, Edinburgh (4 sessions)
  • “The strategies she gave my son were simple for him to manage and he began using them right away.” Natalie, Fife (2 sessions)
  • "By the second session I was equipped with enough ways to deal with my panic and anxiety and combined with some positive life changes that were encouraged gradually, I saw improvements in my condition much faster than the medication I was on.." Liam, Aberdeen (3 sessions)
  • “Healthy Chat helped to reframe me, my family and my work. I’ve found it an amazing process to go through these conversations.” - Elliot, (3 sessions)
