Jessica is the founder of Relationship Matters, a qualified psychotherapist and mediator and specializes in enabling couples, families and teams to bridge the relationship gap when communication has broken down.
Jessica holds an MSc in Therapeutic Counselling from the University of Greenwich, London, England, and is an Associate Mediator with the Singapore Mediation Centre. She is an Emergenetics Associate and has run workshops with couples and corporate teams, as well as individual and couple debriefings.
Jessica practices integrative therapy, drawing on her training in humanistic, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural approaches, as well as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). She believes that by creating a safe, open and trusting space it is possible to explore the impact of deeply held beliefs, understand unconscious and potentially destructive drives and connect with ourselves and other people in a more fulfilling way. She uses her training as a therapist to gain insight and enhance the relationships she builds when offering mediation and couple and team building workshops.
Jessica has furthered her professional training by completing Gottman Method Couples Therapy Parts 1 & 2, and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and practices Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), having trained with the EMDR Institute, USA. She is a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), a member of the EMDR Institute and Singapore Mediation Centre (SMC).
Jessica is British and moved to Singapore in 2009 and has worked extensively with couples and adult individuals during her career. She has also worked with adolescents in a school setting offering a nurturing and supportive counselling relationship at difficult times and was a volunteer counsellor and staff member on a project for at risk young people in the UK.
She is passionate about helping people uncover the potential in themselves and their relationships and using this awareness to engage, connect and move forward successfully.
