About

As a counsellor, Jess is welcoming and friendly. She recognises the importance of building a therapeutic relationship to which people can bring problems and issues without judgement. Jess understands that we all experience uncomfortable and unhelpful behaviours and feelings. With support and some gently challenging, these behaviours and feelings can start to shift.
Jess is guided by gestalt psychotherapy methodologies and her work is underpinned by trauma informed practice and attachment theory. Her therapeutic approach is also influenced by current developments in neuroscientific research that encourage greater regulation of the nervous system
Jess encourages people to give her a call if they thinks she could be a good fit for them.
