About me

Life's a journey and with all journeys there can be bumps in the road from time to time. Helping to smooth out those bumps, or perhaps to strengthen the vehicle is what counselling can achieve!! I am Jess and I am a qualified BACP registered counsellor. I have experience with clients of varying ages and issues ranging from anxiety, abuse, divorce, parental alienation, bereavement, trauma, low self esteem and depression.

Training, qualifications & experience


I see clients as unique and individual and this reflects in tailoring the counselling to the client's needs. I am trained to work with clients face to face in our safe and comfortable space as well as online, telephone or outdoors.

I have experience working with separated parents and young people dealing with the separation and their parent's conflict. I also currently work with children in a school setting offering creative therapy.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
