Training, qualifications & experience

Hello, my name is Jennifer, and welcome to 'your safe space'
Feeling truly heard, and listened to can make the difference to help you explore what is happening for you right now, and to you getting to know and understand yourself to do things differently.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP); and I adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. Being an integrative counsellor means I have a client-centred approach to counselling.  I am trained in different modalities -  and this means working with you collaboratively we can tailor the right intervention which supports your process; providing an opportunity for you to develop a stronger ‘sense of self’; supporting you to recognise your own attitudes, feelings and behaviour; and empowering you to find your own true positive ‘self’ and reach your full potential.

I do this by creating a consistent, appropriate safe, non-judgemental environment; where you will experience my communicating congruence (genuineness), empathy, and unconditional positive regard towards you. The non-directive approach I use enables you to find your own solutions to your problems and concerns.

Confidentiality: our therapeutic relationship is built on trust; the foundation that  is fundamental to your process of healing, your growth, your personal development.

I too, am committed to continuing my personal and professional development  - I am currently in the 2nd year of a Doctoral program in Existential Psychotherapy and Counselling at the NSPC/ Middlesex University.

I have previously worked for -  The Priory | The NHS | The Probation Service | Primary and Secondary Schools | Drug and Alcohol Service | Mental Health

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accredited register membership

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
