About me

I have a safe secure counselling room in the Eastleigh area, alternatively I am happy to travel to you to meet your needs in the comfort of your own home.  I have a successful private practice which I established in 2015. I am dynamic in my way of working and am non-judgemental. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy,  fully insured and hold an enhanced DBS certificate.

Alongside my private practice I currently work for a local charity providing counselling to young people aged 11 to 19. I also provide counselling for a local cancer charity offering counselling to family members of young people with a cancer diagnosis attached to the Piam Brown ward at Southampton General Hospital. Continuing professional development is important to me and I have recently finished studying a Level 6 in Supervision.

If you have any queries please contact me by phone, email or through my website www.jenniferbuftoncounselling.com I will offer a free 30 minute consultation for you to explore how I can help, giving you information about me and how I work.

Member organisations


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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
