Jill Ashdown qualified counsellor / psychotherapist member of MBACP
Are you experiencing anxiety, panic, depression, relationship, bereavement or family issues? I can help you.
Sharing problems with someone can help you through difficult times in your life. As a fully qualified counsellor, I will work with you to help make those difficulties become more manageable.
Working together we can find positive ways forward.
As an experienced person centred Counsellor, I believe there is no single approach that suits everyone. I tailor my work to your specific needs and work effectively with each person in a unique and individual way.
Our relationship is key, so I aim to create a warm, welcoming and nurturing atmosphere to help you feel comfortable to explore your issues. Working together, we can find positive ways forward.
Life can feel very challenging and sometimes overwhelming, but change is possible. I feel privileged to be a part of my clients’ journeys, and I hope to be a positive part of your journey too.
What to expect:
Through my work with clients and my own personal experience, I understand how difficult life can feel.
All sessions take place in a warm, welcoming, accepting and non-judgemental environment, providing a comfortable space for you to explore your issues.

I can also offer online (Skype) counselling.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
£35 per session (50 minutes)
student counsellors and low income clients (proof required) £30 per session
