About me

Hello and Welcome to my website.

My name is Jan West and I am a professionally qualified Accredited Counsellor. I have many years experience in counselling and have worked in numerous different settings with a wide variety of clients.

My theory base is Transactional Analysis. The benefit of TA is the understanding of ourselves and our relationships. I enjoy using a variety of transactional tools with clients and some really enjoy the visual experience of this work.

I am currently working in GP surgeries for the NHS, I also have my own private practice.

I enjoy working with a variety of issues such as depression, anxiety, and panic attacks. I have worked with a lot of relationship issues, interpersonal skills and also personal development. I also have experience in working with bereavement and loss issues.

My specialist areas are in rape & sexual abuse, which includes, childhood abuse issues, physical abuse and trauma.

I am a member of the BACP and adhere to their Code of Ethics.

I am committed to my own personal and professional development. I do this by attending workshops, seminars, reading journals and I am part of a network of colleagues. This enables me to cross refer if it becomes apparent during our work together that you need a specialism I do not have.

I work in a quiet area of Hedge End with easy access to the M27. Appointments are available daytimes, evenings and on Saturdays.

I offer one-to-one counselling to individuals who may be experiencing difficulties or require more understanding of themselves.

With regard to the number of sessions I find it helpful when we meet to discuss individual needs as some people find several sessions are enough and others require more. We can work this out together for as long as we both feel it is beneficial.
