I understand the gravity and rippling affect violence and sexual abuse can have but also that there is hope, strength and empowerment that can be found within oneself with the help of counselling.
I am a Humanistic, trauma informed counsellor and member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I understand there are times when life can feel overwhelming and daily life can become more of a struggle. This can often feel isolating and confusing, but it is important to know that you don’t have to go through it alone. My aim is to provide a warm, welcoming and supportive environment in which you feel able to explore your feelings and emotions without fear of judgement. I am able to help with many of life's challenges and have specialist experience of working with survivors of sexual abuse and sexual violence.

Although I can help with many challenges, I’ve specific experience and training working with trauma and sexual abuse , and I work at a pace, led by you.
Seeking a counsellor can be a daunting process. If you’re having having trouble maintaining nourishing connections or have experienced a recent loss or trauma, I can work with you to find your own insights and strengths, enabling you to move towards more freedom and choice. I recognise the need to feel met within a safe and trusting relationship. Having a sense of safeness in the relationship, between us, is at the heart of effective therapy. If we start by being easy and gentle with ourselves, caring for and being able to understand ourselves more fully, can pave the way for more fulfilment.

I have a particular interest in trauma and how it impacts our nervous system: PTSD and C-PTSD, dissociation, hearing voices, addictive behaviours and coping mechanisms and their link to childhood trauma; 'ACE's' (Adverse Childhood Experiences), and how these affect us as adults. Trauma comes in many forms; obvious, overt ones such as physical or sexual abuse , car accidents, war, disasters etc, and also less obvious or covert forms like emotional abuse or neglect, bullying, or just 'not getting what we need' on an emotional level. I'm a member of ISST-D, a trainee member of UKCP and BCPC, and have specialist trauma training.

What happened in your childhood? How does it affect you now? I work with adults to overcome childhood/teenage adversities to find their confidence and build self-esteem. You might be feeling anxious, depressed or overwhelmed. It could be feeling unworthy of another person's love, feelings of shame or of being punished for something, not trust or over trusting other people. Each day can become an internal battle as you feel doubt yourself, maybe loath yourself, just can't get organised and decision leave you exhausted. If this resonates with you email me or check out my website to book a free 15 minute phone call/zoom chat.

My name is Jenny and I am an integrative counsellor. I primarily work using the humanistic approach but being integrative means that I have studied the other approaches to counselling which include psycho-dynamic and CBT. I am an approachable, compassionate therapist and I aim to offer my clients a safe space to be able to talk without fear of judgement. I have done significant training in trauma and work using models of trauma recovery. I volunteered with the Victim Support service and have worked with people that had survived sexual violence, and with people that had lost a loved one through murder and manslaughter.

I provide a safe and unpressured space where you can explore all aspects of who you are, without the restrictions and expectations you might feel in everyday life. Counselling can help you make sense of your feelings, behaviour and relationships. I believe this can be a process of growth and self-discovery. We often adapt our true selves to manage the pressures of life. Counselling can be an opportunity to say the things you may never have had the chance to say before and explore feelings that may have been hidden. It can lead to deepened self-awareness and can help you find ways to become 'unstuck' and move forward with life.

Are you constantly experiencing the breakdown of relationships leaving you feeling distressed, bewildered, let down and perhaps even angry with yourself for repeating these patterns? It can be devastating to keep finding ourselves stuck in this way. Whether in intimate relationships, family dynamics, friendships or work situations, I can help you explore these issues, in the hope of understanding their origins and gradually healing yourself, thus developing the possibility of healthier relationships with others. Maybe you have experienced some of the above and are also in the Creative/Performing Arts Community or Film/ Media.

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.
