Hi there and welcome to Jennifer Welton Counselling & Psychotherapy based in Celbridge, Co Kildare, Dublin & surrounding areas.
I hope that you can take the time to appreciate your decision to seek counselling. It is a brave move & one which I hope you find will pay off for years to come. It is important that you make sure to get the right counsellor for you.
With this in mind let me tell you a little about myself. I was awarded a diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy by PCI College followed by a Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Counselling & Psychotherapy validated by Middlesex University. I am a registered & accredited member of the Irish Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (IACP) & registered with the British Association of Counselling Practioners.
I have been in private practice since 2014. I work with clients suffering depression & anxiety, relationship & sexual issues & problems with alcohol abuse. I also have experience working with suicidal clients & those with issues around self harm and suicide ideation within private practice & previously as a therapist for Pieta House in Dublin.
So how do I work? Depending on the client & the presenting issue I usually take an integrative approach. My training & theoretical background is humanistic and integrative psychotherapy incorporating Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) & Gestalt approaches to my work. The long & short of it is that I will tailor my approach to best suit your needs.
Combining my experience & expertise I look forward to working together to help you change or manage your life for the better.
Female client (Self Esteem) 2012
"I was afraid to start counselling. I was initially afraid of being judged. Jennifer made me feel accepted and through her guidance I have learnt that I count as much as anyone else”.
Male client (Depression), 2013
"I want to thank Jennifer for her patience and listening ear. I had been to therapy before and often felt rushed to get better. Jennifer listened and offered guidance to get me through the dark times. I now trust in my own abilities to cope".
Female client (Self harm) 2013
"I was holding this secret for so long. I felt really vulnerable at the thoughts of counselling. The counselling was actually a great outlet. I have now a better understanding of my own emotions and ability to cope in a healthier way”.
Female client (Self Esteem) 2014
"Thanks for everything you have done for me. I really enjoyed our sessions. You’ve worked wonders with my confidence and I feel it will be a big benefit for me going forward”.
Male client (Sexual abuse) 2015
"I would like to thank you for listening without judgement. I have learnt to be kinder to myself and honour what I’ve gone through. Thank you for opening up a new life path for me".
