Jess HenleyIntegrative psychotherapist
Are you struggling with feelings of depression and anxiety? Have you experienced a trauma that you can’t seem to overcome? Are you stuck in your head with ruminating thoughts, or do you keep repeating behavioural patterns that don’t serve you? Perhaps you’re always dating the same kind of person with no success? Or maybe, on paper, your life looks great but somehow you can’t feel the happiness to match it. If so, then please reach out to me.
I am an experienced psychotherapist, with over 12 years in the field, who will work with you to help you understand what’s triggering you, what’s keeping you stuck and what’s stopping you from being who you want to be. I’ll help you heal old wounds and give you tools and techniques that you can implement in your day-to-day life to help you overcome the difficult hurdles you’re experiencing.
How I work
During our sessions together I’ll use a range of different types of therapy according to what you find the most productive – they will range from:
Talking and reflecting so we can learn how you, uniquely, function.
Mindfulness and meditations which will help you connect with your body and stay in the present so you can more easily overcome your triggers.
Visualisations, which are a type of guided meditation, to help us better understand your unhelpful subconscious drives so you can work to relax them.
IFS which is a type of therapy that helps us understand which parts of you are being triggered at what times, so we can get you feeling more in balance.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which is a unique technique that helps heal trauma however big or small. It works by accessing traumatic memories and then processing them, so they move from being something disabling you still experience in the present, to being a memory that you understand happened in your past, but you don’t have to carry in your daily life any more.
I totally understand that getting started can often be daunting and overwhelming so be assured that when reaching out, you’re entering a safe and confidential space. Drop me an email and I will aim to get back you within 24 hours with any availability.
What to expect
In the initial session we will get to know each other and you can explain what brings you to therapy. From there we can decide together, what is the best approach to take and how many sessions we feel might be needed. Most commonly we would start with one session a week for 6 sessions before we review and evaluate progress, then we can explore how you’re finding that process and decide how to proceed.
