Miranda Jackson Existential psychotherapist , BA12
I have practised in central and west London since 2007 and have now moved to Wiltshire where I practise exclusively online, making therapy accessible in rural areas.
I have approval from BUPA, WPA and AVIVA to work with insured clients.
I have a special interest in counselling musicians.
Miranda works with adults individually and in couples across a broad range of issues. She has developed particular specialisms in working with both music students and professional performers on issues such as stage fright and how to face auditions, using techniques which can help anyone who finds giving presentations or job interviews particularly challenging. In addition, prompted by personal experience, she has acquired the skills to counsel those who are suffering from long-term illness or chronic pain yet are still able to work. She has the approval of Professor Leslie Findley, consultant neurologist and founder of the National M.E. Centre, to work with M.E. patients who need to manage their energy and rebalance their lives in order to function within the limitations of the disease.
Prior to training as a therapist, Miranda worked in senior management for an international company. She is experienced in supporting clients facing constructive dismissal, workplace stress, redundancy and bullying. She has worked with clients from a variety of nationalities for whom English is not a first language. Coincidentally the majority of her clients over the last four years have been male; she is equally comfortable working with gay or heterosexual clients and has worked with gay couples on relationship issues as well as straight couples. Prior to training as a therapist Miranda pursued a 30-year career in the music business. You can apply to be seen by her via BAPAM.
She holds two Masters degrees, one of which is in Existential Psychotherapy and has recently acquired the training necessary to offer online counselling, both using Video and instant messaging. Either of these means can be offered to those who travel frequently for work to maintain continuity of counselling.
