A Bit About Jennifer

Dr Jennifer is a Registered Health Psychologist who has been providing psychological therapies since qualifying from Staffordshire University in 2014. She began working privately primarily with adults suffering with mental health difficulties and takes an individualised approach to therapy, often implementing a Compassion Focused Therapy approach throughout much of her work. She also offers Couples Therapy to partners struggling with their romantic relationships, primarily using the Gottman therapeutic and interventional approach. 

 

In 2018 she launched the first high-street mental health clinic in the Preston area called the Talking Therapies Centre. This centre offers various therapies including counselling for both adults and children, psychotherapy, psychological treatments and clinical hypnotherapy. She is a full member of the British Psychological Society and Health & Care Professions Council and member of the Special Group in Coaching Psychology. 

 

Previously Jennifer has been an affiliate of Edge Hill University, teaching students on the undergraduate Psychology course and of the University of Liverpool where she worked with the Cochrane Epilepsy Group as a systematic reviewer for three years. She has authored over 50 Cochrane reviews several of which have influenced the NICE guidelines on the prescription of anti-epileptic drugs during pregnancy. 

 

Jennifer strives to offer the people of Preston and surrounding areas a warm, welcoming and comfortable safe space to overcome their life problems. 

Client Testimonials

"I had been struggling with severe depression, Jennifer helped me understand, helped me deal with my emotions and how to achieve my goals. I would recommend Jennifer 100%, she is a warm, caring person, she has brought me back from the depths of despair"

"After feeling quite low, lethargic, anxious and depressed for quite some time, I came to realise that I needed some help and so I got in touch with Jennifer. The first few sessions we just talked about how I was feeling about my life and things that had happened along the way.

After several sessions Jennifer had prepared something on paper which almost instantly made sense of the chaos that I had been feeling in my mind.

Jennifer was so lovely throughout, and over the 6 months really helped me to improve my mood mindset and put tools in place to maintain it. I am so grateful for the opportunity to work things through with her!"

 

"I sought out therapy as I felt my life was being controlled by my sickness phobia and I was choosing not to do daily activities that normally I would in order to avoid certain situations. After 15 sessions I now feel more in control of my own life and my choices. I also feel more confident in my own ability to cope with situations if they arise.

Jennifer empowered me to be able to do things I never thought I would be able to face, but also really took time to know me. I am now at a maintenance stage in my journey, but know that Jennifer will be there to support if required in the future. Thank you for giving me my enjoyment of life back!!!!"
