As a psychologist for over 15 years, Jenny has gained a wealth of experience in counselling and coaching individuals to realise their potential in both their personal and professional lives. Jenny always had a passion for supporting people’s health and wellbeing. Before completing her Psychology Masters, she spent many years as a registered nurse, midwife and baby health consultant, often helping people to navigate grief and loss, life changes, stress, depression, anxiety, and relationship and parenting issues. Jenny is a mother, grandmother, partner, friend, and the proud owner of laugh lines.
Jenny offers you a safe place to express your private thoughts and feelings. She enjoys working closely with you to address your current concerns and to equip you with skills and effective strategies that will allow you to bounce back from future difficulties and challenges.
Jenny loves to see and help couples to support them through a rough patch. She is Level 2 trained in the Gottman Method of relationship counselling and therapy at the renowned Gottman Institute. She has training in Emotion-Focussed Couples Therapy (EFCT) and Dan Wile’s collaborative couples therapy (CCT).
Jenny helps you discover your real self. Her positive approach will refresh you and give you courage to move in a better direction towards the future you want. Jenny’s techniques are flexible, accommodating, and respectful of your personal needs and comfort. She incorporates techniques from a variety of evidence-based approaches rather than relying on a single method. She particularly embraces acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), mindfulness techniques, solution focused therapy, positive psychology and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).
