About Counselling and Psychotherapy

I view the work of counselling and psychotherapy as collaborative. We would work together, to decipher where and how things may have gone off track for you and how you can best respond to the challenge/s that you are facing. When therapy works best it can assist you in finding a more deliberate and authentic way of living. As a result of insight, awareness and a deeper understanding of your inner strength, you can feel more empowered and in a sense outgrow your difficulties and experience relief from the symptoms that trouble you.

The Therapeutic Relationship

Research has shown that effective therapy is related to the quality of the relationship you have with your therapist. My style of working focuses on using the relationship with the client as the vehicle for change. I focus on providing a relationship that feels emotionally and psychologically engaging and is responsive to your individual needs.

The Difference Between Counselling and Psychotherapy

The difference between counselling and psychotherapy is a matter of depth and time. In practice the two overlap a lot, but in terms of time and depth, it really depends on the nature and context of the difficulty or distress that you bring. This is something we can discuss and come to an agreement on together.

Client Testimonials

........I never thought that therapy would be something for me. A couple of years on and I think it is one of the best things I have ever done not just for a short term fix, but to enable me to be happy and confident for life. Jacqui is incredibly professional, supportive and has a gentle approach. Having someone completely independent and a dedicated time to focus on myself was a godsend. Jacqui made it feel ok to get some extra support. The anxiety attacks didn't go away at the press of a button but over time I was able to manage it considerably better. My weekly sessions with Jacqui became an important part of my life giving a time to reflect and offload like I had never done before in a guilt free way. It gave me the confidence and support to cope through some major life changes. Since this time I am more calm than I have ever been. I miss my sessions with Jacqui and often think back on the things we discussed. She made a huge difference to my wellbeing and I am truly grateful for that.....

........I immediately felt at ease when I first met Jacqueline and was able to discuss uncomfortable subjects without feeling awkward. One of the best things about my sessions with her was her perception skills. One sentence from Jacqueline would summarise a complex description, show understanding on her part and immediately help me put the issue in context in a way I had previously been unable to. I benefited hugely from working with Jacqueline and would have no hesitation in strongly recommending her.....

........Jacqueline was an incredible help through a period of work related stress and self-doubt. She helped me become far more objective and take action through a combination of deep reflection and very practical exercises and tips. She's extremely approachable, understanding, knowledgeable and highly effective. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.....

........I sought bereavement counselling at a very difficult and transitional time in my life. Jaqui’s sensitive yet constructive approach helped me make sense of a very confusing period in my life. She has a warm and compassionate energy and her listening and easy empathy allowed to me to explore my grief in a safe space. She helped me work through the muddled emotions to gain a clearer picture of how I could move forward with my life. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.....

........I can only thank Jacqueline for the great work we've done together over a two year period. I've found her approach highly professional, engaging and helpful and my sessions have helped me through a difficult period in my life. Jacqueline has provided me with the tools and skills to help me resolve difficulties and solve problems.....
