Jenny Hill, Registered Member BACP, Adv.Dip.Couns.Psych.
I am a fully qualified and experienced Integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist working to help people achieve a greater degree of emotional freedom and to gain valuable personal insights. I have a gentle, respectful manner which can be particularly helpful for emotionally sensitive people.
There are times in life when it can be difficult to cope, for reasons such as relationship/ family problems, work, stress, divorce, loss, poor attachments, abuse/control, bereavement and loneliness. I personally and professionally have learned the value of working through these kinds of life issues. As Socrates said 'An unexamined life is not worth living'.
I combine the most useful aspects of three different psychological approaches; person centred, psychodynamic and cognitive therapy, and this has proven to be highly effective for various emotional issues.
During counselling I will be alongside you to help you explore what is going on for you in the here and now and perhaps at a deeper level. This is a very safe and confidential process where you can be assured of acceptance and non judgment, no matter what it is you are experiencing.
Where appropriate, we can consider how difficult past experiences may still be affecting you today, perhaps making important connections between how you feel now, and what you have experienced previously in your life. This can bring a great sense of release and can be both enlightening and empowering.
As therapy progresses we may identify unhelpful beliefs that have developed in your mind as a result of your experiences and we can work to replace these with more healthy, alternative beliefs that can help to restore your self confidence as you see things differently.
Although I am alongside you for support and guidance, you are ultimately in control of the sessions and you will never be pressured to talk about anything you do not want to.
