Jennifer Thomas MA, MEd, Dip.CBT, MBACP
Life can be challenging at times and it can be difficult to make sense of what’s happening to us. Sometimes events from the past can trip us up unexpectedly, too. We can struggle to understand our thoughts, feelings and behaviours but counselling can help by enabling us to consider things from a different perspective, moving us on from repetitive cycles of thinking.
As we are all unique, I adapt my approach to individual needs and to take into account what you want from counselling. My years as a teacher have been followed by many counselling hours within the NHS system, with Rape and Sexual Abuse (RASA) Merseyside and in private practice. I therefore have experience of working with clients who have brought a wide range of issues, including anger, anxiety, depression, fear, loss, low self-esteem, PTSD and abuse in its many forms.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified and experienced counsellor, with qualifications in Person-Centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I am trained to deliver Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), which is recommended by the health advisory body NICE and by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as a treatment for trauma. I regularly participate in training opportunities such as hypnotherapy, inner child work and safeguarding. I am also qualified to practice the Rewind Technique.
I am a member of the BACP and adhere to BACP ethical guidelines. I am also a member of the EMDR Association UK and Ireland.
