About me

Hi, my name is Jennifer. I am a fully qualified counsellor and I work with Person Centred and Cognitive Behavioural approaches.

I am based in the Ormskirk area and I offer individual therapy.  Therapy can be offered as face to face in an office setting, Walk & Talk sessions outdoors, which is helpful for working with many issues such as anxiety and anxiety based conditions such as Generalised Anxiety Disorder and Social Anxiety. It is also helpful for people suffering from depression, stress and panic attacks. I also work with clients using Zoom and telephone sessions, which is useful if you are unable to get out.

I am experienced in working with people who have suffered domestic abuse and difficult relationships. I work with anxiety and anxiety based issues. I also work with people who may have low self esteem and low confidence.     

I have experience and knowledge of living with ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia conditions plus long term chronic pain having been diagnosed with both over 10 years ago and also suffering injury at work. Living with long term chronic health conditions can be mentally debiliatating as well as physically and can be difficult to come to terms with. If you are struggling with this, counselling can be of benefit.

If you feel that you are unhappy and things keep going wrong yet you can't figure out why, counselling can help you to move forward and can help you find your own solutions that will work and are right for you.  

If you are wondering what counselling is and whether or not it will be helpful to your particular issue, you can contact me for a free 20 minute chat to discuss your queries or concerns. Please leave a message and I will call you back.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
