Dr Clemmie Jacques
I am a friendly and compassionate therapist who works collaboratively with my clients to help empower them in their recovery journey. As a previous service user myself, I offer a non-judgmental understanding of the everyday and long term problems clients face as they work towards overcoming their problems. I build strong therapeutic relationships with my clients and have an awareness of many cultural perspectives.I am an HCPC registered Counselling Psychologist with over 10 year's experience working with mental health problems. I work with the NHS, the Priory, as well as with community-based charities such as MIND. I have completed a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology at City University, two separate Masters in Research and Psychoanalytic methods at University College London. Combined with this experience and qualifications I continue to volunteer by working with the homeless and those suffering from addiction in the community.I specialise in working with a wide range of problems, including: depression, generalised anxiety disorder, social anxiety, panic attacks, stress, low self-esteem, substance related and behavioural addiction issues, psychosis, gender identity, sexuality, personality disorders, eating disorders, health problems, co-dependency, family and relationship issues, PTSD and other trauma-related problems.I have excellent therapeutic skills and work using an integrative approach; combining elements of Existential, Psychodynamic, Person-Centered, CBT, and Mindfulness therapies to best suit the clients' needs. I also work reflectively and flexibly, proactively updating the style of my approach to address the changing concerns that clients may have.
