About me

Hi, I'm Jessica and I am a fully qualified, accredited psychotherapeutic counsellor.

I am committed to putting you first, working to professional standards, showing you respect, maintaining integrity.  I work in a quiet, relaxing space and offer both long and short term counselling to young people and adults. 

Sometimes life is challenging, presenting us with issues that cause anxiety and depression, preventing happiness, impeding wellbeing, relationships, success and lowering self-esteem. Seeking help at such times can be daunting, however, talking to someone in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment can help in the exploration of issues in order to resolve problems and reach personal goals. I am here to listen: drawing on a range of counselling theories, aiming to provide therapy that is suited to the needs, problems and personal preferences that you may have.

I have supported individuals, couples and families experiencing a diverse range of emotional and psychological issues in their personal and working lives, including anxiety, depression, loss and relationship problems. My aim is to help you challenge and reflect both on current concerns and events in the past that may be preventing you from moving forward.

I am a member of the National Counselling Society and can be found on the society's Accredited Register and abide by its code of ethics: I am also a registered member of the BACP.

So, if you are experiencing problems in your present or are struggling to cope with those from your past, then talking to a trained counsellor can help you make sense of your situation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I gained extensive experience whilst training with a counselling service in South Wales: my work in the community involved helping individuals who struggled with a diverse range of issues including bereavement/loss, alienation, anxiety, stress, OCD, self-harm, PTSD, family conflict/problems, abuse and post-natal depression amongst other areas.

I have previously undertaken Child Protection Training, and am committed to regular supervision and on-going training courses to ensure I continuously up date my knowledge and skills, for example courses/events I have undertaken and gained CPD certificates in, include, Self Harm; Addiction; Art Therapy; Relations Depth and Emotional Connection; European Symposium on Addictive Disorders and an Integrative Approach for Working with OCD; CPD on Relationship Counselling; Conference for Children and Young People; Attachment - Therapeutic Implications; Private Practice Conference on: ' Identity Can You Tell Me Who I Am?'.  I have attended webinars on gender dysmorphia, addiction and trauma.  I continue to keep up to date through articles, webinars, texts, peer group meetings and research on related issues.  

My qualifications are as follows:
Advanced Professional Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling (Ad. Prof. Dip. PC)
Certificate in Advanced Counselling Skills (MASC Ad C.S)
Basic Counselling Skills (Certificate of Merit)
BA (Hons) in English Studies

I trained with the Samaritans, was a voluntary listener for over three years, was a personal tutor in education and volunteered with a Welsh service for asylum seekers, young mothers and those with a range of issues in the community.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

NCPS
National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS)

The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP
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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I have additional knowledge of the physical and cognitive impact of Strokes on suffers and how such an experience changes the life of carers. A previous placement within a Welsh community counselling service, led to helping those suffering from PTSD and dealing with traumatic experiences, whilst past work with the Samaritans provided me with knowledge of a wide range of issues impacting on the lives of individuals on a day to day basis

Further information

I am an integrative counsellor: I take elements of therapeutic approaches that best suit the individual and the individual's need and preferred way of working. I work in a predominantly person-centred way (that is, I believe that every individual has the potential to implement changes in their own life and can achieve their goals.) This approach is non-directive: that is, I do not tell you what to do, but together we talk through your problems and options.

At times a Psychodynamic approach may be called for (that is, looking back at past events in order to assess their impact on your present behaviours, thinking and feelings); whilst at other times it may be that you require some coping strategies to manage behaviours, thoughts and emotions (CBT). Calling on aspects of these approaches is part of my integrative approach.

NB – 20/03/20 Considering the current health situation I want to reassure clients that I am offering phone sessions, Whats App video sessions, Zoom sessions or Face Time sessions.
