Jenna Gleeson – Therapeutic Mindset Coach/Adolescent Psychotherapist

I am a qualified trauma-informed counsellor and psychotherapist,  offering private counselling and psychotherapy in Milton Keynes as well as online. I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, and adhere to the BACP ethical framework. I work with adolescents and young people aged 12-25 for traditional counselling and psychotherapy, with my expertise in working with young people in care. I create a warm, non-judgemental space in which to explore whatever has brought you to therapy.

My clinical background is Psychodynamic Therapy, underpinned by Developmental, Relational, and Trauma-Informed approaches, which takes into consideration how your early life and experiences may be influencing you presently. As an integrative therapist, I use a range of different therapeutic approaches to adapt to your unique needs as a client. My style is informed both by a psychodynamic approach and evidence-based models. I offer short-term therapy for a specific problem or life-event; or a longer-term, open-ended journey towards deepening your understanding and acceptance of yourself and others. With adolescents, the work can also be explored through play and using the arts.

I am also a Therapeutic Life Coach, which means I can help you to overcome your challenges, achieve your goals and make positive changes in a structured, dynamic and practical way, all with the reassurance of knowing that you are working with a registered therapeutic clinician. Together we will think about how your life experience has influenced the present, enabling you to gain self-knowledge, insight and perspective to support you in moving forward. This is done using a blend of counselling, CBT & mindfulness. Therapeutic coaching can help you to heal from trauma, anxiety, burn-out, imposter syndrome & lack of self-worth so that you can move from surviving to thriving and start to feel your most confident, connected, energetic self.
