About me

By offering a non-judgemental and genuine space I hope to empower you to make decisions about how you live a life that is 'right' for you.

Hello, my name is Jennifer - thank you for visiting my page. I offer a warm, supportive and encouraging space where we can explore your thoughts and feelings together.

People come to counselling for a very diverse range of reasons and everyone's experience of counselling differs because of this. Some people come to talk about specific problems such as depression, relationship issues, anxiety, bereavement etc. Others come with no sense of what is wrong, they just feel that something isn't right.

The counselling space can give you the opportunity to gain a deeper insight into your relationships and why you behave in the way that you do. It's a space where you can look back at the past and look forward to the future.
Perhaps most importantly it gives you an opportunity to be really listened to without advice giving and opinions.

A common thread in my work is helping people to realise their potential, whether on a personal level or in a work/career capacity. It is often the case that we feel held back by other people in our lives, by society as a whole or by our own negative beliefs about ourselves. The counselling space can give you time to reflect on the way you want to live.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor with a BSc. honours degree in Integrative counselling.
I am also a fully qualified Psychosexual therapist.

Being an Integrative counsellor means that I believe certain counselling styles suit some people more than others. I, therefore, draw from a range of approaches to provide the right support for you.

My experience as a counsellor has been extremely varied and has given me the opportunity to work with a diverse range of people.

Previously I have worked within the mental health sector with the charity 'MIND' and within Camden 'Women and Health'.
I have also worked at the student counselling service at Glasgow University.

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.
