Jess OrlikIntegrative psychotherapist
Individual psychotherapy & couples therapy
People come to psychotherapy for many reasons. It may be that you are having difficulties in relationships, at work or in your family life. Others come because they find themselves repeating limiting or painful patterns of behaviour.
I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space in which your thoughts and feelings can be expressed, explored and understood.
I work with couples experiencing ongoing difficulties or a crisis in their relationship, providing a space where confusing or painful events and feelings can be safely understood, and restoring the possibility of healthy intimacy.
How I work
My training is in humanistic and integrative psychotherapy. Humanistic therapy suggests that when we experience empathy and positive regard we will naturally heal, grow and discover our unique potential. Integrative therapy means that a variety of therapeutic approaches and ideas are known and so the therapist can sensitively adapt to the needs of each individual.
I am also very influenced by my barefoot practitioner training and by my experiences as a client of craniosacral therapy. These approaches have much in common with mindfulness, and view the body as integral in working with emotional difficulties.
I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist and have worked in private practice since 2013. I also worked for two years as an honorary psychotherapist in the NHS.
