PAULA JENNINGS BACP Accred Counsellor, supporting both Adults and Young People.
If you are needing someone to talk to and are looking at the directory, you have already started your journey to feel better and improve your life. Finding the right counsellor is extremely important so here is a little bit about me.
I have been a counsellor to adults, teenagers and children for 14 years. I hold good counselling qualifications and am affiliated to the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) In my counselling room I provide a warm, welcoming and emotionally safe environment to explore any worries, problems or issues that are causing you distress, sadness or anxiety.
You may feel that you would like a short period of counselling or something more long term and supportive. I am happy to help you with this. Your session is completely confidential.
I am also currently offering Clinical Supervision to fellow Counsellors , Pastoral Support & Teaching staff.
My training includes many different approaches in counselling- Psychodynamic, Person Centred, CBT and Solution Focused Counselling means I can help in different ways.
My experience includes working with
Anger Management ,ADHD
Panic Attacks, Parenting Issues
Low Self Esteem,
Work related problems
In 2008 I jointly founded The Schools Counselling Service which is still operational and in its 8th year of realisation. My role as a school counsellor means I am practised in play therapy and can work with children and young people in an age appropriate way.
I have also worked closely with Cahms and the Integrated Services Team for Suffolk County Council helping young people with issues such as loss and self esteem.
Please contact me if you feel you would like to arrange a Counselling appointment or to arrange Clinical Supervision.
I look forward to hearing from you.
