I’m Jennifer – a BACP registered counsellor often to be found in the woods of Shropshire! That means that as well as being sure that I’ve the appropriate training and qualifications, you know that I’m a member of a professional body and take their standards and working to their ethical framework very seriously.
Being honest with my clients is vital so I’ll say straight out that I make no promise to “fix” anyone and If you’re looking for a counsellor with all the answers then I’m not the counsellor for you. You might wonder what the point is then? Well there are decades of research into the benefits that counselling can bring and how it really can transform your life.
I’m trained in the Person Centred approach. This means that I won’t try to analyse you, won’t interpret your dreams and won’t tell you what to do. It means that I trust that in each of us is the answers to the questions in our own lives – I’ll bring my experience and training in creating a constructive therapeutic relationship and you’ll bring your knowledge and expertise in being you and hopefully between us we’ll find your own solutions to your issues.
For traditional room based one to one therapy I’m based in central Shrewsbury as well as in Leegomery, Wellington and Madeley in Telford. If you’d prefer “Walk and Talk” or outdoors ecotherapy in and around then I mainly work from a woodland just outside Wellington, Telford, but other venues in Shropshire, Ironbridge and The Wrekin are possible. As well as Your Nature I also volunteer as a counsellor at various charities in the West Midlands and Wales.
