It can feel like a big decision to come into counselling, some issues feel too big and others too small. In light of this, Jess creates a safe, non-judgemental space to explore, whatever your issue may be. She believes that building a supportive honest relationship together can help you become more familiar with your patterns of behaviour and it is through self-awareness that you can begin to live a more full life, with endless choice. Jess believes that everyone with the right support can find more fulfilling ways to live and reach their potential.
Jess is a qualified, experienced humanistic counsellor and registered accredited member of the BACP. She takes a holistic approach and values your individuality and your context – after all we all live complex lives. She believes ultimately you are your own best expert, but you might have become stuck somewhere and exploring together can help shift those feelings of being trapped. Jess draws on a variety of theoretical perspectives, (including Gestalt, Person Centred, Transactional Analysis, Attachment Theory) creative explorations and practical tools to help you better understand yourself. Jess is also a BWY qualified yoga teacher and can work with mindfulness and mediation as another form of support to develop.
Jess has experience of open ended and time limited therapy and has worked in both counselling organisations and an NHS setting. She has experience with a wide variety of clients and their issues including relationships, general anxiety, health anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, sadness, low mood, depression, suicidal ideation, loneliness and isolation, anger management, family conflicts, parenting problems and post-natal depression.
