Make a Head Start with Jenny
I am a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist and Counsellor with almost 30 years of experience. Accredited with the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy (BABCP), I have worked in a variety of roles and settings over the course of my career. I have provided therapy and training at Universities and Colleges in the North West, within GP surgeries, NHS Psychological Services and Occupational Health settings. Research and teaching experience add to my skills profile. I currently provide Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust, working with individuals with a variety of problems. These range from anxiety disorders (generalised anxiety, panic, OCD, health anxiety, PTSD etc.), through mood disorders (depression and dysthymia), low self-esteem, body dysmorphic disorder and eating disorders. I also offer private face-to-face, telephone and online therapy, depending on level of need, preference and location.
CBT is an evidence-based, talking therapy, usually delivered over an extended period of time, typically 12-20 one-hour sessions. Research indicates that CBT is most effective when delivered weekly, and strategies and techniques are practiced between sessions. It is a collaborative therapy and is tailored to each individual.
Counselling is another talking therapy, usually offered to individuals who need space and time to work through difficult feelings. It can be just as effective as CBT, and focusses on working through confused or conflicted emotions, emotional pain/loss etc. Counselling can be as brief or as lengthy as required.
In order to offer meaningful support, assessment sessions, a simple contract and regular reviews are built in to therapy. These ensure clarity, appropriateness and shared therapeutic goals for all concerned.
