Jenny Shepherd

I am a passionate, committed and focused professional. I offer you a space to feel listened to and discuss your background and history. Together we can assess, reset, review and monitor life's challenges to eventually offer you supportive steps towards recovery.

I am respectful, non judgemental and offer open and honest guidance and feel hugely privileged supporting anyone who comes to the ZenMINDpod for support and find my work rewarding.

Supporting your mental health

I have over 30 years experience working within this context. I strive to support individuals or groups, and I specialise in supporting students at school, college or university with their mental wellbeing, before during and after their time in education.

to improve their personal mental health management. Whether your feeling low, anxious, depressed or struggling with more acute and enduring mental health conditions.

ZenMINDpod aims to teach you new skills, resilience and the power of how to settled yourself and feel more in control. Working alongside you to thrive forward and develop your own supportive coping strategies, sustainable techniques through adversity and reach positive outcomes.



I have current UK professional registration with The Health and Care Professional Council HCPC  / Social Work England and I am a recognised Social Worker  / Mental Health Practitioner.

I am also a member of British Association of Social Work BASW.



I have always worked in the care industry, within Social Care and Mental Health, providing voluntary and statutory services through all age ranges.  In addition, I am a qualified complementary therapist, social worker, mental health practitioner, Mindfulness coach and Emotional Freedom Therapist.

In 2000, I founded Ray of Light Complimentary Therapy business with the aim of providing individualised 'Tools for Stress' Management, treatment and recovery; incorporating physical therapies like Reiki, Indian Head Massage, Reflexology and Aromatherapy. Complementary Therapies ensured my patients returned to feeling relaxed, settled and soothed. I had private clients and also offered my services to a wellbeing programme for parents of children under 5; this was a part of the Goverments Sure Start initiative. My expertise was provided as a reward for young mothers reducing their alcohol intake, drug use and smoking to ensure healthy breastfeeding; which was extremely successful.
