Making your first trip to the Philippe Jacquet Bermondsey practice can be a bit intimidating to clients, particularly if they have never been to see a mental health professional before. However, when attending this amazing building on Spa Road you immediately feel comfortable and relaxed, and there are some simple ways to prepare for your first visit
A good place to start is at www.phillipejacquet.co.uk. The website provides information on the various areas of specialization offered through the practice. However, before delving deeper into services, finding out about the building itself will help you immediately feel at ease.
The Bermondsey practice is located in the Tibetan Buddhist Meditation Centre for World Peace & Health. This is a unique location that is designed around peace and tranquillity, and it is one of the most beautiful places within this area of the city. Once at the building on Spa Road you will be able to visit different areas and simply absorb the wonderful atmosphere of the centre.
There is a tea room, shrine rooms, treatment rooms and a small Buddhist library. This building is actually the Old Bermondsey Library, and is perfectly suited to meditation, focus, and simply just enjoying the tranquil environment that provides an optimal element for counselling, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy and business and executive coaching services.
The office hours for the Bermondsey practice of Philippe Jacquet & Associates, as well as maps and contact information can be found on their website.
Weekly hours of operation, including 08.00 to 21.00, with weekend hours of 10.00 to 18.00. Clients requiring sessions outside of these hours can speak directly to their psychotherapist, coach, or counsellor to arrange alternative hours. It is also possible to consider Skype sessions, which are a wonderful option for clients that have difficulty in traveling outside of their home or in taking time from work to attend sessions.
Confidentiality and Patient Care
Confidentiality and privacy for clients is a key component at Philippe Jacquet & Associates. All of the therapists and counsellors working at the Bermondsey practice are voluntarily credentialed through the BAAT (British Association of Art Therapists), HPC (Health Professionals Council) and the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy), providing the highest in ethical standards for client care.
Each and every individual client, including children, adolescents and adults, is treated as a unique individual. Each treatment plan is holistic and bespoke, which means each is designed specifically to meet the needs of the clients. With this level of care patients are comfortable, have the support and services that are best suited to their needs, and also have professionals working with them that see them as a whole person, not a collection of symptoms.
The blog at www.phillipejacquet.co.uk provides new clients, and existing clients, with insight into specific mental health issues and treatment options offered at the Bermondsey practice as well as the other offices of Philippe Jacquet & Associates.
To summarise, the practice offers business coaching, hypnotherapy, psychotherapy and counselling. Each service offer through the practice will include techniques from a wide range of the most effective and studied treatment methods.
Counselling is used for shorter to moderate length treatments to deal with a wide range of issues. These can include addictions, relationship challenges, behavioural issues and even issues such as stress and self-esteem. Psychotherapy is more long term in nature and focuses on the deeper underlying emotional issues that are impacting life.
Business coaching or executive coaching is not therapy, but rather a way for a professional to confidentially work with skilled professional to develop or enhance skills, behaviours and opportunities. Many very successful professionals use business coaching as a long term opportunity for unique personal growth and development.
Hypnotherapy may be used on its own or in combination with other therapeutic approaches. It is highly effective in changing behaviours, including phobias and fears as well as ineffective coping strategies.
