Jenna is an honorary integrative counsellor currently studying for a Level 4 diploma in counselling at City Lit. She believes every client is unique so works with an integrative approach drawing on different therapeutic skills including Person-centred and Psychodynamic. This allows her to truly recognise individual differences and needs and offer the right type of support in a reliable and consistent manner.
Jenna passionately believes in building respectful, trusted and collaborative relationships so clients can have the opportunity to explore their experiences, behaviours, thoughts and feelings in a space where they feel listened to, understood and accepted. It is her hope that through this relational experience, clients can develop an awareness and understanding of their concerns which can lead to greater acceptance, resilience and a more meaningful and fulfilling experience.
Jenna has volunteered for a range of organisations in the UK and abroad including mental health charity Shout, Raleigh International and Thrombosis UK. All these experiences have given her the opportunity to connect with others, gain greater cultural understanding and see how truly listening can encourage openness. They also furthered her knowledge of a vast range of issues from suicidal ideation, trauma, stress, relationships and mental health disorders and the impact they have.
Before training to be a counsellor, Jenna’s background in television production has given her vast experience in adaptability and resourcefulness. The highlight of her experience was working closely with teams to help grow and maintain a working environment which fostered members wellbeing so they were able to find best solutions to problems they faced.
A registered student member of the BACP, Jenna works within their ethical framework to maintain a safe and professional practice. Jenna has a naturally empathetic, thoughtful and warm presence. She is committed to her own self-exploration, a keen traveller and music lover.
