Hello, my name is Jodie.
I understand that starting counselling can seem worrying and I hope that I can ease any concerns you may have.
I offer a safe, friendly and confidential space to explore your feelings and the difficulties you might be facing. We can work together to build a strong therapeutic relationship where I will support and listen to you.
I offer an Integrative approach to counselling which means that I combine several therapeutic approaches rather than using one model which enables me to offer you counselling best suited to you.
Before we begin counselling we can meet for a chat where we can discuss your reasons for coming to counselling. This is a good opportunity for you to get a feel of whether you would be comfortable with me being your counsellor. There is no obligation for you to continue counselling with me afterwards, this can be something you decide following our meeting.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
