My background is in care and education and I have extensive experience of working with children and young adults. I currently work as a Learning Mentor within a Primary School.  I am a trained “Thrive” practioner and use this approach when supporting children with their emotional and social development. It is based upon neuroscience, attachment theory and child development.  I have also volunteered as a counsellor for students at Weston College, Addaction (an alcohol and drug addiction charity) as well as a charity for adult counselling.

The task of counselling is to give the client an opportunity to explore, discover and clarify ways of living more resourcefully and towards greater well-being.

Counselling can help with many conditions, incluing anxiety, depression, stress & panic attacksCounselling can help:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Panic Attacks
  • Self-worth and Self-esteem
  • Relationships
  • Abuse
  • Addictions
  • OCD
  • Self-harm
  • Trauma
  • Childhood experiences

Clients come to counselling for many reasons, the list above is by no means extensive but it may give you some ideas of how counselling can help.

Counselling and the therapeutic process allows you to explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions. It’s important that the relationship between you and the counsellor feels trustworthy and safe. My job is to create that unique environment where you feel comfortable, safe, heard and not judged.  This allows you the time and space to enable you to understand yourself and your situation so that you can start to make positive steps towards enjoying a more satisfying and fulfilling life.

What Can I Expect?

Counselling RoomI offer a no-obligation initial consultation. This provides you with the opportunity to ask me questions about the therapy process and to explore whether you feel we could work together.

We are all individual so it is difficult to say how long therapy will last, so I offer short-term 6-12 sessions and long term open-ended therapy.  The sessions last for 60 minutes and we will regularly review our work together to assess your next steps.

I contacted Jackie after a period of illness which left me feeling very low. I had never visited a counsellor before and was nervous about what to expect. I need not have worried because Jackie provided a safe and comfortable environment which quickly put me at ease. She is extremely professional, empathetic and a very good listener. I found that she was skilled at asking the right questions just at the right time which encouraged lots of self-reflection. Through my visits to Jackie, I have had the confidence to make significant changes in my life and have gone from strength to strength. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jackie to anyone.


I highly recommend going to see Jackie when I first saw her I didn't have much confidence, I was very anxious and my crutch was food. But now after finishing my counselling with her I am enjoying life, I can actually say I am happy, and I have dropped two sizes in clothes.


I contacted Jackie as my daughter P was struggling with anxiety and lack of self confidence at school which was really impacting on her life. Right from the start Jackie was kind and considerate with her and provided a safe space where these issues could be explored.

Jackie used a variety of methods and made sure she explained everything thoroughly to P. It was a delight to see P willing to talk about things that worried her and see her want to make changes.

Together they came up with effective strategies for the times P felt anxious or full of self doubt. My daughter also felt able to share these with me which was fantastic.

Jackie kept me fully informed without breaking any confidences and was available to talk through things with me. I felt confident and comfortable leaving P with her and P certainly felt at ease with Jackie. She liked the fact that she was listened to, her feelings acknowledged and that she wasn't made to feel 'silly' for how she felt. P felt understood and cared for and as a result she made progress.

I would not hesitate to recommend Jackie and know that we can always contact her again should the need arise.
