I highly recommend Jackie in many ways as a professional, and also as a person- while dedicated to her work with deep seriousness her vibrant personality and, mindfully used by Jackie only when appropriate, wonderful sense humour makes Jackie a joy to be around
I work with clients face to face in London, Tynemouth (NE30), Newcastle upon Tyne, Online and Internationally.
Online and Phone Sessions
I offer online sessions via secure video conferencing – Skype, Zoom and Google Meets, or via phone. This is something that we can agree on during our initial consultation.
Duration and Frequency of Sessions
I usually see my clients once a week for 50 minutes, though longer individual sessions can be arranged. Depending on your schedule and needs we may want to meet more frequently than this.
Sometimes depending upon clinical need, clients opt for twice weekly sessions, some have three each week. Clients having DBT often request more than one session weekly.
I offer fortnightly sessions only when a client is nearing the end of their therapy.
The type, frequency and duration of your treatment will be discussed at the introductory consultation and will be periodically revisited.
I tend to meet my clients on the same day and the same time every week. This means I can guarantee I am available for you on your given day and time.
It is important to attend therapy regularly in order to achieve your goals. Protecting some space in your diary makes this easier to achieve.
Rescheduling and Cancellation Policy
While it is important to try to attend regular weekly sessions, I understand that there may be times when this is not possible and I try to be flexible and work around these times with you.
I operate a 48–hour rescheduling and cancellation policy, which means that I will not charge if you give notice of 48 hours or more. If you need to reschedule, I will try to offer a suitable time, however, if I am unable to, the full fee is due. If you cancel with less than 48–hours notice, then the full fee is payable
Thank you so very much for all of your hard work. You are an incredible therapist and an inspirational, exceptional and influential person.
I saw Jackie under sufferance, as penance perhaps for a failed suicide attempt. Years of alcohol and medication abuse, chronic insomnia, anxiety and numerous other challenges from the psychotherapist handbook. I spent a year with her, once a week being guided to understand the events that made for such a chaotic and dysfunctional life. Once that was done, Jackie armed me with the tools to step forward and recognise the signs which would have me step back. I owe her more than perhaps modesty would have her realise. An outstanding counsellor who always knew when I was dodging the issue.
Jackie, you were a massive part of my early recovery and a source of inspiration to this day.
Firstly to thank you for all the incredible help over the last four weeks. I’ve learnt so much about myself and my behaviours in my sessions with you, and I leave with a lot of learnings and tools.
Thanks again Jackie, I will never be grateful enough to you,for your insight and support.
Wishing you a very Happy New year and thank you for being a major influence in reigniting my recovery , I really mean that.
I was thinking about my time in therapy this morning and how strong and resolute I’ve become all with your help! II can’t believe how far I’ve come !
Thank you so much, I couldn’t have done this without you.
After many years, 30 plus in fact of crippling addiction, an addiction that escalated to many life-threatening experiences, I finally surrendered to the powerlessness of my situation and reached out for help.
I was incredibly fortunate to find Jackie. Jackie became my focal therapist in residential rehabilitation.
I spent many months under the care of a person who worked tirelessly to unravel my troubled mind.
To say that I am eternally grateful doesn’t begin to do justice to someone who literally kick-started the process of saving my own life.
I can’t recommend Jackie highly enough.
Four years of blissful sobriety later, I am living my best life now, and whilst it hasn’t always been easy, we do recover.
Please just ask for help as I did and you could also begin a fantastic new path with Jackie’s guidance
Just wanted to say sorry I didn’t get to see you before you left. It was a real pleasure working with you. You have a great way of working with clients
Hopefully our paths will cross sometime best of luck in the future.
