Hi, I’m Jess! Firstly, I want to acknowledge that taking the first step to find a counsellor can often one of the most daunting, so thank you for taking the time to visit my profile. You may be feeling anxious, stressed, and overwhelmed. Maybe you are unable to make sense of a situation you currently find yourself in or are struggling to form and maintain relationships. Whatever may be going on for you, you deserve a space to explore this.
As a person-centred counsellor, I will provide you with a safe, non-judgemental and empathic space where it is yours to explore your feelings, relationships, and experiences. I am here to walk beside you and support you on your journey of self-development and exploration to gaining a greater understanding and acceptance for yourself.
I believe deeply in the power of person-centred therapy and allowing my clients to feel empowered in who they are. As Carl Rogers once said “The gentle and sensitive companionship of an empathic stance… provides illumination and healing”.
Finding the right counsellor for you is key. This is why I offer a free 15 minute consultation to discuss your needs and to see we are the right fit for each other. Please feel free to get in touch if you would like some more information.

Bsc (Hons) Counselling and Psychotherapy (Professional Practice).
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.
