Josie Jenkins (MBACP) (BSc Hons) Psychotherapist
After much thought and research, following my governing professional body of The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) as well as the Worldwide Health Organisation and the UK government. I feel it is really important to be able to limit the spread of this virus and keep myself and others safe. I have made the decision to work from home and using a video chat programme such as Skype or Zoom.
I have a confidential working home office space and feel at this time I can offer that support to people that are experiencing alot of different feelings right now.
My name is Josie and I work with adult individuals and I am based at The Bay Therapy Centre in Lady Bay.
I have worked with clients that are in the caring role at a foundation called Carers Federation that brought up thier own personal difficulties.
I have experience in all areas and specialise in psychological trauma, trauma, low self esteem and low confidence, relationship issues as well as childhood related issues.
I have worked with clients on both a short term and long term basis and offer an open ended service.
I have completed a three year degree BSc (Hons) in Counselling and Psychotherapy: Humanistic and Integrative at The Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute in Nottingham and I am BACP registered member. I am also in regular supervision.
I consider myself to be a warm, caring, empathic and calm person. I work with a humanistic and integrative approach that enables us to develop a therapeutic relationship in which you can grow within it to explore what you bring to therapy which is completely at your own pace. I work with repairing and building on relational bridges.

The initial meeting/assesment is a full therapy hour session of 50 minutes which I do charge for. It is £40 for the hour.
I have prepared a little guide to help you get started on your therapy journey and what it entails.
It can be a nerve wracking feeling going into therapy and I would like to reassure you in thinking this is a brave and helpful step to take in your journey.
If you start by emailing me to set up an initial session then we can talk about what you want to get out of counselling and what has brought you this far. If you are then happy to continue we will see each other on a weekly or fortnightly basis.
