My Professional Qualifications

Unresolved Past Issues
Social Anxiety Therapy

I hold an MA from Aberystwyth University and a BA (Hons.) from the University of Wales Trinity Saint David. I am also an registered member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I hold a Diploma of Professional Counselling from the Vancouver College of Counsellor Training (VCCT), and am registered member of the Association of Cooperative Counselling Therapists of Canada (ACCT).

The core of my counsellor training includes Psychosocial Development, Psychopathology, Family Counselling, Abnormal Psychology, Counselling Seniors, Cross-Cultural Counselling, Art therapy, Aboriginal Counselling, and CBT therapy for Social Anxiety and Generalized Anxiety Disorder.

I also have training as a workshop leader in Chronic Pain Self-Management (CPSMP) and Diabetes Self-Management (DSMP) Techniques from the University of Victoria’s Centre on Ageing.

My Therapeutic Philosophy

I believe we all need at least one person in our corner who believes in us, accepts us unconditionally, and provides consistent positive encouragement. Therapists can provide that mentorship that may have been missing from your life, shining the light on your best qualities and reminding you of them when you forget.

Hello, Sensitive Artists!

As a highly sensitive person, I am especially attuned to artists who find that operating in the “real” world can be difficult. (How many times have you heard “You’re too sensitive”?) The gift of intuition is a great one for artists and therapists, and allows us to tap into the core of the matter quickly. I combine this gift of intuition with solid training in effective counselling skills, using modalities such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counselling, Mindfulness Meditation techniques, and Art Therapy.

About Me

My strengths lie in my ability to listen and communicate clearly, using deep empathy skills and employing my genuine curiosity about people.

My journey into the world of counselling came later in life and after different career paths, including working as a professional marketing copywriter, which has contributed to the essential listening skills and insight about people that I use as a counsellor. Nothing gives me more enjoyment than asking people questions and learning about their unique inner world.

Personal Journey to Counselling

I lived in three different countries growing up: England, New Zealand and Canada. My nomadic background has given me plenty of insight into cultural differences. It has enabled me to have empathy for immigrant experiences, and as someone who also grew up in a stepfamily, I understand the challenges of blended-family life.

When I’m not counselling

Outside of the counselling environment, I’m an avid baker, an animal lover, dancer, and movie-nerd. I am also a creative writer, writing primarily comedy and speculative fiction, and use my writing skills to coach clients with narrative therapy.

Social Anxiety Therapy

“I can’t say enough positive things about Jenny. I tried other therapists and they just weren’t the right fit. Jenny helped me come to understand myself more and we worked as a team together, customizing tools that worked best for me. If you want a therapist that gets results, I would recommend Jenny.” – Samantha P.
