About Us

Jean Langford

I am the founder of Ipsum Counselling and Coaching and am a fully qualifiedJean Langford and insured, Life Coach, BACP registered integrative therapist, specialising in Person-Centred Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy as well as a Critical Incident Debriefer.

I offer a confidential and non-judgmental space to talk and offer guidance if needed. Qualified in both psychotherapy and life coaching I can work on an individual basis, tailoring the counselling to suit your needs allowing me to apply the skills and techniques that are most effective for you.

I work towards empowering you to develop the skills and the confidence needed to bring about long-lasting, positive change for better mental wellbeing.  I believe that physical health impacts mental health so I work on solution-focused strategies to get you where you want to be.

I can provide sessions on a one to one basis, or with couples, group workshops, and can also provide corporate training for mental health first aiders.

My expertise is not limited to adults only.  I am trained to work with children and adolescents. I spent 2 years working with Place2Be within schools in the Manchester area and worked with Barnardos as a therapist with children up to 18yrs old with an array of different crisis points.

Stacie Voice

My Name is Stacie Voice and I am a fully qualified Therapeutic Counsellor. Icompleted my diploma in Therapeutic Counselling in 2013 and since qualifying, I have worked in a number of therapy services including the NHS, local charities, and private practice. I have also completed additional training in trauma, working with young adults, and crisis management.

I work in an integrative way, this means that I use a number of different techniques and elements from different therapy models, for example, humanistic, cognitive behavioural therapy, and solution-focused. I offer a safe, confidential, non-judgemental, open, and honest approach to counselling, along with a splash of creativity if desired.

I work with anyone over the age of 16 and have extensive experience of working with individuals who have experienced trauma, severe and enduring mental health illness, self-harming behaviours, suicidal behaviours, or who experience intense episodes of mental health crisis. In addition to this, I also have extensive experience working with bereavement, anger, anxiety (including health anxiety), low mood and depression.

I believe that nobody should do it alone and that at times we all need someone who can walk beside us on our journey to positive emotional wellbeing.
