Jeni Summerfield offers a warm and non-judgemental space in which her clients can feel free to share openly. She is committed to creating a safe environment to allow her clients to explore and work through difficult thoughts and feelings. Jeni uses a psychodynamic approach to counselling, believing that childhood and past experiences can have an influence on present patterns of relating and decision making. She feels enabling her clients to develop self-awareness and reflect on their past can offer them a deeper understanding of themselves, and provide them with the clarity to lead a fuller life.
Having worked for many years in a one to one client environment, Jeni feels that building a good rapport is essential to the counselling process. The ability to relate to her client’s feelings and thoughts creates a mutual understanding based on empathy and trust. Jeni would like to offer an understanding therapeutic relationship in which she feels will encourage her clients to feel comfortable exploring their true selves.
Jeni has completed her foundation year and is working towards a diploma in psychodynamic counselling. She is working within The Awareness Centre’s low cost centre in Tooting and is registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
