About me

Are you struggling to understand and manage your tween or teenage child's behaviour? Does it feel like constant rows and conflicts are in your home because of this? Are you walking on eggshells where minor things can turn into a battle? Is this leaving you exhausted, stressed and overwhelmed trying to balance work, home and family life?

You worry you are letting people down. Life feels complicated and busy, and you need more time for yourself. You find yourself saying 'yes' when you want to say 'no'.

​You don't have to feel like this!

There's so much information and support available when our children are small. Still, it can feel like you're entering a world of unknowns when they hit adolescence (the pre-teen or tween and teenage years). You don't stop worrying about them just because they're becoming a young adult.

Hi, I'm Jenny. I'm a counsellor and have over twelve years of experience. I can help you regain calm in your life and create positive relationships with the people around you.

In addition to this, I also offer single-session therapy, which is a shorter, more focused form of therapy.

We can work together to make your life calmer and your relationships feel stronger by:

  • Understanding other people's (and your own) emotions
  • Communicating with trust and honesty
  • Having clear boundaries
  • Being able to address conflict
  • Letting go of perfectionism
  • Being compassionate and kind to yourself

We will work together to make your relationships with the people most important to you happy, positive and healthy.

The next step

I know how important finding the right counsellor is, so if you're considering working with me, don't hesitate to contact me.

You can access therapy with me within a few days of making contact. 

I respond to new client enquiries as soon as possible - generally within 24 hours or by the next working day. It's also worth keeping an eye on your junk folder.

We'll then agree on a mutually convenient time for a brief "getting to know you" chat by phone. We'll discuss what you are looking to achieve with counselling and discover whether you feel able and comfortable with us working together.

One-off, solution-focused, single sessions are available: The Empower Hour

I also offer solution-focused single sessions, a one-off session to empower you to get moving through a particular issue that you may be having.

One session that will help you untie a knotty aspect of your life quickly.

A single-session 'Empower Hour' (75 mins) includes a brief follow-up call, 3-4 weeks later, as a check-in to see how you're doing. 

You can also look at my website,, to get more of a feeling for me and how single sessions with me work.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and an Accredited National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society (NCPS) member. My membership in these governing bodies ensures that I adhere to ethical standards and ongoing professional development.

I work with parents and carers as they navigate their child's tween and teenage years. I have a particular interest in working with neurodivergence in the family, whether formally or self-diagnosed autism or ADHD) and LGBTQ+ identities.

I also work with individuals on issues that impact their relationships, including past trauma from complex relationships, whether this is childhood experiences, emotional and narcissistic abuse or other relationship difficulties. 

I work in an LGBTQ+ and neurodivergence-affirming way. Whatever your background, culture or identity, you are welcome. 

I have over eleven years of experience planning and delivering effective counselling, case management and support interventions for young people, individuals, couples and families. I have worked in youth and family services as a family counsellor and as a school counsellor supporting students, their parents, carers and teachers. I currently work as a locum counsellor at Sussex University. 

I have a Postgraduate Diploma (Counselling) from the Australian College of Applied Psychology and a Postgraduate Diploma (Psychology) from Melbourne University. My undergraduate degree is a BA (Hons) in Public Administration from De Montfort University (UK).

I am studying for a master's in psychology - MSc Psychology (Conversion) - at Roehampton University.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS)

The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

  • Coping with your child as they head into their teenage years and puberty - Being a parent when your child hits their teen years can be challenging, and it may feel like there is a lack of information and support. I help parents maintain healthy relationships and boundaries with their adolescent children.
  • Perimenopause and menopause and the 'Perfect Storm' - Often, when someone in your home goes through puberty and adolescence, someone else goes through hormone shifts as they head towards menopause. I work with you to restore the balance and calm in you and your family.
  • Relationship and Family Issues - We'll work together on your relationship, whether you are together or thinking about separation or divorce. We'll find ways together to help you manage stresses and conflict, affairs and betrayal that can affect your relationship and family. We can also explore behaviour patterns, how attachment affects relationships and how parenting and family issues can affect your relationships.
  • Single-Session, brief, solution-focused therapy - Are you stuck on a particular issue? Get unstuck with the 'Empower Hour' - single session support to help you untie a knotty aspect of your life today.

Further information

Approaches I use:

I offer you a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space where you start to make sense of your struggles and challenges, giving you the headspace to work out what's best for you.

My primary approach is person-centred counselling. I also use other approaches as necessary to help you.

  • Person-centred (which means we talk about what matters to you)
  • Strengths-based
  • Solution-focused
  • Systemic (looking at the way your family works)
  • Trauma-informed (helping you cope and get through complex events from your past)

What to expect in our sessions

Counselling will take place once a week for 50 min. We'll work at your pace, and I generally leave the length of the counselling relationship up to you. You may wish to see me for only one session - the Empower Hour - or short to medium-term counselling over 8 to 12 sessions or longer.

We’ll set goals and work together towards achieving them.  We'll review and check regularly to ensure your counselling is on track.

All counselling sessions are via Zoom.
