About me

For sure, life can get complicated. Health, finances, relationships, career, family, fitness, choices and unexpected change – more than ever before these can drift out of control over time, impacting your ability to think clearly and move confidently through life (and it's not just you - this happens to all of us at some point ... the question is ... 'so now what?').

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

My private practice is called Healthy Chat and I my work with clients is now predominantly online - which means a session can be booked from wherever you are in the UK or overseas. Your therapy session will be on Zoom (or could be FaceTime or phone if preferred - whatever works best for you). If you particularly want to be seen face-to-face, my home-office is in Angus, Scotland and you can request further information on that when we speak.

Over many years of talking with hundreds of clients of all ages and from all walks of life, I've noticed that people 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 that gets a person quickly re-focussed and back on track. Often a few extra tools and life skills can make all the difference. 

Your Healthy Chat therapy or coaching session will be with me, Jennifer, using Human Givens psychotherapy and counselling: it's fast and effective, with most people being as equipped as they want to be in around 4-6 sessions (sometimes less in 2-3 sessions, occasionally a few more if circumstances are complicated). It puts your time and money investments in context when you know you could get back to living your life, confidently and to the full, in such a short timeframe.

As a qualified Human Givens Therapist and a trained Executive Coach, I've been grateful to spend over 20 years supplying life-changing conversations to people from all walks of life, who have a vast array of skills and resourcefulness, and a colourful range of dreams and things they want to achieve in their lifetime.

Healthy Chats are fast, effective and practical therapeutic conversations designed to equip you with greater mental and emotional skills. They can take one of 3 forms:

  • Therapy: relief from depression, anxiety, panic attacks, trauma, phobias, divorce complexities, narcissistic abuse, stress and poor sleep.
  • Counselling: equipping you for strong relationships, successful marriage, healthy divorce, blended or extended families, confident parenting, raising neuro-divergent children, empty nesting, career change,  wholesome bereavement & happy retirement.
  • Coaching: for personal, professional and sporting ongoing high achieving: inspiring you to show up in a bigger way at home, at work (corporately or as a business owner), and for yourself; exploring your relationship with risk and how to trustingly face life with confidence; choosing the experiences you want in your future; adding meaning to ambition; staying happy, healthy and on plan for what you want to be, do and have.

If what you read here sounds like it's what you're looking for,  then email or text me now. From there we'll get a quick first chat scheduled (15-minutes, no charge) so I can understand a little of what you'd like to see change, and you can ask any questions you might still then 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 consider it alongside:

* how long you've been suffering or 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 need only 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. We'll book them in one at a time. When you feel 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)
