Is it difficult for yourself to connect to your emotions and feelings? Sometimes it is complicated to find a link to enable us express freely. Unintentionally, we can create a habit in which we suppress, run away, deny or manipulate our emotions. It is normal to try to push away feelings of discomfort like stress, fear or pain; but there are tools you can learn to help you cope with these emotions in a healthy way. Instead of denying, distracting yourself, manipulating or disconnecting, you can accept, observe, acknowledge and connect deeply with your feelings.

Hello, I am Marijke. I have many years of experience in working with different people from all walks of life. First as a social worker, and in the past few years as a psychotherapeutic counsellor. I work with adults, teenagers and couples. I can help you work through any areas in your life where you feel “stuck” and where you experience problems, like anxiety and depression, addiction, phobias, Post Traumatic Stress, feelings of low self-worth and low self-esteem, or problems in your relationship.

Are you faced with difficulties, feeling angry, sad or anxious? I understand the reason you are seeking counselling may not be in relation to any specific issue. For example, you may want a safe and confidential space to explore your feelings or seek to grow as a person. It is my wish that our sessions together can help you to understand yourself better and provide greater insight and awareness of your presenting issues or life experience. My integrative training allows me to be flexible and adaptable with my approach as I feel that therapy is not a one size fits all endeavour.

Sometimes, our coping strategies, and the ways we relate to others, may become problematic. For instance, you may feel overwhelmed by grief, illness or painful events. Relationships may break down. You may feel anxious or depressed. Psychodynamic psychotherapy offers the opportunity to begin to make sense of what underlies your difficulties, come to terms with your losses and discover new perspectives. I strongly believe that an individual needs to arrive at their own understanding of their situation and of what troubles them. This deeper understanding helps you to find a way forward, and to start to feel better.

You may have experienced trauma in its many different forms and intensities, or experience anxiety or other stress related illness. You may find yourself stuck in life, either unable to make that breakthrough to move on - new job, new relationship etc. - or may want to improve your personal performance in some way. You are open to the fact that solutions ultimately come from within and that therapy involves facilitation by the therapist to enable self-discovery. You are comfortable receiving therapy online via video conferencing such as MS Teams, Zoom or Google Meet.

I am here to listen and offer you a confidential, caring and empathic space to gain awareness of your issues.

As a counsellor my primary role is to listen to you with care and attention to ensure you feel heard and understood. In my experience the connection between the client and counsellor is at the heart of what can help bring about positive changes and personal growth. To help facilitate this relationship we will work together to identify your goals for counselling, and I will provide a safe and supportive space to explore the issues and challenges you are currently facing.

Do you feel overwhelmed or anxious? Perhaps you feel stuck in patterns of behaviour as if nothing was ever going to change? Do you struggle with narcissistic relationships and experiences? Perhaps you feel depressed and it is hard to cope with certain feelings or social anxiety. Does it feel that family problems and work are overwhelmingly hard to handle? Do you feel burdened by the past and unable to move on? Are you worried about divorce or your marriage? This is when a therapist like me can help.

I have helped many clients recover from anxiety disorders, depression and self-esteem issues. I have helped clients work on relationship issues so that they are able to live in harmony with others. Most of the issues faced derive from fear, guilt, shame, envy etc. We will work together with your presenting issues and we will also journey into your past to see if we can get to the root of why you feel the way you do and together we will work through any triggers so that your life becomes more manageable. There is nothing more enlightening than self discovery and becoming a more confident version of yourself is extremely empowering.

Living life is not only about being able to absorb the ups and downs, it is also about growing from them too. Yet there may be times when we are unable to grow; unable to live in a way that allows us to feel at our best and get the most from each present moment. It is at these times that it may be useful to speak to a professional counsellor; someone who can know you differently to the way a friend or family member might and who can accept all of who you are safely, honestly and without judgement.

I have worked within an NHS practice and a secondary school for a number of years. This means that my clients have been adults, teenagers and children of different ages, backgrounds, and faiths. As an integrative counsellor I offer short-term and long-term counselling. I support the restoring of positive mental health by using a range of traditional models and creative techniques tailored specfically to each individual client's need. Because I appreciate how daunting it can be meeting a stranger, I offer an initial session at £30, so that my client and I can meet and experience a positive start to therapy. Further sessions are £50

Having a difficult time? Getting better starts with a single conversation. I offer a non-judgemental space in which my clients can work through painful or difficult experiences with warmth and kindness. I aim to provide a secure base in which it is possible to slowly build trust in an on-going therapeutic relationship, empowering the individual to develop the internal resources to cope with the many challenges that life brings. I will listen carefully to whatever my client needs to talk about, without fear of judgment and explore together any difficulties. Please visit my website at jensummerfield.uk for more information.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in SM5 are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in SM5 then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in SM5, or Child Psychologists in SM5.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like SM5 psychologists specialising in EMDR.


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 SM5 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.
