About me

I am a fully qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist and member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy with accreditation status. I have over 17 years experience working as a senior practitioner in private practice and as a senior counsellor within various organisations too.

I see people from all walks of life with different backgrounds, professions and age. I have worked with a vast range of different issues over many years. Often, by taking that first step to pick up the phone, can be a huge leap forward.

I am trained in a number of approaches, therefore the counselling I offer is flexible. You may decide on a few brief sessions or extend counselling to suit more longer term. You may decide on CBT or an approach that feels more solution focussed? Perhaps you just need the space and time to just talk something through, or seek some clarity to a problem? Maybe you are struggling to let go of an issue and move forward? Or a past issue feels unfinished? I also work with various trauma models, including working alongside survivors of sexual assault or abuse, trauma incidents etc
Whatever the issue, your sessions are offered within a peaceful, non-judgmental, secure and confidential setting in which to talk about whatever may be troubling you .

Why Counselling?
Counselling can support you through times of feeling anxiety, depression, periods of stress, trauma, change or loss - perhaps you are feeling stuck or at a dead end in life? Counselling can enable you to live a more meaningful life, understand yourself better so you can help yourself and achieve your personal goals. It can also help with periods of transition throughout life and times of change.

It can be difficult to take that first step forward, and your contact will be treated with respect, non judgement and confidentiality. I draw on many years of experience and provide a high standard counselling service.Therapy is tailored to each individual, and can help you with a wide range of issues such as:-

  • Relationship issues
  • Separation/Divorce
  • Affairs or betrayal
  • Abuse & trauma counselling
  • Sexual abuse
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Trauma
  • Family issues
  • Bereavement
  • Stress
  • Change/Loss of direction
  • Crisis
  • Abuse/Physical/Emotional
  • Addiction
  • Work related issues
  • Low self esteem/ Low self worth
  • Emotional issues

What happens when you make contact?
Your contact, whether by phone call, email or by text is welcome. You can leave a message and we can arrange a suitable time to talk. If, after discussion you decide to go ahead, we can arrange an initial appointment  to talk through your issues and the reasons for coming.

An initial appointment will usually take place within a week of your enquiry. This appointment lasts for about one hour during which time you will be able to discuss what has prompted you to seek counselling, and to assess your counselling needs. This is an important meeting as it gives the opportunity to consider what kind of help you require and whether you would like to take up the opportunity for counselling. In some cases a referral to a different agency may be more suitable for your current needs. The importance is for you to have informed choices.

If you do decide to go ahead, an appointment to start your counselling sessions will be made. You may decide on short term or open ended therapy, perhaps a block of sessions?

Whatever difficulty you are facing, whether it is change, a past issue, moving forward, a current situation or circumstance that troubles you, or simply feeling stuck, you are most welcome to telephone or email to book an initial appointment, or alternatively if you have a question or query.

Kind Regards
Diane Jane
