Jane Low BA Hons, MBACP Accredited
If you are feeling unhappy, depressed or anxious in some way, or struggling to resolve a particular problem I am a BACP Accredited counsellor/psychotherapist offering down-to-earth counselling to a wide variety of people.
I have 16 years experience of working within different settings encompassing many psychological problems. Very often people present with depression, anxiety including sometimes panic, or anger. Together we will try to resolve your problem/s in a way that will give you long-lasting relief. That might mean gaining more understanding of how your past has shaped your present, changing the way you think about certain things and perhaps changing some behaviours too.
My clients range in age from teenagers to the elderly and I offer both short term and long term therapy, depending on your choice and/or need. I offer counselling to INDIVIDUALS AND COUPLES and, as well as daytime sessions, I am able to offer evening and some weekend sessions where necessary.
My referrals come from doctors, colleagues and often through word of mouth. When a prospective client contacts me I always suggest he/she comes for an initial session to talk through what they want. It also gives time for me to explain more fully how I work. They can then decide whether they feel comfortable enough with me to continue.
How I work?
I draw on a combination of my humanistic, psychodynamic and CBT trainings. This means that my work is tailored to the needs of my client(s), be that more reflective, skill-based or frequently a combination of both. I adhere to the BACP ethical framework and am fully insured.
My clients bring many different problems such as:
- relationship issues,
I have been working in private practice for twelve years and I also work part-time with women in custody. My previous work in various other settings includes 6 years in a GP's surgery.
One previous client quoted:
"When I was at my lowest point and it was a struggle to get out of bed, I always made sure I got to my weekly therapy session because I knew that I would leave it feeling so much happier and better informed about my feelings and my life generally. I can't express how helpful it was for me".
