Counselling sessions are offered in Sea Mills & Whitchurch in Bristol and Skype, some home visits are available*.
As a Person Centred Therapist I am non directive. Each person has their own motivation for positive change and if allowed to explore that motivation in a safe, non judgmental environment, then positive change can occur.
I trust my clients know themselves and their experiences better than I do. Our relationship is founded on unconditional positive regard, empathy and genuineness.Clients use their time in their own way and at their own pace to examine those areas causing them concern. My role is assisting clients in finding their own answers and solutions that are unique to them and their experience, to realize their own potentiality.
I work with people experiencing distress, anxiety or depression. Some are working through life crises, coming to terms with loss, have suffered abuse / emotional abuse, or are going through separation and divorce or relationship or family issues. I offer couple counselling, work with individuals and some children and young people. I am also able to offer assistance with issues of trauma, low self esteem and low self confidence, anger management, grief and loss, spirituality, obsessive compulsive disorders and seasonal affective disorder. It's about enabling people to fulfill their potential.
My Initial Consultation is free so people feel welcome and able to make a choice. I charge £40 an hour for individuals, when I am counselling couples the fees are a little more.

"When I first sought help from Jane I was on anti depressants and suffered from a very low self esteem. I no longer suffer from these negative emotions and my life has turned around. I have regained my old happy self and my self respect.
This rediscovered self respect has given me the courage to leave my old job which made me unhappy and I have started working for a new company and thoroughly enjoy my new employment.
I have rediscovered my zest for life and no longer take anti depressants thanks to the help of Jane."
