Counselling to suit you

My name is Jeannette Roddy. I am a qualified, BACP accredited counsellor/psychotherapist dividing my time between Salford in the north west of England and Great Ayton, Cleveland in the north east of England. I qualified as a counsellor 2009, and have worked with a range of different clients, including those who have experienced abuse as children, adults or as employees. I also work as a Senior Lecturer at the University of Salford where I teach on the MSc Counselling and Psychotherapy (Professional Training) and am the clinical lead for the Domestic Abuse Counselling Service, which is part of my research project. My ethos in my counselling practice is the same as in my teaching and supervision: I aim to provide understanding, compassion and consistency in my approach to help you to gain insight and perspective on your experiences and to support you to move forward.

I currently offer counselling sessions as a private practitioner on Monday mornings from 10.00am until 12.30pm and Friday mornings from 10.00am until 12.30pm. Due to the current global situation, sessions are being conducted online via web-based platforms such as Zoom and are available to individuals throughout the UK.

When working face to face, I have my own dedicated practice room which provides a confidential space for the work we do together, although please note that face to face work is not currently possible.

I specialise in working with individuals who are currently having problems at work or who have previously had problems either at home as a child, or within an abusive adult relationship. Emotional and psychological abuse, wherever it has occurred, can be difficult to recognise and yet can affect many different aspects of your life. It can be hard to work out what is happening and you may simply notice that life seems much more difficult now than it used to be. Often people will report feelings of 'walking on eggshells' within significant relationships. I have worked with many people with difficult past experiences to a successful conclusion, although sometimes it takes time to work through everything.

If you are currently having problems at work, or have had problems in the past that continue to resurface from time to time, please do contact me by email (jroddy@answersconsulting.com) to arrange an initial discussion, which is free of charge. Counselling work requires a good and strong relationship and it is important that we feel comfortable working with each other. 
Our initial discussion helps to outline what sort of work we can do together and whether this would be right for you. It is important that you work with a counsellor that you feel understands you and you may wish to talk to a few counsellors before deciding which one would be best for you. We all approach client work in a different way and some ways may suit you better than others!

I try to work flexibly to suit both your needs and your commitments. The number of sessions we have together is up to you, although we will discuss what may be possible with the time available. Both short-term and long-term work can be accommodated, and I have worked long term with a number of people where this has been helpful. I work within the BACP ethical framework and use an integrative approach to counselling which includes solution-focused, person-centred and humanistic elements.

My fees are £50 per session and are 60 minutes long. Generally counselling works best with weekly sessions, although in some circumstances fortnightly sessions can be accommodated. We can discuss options for you when we have our initial discussion.

Accessing counselling can be a positive and life changing experience when working with the right person. Please do contact me to see whether I may be the right person to help you.
