"IF YOU CAN
PUT IT INTO WORDS THEN I AM WILLING TO HEAR IT"
WHY CHOOSE ME TO HELP YOU?
Hello my name is Jenny, a BACP registered counsellor based in Stockport, Cheshire.
You can be assured that if you want a properly trained and qualified counsellor (as many you will see on the internet are not) then you are in the right place. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and this means I must abide by their ethical code.
I hope that you can find what you need to know about me, how I work and if I am the right counsellor for you on this page. However if your question is not answered here or on my FAQ page, then don't hesitate to give me a call, email me or text, whichever suits you best and I will get back to you as soon as possible, usually the same day. SEE MY CONTACT DETAILS BELOW.
Trying to find a counsellor can be quite a task as there are quite a few out there-who do you choose? This page is where you can find out more about me and hopefully this will help you to make your decision.
In addition to my counselling training I have a strong healthcare background and therefore I have a good understanding of the ways in which our mental health and physical health are connected.
My approach, if working with you, will be relaxed, friendly and interested-in you and everything you say. My interest in mental health has been lifelong. I have studied, experienced and worked with anxiety, panic attacks and other mental health conditions for many years and four years ago I qualified, opening up the possibility of being able to help more people who were suffering. I can offer a calm environment as my counselling room is designed to enable you to feel relaxed. I have gained experience with many issues over the years and these include anxiety, panic attacks, loss, work-life balance, fertility issues, low self esteem and chronic illness.
I love what I do; I find it very fulfilling to be able to help people at the most challenging times in their lives.
You have probably reached here because you feel you need some help. Things may not feel right at the moment, you may be finding life difficult. I specialise in helping people to get anxiety and panic attacks under control but I have helped people to face other challenges. I have had additional training in self harm, suicide and solution focused therapy.
It may be that you are fighting a battle you feel you cannot win, or distressed because you feel as if nothing will ever change for you. I want you to tell me so I can help you, help you to see that life doesn't have to be like this. Provided you can put it into words then I am willing to hear it. Sometimes words aren't needed because we communicate with more than just words so don't worry if you struggle with saying what you feel.
I want you to share with me how anxious you feel, how angry or sad you are. I will listen to your battle with anxiety, panic attacks, painful memories and your frustrations in life.
Once I know what your battles are I can help you to make a start on sorting it all out. Bit by bit, step by step, with me helping you to find your own unique path out of it .
Just by saying those words aloud to me can help you start to feel better. All those tightly held worries, secrets, fears, strange thoughts you can't stop, there really isn't anything you can't say to me.
