Jenny Nicholson


Jenny offers Counselling, Regression and Integration Therapy, Humanistic Psychology, Co-Counselling, The Work That Reconnects.

I have over 20 years of experience as a facilitator of personal and professional development, working mainly in voluntary and public sector organisations and in adult education.

For the past ten years I have focused on counsellor training at a range of different levels, from short introductory courses to further education and university programmes awarding professional qualifications. I have been a co-counsellor for 30 years.

I was a participant on the IDHP Diploma course, Facilitator Styles, from 1989-91, and co-facilitated the Diploma (in Advanced Facilitation, Coaching and Change Management) with Mike Eales in 2002-04.

I have done a professional training in regression and integration therapy and JinShinDo Bodymind Acupressure. My practice of these body therapies has been much enhanced by my experience as a community dance leader and my lifelong love of movement and dance.

My energy is now focused on both facilitating and taking part in workshops in The Work That Reconnects. Developed by Joanna Macy, this work is about renewing our connection with the natural world, exploring our feelings about what is happening to the planet, and through this process becoming more able to be active in working towards a sustainable future.

I am in a member group of the Independent Practitioners Network which supports me with nourishment and stimulation.

Roy Turner


Roy offers offers massage for relaxation and healing.

My aim is to co-create each massage by tuning in to the client’s particular physical, emotional and energetic needs at the time, maintaining good communication, clear boundaries and drawing on my experience in a variety of bodywork modalities.  Following my experience in the pressures of corporate life, it is particularly fulfilling for me to help a stressed and tense client to relax, and this is reflected in the name of my practice (‘Stop the world and relax’).

My career began with a degree in Experimental Psychology and six years academic research in that area, followed by many years in the IT industry focusing on medical and healthcare applications, retiring early to focus on massage therapy. I have been interested in massage since the 1980’s, and have been collecting professional qualifications (in Swedish Massage, Indian Head Massage, Reflexology, Hawaiian Lomilomi massage and Holistic Pulsing, amongst others, also Anatomy and Physiology) over several decades. I am also a member of the Complementary Therapy Association (CThA) and insured through Holistic Insurance Services.

My own personal development is important to me and informs my practice. I have been an active CCI Co-Counsellor since 2003, and have taught this form of peer counselling as an accredited teacher, also taking a PTLLS (adult learning) qualification to allow teaching it in colleges. I frequently participate in personal development workshops, from weekend to year-long duration, as well as taking further massage trainings to extend my experience and for CPD.

My membership of the IPN Oxford group gives me a reflective and knowledgeable space to examine my own practice and a sounding board for ideas and understanding, as we all share and develop understanding of each others practice and integrity, and support each other in our individual personal development.
