Welcome

Hello and welcome to my website and my practice.
My name is Jenny Freeman and I am a Person-centred counsellor based in Guildford, Surrey.
The main issues I work with are:

  • anxiety

  • depression

  • loss, bereavement, divorce

  • relationship issues

  • Covid pandemic anxiety

  • addiction recovery

I understand how difficult it can be to decide who to turn to when you want to seek help with managing life's difficulties. The decision is very personal and must be based on what feels right to you.

I want to offer you a warm, safe therapeutic space where you can feel free to explore what hurts or causes distress, without fear of judgement.

My commitment is to work with you in such a way as to allow anything you want to discuss to be received empathetically and confidentially in a safe space.

In the therapeutic hour I will be dedicated to listening deeply and attempting to understand your world, in your words.

From there we will together discover how best to approach your challenges, how to find new ways to live more freely and in accordance with your true self.

My philosophy

I believe that human beings have an enormous capacity to heal and to overcome. It is never too late to transcend and transform our experiences into learning, so we can move forward.

 

I want to create the opportunity for my clients to understand themselves better, to discover what truly holds meaning for them personally and to be able to live in accordance with these core values. It is crucial for me to convey to my clients that they can be themselves fully and without shame and embarrassment, during our sessions. I will offer acceptance and the willingness to accompany you through your explorations of life's hurts, whatever they may be.

Ethical practice

I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework (2018).

Ethics specifies the values, principles and personal moral  qualities that inform my work and I pledge to ensure that my client's wellbeing is always central to my practice. 

I undergo regular monthly clinical supervision with an experienced practitioner. Supervision protects clients by involving an impartial third party in the work of a counsellor and client, helping to reduce the risk of serious oversight and helping the counsellor concerned to reflect on their own feelings, thoughts, behaviour and general approach with the client. Client identities are kept anonymous.
