I also offer attachment-focussed therapy, which focusses on healing through nurturing the relationship between parent /carer and child.
Clients of all ages come to me with a range of issues and experiences – family difficulties, loss, anxiety, low mood, trauma … and just as often with more general feelings of unease and isolation that can be hard to pin down with words. Clients often appreciate space to reflect on their identity and their place in the world. One of the greatest privileges in my work is to support families working through past and present hurts to heal relationships, through empathy and authentic communication. I am experienced in working with foster carers and children in care, using an approach informed by Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP).

My particular interests include Wellbeing, Parenting , Fatherhood, Work, Coping and Thriving, and Personal Development.
I offer online and some face to face consultations to individuals, couples and families for communication difficulties associated with relationships and life-changes, when the usual ways of coping and support are insufficient or when the challenges involved are too much in some way. With over 30 years professional experience as a systemic practitioner, I have worked with people from a range of cultures and backgrounds in the independent, voluntary, private and public sectors. Single consultations, short-term and longer work are all available.

Feeling safety in a complex world is no mean feet. Childhood, historic, or current experiences, interacting/reacting with the complexities brought about by the pandemic, can exhaust any capacity for resilience. maybe you're a parent /carer of children transitioning from the intensity of lockdown to the uncertainty of the easing of restrictions? Is this further complicated by returning to education settings for children with Autism, ADHD, FASD, SPD, trauma and attachment? Maybe you are a foster care or adoptive parent wondering how to rebalance the attachment bond after the intensity of lockdown, recalibrating interfamilial dynamics?

The range of psychological approaches I use include: Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR) Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) Mindfulness interventions, Solution Focused, Attachment Theory, Gentle Parenting .
I love working with people, getting to know you and hearing your story. I believe that we are all unique. One of the things I love most about my work is the privilege of seeing someone begin to thrive and to enjoy their life again. I love helping to find some inner calm, clarity of thought and to be practicing self compassion as part of their everyday lives. I work in a bespoke way, tailor making my approach to each person. However, that said, everyone's needs compassion and so a compassion focused therapy approach runs through all of my work. I am most definitely a human first and a psychologist second.

You are probably feeling very upset, alone and confused, maybe even ashamed and wondering if counselling could help? Everyone who comes to therapy has a unique set of issues but the underlying need to share the distress and be understood, is true for everyone. If you are struggling with parenting , postnatal depression, miscarriage or your identity as a woman you are not alone. I have lots of experience working with women (and men) who are struggling with family life and want to feel better than they currently do. I also help young people with identity and self esteem issues, self harm, anxiety and sad feelings

Motherhood can be profoundly intense and triggering.You deserve to thrive,not just survive day to day, pouring your energy into other people.My clients have often overcome stressful life events or difficult childhoods and find that 'old stuff' bothers them again because of the stresses and triggers of motherhood.Becoming a mother involves a breaking down of your old life and building a new one. It is a creative process that includes mourning for lost parts and usually some confusion and uncertainty. The transition is enormous and different for each woman.

I'm Jack, a BACP registered psychotherapeutic counsellor. I take a humanistic approach which places us alongside eachother. I will be led by you to create a safe and supportive space. We can generally focus on understanding your unique perspective and experiences. I also like to consider how we can accept responsibilities and explore your choices (or lack of choice). We can decide together what we’re working on; but typically we may touch on finding your strength, self-development, and ways you can grow and feel better about yourself and your situation.

I believe in the power of opening up, and while I will draw on theory and knowledge to support each individual client, I am led by the client and their individual needs. An ideal client is someone who wishes to build a therapeutic space alongside me, allowing me to facilitate safety and build trust. I am experienced at working with complex mental health needs, therefore I begin by creating a formulation of the problem with the client, and collaboratively establish their needs and personal goals. i am interested in helping others to learn about themselves through relational dynamics they experience.

Psychotherapy can help you with such difficulties as: relationship problems, life transitions, depression, anxiety, identity confusion, and anger. People who engage in individual therapy often speak of improvements in the quality of their relationships, increased confidence and a growing ability to take risks and make changes in their lives. Problems in partner relationships can be complex and sometimes destructive and limiting, with roots in childhood difficulties. Couples therapy seeks to understand the underlying issues and conflicts, resolve difficulties and find an agreed way forward.

Counselling is a place to explore our thoughts, feelings and emotions. A chance to explore our life direction. An opportunity to pause and understand where we are and what is happening in our lives right now. It is a place to explore past and present events or traumas and a space to speak out loud thoughts that had previously been unspeakable.

Parenting Counsellors
In a rapidly changing world, parenting can be subject to fads and changing styles, and parenting in some privileged circles has become a competitive sport. But the needs of child development as delineated by science remain relatively stable: safety, structure, support, and love.
