Jasmina Frzina is a Counselling Psychologist based in Manchester. She has worked as a psychologist for the past 18 years including forensic, adult and adolescent services. After working in the NHS and the Prison Service she joined the independent sector in 2014 as the Psychological Services Lead at a large Inpatient Mental Health Hospital. Jasmina was a chair of the North West Branch of the British Psychological Society between 2015-2017.
In practice, Jasmina works with a wide range of presenting difficulties that impact an individual’s life and emotional well-being. Her doctorate from the University of Manchester focused on Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and other humanistic-based approaches. Since then she has completed additional training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Emotionally Focused Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR), Schema Therapy, and attended in-house training in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy.
A core factor across these approaches is that Jasmine prioritises her relationship with the client and invites regular feedback about the client’s experience. She does this for the work to be collaborative and helpful to clients in overcoming their difficulties. She has a specialist interest in Couples Therapy, and provides clinical training on this to the University of Manchester Counselling Psychology Doctorate. Jasmina has provided training in CBT to doctoral candidates.
