A little bit about me

A little bit about me
My name is Jacqueline Hykiel, MSc, MBACP.  
I have a Master’s Degree in General Psychology from Roehampton University, a Postgraduate Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, a Diploma in Mindfulness and am a registered member of the BACP as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist.

I have a broad experience of working with adults and young people with a wide range of mental health conditions such as: anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD, addiction, self-harm, eating disorders, stress, work-related issues, redundancy, spirituality, cultural issues or health-related issues. I have a deeper knowledge and experience of working with people suffering from OCD.

My private training style is "humanistic and existential" therapy. I work with an integrative approach, drawing skills from other modalities which always depend on my client as to what will suit them the best. I work in a way where, ultimately, I believe "you know what is right for you".

I work with clients to either help them find that part of themselves, or to assist in bringing back that part of themselves that they have disconnected with and is maybe causing problems in day to day life, and has stopped them from knowing "what is right for them".

I currently work with the top volleyball club in the UK as their Team Counsellor. I also work in a London secondary school as the Student Counsellor and previously have worked in a primary school in the same role. In addition, I have a private practice where I work with clients and their mental health issues.

Bookings and Appointments

Bookings and Appointments
Often the hardest thing to do is to know how to change your situation.

I have an online booking system for online sessions only, that can be accessed via the link below.

Please contact me before booking an appointment to confirm my availability (due to an ongoing IT issue).

For face to face sessions please contact me via the form below, send a SMS message or give me a call. We can then talk through some options and decide if you would like to meet for an initial consultation.

The initial consultation, lasting 30 minutes, will be free of charge. We will talk through the issues on your mind and if we both agree to proceed, will decide when to meet next.

Any further appointments will be charged at a rate of £55 and will last fifty minutes.
