Jennifer McCabe L.LB (Hons), PG Dip Psych (Oxon), MBACP.
I have many years of experience of working with people who have reached a crisis and who have turned to me for help. I am a therapist who will take great interest in you and will want to hear about all aspects of your life and how your personal difficulties are getting in the way. I have an innate ability to put people at ease even if you are having the worst time in your life.
I underwent a rigorous training which focused on investigating the possible root causes of psychological problems such as anxiety or depression. When thinking together about why you feel the way you do about certain events or people in your life, we might make links from the past which helps make sense of what is happening in your life now. It is by gaining this greater understanding that you can begin to make real choices in your life that could make the difference between existing day-today, and living a more fulfilling life.
Free advice on finding the right therapist for you
My way of working isn't right for everyone which is why I offer a free initial session. This will give us an opportunity to get to know each other a bit so you can decide whether you want to start having regular weekly therapy sessions with me, or whether you need to find someone with a different approach. It is important that we both feel that we can work well together, so I will offer advice on different types of therapy you might consider. If you do decide to take things forward with me, we can meet for a minimum of six weekly sessions to focus on a particular problem, or you may want longer if, for example, trusting people is something you find takes a bit more time.
I am happy deal with initial enquiries by email or phone, whichever is best for you.
Training, qualifications & experience
L.LB (Hons) and Diploma Legal Practice (College of Law, London)
Post Graduate Certificate in Psychodynamic Counselling (Oxford University).
Post Graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Practice (Masters programme) Oxford University.
I am currently undertaking an Infant Observation with The British Psychotherapy Foundation.
I am a Counsellor at The Riverside Counselling Service, I also work with young people in schools and colleges for which I have undergone BACP accredited competency training.
I have worked with clients who have a range of diagnoses, including those with high functioning Aspergers. I also have experience of working with people with addictions and eating disorders, people who have difficulties with relationships at work and in social settings, as well as clients who simply feel lost, depressed and/or suicidal.
Although I have many years of experience of working with people who have experienced traumatic events such as sexual abuse, coercive control and violence. I truly believe that qualifications and experience are less important than the innate qualities of the therapist to engage with patients in this unique and rewarding work.
