Jackie Manton

I am a qualified counsellor who combines Cognitive Behaviour therapy, Transactional Analysis and Person Centred therapy when working with clients.

I also specialise in combining mind, body and spirit therapies into counselling sessions.

I have over 15 years of experience in different types of healing and utilise many of them in my practices.

Types of healing include reiki, rahanni, shamanism: soul retrieval, chakra balancing, contract breaking and journeying.

My main focus is on the client and use my skills to empower them on their own healing journey.

I have over 20 years experience in education and have worked in many different fields e.g. National probation service.

I support and encourage clients on their journey of self-discovery and will provide a safe environment where there is no judgement.

Taking the step to seek help and support can be daunting and scary.

I will provide you a warm welcome and safe environment to support you in your journey of self discovery.

I provide a professional and confidential counselling service in Westcliff-on-sea and Southend-on-sea.

I work in an integrative way using cognitive behaviour therapy, transactional analysis, mindfulness and person-centred approaches with creative techniques.

As your counsellor I will work with you, tailoring how I work to suit your needs. I believe that we are all individuals with unique experiences and therefore I do not use a ‘one size fits all’ approach.

As your counsellor I will not tell you what to do, judge or criticise you. I will accept you unconditionally, without judgement and support you to work through your difficulties, empowering you to take control of your life.

Training, qualifications and experience:

I have been working within a special educational needs school for just over 10 years, working with teenagers and young adults with varying social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.

I volunteered for affordable therapy and therapy for life for 18 months during my training, during which time I worked with adults.
