Jeni Summerfield offers a warm and non-judgemental space in which her clients can feel free to open up in privacy. She is committed to ensuring an empathetic environment to enable unspoken and difficult feelings to be explored. She provides a supported place for her clients to work through the difficulties that that life can sometimes bring. Jeni uses a psychodynamic approach to counselling, believing that childhood experiences can influence present patterns being repeated in life decisions and relationships. She feels strongly that self-awareness and reflecting on the past can bring a deeper understanding and 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 key to the counselling process. The ability to relate to a client’s feelings and thoughts creates a mutual understanding based on empathy and trust. Jeni would like to offer a supportive therapeutic relationship in which she will encourage her clients to feel unburdened and safe to develop self-awareness.
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.
