About Step-By-Step Counselling & Therapies
Welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit my profile …
Introduction: I’m Jen Brown – Step-By-Step Counselling & Therapies, a professional Person-Centred and Integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist, Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist, EMDR Therapist and Holistic Therapist, holding a Level 5 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, Diploma in Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapy, Diploma in NLP and qualifications in CBT, EMDR Therapy, Mindfulness and Holistic Therapies.
I have been a therapist in Bridgnorth, since 2009 and have built a thriving private practice, with clients often contacting me on recommendation of my services. I have extensive experience working with adults, adolescents, couples and families, am employed part-time as a School Counsellor and offer private counselling, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy and holistic therapies from my confidential therapy room in Bridgnorth, Shropshire.
I offer 60 minute, 90 minutes and 2 hour sessions, bespoke to your individual requirements and work flexible hours, with both daytime, evening and weekend appointments. I work closely with local GP Practices, receiving regular referrals, and accommodate private healthcare referrals. I also offer bespoke corporate packages to organisations and businesses and provide Supervision to other Counsellors and therapy to training student Counsellors.
I also work with Perry & Phillips Funeral Directors, to offer a free bereavement counselling service. Weekly ‘supportive chats’ and monthly group bereavement counselling sessions can be of great support at such a difficult time – please contact Perry & Phillips for further information.
Therapies available: Person-Centred/Integrative Counselling/Psychotherapy/CBT, provides a safe space for you to be understood, respected, and listened to empathically without judgement. Through exploring your issues and feelings, you can begin to better understand yourself and identify areas to change and strengthen. Step by step, you will work through those areas, be given strategies, methods to use and explore different approaches, to help you make lasting changes and improve your overall well-being. A range of theories and modalities such as; person-centred/humanistic therapy, CBT, mindfulness, solution-focused therapy, transactional analysis, psychodynamic therapy, meditation/relaxation techniques, may be used to provide the right therapy for you. EMDR Therapy and Hypnotherapy can be incorporated in your therapy programmes, if considered beneficial.
Hypnotherapy is an effective form of therapy used to treat conditions, issues or change unhelpful habits. It harnesses the power of suggestion to encourage positive change, whilst the client is in an ‘altered state of awareness and relaxation’. This relaxed state occurs naturally; the state between consciousness and sleep, when immersed in music, reading a book, focused or in deep concentration. Deep relaxation techniques are used to facilitate this tranquil state, allowing the subconscious mind to receive positive suggestions in order to communicate with the conscious mind and bring about the change clients are seeking. Clients are always in control, working with images, events and memories which are meaningful, safe and appropriate. An Eriksonian approach is used with evidence-based techniques. This ensures a professional, safe and ethically robust environment for effective therapy with a wide range of issues and challenges, promoting long-lasting change.
Bereavement Counselling – this respectful service is provided for individuals and familes from my private therapy space and online via Zoom, FaceTime, Whatsapp Video Call, Skype and telephone.
EMDR Therapy – is an interactive therapeutic process that is widely used in the field of psychological trauma and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). It can be an effective therapy for reprocessing past and recent trauma, phobias, anxiety, panic attacks, performance anxiety, depression, disturbing life experiences, bereavement and many mental health issues.
Holistic Therapies – reiki and reiki crystal healing are complimentary/holistic, energy-based healing therapies which support and encourages natural self-healing abilities; whilst promoting a feeling of deep relaxation, harmony and well-being. These relaxing treatments can be combined with counselling/psychotherapy for a truly holistic approach to improve your well-being. Please see my website www.reiki-roots.co.uk for further information.

Confidentiality: Confidentiality is paramount. I treat all information disclosed to me by you as confidential. However, if I believe that you are in danger of harming yourself or others, or that a child is at risk, I reserve the right to inform outside agencies – I would, wherever possible, discuss this with you first.

So could you benefit from counselling/psychotherapy/CBT? Realising you may need some extra support can be difficult to accept, but this is the first step in the right direction.
Have you experienced?
- A loss, such as bereavement, loss of a relationship or friendship
- A trauma
- Health issues
- Work issues
- Bullying or friendship issues
- Low self-esteem or low self-confidence
- Addiction problems
- Anger Issues
- Obsessive thoughts
So what’s involved? Your initial session will form our introduction, contract and assessment, where both parties will decide whether this form of therapy is right for you. During this initial session, you will of course have opportunity to explore presenting issues and be given opportunity to reflect on areas to focus and be given suggestions on a way forward for you.
Person-centred/integrative therapy/CBT offers a safe environment where you can explore yourself and life’s issues without fear of rejection or judgement. In time, you will begin to understand yourself, your strengths and weaknesses and identify how you can move forward and make changes to enhance your life and individual experience. Adapting your coping strategies, learning new skills, understanding what is in your control and how to let go of what is not working for you can simply transform the way you look at and handle situations – which can ultimately change your life.
So could you benefit from hypnotherapy? Hypnotherapy can be extremely effective for numerous issues, such as phobias, weight loss, quitting smoking, IBS, insomnia plus much more. Your initial session will form our introduction, contract and assessment, followed by hypnotherapy and a personalised treatment plan, taking up to 90 minutes. At the end of this session you will have a good understanding of how hypnotherapy works for you and we will discuss the plan forward for any future sessions. Issues are treated on an individual bespoke basis, with no pre-determined number of sessions, however my ‘hypnotherapy programmes’ are a set number of sessions.
Further Hypnotherapy sessions are generally up to 90 minutes long, tailored to your specific requirements and the goals you wish to achieve. As an experienced Counsellor and Psychotherapist, you can be assured of a professional and ethical hypnotherapy service, where effective therapy takes place.

Intuitively chosen crystals can be used in reiki crystal healing, to further complement the healing process. These deeply relaxing therapeutic treatments can also be blended with conventional therapies, such as counselling and psychotherapy, if considered beneficial.
