Jerilee Claydon UKCP, MBACP, Integrative Psychotherapy
I am a qualified Psychotherapist and Counsellor working with Adults, young people and children.
Psychotherapy explores emotions, beliefs, thoughts and behaviours. Together through the therapeutic relationship we can gain a new perspective to make life more manageable, understand its purpose, meaning and promote change.
My work is integrative; meaning I weave a variety of therapies to suit each client, each relationship will be unique depending upon your needs.
I am pragmatic and realistic to life's every day demands, I combine my knowledge of psychoanalytical theory and human psychology to find the most suitable method to help you.
I firmly believe that everyone should have the opportunity to explore their emotions. No concern or thought is too big or too small. Perhaps you are in a crisis, a bereavement, life feels complicated, or you just want to learn more about yourself. Every one of us experiences hundreds of emotions daily, the more we learn about them the more accepting we can become of ourselves and others.
Our initial meeting would be an assessment to ensure my experience matches your needs, at this point we can discuss any questions you may have.
Should you choose to start therapy we would meet once a week for a 50 minute session, this takes place in a private, quaint and comfortable, safe space.
Some clients choose short term therapy sessions and others longer term. We can discuss what would be more helpful for you during the assessment.
If you are unable to make a session face to face, Skype is a convenient effective alternative, I work with many clients internationally and throughout the UK.
An area of personal interest and expertise is working with anxiety related issues and expectant parents, individually or together, either through groups or privately. Please get in touch for more information on this.

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.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I work with anxiety related issues particularly with clients in their 20's and 30's and also reaching an age with life changing decisions, such as marriage and having children. If you would like support in understanding your anxiety and making healthy changes today get in touch to learn more about how this works.
I also work with pregnancy related issues. Whether it is a healthy pregnancy or one in crisis, each pregnancy comes with it's own set of emotions, losses and gains, some greater than others. I have specialised in this area, training and working in the UK and the U.S
Therapy sessions are 50 minutes for individuals and 75 minutes for couples
Individual from £95.00
Reduced fees are sometimes available for students and those on a lower income.
I offer short and long-term therapy, and provide one off sessions should you need some immediate support and sign posting.
I see clients both during the day and in the evening. At present I have space for new clients.
