My name is Jackie Bernasconi-Rudd and I'm a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist. If you would like to know much more about me and my professional background than space permits here, please check out my website at: http://www.woldscounselling.co.uk.
If after looking at my website you decide to refer yourself to me for psychotherapy or counselling, I want you to know that in your therapeutic relationship with me you will encounter non-judgemental acceptance, unconditional positive regard, emotional warmth, empathic understanding, uncompromising respect, resilience and where appropriate, a measure of my good sense of humour. You will find me genuine, open and honest and with your agreement I will share with you whatever feelings are stirred in me as you and I work together.
In the process of therapy, I encourage self-awareness, personal responsibility, self-determination, autonomy and spontaneity. I also facilitate the recovery of a vital capacity, which is the ability to form close and loving relationships with significant others.
I resonate with a key finding of psychotherapy research, which is that immaterial of the theoretical approaches that psychotherapists use, the most important factor that determines a successful outcome is the therapeutic relationship itself; this being the primary vehicle for revealing how historical experiences can often underlie our here-and-now problems.
I look forward to meeting you!
