Jamie is an integrative therapist whose work is deeply rooted in the person-centred perspective. She received her advanced certificate and diploma in Counselling Psychology from Keele University. She also holds a diploma in child psychology, a certificate in play therapy, and has almost completed a foundation course in infertility counselling.
Jamie has spent the last few years working in a busy GP practice and in a local hospice, but has recently moved over fully into private practice and seems to be enjoying the flexibility and freedom this gives her to pursue different therapeutic techniques and further learning. While much of her experience has been working as a bereavement counsellor her passion for working with families through their infertility journey has led her to take on further specialist training. This allows her work with such issues such as gender difference, same sex family building, the implications of 3rd party donation, and fertility procedures such as IVF and IUI in her own practice and in HFEA clinics in the UK.
In her spare time, Jamie volunteers with a children’s group offering bereavement support for children ages 5-15 and works 1:1 with adolescents and adults.
Jamie is a graduate member and working towards accreditation with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the British Infertility Counselling Association (BICA), and is a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS).
Her goal is to offer you an empathic and non-judgmental therapeutic experience, that is designed to make you feel accepted and safe to explore the furthest corners of your life.
Please feel free to contact Jamie to discuss how psychotherapy might benefit you or with any questions you might have regarding her own practice.
