Stephanie Jeans, MA Counselling, Clinical Supervisor, Accredited MBACP
67 Portchester Road
Have you noticed that your problems have begun to affect your daily life, functioning at work, relationships, your health or finances? You may be feeling anxious and depressed and lacking motivation in daily life. You may be feeling angry or out of control. Counselling helps you to understand more about your issues, assess the nature of your struggles and provide strategies to put more helpful behaviours in place. This is done in with non-judgment and compassion to facilitate change, growth & recovery.
I can help with all manner of personal challenges and worries you may have, such as relationship issues, anxiety, stress, depression, anger, abuse & illness. I am specialist in Sex Addictions Therapy, working with compulsive sex and porn behaviours. See www.stephaniejeans.co.uk
I have also specialised in all manner of bereavement and especially in helping with the unique grief of those who have lost a child or a sibling, having managed the Johannesburg branch of The Compassionate Friends. Alongside of this, I also have a special affinity for working with young people, following on from 13 years as a secondary school teacher.
To book our first appointment call me now on +44(0)7772696598, or send me an email to email@example.com. I offer a half price first session, to assess if I am the right therapist for you. We can also talk on FaceTime or Skype if this suits your lifestyle and needs. I value your privacy - all calls and emails are dealt with by me alone and are strictly confidential. As we work together you will see there can be a more optimistic, confident and happier future for you.
I am close to bus routes, and there is ample, free parking. Access is easy with no stairs.

I see supervision as a dynamic working alliance between myself and a counsellor, and a joint exploration of material presented by the supervisee. I practise a Person-Centred approach and facilitate an opportunity for a therapist to reflect on their practise, receive feedback and encouragement, and where appropriate, guidance. In Person-Centred Supervision, the counsellor brings themselves such that the focus is largely on the counsellor as opposed to the client. My object is to enable the counsellor to gain in ethical competence, confidence, compassion and creativity, so as to be able to give the best possible emotional and therapeutic support to their clients. I encourage a constant curiosity so as to avoid complacency and to promote constant growth and self-awareness around emotional responses and how these impact in the therapy room.
I encourage supervisees to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding as counsellors, and to reflect on and evaluate their practise. I believe in providing a therapeutic space that offers a non-judgemental environment as it affords an opportunity to address thoughts and feelings that arise from client work. In line with this I assist in monitoring standards and ethics of practise, adhering to the BACP Ethical framework. I recognise that each party has unique and valuable knowledge and experience and that we can learn from each other.
While the focus may be on the supervisee, there is a responsibility to the client, and as such I consider it a three way liaison of counsellor, supervisor and client, comprising:
- Support and encouragement
- Teaching and integrating theoretical knowledge and practise
- Assessment in the maintenance of standards
- Transmission of professional values and ethics

As well as face to face, I also work with counsellors nationally and internationally. Most of all I consider it a privilege to work alongside supervisees and support you in your practice. I offer a free assessment for you to ascertain if I am the right supervisor for you.
