Jane Maxfield JLM Counselling
I am a general counsellor who specialises in pre and post bereavement counselling for adults and children. I have 37 years experience as a registered nurse and 13 years experience working in a hospice with patients who are approaching the end of their life and supporting families through their grief journey.
What is counselling?
Counselling offers you a safe, confidential place to talk about your life and anything that may be confusing, painful or uncomfortable.
Pre bereavement counselling:
Person who is ill – 50 minute sessions.
I provide emotional support to someone who has been diagnosed with a life limiting illness. During the session I will help the person to explore any anxieties, concerns or worries they may have which can also include planning and giving advice for end of life care.
Adults – 50 minute sessions
I provide emotional support to people caring for someone who has a life limiting illness, giving them the opportunity to talk about their thoughts and feelings at this difficult time.
Children – 40–50 minute sessions
I can give advice to adults on how to talk to a child about someone who has a life limiting illness.
I can also see children to work with them to help them deal with someone close to them who is approaching end of life.
Post bereavement counselling:
Adults – 50 minute sessions
Following the death of someone close to them a person can feel it would be helpful to talk to someone who doesn’t know them. With post bereavement counselling you are given the time, in a confidential and non-judgemental environment, to talk about how you are feeling at this sad time. Some people need 2-3 sessions whilst others need many more. Grieving is very much an individual situation and each person will deal with their grief differently.
Children 40-50 minute sessions
I can provide bereavement support advice for adults who have a child who has had a bereavement.
I can also see children and work with them to explore their reaction to the death of someone close to them.
