We provide access to talking therapies/psychotherapy, mainly Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) using health psychology theories and skills from the counselling domain. We also use other talking therapies. Think of us as health coaches for the mind and body; when you are saying to yourself “I can’t cope”, we will help you cope in a positive way.
We provide these non-judgemental services in a confidential environment and will collaborate with you in an empathic manner in order to resolve your pain.

Do you want to cope better with stress or any other health issues?
Do you want to feel fitter and improve the quality of your life?
Do you suffer with insomnia and want to improve the quality of your sleep?
If the answer is “yes” to any of these questions, then you would benefit from 6 sessions or more, face-to-face with a health psychologist.
For example, if you have joint pain we would discuss ways of how it impinges on your quality of life and vice versa. Also on how to improve your sleep, change some of your habits and introduce some gentle exercise. We would help you manage your support systems.
Jacqueline also works with people who have anxieties including health anxiety, some phobias, OCD, depression and PTSD.
Jacqueline has a DBS certificate and can therefore see children and adolescents as well as adults.
