Janie Lennard MBACP (Snr. Accred) Counsellor/Psychotherapist
I started off my career in the biological sciences, and eventually became interested in counselling after having had some marital therapy. I have now been in the 'industry' for around 25 years! I work privately, and in agencies, as well as supervising other counsellors. I have spent about 8 years as a counselling trainer.
I am familiar with both short-term and longer term work.
My practice: - I work integratively, that is using ideas from different theoretical perspectives, mostly those from person-centred and psychodynamic orientations. This means I work very much with the client and their experience, at times looking into the past to try to understand what is happening today. I find this can be helpful in moving things on.
Where: - The room I use for my work is in Cirencester, where there is some free parking. Cirencester is easily accessible from Tetbury, Malmesbury and Swindon, and accessible from Cheltenham and Stroud too. I do a little work in Swindon as well.
Training, qualifications & experience
I started training at a youth counselling service, which used a person-centred model, then moved to a 3 year psychodynamic training. I qualified in 1991, and have thus been a qualified counsellor for more than 20 years.
I have been a part-time lecturer for 8 years, including training other counsellors, and am a counselling supervisor. I work privately and within agency settings.
I have ticked various boxes as areas of interest and expertise, but this is by no means exhaustive, and have some familiarity with many of the areas not ticked, so do ask if you have any queries.
