Psychologist Jenny Noero CPsychol AFBPsS
Stressed, anxious, depressed?
Do you find it hard to cope with all the demands on you? Do you feel stressed, anxious, experience panic, or feel tired, down and unmotivated, or all of this? As an experienced Consultant Psychologist, these are amongst the range of difficulties I can help with. I am to offer a confidential, discreet and supportive place for you to explore the difficulties that brought you to therapy and to find ways to change.
How I work and what I do: Psychological Therapy
I am a qualified Clinical Psychologist and in addition a qualified Counselling Psychologist. This means that I have been trained to work across the range of mental health services found in the NHS with people of all ages, and to work with a variety of mental health difficulties and diagnoses. As a Counselling Psychologist, I have also undergone specialist training in the provision of psychological therapies.
I work with adults, from working age to older people, and offer psychological therapy for depression, anxiety disorders (generalised anxiety, panic, OCD, phobias, social anxiety), stress, health related issues and long term conditions, low self-esteem, PTSD and trauma, relationship difficulties, loss, memory problems and neurological conditions.
The main approach I use is cognitive behavioural therapy. However, as emotion plays such an important role in the difficulties which bring someone to therapy I also work within an emotion focused framework. I am trained in mindfulness based cognitive therapy which can help develop a steady focus and emotional regulation. All of this can contribute to a more integrative approach which will depend on your needs and the psychological formulation of your difficulties.
I can provide Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy for PTSD/trauma.
Counselling for life challenging events such as bereavement, loss, the impact of illness, times of transition (including retirement), adjustment and crisis, carer burden and relational difficulties is also available.
What to expect from your first session
Please see see section below Any Further Information about the free initial telephone conversation I offer to help you decide whether or not to proceed.
If you do decide to go ahead, our first session will give us the opportunity to meet and discuss the problems troubling you in detail. The session will be aimed at assessing the nature of these difficulties to allow me to gain enough understanding so that I can suggest the best approach to meet your needs. I will need to collect some personal information which you agree to share. We will also agree on some basic "housekeeping" such as finalising arrangements about how often we will meet, payment, cancellation and rescheduling etc. I will try to make this as comfortable and useful a process as possible for you.

Areas of counselling I deal with
I accept self-funding and insurance funded clients. I am happy to discuss my fee with self-funding clients and will take personal circumstances into account.
It can be really hard and quite daunting to decide which therapy and which therapist might best suit you. To help you with this I offer a free initial telephone conversation lasting about 15 to 20 minutes. Please contact me to arrange a time so we can discuss your needs and what I can offer.
At present I am only working online and this situation will depend on COVID-19 developments. Please don't hesitate to discuss any uncertainties you have about video-based therapy. While it's familiar and also good to meet face to face, there are also advantages to working online and we can discuss ways to adapt this way of working to you and any concerns you might have.
