About me

My name is Jessica and I am qualified in counselling and psychotherapy. My private practice is based in Alfreton, Derbyshire, where I offer both long and short-term counselling and psychotherapy. I provide a private, confidential space, where you are free to talk openly.

I will listen with empathy and without judgement which will allow you to explore your thoughts and feelings freely. I have had personal therapy; therefore, I understand how daunting it can be, especially in taking the first steps. I will support you through your journey with care and compassion. If I cannot offer you the kind of service you require, then I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a B.Sc(Hons) Counselling and Psychotherapy (First Class). I trained at the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute in Nottingham. Previously, I have worked for both a charity and a prison counselling service. I have experience in working with clients both on a long-term and short-term basis. I have knowledge and experience in a broad range of issues.

I am committed to life-long learning and development; I am currently completing a Master's Degree in Integrative Psychotherapy.

Prior to qualifying, I worked for 13 years with children and young people with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
