Jessica Cotton - Trainer Consultant
Jessica’s special area of interest is psychological trauma and how this not only impacts people’s ability to engage with services but also staff resilience and how this shapes service culture.
Most recently, Jessica was the Trauma Informed Development lead for YMCA Downslink group responsible to co-ordinating the roll out of the ‘trauma informed’ approach across the organisation’s services to children, young people and their families in Sussex.
Since qualifying as a psychodynamic counsellor in 2012, Jessica has worked in both private practice and the charity sector providing time limited and open ended psychodynamic counselling to young people and adults. Currently, as well as being a part of our training team, Jessica works with an online counselling service providing counselling to children and young people 11-25.
