About Me

Hi! I’m Jessy, a qualified BACP person-centred counsellor, supporting new mums with postnatal emotional and mental issues. I have also worked with bereavement charities and wellbeing centres.

I have had depression since I was a teenager and have developed and shared strategies to cope and learn to live with it. 

I am driven to help others in need. Much like if you see someone stumble and fall, you go to help them, I feel like I do that for people who have stumbled emotionally.

It breaks my heart to see others with facades, masks, so thick and intricate that even they have forgotten their true selves. They have forgotten how to bounce back from bad things or people or they simply don’t know how to heal from traumas they have experienced. They have forgotten themselves.

The masks they wear cover so much pain, so many wounds, so much emptiness and loneliness.
My vision is for others to be their true selves and be surrounded by supportive, compassionate people who do not put conditions on each other to be a certain way. I see so much beauty in others when they let go of their masks and start to generate their own light to get rid of the darkness within.

I know I am a supporter, healer, helper. I know my role in life is to help others and my message to the world is that there is hope; they can find their own answers within to the questions they ask and they have the strength within them to achieve it.
