I am a counsellor with extensive work and life experiences. In my practice now, I mainly work with couples . Has your relationship changed and you feel unhappy, sad or unheard, remember change can happen. Relationships are challenging; we have two different people with different wants and needs and that can be challenging to face up to. When we go into a new relationship, we invest our hopes, needs and desires and when things go wrong, it brings up different and often difficult emotions. I offer a safe space where both people can be heard and seen, so by identifying the root of your differences, positive changes can happen.

Perhaps you are struggling in a relationship with your partner , family member, or work colleague or just find it difficult to find confidence or self-esteem.
Therapy offers an important step in discovering the world around us and finding our place in it. For some people, coming to therapy is a big step. It can take courage to identify a need to heal, recover or progress. My approach aims to ensure that you feel safe in the knowledge that you can trust the therapeutic process. Maintaining the core values of empathy, unconditional positive regard for you as well as congruence (being authentic), I also use other modes of therapy.

I work with individuals, couples and families and use an integrative approach to address relationship issues.
Relationships can be complicated and when they are not going well, they can lead to stress, anxiety, low mood, isolation and disconnection. We can work together to understand how and why these difficulties may have arisen and what needs to change. This may be the relationship you have with yourself (perhaps issues with self esteem, confidence, anxiety, sadness or uncertainty about your future). It might be the relationship you have with family members (where there might be tension, illness, parenting difficulties) or with your partner (where you might be struggling with disconnection, infidelity, separation).

Do you find yourself going around painful and frustrating circles in your life and relationships? Do you feel stuck, overwhelmed and uncertain how to move forward? Sometimes, despite our best efforts, we just need another person to help us find a new path. Therapy can help us make sense of our feelings, thoughts and actions. It can support us to work through difficult emotions and memories and enable us to find the courage and compassion needed to forge a better life for ourselves. Choosing a therapist can be daunting, but having an initial chat on the phone can help you decide if someone feels like a good fit for you.

It can be hard to choose a therapist, harder still to reach out and make that first contact. I really get that. It might help to know that the people I work with are people like you: people struggling with anxiety, negative thoughts, depression, body image, sexual or gender confusion, childhood abuse, trauma, loss, lack of hope or meaning in life, work, relationships and addictions of all types. Whether you’re 18 and feeling angry, 60+ transgender with goals to achieve, in a mid-life crisis or don’t know where you fit, I’ll work with you towards a more fulfilling less stressful life.

You might be in crisis: a relationship breakdown, sudden news of the death of a loved one or an illness, a work loss, or at an emotional or spiritual crossroads. Or you may generally have the feeling that your life isn't all you'd like it to be - you feel stuck, aren't living up to your potential or feeling as fulfilled or happy as you would like. Either way, you can be supported to navigate successfully through the very choppy waters of crisis - or the fog of confusion or uncertainty. You don't have to go it alone! You may well emerge from the other side a stronger and happier person than you ever thought possible.

I have worked in a variety of settings in the field of mental health services: HMP Prison services in specialist addictions units & rehabilitation, Community drug services NHS Primary Care with IAPT and the Priory Hospital Bristol with inpatients and outpatient services.Each of these positions has built skills of understanding, therapeutic alliance, compassion and commitment to each of the people that trust me to support them. I believe in the ‘art and science’ of CBT and the therapeutic value and benefit of those coming together.This requires effort and personal investment, and it can feel hard, so let’s take a breath together .

With over 25 years of experience, ranging from addiction through to sexual and emotional abuse, anxiety, depression, anger and numbness, I'd like to support you. In recent years I have moved my work focus to integrating Internal Family Systems (IFS) as I find this way of working empowering to the client, engaging and highly effective. It may be you hear a loud critical voice inside or joy and fun may be fleeting or missing, you might like to access them again (or for the first time!). If your goal is a compassionate, connected, creative Self then maybe Internal Family systems be what you are looking for in therapy.

If you are struggling with feelings of low self-esteem, stress, anxiety, depression or bereavement or if you are having problems in your relationships at home or at work, counselling might be able to help you to make important changes in your life. Counselling provides a special therapeutic relationship where you will not be judged and where you will be given the respect and empathy that is needed for you to truly express yourself. Without providing advice, instructions or directions I aim to empower my clients so that they can work towards a happier future.

My aim is to help you achieve insight into what makes you tick, and for us to work collaboratively to develop strategies that assist you in living a complete, fulfilling life. While you will have some immediate pressing issues that bring you to therapy, we can also explore any longer-term, underlying issues concerning you. It is important to me that you feel comfortable to talk about your problems, experiences and personal thoughts.

Most of our problems in life, in my opinion, stem from difficulties managing and understanding ourselves - how we got to where we find ourselves, why we struggle to cope, why we feel the way we do. Counselling offers an opportunity to learn how we tick and why, which is one way to ease some of the psychological and/or physical burdens we find ourselves carrying. Counselling is an investment in oneself, a start in unravelling the complexities of who we are.

Life is not always easy. The fact that you are looking at my page suggests that something feels stuck, painful, maybe hopeless or unreachable and that you want something different for yourself – that you want things to change. Perhaps you want to free yourself from repetitive patterns of behaviour, depression, anxiety and self-limiting beliefs or the impact of trauma. Maybe you want to deepen your connection to yourself so that life feels richer and more rewarding and you can find a more authentic sense of yourself. Whatever your reason, I offer you a safe, empathetic and thoughtful space to explore whatever you want to bring.

Hello I'm Jess and I work with young people (aged 10 upwards) and adults in their 20s and 30s to help you understand yourself better. Does life not really make sense to you? Do you feel lost or confused about what's going on for you? Everything might look like it's going okay on the surface and yet underneath you wonder what it's all about. What would it be like to explore your life and figure out who you really are?

Now more than ever we are living in a world where contact with others has become increasingly difficult, not just physically but also emotionally. It would be understandable for many people to be feeling isolated and cut of from the rest of humanity at this time, for some this may also trigger painful, old wounds of unmet needs and maybe even a sense of hopelessness. You may crave feeling really connected to someone who is fully present with you and is invested in really understanding you and your situation, someone who can help you to create a relationship that will help to heal relationships that have failed in the past.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Stroud?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Stroud specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
