She works with a broad range of common presenting difficulties including depression, anxiety & panic, low self esteem, anger, relationship difficulties, eating disorders, substance misuse, issues around sex and sexuality and work related issues. She also works with clients with more complex needs including complex trauma and personality disorder.

Jacqui has a particular interest in working with clients with Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder (EUPD) . Her expertise in this area has been gained through more than 17 years experience in both community and in-patient settings. During this time she has worked with EUPD clients both individually and as a group facilitator for programmes which have included skills in mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance and interpersonal effectiveness. She has also provided training to staff in secure settings in relation to working with clients who self-harm.

Jacqui works in an empathic and non-judgemental way, aiming to empower her clients to find their own way of working through difficulties and discomfort and to facilitate them in the process of finding both acceptance and change within their lives.
