Janine McCafferty, Counsellor (FdA, MBACP)
The Isbourne Holistic Centre
3 Wolseley Terrace
01242 808 017
Hello and welcome.
You may have arrived here because you’re finding life tough at the moment, perhaps feeling helpless, overwhelmed, confused, anxious, or even angry. It is very natural for all of us to experience challenging times in our lives, when we may need to reach out for help and support.
Speaking with family and friends can be difficult – maybe we don’t want to burden them, perhaps we have tried and it hasn't helped, or we simply can’t share what’s troubling us.
Sometimes it is easier to speak freely with someone outside of your social circle, who is professionally trained to help.
I am interested in hearing about what’s worrying you, and how this is impacting on you, and your life. I will listen without judging, or telling you what to do.
I am a patient, compassionate counsellor with a gentle nature, who is easy to talk to. I will support you in exploring what's troubling you, which can help you to understand why you feel the way you do, and to find a way forward.
Thoughts from clients
"Thank you for believing in me when I couldn't see a way to believe in myself"
"I found my experience very positive and helpful. Janine was brilliant and helped me in so many ways."
Speaking with a counsellor can be a huge relief and reduce feelings of struggling alone. It can offer a new perspective, increased clarity, and support healing and growth, enabling you to feel more at ease with yourself, and in your relationships with others.
Please do get in touch today by sending an email using the buttons on this page, or calling me on
01242 808 017. I offer a FREE telephone consultation, where you can ask me any questions you have about counselling. We can then arrange a counselling session, if you wish.
Thanks for your visit, and I look forward to hearing from you.
