CBT Therapist | BABCP Accred | Counselling Psychology MSc

About me

Hi, I’m Jen, an experienced, dedicated and highly qualified Cognitive Behaviour Psychotherapist. CBT is my main theoretical model along with Counselling. This being complimented by other approaches such as Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness. I use these methods, along with many other influences and inspirations, to help clients achieve greater wellbeing. We can accomplish this by working through anxiety difficulties such as Worry, Panic Attacks, Social Anxiety, Stress, Depression and low mood, Trauma, OCD, Low Self Esteem and many more. I work with adults (18+) in Leicestershire, both in person, and online, if preferred.

I strive to be creative and flexible; responding to you as a unique individual and what you bring, for a bespoke approach. Ultimately I hope to work alongside you, helping you to grow towards your goals. In order to foster a warm therapeutic relationship, featuring support, understanding and compassion, it is vital to feel comfortable and safe with your therapist.

From the first full length session, we will work at identifying what you would like to work through.

There will be provision of relevant information and resources, with exploration of your background, and the developing of our understanding of how your difficulties are maintaining themselves.

We will think together about what you would like to be different within your life after therapy and also balance this with what may be realistic.

We will also set up tasks for you to work on between sessions, helping you move towards your aims.

Normally we will agree to between 6 and 20 sessions, but this also depends on you, the nature of the problem, and your goals.

For longer term or more complex issues, we can consider a greater number of sessions.

Sessions take place in person, at pleasant, comfortable and modern consulting rooms, or if preferred, online.
