Hello I’m Jeni. As an experienced Dramatherapist I have found that when things are too hard to talk about initially, creativity can help us to express and process and then release what no longer serves us. My private practice allows me to work online with adults, and young people, and in a Primary school with a specialist speech and language unit. I have also worked in numerous Secondary schools. I have experience in working with anxiety, low self esteem, pre and post bereavement, fostering and adoption (life story work) neurodiversity and survivors of sexual assault

I work in a trauma-informed manner and have specific experience and training in sexual abuse /trauma.
Has a recent or past negative experience left you feeling lost or stuck? Maybe you’ve tried to just get on with life but inside you still feel broken, replaying events in your mind and asking yourself why or how this happened. Perhaps you know what happened to you was traumatic or maybe you’ve told yourself it “wasn’t that bad”. Some days you seem to feel all the emotions all at once, and other days you feel nothing at all. Other people simply don’t understand, leaving you feeling alone and like you don’t matter. Most things in your life, your relationships, work or education might be affected and you long to break free from it all.

Life can present us with many struggles, ranging from those arising from specific circumstances or existential concerns, through to more complex and long-standing difficulties. I have experience of working with many different concerns, including anxiety, depression, high levels of shame and self-criticism, difficulties in relationships, low self-esteem, self harm and/or suicidal thoughts, sexual abuse , and difficult family dynamics/early experiences (including growing up with parents who may have been very loving, but struggled to recognise and attune to your emotional needs).

I have clinical experience working with emotional and sexual abuse , bereavement, anxiety, depression, medical diagnoses, and life transitions.
I understand we experience our world individually, but collectively we all face challenges, difficulties and choices along the way. Sometimes we can do this alone and sometimes we need help. I have experience working with trauma which has often been denied or painfully avoided in the past and continues to be stored in the body today - unacknowledged and unheard. I work with emotional, social and relational issues. Together we can work to find the best way forward for you. We can consider your choices and ways to help you cope 'to live in the present moment, where life is found.' I work with both Individual Adults (18+) and Couples.

Alongside my private practice, I work with Anxiety UK, Cruse Bereavement & a Rape & Sexual Assault Charity.
Do you find yourself saying ‘I’m fine’ when someone asks ‘How are you?’, but inside you are crumbling? Do you find yourself putting a mask on whenever you are around others in fear of them seeing what is really going on inside? Or do you find yourself ignoring your emotions and just pushing them away and not giving yourself the time to explore how you are really feeling? Life can be incredibly challenging at times and I understand how some life experiences can have a big impact on us and can leave us feeling overwhelmed and confused. Before you know it, you have lost direction and feel stuck and unable to find your way back.

My primary way of working aims to work with the individual as a whole, through helping the client understand their thought and emotional processes.

We all experience difficulties and challenges in our lives. Sometimes, problems can feel overwhelming, even unbearable. At times, we may feel that we ourselves are the problem. I offer a non-judgemental, confidential space where, together, we can explore the challenges you face. Some facts of our lives cannot be changed – having happened already or, for example, illness or impending loss. As your therapist, my aim is to offer you the relationship and support you need to reflect on and be more able to cope with difficult life events.

Hello, my name is Indre and I am a qualified counsellor in an advanced training in psychotherapy. I work short-term or long-term depending on individual's needs. Psychotherapy is a powerful tool to enhance one's life and potential. My approach is relational - using Transactional Analysis tools. Although, most struggles and limiting thinking/behaviour stem from our past, the therapeutic relationship can help to uncover these areas and be a vehicle of change.

As a Counselling and Health Psychologist, I work mostly with adult clients including those suffering from the adverse effects of negative, toxic or traumatic life experiences, events or relationships; those experiencing distressing and often debilitating symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD or other mental health conditions and those struggling with the diagnosis, treatment or consequences of cancer or other often debilitating medical conditions. The approach taken in therapy will depend on the specific needs of the individual client, taking into account practical considerations such as cost and time constraints.

You are brave to get this far, I am here to help you go further; to become strong in your mental and emotional health. I believe that when pain we carry is faced in counselling, with insight, gentleness and compassion, healing comes. Healing then releases energy which enables you to be and to live well. Many people have survived not just childhood, but large junks of their lives by focusing on other peoples' desires and needs. And who, now, are virtual strangers to their own-selves, making functioning on a daily basis an uphill challenge as they carry anxiety, depression, PTSD or battle negative feelings or feel misunderstood.

Starting therapy can be daunting so it’s important that you identify a therapist and an approach to working that feels right for you. As an art psychotherapist, I am open, honest and inclusive with considerable experience supporting children, adolescents and young adults in schools and community settings. My approach to working is psychodynamic - I’m interested in how past events may have affected you, both consciously and unconsciously, influencing the way you think, feel and behave. Should talking about your experiences be too difficult, I may encourage you to try different creative techniques as an alternate means of expression.

We can all have difficulties in everyday life and encounter problems that we simply find hard to cope with alone. You may feel worried, anxious, low, confused, isolated or may be experience difficulties in relationships. You may be suffering from feelings of low self esteem or low self confidence. You may have been diagnosed with anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, or maybe you are just feeling sad. When these feelings and thoughts persist and become overwhelming it may be difficult to know which way to turn.

You may be feeling low, depressed, anxious, angry or experience bereavement or grief. This can feel overwhelming and leave you needing some support and you may find at this time counselling could help. My approach is warm, emphatic, and confidential giving you an opportunity to feel heard and supported. I understand how hard it is to make that first contact and to talk about what is troubling you and I aim to make that first conversation as comfortable as possible.

Sexual Abuse Counsellors
Child sexual abuse is the deliberate exposure of a minor child to sexual activity that the child cannot comprehend or consent to. This means a child is forced or talked into sex or sexual activities by another person. This behaviour includes acts such as inappropriate touching of a child's breasts or genitalia, someone exposing their genitalia to a child, fondling, oral-genital contact, genital and anal intercourse, as well as exhibitionism, voyeurism, and exposure to pornography.
