About me

Hallo, my name is Jessica.

I am a counsellor and would like to help you. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I am a good listener and will offer you an environment where you can explore your worries and fears without feeling judged. This is your safe space to use for your benefit so that you can safely decide what works for you in your day to day life.

I offer online/telephone person-centred counselling to adults who wish to work through issues like grief and bereavement, anxiety, living with HIV, childhood sexual abuse and many others. The number of sessions depends on the issues one needs to deal with and is different for everybody.

Sessions will last 60 minutes and will cost £45per session.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
