About me

I am a integrative psychotherapist offering individual therapy and individual or group supervision. We use the therapeutic relationship to work on what you bring and understand how it is for you to be you...and how this came about. As a therapist, my greatest strength is in working on qualities of relationship with the self, with others and with the world; so I am interested in you from every aspect: your history, beliefs, culture, identity, current situation and hopes for the future. My website gives more detail.

As a supervisor for therapists, counsellors and related professions, I hold the overview of your professional context, your theoretical framework, your personal process, your practice and your self care. I provide a warmly challenging, ethical and supportive space in which you can develop as a practitioner and retain your autonomy and responsibility. I can also support the process of individual accreditation and further career development.

My website supplies more detail...www.janetdowding.co.uk and I also have a profile on Pink Therapy detailing the specialist training I have received in gender and sexual diversity.
