I'm Jennie, a qualified psychotherapist, couples counsellor, trainer, supervisor and author. Online appointments now available for couples and individuals. During this difficult time one off sessions online looking at how boundaries may help you as an individual and/or couple spending unusual amounts of time together, plus tips for families are available.
With many years of experience, I can offer you individual psychotherapy and couples therapy. Meaning any two people in a relationship.
I have helped clients with a wide range of problems, for example- relationships, depression, bereavement, stress, work-life balance and the impact on health and wellbeing. It can be hard to ask for help, particularly in our busy, be strong culture but the bravest step we can take is to ask for help both as an individual and a couple. Psychotherapy can provide valuable support when there is a crisis and there doesn’t seem to be a way forward.
Boundaries are an important part in a healthy everyday life. I can help you learn about this valuable tool to aid your relationships with yourself and others. In our book we explore the many challenges faced when holding one’s own boundary and how to build healthy ones with ourselves and others. Often boundaries can be thought of as hard or seen as a way of keeping other/others out, in fact boundaries are about health on all fronts and letting those who are beneficial in your life to be closer. Through boundaries your life can and will be richer and healthier.
Couples counselling can be for any stage in a relationship. Sometimes people find it useful before they make a change in their relationship - for example thinking of moving in together, starting a family or considering marriage. There doesn’t need to be a crisis in order to seek help. I offer counselling to all couples – heterosexual, same-sex, family e.g., father-daughter relationship. I can offer help with marriage problems, relationship difficulties within a couple or family members.
Having worked for many years with couples I have developed my own therapeutic programme, this involves both counselling and learning knew skills in how to communicate and deepen understanding of the dynamics in your relationship. The therapy entails an assessment of one hour then eight sessions every two-three weeks that are one and a half hours, this shorter term model has proven to be both popular and successful. I also teach this as a course to other practitioners.
I also offer supervision, please see relevant page for more details on individual supervision, groups and one-off couples supervision-this is for counsellors and psychotherapists who might like the occasional supervision on their couple's work, providing a different perspective and input.
I deliver training on my model for working with couples, The Key to Couples Work, this looks at working with couples from assessment through to endings. Please see training pages for next availability.
Another CPD opportunity is The Art of Therapeutic Story Telling, this will next be delivered online via Physis Scotland www.physisscotland.co.uk
My practice is in Charlotte Square, New Town. Edinburgh
