Jenty Goodyer Diploma in Counselling, MBACP, RGN
I have 28 years experience as a Nurse, although currently work solely as a Counsellor. This perhaps adds a down to earth reality to my work, and I aim to offer warmth, non-judgement and understanding. Since starting to train as a Counsellor In 2007, I have worked voluntarily at Weston College for 2 years, and at SWAN (Counselling for Alcohol and substance mis-use) in Bristol for 3 years. I set up in Private Practice in 2010.
What counselling can offer:
It can be daunting to take the step to meet with a Counsellor, but if you can feel the counselling room is a safe and confidential space, healing can begin. I truly believe that whether you want to talk about your life, learn more about yourself, find break-throughs in thinking and behaviours, or just long to be heard and understood, the counselling relationship can help restore lost balance in life or even gain some for the first time.
We all experience upsetting times in our lives, past or present, and these can overwhelm us. Anxiety and depression can end up affecting our lives, relationships and sense of hope for the future.
Without growing in self-awareness, it is difficult to make positive life changes. That's why I'm passionate about what counselling can offer, and have great faith in the power of the relationship between counsellor and client.
My practice is in a village called Clutton, just off the A37, half-way between Bristol and Wells., and I also travel to clients' homes if preferred.
