Jodie Mainstone - Psychotherapist/Counsellor & Supervisor
Dip Couns, MBACP (Accred), AP (Accred), NCAC, BACP Registered Psychotherapist/Counsellor & EMDR Europe Accredited Therapist
I started my work as a Psychotherapist in 2005 and I qualified in 2007. I am currently an Eating Disorders consultant for a treatment centre in South Kensington in London where I facilitate group therapy and work with their referrals for EMDR. I work in private practice in Hampstead NW3 on Mondays, Online on Wednesdays and in South Kensington SW7 on Thursdays.
I have worked as a therapist both in the UK and in South Africa at various well known treatment facilities and have almost two decades of experience working with various client groups including, eating disorders, trauma, anxiety, depression, mood disorders, addictions, low self-worth, grief and clients with family and relationship issues or attachment trauma. However, I have extensive experience of working with eating disorders and trauma and I am considered an expert within this field. I am also trained and work with many Neurodivergent clients such as Autistic individuals and those with ADHD.
I use an integrative approach which means I use various therapeutic modalities in order best meet the needs of my clients. I fit therapeutic approaches to clients and not clients to therapeutic approaches. This is because I believe everyone is unique. Some of the approaches I use are person centered therapy, CBT, DBT, EMDR, Systemic and Psychodynamic. My main purpose as a therapist is to provide a safe and supportive environment for clients to explore and process their difficulties and learn new tools.
I became a therapist after seeking help for some of my own life difficulties. I believe that my personal experiences as well as professional experiences have shaped me into the therapist that I have become. I am very passionate about what I do and feel truly grateful to have been able to play a part in other people’s journeys.
