Josephine Jacobs

I am a qualified counsellor and Psychotherapist in Farnborough, Lightwater and online. I work with young people (16+), adults and couples. I help people who are going through changes in their life or wish to make a change in their life. I can support you through your grief, loss, career choices, relationship issues, communication, work related problems, stress, depression, anxiety or trauma.

I’m currently undergoing training in Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP), an accelerated form of dynamic psychotherapy. This active approach focuses on processing emotional blockages and changing maladaptive response patterns which are responsible for symptoms such as anxiety, depression and relationship difficulties.

As an emotion-focused, experiential therapy ISTDP aims to get to the root of your difficulties in as short a time-frame as possible to enable you to overcome symptoms and reach your full potential. If you would like to find out more about this type of therapy please contact me or visit my website.

Life can be a struggle at times and having someone who helps you make sense of your overwhelming feelings can be soothing. Someone who takes time to listen and tries to understand what life is like for you can be calming and help you find your own direction. I have been trained by Relate as a Relationship Counsellor and by Cruse as a Bereavement specialist.

Would you like to talk about what goes on in your life and in your head? Want to be sure that you will not be judged and that you feel safe whilst exploring your thoughts, feelings and behaviours? Maybe you are wondering which event or events in your life have most affected how you feel. There could be relationships, past, present, and future which play on your mind. Do you want healthier relationships? Do you wonder if the way you feel gets in the way of you getting what you want out of life or living the life you want? You may have feelings you do not understand or believe you have lost yourself and no longer know how you feel.
