About me

Welcome. My name is Jeff Young and I am an integrative therapist and clinical supervisor. I run the therapy workshop here in the north west. I work 1:1 and in groups both face to face, remotely via telephone and also on line.

Along with general issues that can affect your mental health and well being, I work within the areas of trauma, bereavement and loss, depression and general anxiety. 

My own background is varied, and prior to becoming a therapist, I was a member of the armed forces and fire service and i have also worked within different areas  of industry.  As well as my work as a counselling and psychotherapeutic practitioner,   I am also a counselling lecturer and clinical supervisor.    

For me, therapy is not a one size fits all bandage. It is a two-way process and it involves you. The aim is for us to work together to look at ways to help you to deal with whatever it is that is holding you back from living your life. One thing that I do know is that therapy works but it can only work with your input. 

I do not have a miracle cure, that is for sure, but If you feel that you need to talk but not be talked at then maybe I can help. If you feel that an approach that looks at using different form of therapy that is designed around your needs is something that could work for you, then feel free to reach out for a no obligation chat and see where it goes from there. Absolutely no pressure.

If not, then I wish you well on your search and I am sure that you will find the therapist that suits you within this directory.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BSc in Therapeutic Counselling, I am a clinical supervisor and I am currently working towards a MSc in Applied Psychology. I have studied humanistic, behavioural and psychodynamic approaches as well as mindfulness based CBT.  I have several years of experience working with clients and I am also a counselling lecturer and subject lead within a college.

Although I am able to offer different approaches to counselling, my approach is always underpinned from a person centred perspective. At the end of the day, this journey is about you and the therapy should work around you. 

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

NCS

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP

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.
