Jennifer Chilcott MBACP
As part of increased demand for counselling services, as of January 2018 I shall be extending my counselling services to 2 new locations in Dorchester and Taunton.
I offer counselling support to individuals in a safe and confidential space where you can explore whatever you may have brought you to seek sessions at the time. It could be a major trauma in your life, or struggling with a personality issues or just feeling unhappy and distressed with life in general.
I have worked within the counselling field for 20 years and have experience of working with those experiencing suicidal thoughts, those within the confines of the prison service, those who have been bereaved and youth within FE setting.
As a counsellor I offer an empathic non-judgement environment for you to come and talk about what anxieties you may be experiencing in your life.
The initial appointment gives you the opportunity to meet me, to talk about what has prompted you to seek counselling and to decide if counselling is for you. It is the time when you will be able to ask any questions you may have about the service I am offering.
I am a member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists(BACP) and adhere to their Ethical Framework of Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have been trained as an Integrative counsellor and work essentially in a person centred approach.
In accordance with ethical and legal requirements for professional practice I have regular clinical supervision for my clinical work and maintain my professional standards by participating in 30 hours Continued Professional Development annually.
I work with individuals both long term and short term
I hold PPI insurance to work with my client base.
Please feel free to contact me by telephone or email. I would be happy to talk to you about any questions you may have.
