About me ~ Counselling

My name is Jackie Ralph and I am a fully qualified counsellor, Reiki and EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) Therapist in the Essex area.  I am also working with the Metamorphic Technique, and incorporating it along with my counselling skills in my practice.   I will be able to offer Indian Head massage in February 2016.  My practice is in a beautiful urban village called Cold Norton, Essex.   It is not far from and situated in between South Woodham Ferrers and Maldon, Essex.  I have personally experienced infertility, premature menopause, miscarriage, divorce and adoption.  I have worked with people with drug and alcohol addiction and  people with learning and physical difficulties.  I have been a personal assistant for the last six years to vulnerable adults with learning difficulties.  I have recently been working in a secondary school as a Learning Support Assistant and I am an adoptive mother to my two wonderful children.

I have a wealth of knowledge and experience regarding this journey, such as attachment issues, letter box contact and face to face contact.  I am able to provide a professional approach and confidentiality, at all times providing a safe and non-judgmental haven where a person can explore their feelings, issues and difficulties.

I decided to become a counsellor because I naturally find it very rewarding to help people make positive changes in their lives.  My decision to offer counselling to others was also influenced by my children and the fact that I used to have counselling myself.  I found that it really made a difference to me, where I was able to off load any unwanted baggage of emotions that was not necessarily needed anymore.  It wasn’t just having counselling that was helpful but also having a good, strong therapeutic relationship with my counsellor that facilitated the process of change for me.  

As a trained counsellor, with no preconceived ideas about your world I hope that by seeing me I will be able to help you make positive changes in your life.  The time that you have with me is for you and all about you, sometimes just having that time to yourself can make the world of difference.  By making positive changes will lead you to live a more fulfilling and healthy experience.  I have found that combining the three therapies has produced pleasing and outstanding results for my clients.
