4 Years Post-Registration Experience

Hello. I am Jenny Charters. I'm an accredited and registered counsellor - I support individuals and couples with their emotional health. I have private and voluntary sector experience as a counsellor. My interest includes relationship problems, and the particular challenges experienced by women.

What to Expect

An initial assessment meeting helps you to see if you are comfortable with me, share what concerns you, ask questions, understand confidentiality, and decide if therapy could benefit you. Please use a contact option on the right to book an introductory assessment meeting in Glasgow.

Counselling

Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You decide what issue concerning your early years or adult life you explore. An objective of counselling is to enable you to speak about a difficulty and discover a way forward which is right for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.

Thoughts on Mental Health

People have an amazing ability to find ways to survive, even in the most difficult circumstances. The fact that you are here, reading this, means that you have survived whatever it is that you have had to live through. However, survival techniques, especially ones developed as children, can become habitual ways of being. Although your life situation has changed, you just can't switch off from the way of being that got you through the difficult times. Young people subjected to abuse or trauma that they find unbearable to experience often survive by developing the ability to dissociate from their feelings. That helps, because whatever is happening to them seems as though it is happening to someone else. If you did this as a young person, you may have found that, now the situation is in the past, you can't just switch your feelings back on, or if you do get feelings back, you can't control them. You may self harm either because you feel deadened and would rather feel something than feel nothing, or you may begin to be aware of your feelings, which you can't bear, but don't have the means to soothe yourself. In that case, self harm can be a way of coping when the feelings are too bad to bear.

Sometimes words can hurt more than actions. To practise combating stigma, try the "I, you, he/she" challenge. Think of a comment about another person. Let's take obesity, a common issue. Which words describing obesity might you use if you were talking about yourself or a friend, who you don't want to hurt ("I am..." or "you are...")? Which words might you use speaking about someone else, who you're not close to ("he/she is...")? Then imagine how it might feel to be described that way. How prized and valued would you feel? Words are powerful, for good or bad.
