Dr Jeannette Roddy, Registered Member MBACP (Accred)
Offering online counselling across the UK
Moving from surviving to thriving
Moving from surviving to thriving


My name is Jeannette Roddy. I am an experienced, qualified, BACP accredited counsellor/psychotherapist, who has worked as a therapist, supervisor and counselling trainer for over 10 years.  I qualified as a counsellor in 2009, and have worked in a range of counselling environments including general counselling, work related stress and bereavement, and with survivors of abuse.

Since qualification, I have also completed extensive research on counselling with people who have experienced domestic abuse, writing several papers and a book based on my findings. These findings formed the basis of the successful specialist domestic abuse clinic I opened whilst working at the University of Salford and are incorporated into my own practice, providing benefits for both clients and supervisees. 
I am currently working online across the UK to reach clients and supervisees who do not have counsellors specialising in working with experiences of abuse locally. I also offer in-person counselling and supervision at my private practice in Great Ayton, North Yorkshire for those who can travel there.

Counselling

I specialise in working with individuals who are currently having problems at work, or who have previously had problems 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 at the time and sometimes also into the future. It can be hard to work out what is happening and you may simply have noticed that life seems much more difficult now than it used to be or that relationships are harder to manage. I have worked with many people with difficult past experiences to a successful conclusion.


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. Clients tell me that they find my style of counselling warm and caring, as well as perceptive.

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.

Online counselling sessions are available via Zoom throughout the week. Face to face sessions are currently available on a Monday.

Please email me (see below) to determine current availability of sessions at jroddy@answersconsulting.com. Once we have made contact and can see the possibility of work together, I offer a 30-minute free of charge discussion to check that we have the right 'fit' to work together. 
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!
 
My fees are £60 per session and sessions are 60 minutes long. Generally counselling works best with weekly sessions, although recognising the costs associated with ongoing weekly therapy can be high, fortnightly sessions can be accommodated in some circumstances. 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. 

If you are thinking of accessing counselling, please do contact me to see whether I may be the right person to work with you.

Supervision

I offer supervision to qualified therapists online or in-person. If you would be interested in working together please contact me on jroddy@answersconsulting.com.



Training


I also offer counselling training for counsellors working with survivors of abuse. The training is based on a model of abuse that allows for work with people of any gender, sexuality or ethnicity which is different to most models of practice in the UK today. The training can also be adapted for other professionals, such as health professionals or social workers. If this is of interest to you, please email my training organisation for further details at info@dactari.co.uk.
