Jessica Terry, MBACP, MNCPS Acc.
Individual, Person-Centred Counselling
Jess is a registered, person-centred counsellor, providing individual sessions to help with a wide range of issues, such as low self-esteem, anxiety, low mood and bereavement. She has worked with a number of charitable and not-for-profit organisations, in addition to working with groups and individuals in corporate settings.
Jess now runs her own private practice, based in Wilmslow, Cheshire and will be offering sessions here at the clinic on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
As a person-centred counsellor, Jess believes that we all, as humans, have the potential for growth and for self-actualisation, given the right environment. Her aim as a counsellor is therefore to create that environment, through the therapeutic relationship.
Jess practices a non-directive approach, allowing you, the client, to lead the session in whatever direction you feel is most crucial. As Carl Rogers said, “It is the client who knows what hurts, what directions to go, what problems are crucial, what experiences have been deeply buried.”
“With so many demands on your time, it’s easy to find yourself at the bottom of your priority list. There’s always something or someone that needs your attention, so the idea of self-care may seem like an indulgence that you just don’t have time for. We often find however, that life has a way of making us stop and listen, whether that be through a physical or mental health concern, family or relationship difficulty, problems at work or a major life event. I’m here to help you through these challenges. In our sessions, I will help you to explore what’s going on emotionally so that you can find out what’s lying underneath any uncomfortable feelings. The transformative power of being accepted, just as you are, without judgement and of being truly seen and heard, is like no other. It’s a journey of self-discovery and in my experience, a journey that leads to an enhanced feeling of wellbeing.”
