About me

Hello, I'm Jen, a qualified and experienced counsellor and supervisor based in Garmouth, Moray.

I completed my training in Person Centred Counselling in 2006 at The University of Aberdeen and my training in Counselling Supervision in 2010 at Strathclyde University.

I have always been interested in people and how they make sense of their experiences, cope with life's challenges, thrive and heal, and I have always felt drawn to working with people facing adversity. This has resulted in me having a fulfilling career working with young people and adults in a variety of settings and working to overcome an extensive number of challenging life issues.

I have witnessed and experienced the positive impact of a safe counselling relationship on the lives of many people, including myself.

My approach is integrative. My core values are all about empowerment, respect and autonomy and this fits beautifully with my counselling role. Counselling offers you dedicated time to be heard.

For an initial conversation, please get in touch via landline, mobile or email and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

I am a Registered Individual Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and as such, I abide by its Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. I am also fully insured.
