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)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
