About me

My name is Jenny.

I am a qualified humanistic/integrative counsellor. I am an approachable, compassionate therapist who's aim is to provide a safe, secure environment for my clients. I draw from a wide range of counselling knowledge and skills. ( psychodynamic, cognitive behaviour therapy and person centred therapy ) This enables me to offer diverse counselling sessions to fully meet the needs of a person. My primary way of working is humanistically.

I have a vast range of experience and work with people that have many different issues. My specialized areas are trauma, sexual abuse, adult mental health and infant loss. I have 15 years experience of working in these areas but I also cover many different fields. I am also an accredited member of the Foundation for Infant Loss

I can offer a safe non judgmental, confidential space where you will hopefully feel safe and secure and comfortable enough to share any concerns or issues that are affecting your emotional well being and personal development. I am a member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and work within their ethical framework. I am also working towards accreditation.

On our initial assessment session we will discuss the therapeutic models of counselling and how I work. I fully believe that the counsellor/client relationship is key to therapeutic change so its important that you feel comfortable. This is also to help you decide if you feel this type of counselling is right for you. I will only charge £20.00 for the first initial assessment, which is to cover costs.

I work from my home which is located close to Bristol airport and in Knowle. I am also available for home visits.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a level 5 diploma in Integrative counselling ( person centered, gestalt and psycho dynamic therapy ) I have completed my qualification in counselling and trans-actual analysis. I have a qualification in working with addiction and in working with bereavement. I also have a certificate in trauma, dissociation and recovery and will be doing further study in this field of work. I am an accredited member of The Foundation for Infant Loss and have done further training around infant loss and bereavement.

My training has been further strengthened by my work with the victim support service which provides emotional support to victims of crime and their families. My work was primarily with victims of sexual assault and trauma and families dealing with the trauma of losing a loved one through homicide. I have also worked for the NHS supporting people struggling with mental health issues including anxiety and depression. Through these organisations I have had in dept training for:

Childhood trauma
Adult Trauma
Mental Health
Domestic Violence
Sexual violence
Murder, manslaughter and road death
Human Trafficking

I currently work with adults and children and work for a charity in Bristol. I have completed further training around child development and behaviour and have a diploma in this field of work. I also work with victims of human trafficking and modern slavery.
