- Fed up of feeling like this?
- Not sure where to turn?
- Need to do something, but not sure what?
Hello, I’m Jennifer and I can help. Working together will give you a safe space to explore your feelings and work through your problems with a qualified professional counsellor. I’m passionate about how counselling can change lives. I’ll listen without judgement and won’t tell you what to do, but can support you working out what you want to change.
Whatever is going on in your life or is affecting you, coming to counselling can help you find a solution. I’ve helped people with anxiety, panic attacks, shame, guilt, depression, grief, isolation, relationship breakdown, work problems, family illness, ill health, stress, bereavement, chronic pain, separation anxiety as well as those struggling with autism, bipolar and generalised anxiety disorder.
Whilst some clients have a formal diagnosis, others are looking to explore themselves further, and perhaps make sense of feelings or past experiences. Maybe there’s something niggling at you causing you unhappiness and you're feeling sad or maybe you’re a counselling student needing therapy as part of your studies. Whatever has brought you to read this page I’d be happy to discuss it with you.
As well as offering counselling in rooms in both Shrewsbury and Telford I can also work with you outdoors here in Shropshire. We’ve some amazing parks, woodlands and open spaces locally and Ecotherapy can add another element to counselling giving you the opportunity to look at things in different ways.
Drop me and email, or give me a call and let's see how we might work together.
