Welcome to my counselling website. My name is Jen and my pronouns are she / her. I am based in South Essex, working online and over the telephone. I work almost entirely with adult clients who are neurodivergent and / or disabled or who have a family member or friend who is. Many of my clients are also members of the LGBTQIA+ community and / or are members of the global majority. I offer a service which is affirming of difference, non-judgemental and embedded within an anti-discrimination approach to the best of my ability. I’m an accredited member of the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society (NCPS) membership number is NCS20-01607 and also member of the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online (ACTO) membership number 1321.
Coming to counselling for the first time can be daunting. The sheer number of therapists available to choose from can be really overwhelming, so how do you find the right one to trust? You might not think you have anything to talk about; you might be worried about sharing things with someone who is not a family member or close friend; you might find it hard to trust someone new; or you might find the idea of change through therapy difficult or even impossible to achieve. You may feel that you don’t have the time or energy to spend on your own emotional needs. That’s why it’s so important to find the right counsellor for you.
I can offer you a safe space and time to talk, to feel heard, and to reenergise. Our sessions together are yours and I’m not an expert in your life; I won’t tell you what to do but I will work with you to find ways to deal with the issues, thoughts or feelings that you are facing each day.
