Barbara Jukes UKCP, MBACP
We all experience difficult periods in our life and my intention is to help you through this time. By listening to you with understanding and acceptance my intention is that we work together, collaboratively to make the changes you desire. Many people find taking that first step, in reaching out for help, quite daunting. I fully recognise how difficult it can be, especially if you've never had any form of counselling or psychotherapy before. I particularly welcome newcomers to counselling and psychotherapy in my practice.
My approach is to offer clients a safe, non judgemental space to explore feelings and issues which may be troubling. Occasionally, I may offer information or make tentative suggestions. Sometimes I may offer an exercise as a way to look at something in a more creative way, which you may choose to try or not. I don’t tell my clients what to do, but support them on their journey. I like to adapt my way of working to suit your individual needs.
I am an experienced person-centred practitioner and offer one to one sessions. I believe that the 'therapeutic alliance' or our connection is important in supporting a good outcome. I have experience in working with issues such as :-

- Self Esteem
