Jodie Nelson BSc (Hons) MBACP integrative counsellor with a professional interest in varying forms of trauma, depression, self-esteem concerns, and anxiety.
Whether you are new to therapy or have past experience, choosing to explore your concerns collaboratively and confidentially in a judgement free setting is a primary step in the process of change. Many individuals seek therapy for a variety of reasons –relationship issues, addiction, grief, issues related to childhood, professional issues, and the self are just a few examples. Whether you seek to explore past and/or current concerns, I aim to facilitate a space that is neutral, safe, and assistive for exploring emotional and psychological wellbeing. A place where clients can expect to be encouraged to express and evaluate any concerns, using varying methods and techniques to suit the individual which are established via mutual collaboration and arrangement.
I offer a complimentary telephone consultation to explore any questions you may have and to ensure that you are fully informed regarding the therapeutic process/service. This also provides the opportunity for you to express your individual needs and outline any therapeutic goals prior to attending any therapy sessions. Options of short-term and longer-term therapy are available with choices of face-to-face or online sessions. My clinic rooms are located a short distance from South Woodford station with easy accessibility for wheelchair users and other needs alike.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work in accordance with appropriate ethical and professional guidelines. I am also trained to deliver a variety of approaches that include person-centred, cognitive-behavioural and existential therapies.
Additionally, I have spent several years working in non-clinical NHS and private healthcare settings across London and have most recently completed assignments at the East London Rape Crisis Centre and The Awareness centre. I began counselling in 2016 before starting a private practice in 2019. My most recent research project explores suicidality and the considerations for counsellors and clinical supervisors.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
