Jeanette LesterIntegrative counsellor
Welcome, I'm Jeanette, a qualified integrative Counsellor. My services are tailored to assist children, young people and adults. I have a DBS enhanced certificate and professional indemnity insurance.
I provide a safe, comfortable, and confidential space with a warm, empathic and down to earth approach. I use a wide variety of approaches including CBT, person-centred and psychodynamic. I combine these approaches according to the client's needs, believing no two people or issue can be solved with one process.
I work from the premise that our early experiences have a big influence on who we are today. From the early years, we learn to adapt to our environment, often at the cost of our more creative and unique aspects. I see those experiences as powerful forces subconsciously shaping our lives, determining how we are in the world now, how we relate to others and what is the relationship with ourselves. Therapy provides an opportunity to heal the wounds of the painful disconnections from the past by expressing your truth in a confidential and non-judgemental space. It can be challenging but it can present opportunities for growth and life that feels more real and satisfying.
Due to the coronavirus epidemic, I currently offer on-line counselling/therapy via Skype, Zoom or phone. All calls are strictly confidential. Get in touch today, for the first initial assessment.
