Kertrina Jones PG Dip, BSc (Hons), UKCP (Accred), MBACP (Reg)
Welcome, I’m Kertrina a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor currently offering both short and long term therapy.
Life can be exhausting and difficult sometimes. We can find ourselves feeling isolated and alone while we struggle to find understanding and solutions.
Many things may be occurring, relationship problems, depression, anxiety, lifestyle changes or many others that can make it difficult to know where to start. Sometimes it can be hard to talk to those close to us, and this is where I can support you.
Entering into therapy can be a difficult decision; you may have feelings of uncertainty and confusion about whether therapy is for you.
Counselling is a relationship built on trust that will develop with time, it is important for you to find a counsellor you feel comfortable with. Our first session will give us opportunity to discuss your expectations, and establish if counselling is right for you and most importantly if we both feel we can work together. I aim to provide affordable one to one counselling either short or long term. I work in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental counselling practice either face to face, using secure online video therapy sessions or by telephone.
I regularly attend CPD (continued professional development) training and workshops to keep my skills up to date and learn of new developments. I am UKCP accredited (UK Council for Psychotherapy) and a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). I hold full professional indemnity insurance. I attend regular supervision to ensure I am practicing ethically and safely to UKCP and BACP standards.
