Outside of my private practice I work with children and young people and also volunteer for a counselling charity where I see people of all ages.
I am currently NOT taking new clients and will update when I have more space. You will have your own reasons for coming to therapy. You may be finding it hard to cope, have a desire for change or life’s challenges may leave you anxious, stressed or depressed. You may feel stuck and unable to move forward or alone with difficult thoughts and feelings. I'm an empathetic, non-judgemental therapist who offers a confidential space where you can feel safe, understood and trusted as you start to explore the reasons why you feel as you do. I will support you to understand the challenges you face and the changes you wish to make.

Children and young people often find it difficult to talk about feelings. Some children will act out these feelings, which can lead to some behaviours that are difficult to understand. Others might withdraw when faced with difficult feelings and become quiet and isolated. Adolescence can be a difficult time, full of anxiety, uncertainty and changes. Together, we will try to understand these feelings and what might be going on. Having an understanding of these feelings and knowing that having these feelings, good or bad, is ok and can be managed will help them feel more in control of their feelings and behaviour.

I have experience in working with both adult clients and children and started my counselling journey working in children and adolescent mental health for the NHS.
Hello I'm Jen and I am a person-centred therapist and I have been in private practice since May 2020 where I see clients remotely. I offer person-centred therapy to both adults and children. Working as a person-centred therapist I believe the client is very much the driver of their own therapy journey and I am here to offer that safe space required to enable the client to freely explore what is going on for them at a pace which feels natural to the individual. There is no obligation to set goals as the therapy I provide is very fluid and can go in any direction as the therapy offered is all about the person and not goals or targets.

I'm experienced working with both children and adults, and offer both short and long term counselling.
As the saying goes, 'Its' good to talk', and I'm hear to listen. Whether life has just got a bit too much at the moment, or whether there are longer term factors and influences you'd like to explore and process, together, we can find a way. I could go into more detail, but for me, reading a blurb doesn't help establish whether I'm the right counsellor for you. If you've reached the point where you are actively looking I'd suggest sending me an email or giving me a bell, lets have a chat and see if I'm able to provide what you need.

Are worries keeping you up at night? stressed about bills, going to work or school? feeling low and not wanting to get out of bed in the mornings? Do you find yourself getting caught up in your thoughts, ruminating on past experiences, trying to create new ways to feel happy and less anxious, sad, angry; but it never works. Not leaving your home? Our mental health is key to us all living a fulfilled and enjoyable life, yet it is often spoken about less frequently than other areas of our lives. I offer you a safe space to talk about the difficulties you experience, work on improving your mental health and overall quality of life.

Do you feel stuck, sad, or anxious? Are you an adult struggling with life right now? Or a parent concerned for your child or teen? Life can throw up difficulties at any time, a difficult childhood, trauma, or a relationship breakdown. You or your child may have experienced bullying, difficulties fitting in or managing social and cultural expectations. These experiences can lead to the development of anxiety and low mood, self esteem issues, and other mental health difficulties. Therapy can help you to understand yourself, and the impact of your thoughts and behaviours more deeply.

My time working with young children and their families, along with raising my own children has provided me with a wealth of life experiences.
My approach to helping my clients with therapy and counselling services, is founded on the principle of Integrative Therapy. This means choosing the practices from different therapeutic modalities best suited to a client’s particular needs and wants. By tailoring the therapy to the individual, I hope to deliver the most meaningful outcomes. Integrative Therapy is not limited to a particular methodology and instead allows me to draw on different techniques as they are required. I work with a number of forms of therapy and personalise the approach to meet the types of challenges you may be facing.

I am a therapist who has a holistic approach to helping children to heal by supporting both parents and their children . Through my work I have noticed that children with low confidence and low self-esteem can express this through becoming withdrawn and avoidant or becoming angry and controlling. Parents come to me and tell me their child always wants control or they feel like they are stepping on eggshells when around their child. I offer play therapy, parent coaching, parent-child attachment play and life story therapy which is for fostered or adopted children. Please see rainbirdtherapy.co.uk for more information.

Child Counsellors
Child psychologists in Southampton, ENG provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Southampton build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
