Jennifer Davis, MBACP, Dip Integrative Psychosynthesis Counselling
Are you struggling to feel okay enough just to keep going? Are you looking for somewhere to take a troubling or painful aspect of your life? Or perhaps things that seemed important to you don’t have meaning any more. Maybe you want to have a fresh look at the direction in which you’re heading – or to check out if there is a direction for you to head in.
What might I, as a therapist, have to offer you?
A different quality of attention, a different kind of being heard...
Who am I?
Hello, my name is Jennifer. I am a BACP registered counsellor, based in Sudbury, Suffolk C010 – where I have a discreet and confidential private practice.
In my counselling work, I have been privileged to witness incredible growth in clients, many of whom had given up on the idea of self-acceptance. There are parallels between tending to the needs of plants and people. And I believe passionately in the power of both to flourish, given the right conditions.
My approach draws on many different schools of therapy (some of which are outlined further down this page) but is based in compassion; both for self and others.
Some of the issues I can support you with:
Our work together may include giving space to your heartbreak and grief, fear and anxiety, feelings of depression, sadness and anger. We might explore finding meaning in your life and managing transitions such as relationships ending, mid life and getting older.
My experience includes working with all types of loss - including loss through bereavement and loss of belonging; suicidal thoughts and feelings; and helping to create an environment that may lead to greater acceptance, understanding and compassion for different parts of your self.
You may be exhausted from 'being strong', holding secrets or feelings of shame and guilt. Whatever you bring, I offer a confidential, supportive and non-judgmental space where we can look at what is troubling you.

Do get in touch if you are considering counselling and would like to find out more. If you decide you would like to meet, we can arrange an exploratory first session to see if we might be a good fit to work together.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at the Re-Vision Centre for Counselling & Psychotherapy in North London and have a Diploma in Integrative Psychosynthesis Counselling. www.re-vision.org.uk
I have many years of experience of working with people struggling with feelings of low self-worth, loss, uncertainty, depression and despair. Prior to training as a psychotherapeutic counsellor, I was a palliative care volunteer, supporting people with life-limiting illness and also worked with the Samaritans.
My experience in life and in counselling is rich and varied. I draw on this experience to inform the counselling process and facilitate growth.
My work is:
- Person-centred, in that your needs and process forms the central thread of all the work.
- Psycho-dynamic, in taking seriously the way that formative past experiences influence our make-up.
- Cognitive, in considering and updating how you think about and construe your world.
- Relational, in believing that how we relate to each other (as therapist and client) may offer something of how you relate to others.
- Existential, in acknowledging the key questions about life and death.
- Transpersonal and holistic, in recognising that we are all an essential part of a larger whole and that our problems themselves may be the doorway into a wider and more enriching life.
