About me

My name is Jackie and I'm a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I have a Diploma in Counselling Practice and I'm a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I'm committed to promoting ethical practice and I adhere to the BACP's EthicaI Framework.

I have worked within the caring professions for over 20 years and feel passionate about helping people to realise their 'life' potential and in doing so improve their overall well being, mental health and relationships. We sometimes struggle to break the cycle of unhealthy patterns and need help to understand what is going on, unravel it and find clarity. Making the decision to have counselling can be profoundly life changing and can help you to reconnect with yourself and others.

But it's all about you...

I work with people regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, beliefs or ethnicity.  Everyone who contacts Elbow Room Therapy is treated with equal respect and supported in a non-judgemental way. Support is tailored according to what you most want to achieve and in a way in which you want to engage.
