About Me

I'm Jen, a person-centred counsellor working with adults from my room in Northwich, Cheshire. I am fully insured, registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psycotherapy (BACP), and have an enhanced DBS Certificate.

Prior to my counselling training I worked for over 20 years with people with learning difficulties, autism, physical disabilities and the elderly, and I love that I am still able to make a difference to the lives of people in my work as a counsellor. I decided to begin my journey as a trainee counsellor after I myself realised through counselling that I didn't need to 'hold it all in', recognising that talking about things really does help.

I work with many different issues with males and females, and have extensive experience of working with issues surrounding domestic violence, sexual abuse, historic childhood abuse, suicidal thoughts and feelings, PTSD, and self harm.

As well as my private work, I also volunteer for an organisation providing counselling to survivors of abuse, predominently childhood sexual abuse.

 

 

 

'People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, 'Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner. ' I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.'

(Carl Rogers - founder of person centred counselling)
