Jen Shackleton - Wellbeing Therapy & Coaching


Hello, my name is Jen and welcome to Peace Within...


I combine a variety of clinically-proven complementary therapies which remove emotional blocks, restore emotional freedom and balance, and break unhelpful thought patterns.  

At my clinic in Saffron Walden, Essex, I see clients on a one-to-one basis, both adults and children with their parents, and home visits can also be arranged.

I offer informal consultations either in person or by phone for clients who wish to know more or have questions.  

Appointments are tailored to each client's chosen focus; the first session is 90 minutes, and follow up sessions are 60 minutes in length.

I am willing to travel - please contact me with your postcode if you would like me to travel to you.

I am fully insured and DBS-checked.  I maintain very high standards of professional confidentiality and you will be treated with the utmost respect and care. I am an EFT Level 1 & 2 and NLP Practitioner and I combine my wellness work with my career in primary education.  Alongside Peace Within, I am the Year 3 teacher at Thaxted Primary School and a freelance Pound and Clubbercise instructor at

I am looking forward to working with you, as you find peace within.

What my one-to-one clients are saying...

"For years I have suffered from pain, stress, anxiety and - more recently - bereavement, grief and more stress. I'd tried everything: lots of counselling, hypnotherapy, self-help books and even medication, but all those things only really scratched the surface. So, when I saw Jen's post on Facebook, I was intrigued.  Jen explained everything in full detail - she put me at complete ease and was so reassuring! Straight afterwards, I knew that something had shifted within me. The following day I felt so empowered, I had more energy and the willingness to do things with a real 'get up and go' attitude. I felt like a completely different person - a weight had been lifted. If you're troubled about anything, please book in to see Jen, she is the most wonderful, kind and caring person. Jen will look after you and she's there every step of the way. Thank you so much." A.G. of Saffron Walden.

“I am an academic psychologist and I have spent my career examining the mechanisms of cognitive based interventions. Having previously tried various ‘talking therapies’ to address my personal struggles with grief, and emotional issues from early life, I was left feeling frustrated at how unhelpful they were in removing my physical holding of emotional pain. I had two sessions with Jen, each 90 minutes long.  I was shocked by the physical echoes which I experienced from working with Jen, especially as I am a trained critical examiner of such therapies.  Jen has helped me so much and I would strongly recommend working with her.  She’s a powerful protagonist for change and such an enjoyable therapist.” B.F. of Oxford.

What my clients are saying after my workshops...

"A truly fantastic experience. I highly recommend this workshop. Amazing 1:1 time with my son in a calm, open and safe environment. The content was absolutely fascinating and really opened my mind! I was able to take away techniques from the class to use in everyday life. My son engaged throughout and he said he felt very calm following the relaxation at the end.  Thank you Jen." S.J. of Thaxted.

"A fun workshop absolutely full of interesting information about the mind/body connection and loads of really useful practical techniques. Jen's warm personality immediately put everyone at ease. It was obvious that everything had been very carefully thought out and Jen was really organised." J.W. of Saffron Walden.

"What a wonderful opportunity to learn about yourself and your children altogether.  Myself and my two children really enjoyed it and understand one another better as a result. We look forward to using the techniques Jen taught us and reaping the benefits! Thanks Jen." K.M. of Saffron Walden.

"The workshop was great and both my girls and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Jen was full of energy and very engaging, and the time flew by. We feel that we have gained some useful tools that we can use in our busy and at times stressful lives, and I warmly recommend this class to all parents and their teenagers." A.W. of Saffron Walden.

"The lady who took the EFT meeting on Thursday was really good.  I had never heard of it and I am sure it will help many people, both like us carers and others too who live with stressful lives now - which means most of us these days. I can think of several occasions when it will be helpful and it doesn't take up much time either. She was so enthusiastic and helpful to the group too, I do hope she will return to speak to us again." Feedback from a carer, following my presentation at the Cambridgeshire Carers' Trust, May 2018.
