I'm Jen Brown - Step-By-Step Counselling & Therapies, a professional Person-Centred and Integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist, Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist, EMDR Therapist and Holistic Therapist, holding a Level 5 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, Advanced Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy, Diploma in NLP and qualifications in CBT, EMDR Therapy, Mindfulness and Holistic Therapies.
I have been a therapist in Bridgnorth, Shropshire since 2009 and have built a thriving private practice with clients often contacting me on recommendation of my services. I have extensive experience working with adults, teenagers, couples and families, am employed part-time as a School Counsellor and offer private counselling, psychotherapy, CBT, bereavement counselling, EMDR therapy, hypnotherapy and holistic therapies from my confidential therapy room. This private and tranquil space is based in Oldbury Wells, Bridgnorth, Shropshire and is easily accessible from, Shrewsbury, Telford, Ludlow, Wolverhampton, Kidderminster, Cleobury Mortimer, Dudley, Much Wenlock, Broseley and the surrounding areas. I offer my therapies both face-to-face and online via Skype, FaceTime, WhatsApp Video Call, Zoom, Teams and of course via telephone.
I work flexible hours, with both daytime, evening and weekend appointments, work closely with local GP Practices receiving regular referrals and accommodate private healthcare referrals. I also offer bespoke corporate packages to organisations and businesses and provide Supervision to other Counsellors/Therapists and Counselling/Therapy to training student Counsellors.
I also work with Perry & Phillips Funeral Directors, Bridgnorth, to offer a free bereavement counselling service and support. Weekly 'supportive chats' and monthly 'group bearevement counselling sessions' can be of great support at such a difficult time. During the current COVID-19 restrictions, these group sessions are not taking place - instead I am contacting those in need of support by telephone or video call.
Person-Centred/Integrative Counselling/Psychotherapy/CBT, provides a safe space for you to be understood, respected, and listened to empathically without judgement. A range of theories and modalities such as; Person-Centred/Humanistic Therapy, CBT, EMDR Therapy, Mindfulness, Solution-Focused Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Psychodynamic, meditation/relaxation techniques, may be used to provide the right therapy for you.
Bereavement Counselling, offers a safe place to explore your feelings and thoughts following the loss of a loved one. Working together, we can explore coping strategies and techniques to help you come to terms with your loss, in time, and find a way forward. This is a respectful service, taking into consideration the appropriate pace for you. EMDR Therapy and Hypnotherapy are also available, if considered beneficial.
EMDR Therapy facilitates the desensitisation of traumatic memories, cognitive restructuring and significant reduction in symptoms through accessing and re-processing target issues whilst completing sets of bilateral stimulation through rhythmical eye, auditory or kinaesthetic movements.
As an experienced Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist you can be assured of being guided through the EMDR process at a safe pace for you. Multiple sessions will be required, depending on the trauma issue, to achieve effective results over an appropriate time frame.
Hypnotherapy is an effective form of therapy used to treat conditions, issues or change unhelpful habits. It harnesses the power of suggestion to encourage positive change, whilst the client is in an ‘altered state of awareness and relaxation’. I offer single sessions and also Hypnotherapy Programmes, which are a set number of sessions of Hypnotherapy, Counselling, Psychotherapy and specific strategies and techniques. Programmes include: 'Anxiety and Stress Relief'', Confidence and Self-Esteem Building', 'Sleep Well', 'IBS Relief', 'Beat Your Phobia', 'Alcohol Awareness', ‘Stop Smoking’, ‘Weight-Loss’ and 'Gastric Band Weight-Loss'.
Hypnotherapy mp3 audio recordings are also available to download from my website. These have been specifically created to aid relaxation and sleep, help alleviate anxiety, stress and tension and improve overall well-being. Please see my website for further information.
Holistic Therapies - reiki and reiki crystal healing are complementary/holistic, energy-based healing therapies which support and encourages natural self-healing abilities; whilst promoting a feeling of deep relaxation, harmony and well-being. These relaxing treatments can be combined with counselling/psychotherapy for a truly holistic approach to improve your well-being. Please see my website www.reiki-roots.co.uk for further information.
Challenges & issues worked with:
Anxiety, stress, depression, abuse, addictions, anger management, trauma, PTSD, bereavement/grief/loss, relationship issues, eating disorders, OCD, low self esteem/self confidence, weight loss, phobias, quit smoking, IBS, insomnia, public speaking, exam/driving performance, pain management etc - please see my website; www.stepbystepcounselling.co.uk.
To be a member of these professional bodies, therapists have had to meet very high standards and are bound by the BACP ethical framework and code which safeguards and protects both the client and the Counsellor. In line with my professional Code of Practice, I receive excellent supervision on a monthly basis, to discuss my work to ensure best practice; thus ensuring ethical and professional standards are maintained in accordance with BACP Ethical Framework, GHR, GHSC, CNHC and UKRF regulations. The identity of all my clients remains confidential throughout the supervision process. I also undertake continued professional development (CPD) to develop new skills to further benefit clients and maintain my BACP, GHR, GHSC, CNHC and UKRF Registered Membership status.
My therapy room:
I offer counselling, psychotherapy, CBT, bereavement counselling, EMDR therapy, hypnotherapy and holistic therapies from my Bridgnorth private therapy room - a warm, confidential, relaxing, smoke free and safe space. My ground floor therapy room is just a short walk from Bridgnorth High Town, is serviced by local bus routes and is easily accessible, with ample free and private car parking. Please contact me for full address/directions and view my website for photographs of my comfortable and confidential therapy space.
I offer face-to-face therapy, however, if Covid concerns/distance/travel/mobility is an issue for you, I also offer therapy via Skype, FaceTime, WhatsApp Video Call, Zoom, Teams and via telephone.
I work flexible hours to accommodate circumstances and lifestyle, and are happy to offer concessionary rates where needed.
Monday - Friday 9am to 9pm
Saturday - 10am-5pm
Confidentiality is paramount. I treat all information disclosed to me by you as confidential. However, if I believe that you are in danger of harming yourself or others, or that a child is at risk, I reserve the right to inform outside agencies - I would, wherever possible, discuss this with you first. If you disclose information about terrorist or criminal offences I have a professional obligation to tell outside agencies.
So what to do next?
Sometimes acknowledging you may need support is the hardest step. The next step is to ask.
Please feel free to contact me via email, text or call me on 07967797786 for an informal chat to discuss any aspects of the therapies I offer. Should you then decide if therapy with Step-By-Step Counselling & Therapies is right for you we can arrange your initial assessment and therapy session at my private practice, or via Skype, FaceTime, WhatsApp Video Call, Zoom, Teams or telephone. Your enquiry will be treated in the strictest confidence. I sincerely hope I can be part ofyour journey.
