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.

Member organisations


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.
