Counselling and Psychotherapy in Dorking


Are you wondering if counselling is a worthwhile investment? Do you ask yourself if counselling will help you, and how long will you need to come for? Research has shown that prospects are good - 80% of people feel better after therapy (1) and the evidence shows that 65% of people improve after just 7 sessions (2). 

Welcome to Jackie Donelan Counselling. Searching for a counsellor is the first brave step towards a happier and more fulfilling life.

Most people experience difficulties in their lives, and sometimes feel that they need some extra support.

I offer a FREE 30 MINUTE INITIAL CONSULTATION, as I understand that counselling can feel daunting and you may be unsure if it is the right course of action for you. In this 30 minute session we will talk about your reasons for seeking counselling and I will give you information about how I work, so that you can decide if counselling is right for you and if you would like to continue. 

Appointments are available daytime and evenings.

I operate a private practice in Dorking offering one to one counselling and psychotherapy, either face to face at my Dorking practice or via SKYPE. I provide a safe, confidential environment where clients will experience a warm and non judgemental approach. My practice is located just outside Dorking town where there is ample free parking.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and am on their Accredited Register.
   

I work from an Integrative base, which means that I use a range of different styles. These include:
 
  • Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Humanistic Counselling

Each client is unique. As a practitioner, I am able to offer you a flexible approach, where together we can discover what works best for you, and build a relationship, within which we can explore your difficulties together.

I offer short and long term, face to face counselling for younger and older adults in Dorking, and the surrounding areas.

I am experienced in helping clients who have encountered difficulties with many different issues, such as:
 
  • Stress
  • Panic Attacks
  • Anxiety
  • Redundancy
  • Relationship Issues
  • Bullying
  • Career Counselling
  • Low Self Confidence
  • Work Related Issues
  • Depression
  • And many more.......
