A warm welcome to you. Discover about my counselling practice based in Stratford upon Avon and Leamington Spa. Here, you can find out who I am as a counsellor and how therapy can help you.
Thinking about counselling?
Maybe you have experienced a bereavement or loss and need to find a way through your pain and suffering? Perhaps you are having relationship issues? Are you suffering from anxiety and want to take back control of your life? Have you been involved in a traumatic event which is limiting how you experience life now? Would you like to be more confident and work on your self-esteem? Perhaps an addiction has taken over your life? Sometimes you may feel so low and depressed that you don’t recognise yourself. It may be a combination of a range of issues that have built up.
Counselling can help you to explore these and other issues you may experience. Why not get in touch to explain in your own words what you want help with? I would love to hear from you.
Who am I?
My name is Jenny and I’m an experienced, qualified counsellor based in Warwickshire. My practice is set up for counselling in Leamington Spa and Stratford-Upon-Avon.
I am a person who has experienced my own ups and downs in life. I’ve sat in the client chair and know how difficult and challenging it can be. Equally, I understand how fulfilling counselling can be for anyone wanting to make life changes.
My life changed for the better by seeking help. And I decided to use my broad range of life experiences to help others by training to be a therapist. So, I have found my calling by becoming a counsellor. I am able to genuinely empathise with the difficulties many of us encounter in our day to day living.
Counselling is all about you and me
My approach emphasises the development of our relationship in therapy. This is key to counselling being effective for you. My intention is to be genuine, empathic, and compassionate. I am non-judgemental to help you feel understood and valued as a person. I am passionate about getting to know you. I want to help you to reduce your distress and encourage your ongoing mental well-being.
Find your answers
For counselling to make a difference, it usually takes a number of sessions. Furthermore, a regular commitment can help us to work together to make the best use of therapy. During sessions, sharing your fears and worries can be a relief as your feelings are heard and acknowledged. With support, you can find your own answers which will make sense to you long-term.
The right counsellor for you
It is a good idea to meet a potential counsellor for an initial session. This provides an opportunity to see if we can work together. Furthermore, choosing a therapist that you feel comfortable with builds trust. This helps you to feel safe enough to open up about your problems.
Counselling is a safe space
The counselling relationship provides a space to explore your difficult feelings. As your counsellor, I’ll listen and provide understanding without judgement. So, you’ll develop insight and self-understanding.
My one-to-one counselling experience encompasses a wide variety of client issues. Some of these are below and more information is available by clicking each link.
In counselling, clients often talk about painful feelings. This can feel daunting at first. Sometimes, you may feel worse before you feel better as you start to open up. Throughout our time together in therapy, I will compassionately accompany you. As your supportive therapist, I will help you through this work. Together we’ll see improvements.
I welcome diversity including all body sizes, ages, abilities, races, sexualities, genders, religions and political values.
