Hi I'm Jenny and I am available for one to one Counselling in Cumbernauld (Carron House, next to St Mungo's Church) during Weeknights and Wednesday daytime-evenings.
You might be thinking about counselling as you are struggling in some way, such as with anxiety,low mood,poor self-esteem, negative habits or issues from your past. You may not feel able to talk to those in your life about your issues; you might be worrying about burdening them, feel embarassed, that they dont understand or are a part of your concerns.
I can offer you a safe, supportive and confidential space to work together through the issues you may be having.Counselling can help you to understand yourself better, improve your relationships and to work towards leading a more fulfilling life.
I offer an experienced integrative approach to counselling with over 7 years working and volunteering in the counselling field. I was originally trained in the Person Centred approach to Counselling but I am trained in and incorporate other thereaupetic techniques to help you to meet your needs, and move forward in your life.
For instance Cognitive Behaviour Therapy techniques to help identify and change negative thinking patterns and behaviours and Compassion Focused Therapy which can help you to be kinder to yourself and less self-critical.
I also have training in Schema Therapy which is a therapy which can help you to tackle enduring issues and patterns within your life and relationships.It can be very helpful where you have experienced difficulties in childhood for instance with narcissistic parents or abuse.
I am an accredited Alcohol and Drugs Counsellor with over 7 years experience in this area including with alcohol, cocaine and cannabis issues. My specialisms are Addictions,Self-Esteem issues, stress, Anxiety (including generalised anxiety, Health Anxiety, Panic disorder)and issues relating to difficulties or trauma experienced in childhood.I have extensive experience in working with male clients from aged 16 and onwards.
Please note I do not work with children or couples.
