Jennifer Manners, MBACP Counsellor
My name is Jenni, I'm a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and registered member of the BACP, based in Keswick, Lake District. I naturally lean to a person-centred and relational approach with clients, as an integrative counsellor I incorporate Transactional Analysis, CBT and solution-focused therapy to suit each clients needs and response.
I complete my training at the Northern Guild of Counselling & Psychotherapy, a leading training centre in the North East. I have also completed a certificate in Online & Telephone Counselling accredited by the National Counselling Society (NSC) and Association for Counselling & Therapy Online (ACTO) and continue to attend workshops and CPD courses.
I work as a volunteer counsellor within a carers support charity, I have a keen interest in medical trauma and those who it effects directly and indirectly.
I've worked with a range of presenting issues and continue to expand my practice helping people identify and achieve their personal goals by coping with the issues that are causing them distress, anxiety, and stress.
I take great pride in the progress and success of my clients, and look forward to helping you.
INTEGRATIVE THOUGHT-BASED APPROACH
I use a humanistic integrative approach to counselling that can help you overcome personal challenges, and allow you to achieve your individual goals. I adapt my approach to cater to each of my client’s personal needs in order to unlock their full potential.
Drawing on theory and interventions from Person Centered counselling, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt and CBT to name a few, I work to each clients needs without a blanket approach to my work.
How it Works
Starting with an initial consultation which last 15 minutes, this is your chance to share what you need help with, ask any questions and discuss how to move forward. Either my phone or video call. You can then take time to decide if you want to procede and get in touch at a later date and book a counselling session.
To book a confidential assessment email on or get in touch via the contact button below.
During this time, while the Covid-19 pandemic continues to effect our safety meeting face to face in an enclosed space I offer both online or telephone counselling as an alternative.
I hope to return to face to face work at some point in the future.
Online video -based counselling sessions via Vsee platform, working in a quiet and confidential space to explore your reasons for seeking counselling. Typically clients have between 6-12 sessions, or some long term therapy over months/years to explore, grow and reach their personal goals.
Telephone therapy offers appointments with simple access, flexibility, and privacy. Some individuals find it easier to open up about problems without being face to face with a therapist.
Initial 15 minute Consultation - Free
During the initial 15 minute consultation we will cover a brief history and ask you to share your reasons for seeking counselling. Give you a short introduction to counselling and discuss any thoughts or expectations you may have.

Each counselling session, both online video or telephone, are 50 minutes long. Counselling sessions are typically weekly or fortnightly, which is discussed and agreed upon during our initial meeting.
