Therapy in Sheffield – Jen Ayling

About Therapy in Sheffield – Jen Ayling
I am a full clinical member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), accredited as a Gestalt Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I have expertise in working with trauma and a socially-engaged, holistic approach.
As a therapist, I am passionately interested in how health and well-being is influenced by our environment and the social relationships in our lives. Whatever brings you to therapy, I aim to be sensitive to this wider context: the physical, cultural and social landscape which forms the backdrop of our journey together.
In addition to seeing private clients, I work as a counsellor at Sheffield Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre (SRASAC), supporting women and men who have experienced trauma and abuse. I previously worked as a volunteer trauma counsellor at Saffron Sheffield, and completed a clinical placement at the Lincoln Trauma Centre. As such, I have expertise in supporting people who live with the lasting effects of traumatic events, including PTSD and complex trauma – as well as working with a wide range of other issues.
I’m also a qualified mental health trainer/educator and workshop facilitator. Since 2007 I have designed and delivered workshops for a range of charities including Mind, Rethink, NIACE and the NHS.
How Can I help?
Whilst I work with clients on a wide range of issues I have a particular interest and expertise in supporting people with:
- Depression, anxiety and other mental health difficulties.
- Relationship problems.
- Work Stress.
- Sexual, physical and emotional abuse.
- Sleep difficulties & chronic insomnia.
- Adjusting to life transitions or major changes – e.g. divorce, bereavement, chronic illness.
- Self-harm and compulsive behaviour.
- Dissociative experiences.
- Inner critical voices.
- Confusion over identity and sense of self.
- Experiences of aloneness, loneliness and solitude.
- Voice hearing, visions and similar sensory experiences.

Therapy costs £50 per session for face-to-face, phone and online appointments. Sessions for one hour.
Concession rates are available for full-time students, trainee counsellors/therapists and those experiencing financial hardship. I review my prices annually.
My working days are Mondays and Tuesdays.
I am based in the Nether Edge (S7) area of Sheffield, in a dedicated therapeutic space which is comfortable, spacious and private. I also offer online/phone therapy to people outside of Sheffield or who prefer those formats.
I see most clients on an ongoing, weekly basis and am available for both short and long-term therapy.
I work exclusively with adults on a 1-1 basis, and currently do not offer psychotherapy for children/teenagers, couples or families.
I am fully insured, DBS cleared, and my UKCP Membership No. is 2011165394.
