About me

Hello, my name is Jenny. I am a qualified counsellor. I work from my private practice in Dawlish. My approach is predominantly Person Centred where I will provide a warm welcoming environment. I will listen without making any assumptions or judgement. My role is not to come up with the answers for you, but to support and walk along side you on your journey of change. I will help you find your own strategies, tools and coping skills to enable you to achieve positive growth and self-discovery.

I work with people who are having difficulties in areas such as anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, post traumatic stress disorder, sexual abuse,  addiction, OCD, eating disorders, LGBT related difficulties, gender dysphoria, relationship issues, loss, grief and bereavement.

I am a member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical framework. I receive the required amount of clinical supervision to ensure that my practice is both safe and ethical. A copy of the BACP ethical framework can be found on the BACP website; www.bacp.co.uk

I believe that any talking therapy is most effective when you can trust and feel comfortable with your counsellor, and so I offer a 30 minute consultation free of charge, to meet each other, discuss what you hope to gain from counselling and how we may work together to achieve this.

If you have any questions at all, then please do not hesitate to contact me.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
