Jenny practises from the York Human Givens Wellbeing Centre which she helped to set up in 2010 and which she runs with Gail Rhodes. She has been working from the Human Givens approach since 2008. She is also a trained bereavement counsellor and has worked in a voluntary bereavement support team for several years in a hospice. Prior to that she was a secondary school English teacher and then an editor/writer for many years in Zimbabwe where she grew up.
Over the years, Jenny has worked with a wide variety of clients with many differing challenges, including acute and ongoing stress, anxiety and depression, trauma, addiction, eating disorders and relationship issues. She also particularly enjoys working with clients who simply want to manage their lives better and are looking for new strategies to do this as quickly and effectively as possible. The creative and practical ideas in the Human Givens Approach provide the ideal framework for this. Jenny has the firm belief that emotional wellbeing comes through discovering and using your own strengths, managing your responses through learning to keep calm and think clearly, and taking back control so that you can do the things that you need to as well as the things that you love.
Jenny is an accredited supervisor with the Human Givens Institute and provides supervision for Human Givens trainees working towards their Part 3, qualified therapists and other health professionals.
Although she works primarily from the York Human Givens Wellbeing Centre where there is a team of five therapists, she is also able to offer home visits under special circumstances.
