About Me

Jacqueline Thompson

Psychotherapist/CBT Therapist/Counsellor

Accredited Member of BABCP 00001000084

Committing to change can often be the hardest part of therapy. Whether you are living with anxiety, low mood, intrusive thoughts, impulsive behaviours, or you are self soothing using addictive substances and behaviours, by accessing therapy you will begin to understand yourself better and with less judgement. You will find yourself more able to make the changes you want to make to feel better. 


Feelings are valid and should be attended to, however thoughts are not always based on fact and can sometimes keep us stuck in an unhappy place. By testing their validity, we can work on more adaptive thoughts to help you meet your goals.

Face to Face

Talking about personal things can feel daunting. However, my clients mention feeling heard, free from judgement and respected, in a way not often found in every day life. They feel comfortable and more able to deal with the challenges they face. 


I work face to face, but during COVID times I learned that online work has great benefits and so this will always be part of my practice, when required. 


My work is regularly supervised, in line with stipulations for ethical working by the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and the British Association of Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapists (BABCP). I am also fully insured, registered with the BACP and working towards accreditation.
