‘I believe we are all unique and therefore adopt a personalized,

collaborative approach to therapy. In our work together,

I aim to ensure a warm, compassionate and client focused approach to

enable you to understand your individual experiences.

Using some specific therapeutic tools and techniques and/or often

exploring past experiences can promote significant change. This may

support you to manage and make life-long meaningful changes independently

which you can continue to adopt long after our work together is ended.’

Jacqueline Sawkins


Within her extensive clinical roles and teaching, Jacqueline has demonstrated the importance of adopting a holistic approach, using evidence-based psychological therapies of both integrative and CBT modalities as well as incorporating, where necessary, Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR is mainly used to help with traumatic feelings that have come about due to traumatic experiences. These include car crashes/road accidents, physical violation/assault, early childhood trauma or the loss of a loved one to name a few. It is a popular therapy for post-traumatic stress disorder, but it is increasingly being used for other issues too.


Jacqueline has a specialist interest complex trauma and specifically OCD. She also has a dedicated personal curiosity in moving towards equine assisted psychotherapy and expanding her knowledge and training towards incorporating EMDR for animals. She enjoys her retired rescue racehorse and therapy dog connecting with nature and long walks.

Our Clients Say....

Jacqueline was a fantastic help to me as my therapist. She helped me face my fears and uncover some deep trauma that had been underlying for many years. I had hidden away so much. She was very patient and listed intently. The EMDR therapy has completely changed things for me. I am now able to go about my day without the constant distress of trauma.
