About Me

Hello! I’m Jenny

Dr Jenny Uppal, CEO of CEGR

I am a fully qualified and registered Educational and Child Psychologist with over 25 years’ experience of working with parents, families and children with a wide range of complex needs in various settings. I have enjoyed finding ways to support those who find it difficult to access room based therapeutic support. I have developed a high level of expertise in supporting parents, carers and those working with children and vulnerable people, to enable emotional development to occur where it has previously been disrupted.

I am a qualified Equine Facilitated Psychotherapist. I love bringing animals and particularly horses into the therapeutic situation as their ability to foster self-awareness and emotional development is incredibly powerful.

I also enjoy working with horses to inspire confidence, support team work and build leadership in organisations and businesses.

My Approach & Values

When emotional development has been disrupted it can lead to a range of social, emotional, behavioural and mental health issues.

If this has happened the presenting difficulties can be effectively addressed by promoting emotional development through key relationships. Enabling those who have key relationships with children and vulnerable people to foster the emotional growth of the people in their care is a powerful way to address emotional, mental health and behavioural difficulties.

Our experience of supporting hundreds of vulnerable people and those that care for them, is that amazing opportunities arise for enotional growth and healing through natural everyday life experiences and nurturing relationships.
