About Me and My Practice
My name is Jeannie and I come from Yorkshire in England. I offer therapy based in honesty, warmth and a non-judgemental acceptance of whatever the client chooses to bring to their consultation.
My experience in counselling includes issues such as anxiety, depression, self-confidence, addictions, and many more.
I have counselled adolescents, supporting them in their transition into adulthood, and also with adults, both male and female. I work in a relational way, with a holistic view of the self.
I'm qualified in an integrative approach, allowing me to offer a choice of ways of working together. I recognise one size does not fit all, and for you to get the best out of me, it's important you feel you can work with me.

Formal QualificationsLevel 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (Wiltshire College, Lackham, UK)
Other Training or ExperienceFollowing qualifying, I continued my professional growth and trained in using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
CBT offers a more practical approach to therapy by focusing on how our beliefs and perceptions of situations in our lives can affect our chosen behaviours.
By working with our beliefs about our world, and by questioning how accurate these often long held beliefs are for us in present day situations, we can see old patterns and discover new ones for ourselves.
I have also continued to develop over the years and welcome the inception of online media. I offer online counselling, having trained and qualified in this. For more information, please see www.counsellingonthe.net
