About me

Hello. I’m Jenny Hudson and I’m a counsellor working in private practice. I offer counselling and psychotherapy services that are delivered either face to face in Manchester, or remotely by telephone or by Zoom. (Currently working by Zoom/telephone only due to COVID.)

I work with adults across all age ranges, up to and beyond retirement. I am committed to offering a service that is welcoming to all backgrounds in a supportive and non-discriminatory manner.

People come to me for a number of reasons. They may be experiencing anxiety, depression or grief, or they may be feeling stuck and can’t seem to move forward. They may be experiencing difficulties in their relationships or are struggling at work. Sometimes their reasons are not always clearly defined. They may have a sense of not being where they thought they would be at this point in life, and have a general sense of unease or dissatisfaction.

Whatever your reason, you are certainly not alone, and therapy can help you to work through whatever it is you're experiencing.

Getting in Touch/What to Expect

Reaching out can be difficult. If it's easier to drop me a note, feel free to text or email in the first instance. Whatever works best for you. I offer a free 20-minute phone consultation which allows us both to ask questions. You can talk to me about what you would like help with. I will gather some brief information and will talk to you about how I work. You can then decide if what I offer is appropriate for you. I offer flexible appointments, including evenings and weekends.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
