Jane Robinson Adv Dip Couns (Integrative), Advanced Cert CBT, MBACP (Accred)
I understand that problems in living can feel overwhelming and I believe that it takes great courage to allow yourself to acknowledge that you are struggling and to ask for help. You have taken an important step by seeking a counsellor and I hope that this search begins a process at the end of which, you feel more peaceful and in control of your personal world.
I can offer a confidential, safe, non judgemental space for you to talk through the things that are troubling you, and help you think about what might make life easier. I can provide counselling to individuals and couples who are 18 and over.
My training and experience (details below) mean that I am able to work in a flexible, adaptive way and I will aim to build a strong, honest and trusting relationship with you, so that together we might find some new ways for you to manage, or change the difficulties that have led you to seek help and support. The first session is free.
I have extensive experience and knowledge of the following:
Low self esteem.
Post Traumatic Stress.
I am also an experienced and qualified supervisor.
Training, qualifications & experience
Cert H.E Counselling.
Advanced Diploma H.E Counselling (Integrative) from Southampton University
Advanced Certificate Cognitive Behavioural Approaches to Psychotherapy.
Diploma H.E Casework Supervision.
I am a highly experienced counsellor, who has been practising since 2003. My primary work has been and is, in an organisational setting, where I am employed as a senior counsellor, offering individual and group therapies and providing clinical supervision to trainee counsellors and volunteers.
My integrative training (Clarkson's Five Relationships model) means that I have studied the three main approaches to counselling and psychotherapy: Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural. This means that I can offer a wide range of interventions and strategies, within a framework that prioritises the relationship between counsellor and client. In short, I can work in lots of different ways, but will always base what I offer you on what we both feel suits you best.

Thank you for visiting my profile. Please call, or email me me, so that I can find out what kind of difficulties you are experiencing, and begin to think with you about how I may be able to help you manage them.
In our first session, I will aim to find out more about you, to understand your problems and how they impact upon your life, and you will be able to get an idea about whether you think I am the right counsellor for you. We can also discuss how long it might take to change, or resolve the things that are causing you distress and what sort of approach would be the most helpful for you.
I hope to hear from you soon.
