"My philosophy is that limitations and restrictions limit you. There should be no limitations or restrictions in your life. If you have a limitation or restriction, set by yourself or by others, you are not set free to live your life."

Jacquelyn's Work with Business and Education

The Youth Engagement Services Team in Bexley and BUPA Wellness Employee Assistance Services have contracted with Jacquelyn for more than ten years. This is a credit to Jacquelyn's work - a counsellor must receive consistently positive feedback and reviews to continue working with these organisations.

Jacquelyn has also worked with young people within the Skills for Growth organisation, helping young adults to attain qualifications offering counselling, coaching, coping strategies and workshops for Self-esteem and Confidence Building, Drug Awareness, Alcohol Awareness and Sexual Health Awareness. Jacquelyn helps young people through their personal issues and barriers they may have towards learning, helping them to qualify or move on to further training, grasping their independence.

When the civilian department of the Metropolitan Police Service were looking to introduce a pilot scheme for in-house counselling, Jacquelyn created and implemented this for them, teaching counselling skills as well as personal development. These skills were used to train individuals to become a confidential ear within the force to support staff with grievances and other issues. This scheme is still in place today.

Jacquelyn has taught and facilitates with the Counselling and Personal Development Department at Orpington College for students up to and including Diploma level. She also works with many students at other educational institutions that are going through the Diploma course for counselling and personal development. Jacquelyn supervises and aids their progression.
