Life brings many things to us, some are light relief which can bring us happiness. Whilst other matters can leave us feeling overwhelmed, hurt and bruised. We then spend a lot of time and energy keeping a lid on our pain. We could call this unfinished business. This is where counselling can help you to live more fully. Hurts can have a voice and be heard, allowing the burden to lift. Hope for a brighter and more balanced tomorrow is found in my counselling room. Begin your journey of recovery by contacting me, Jackie, at Counselling JCT.
Hello my name is Jackie and welcome to my website. I am a Counsellor, Supervisor and Trainer, practising in Kendal, Cumbria and Garstang (Preston/Lancaster).
I have been a counsellor for the last 15 years and absolutely love what I do.
My passion is to help you overcome challenges that present in your life, by providing support during that process, whilst enabling you, to make the difference that you feel is right for you and your circumstances.
Above all my aim is for you to be able to flourish in day to day life. In my counselling room, I bring respect, kindness, and warmth so that you feel empowered to make changes in your life.
I have worked within a wide range of settings during the last 15 years, ranging from national charities, education environments, as well as the voluntary and private sectors.
My counselling work has encompassed working with both adults and young people. This has covered issues such as young people in care, rape crisis centres, educational issues - low self esteem/anxiety/self harm, bereavement, national helplines, as well as in-house consultancies to staff teams.
I have a special interest in the field of Trauma, Burnout and Recovery and have undertaken significant study in this area of specialism.
"Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much"
Please feel free to contact me and seek the help and support that you deserve. It is an opportunity for us to meet, where we can decide the best way forward and for you to see if my approach suits you.
I look forward to hearing from you.
