Dr Janet Haney
I see anyone who wants to know what is going wrong in their life. Come for an exploratory conversation to find out how I work; you will be able to tell me something about what has prompted you to ask for help, and something about your background and situation. You will be able to ask any questions you have and we can discuss how often you would like to come, and how much it will cost. It is quite usual to come a few times to explore these questions in more depth as you decide if it is something that is working for you.
Training, qualifications & experience
The three aspects to my training are: my own personal analysis; wide-ranging study (participation in regular lectures, conferences and study groups etc, reading, writing, editing, and translating both new ideas and landmark texts); and a wide and long experience of working with people of different ages and backgrounds and in different situations (school, hospitals, some charities, and a GP surgery), including a lot of one to one work under supervision.
Together with my colleagues, I help to run seminars and events that support and disseminate our way of working – in the Lacanian orientation of psychoanalysis. I work as editor and translator of texts for publication in the field too. This all helps to ensure that my work stays up to date and connected to a lively network of other dedicated and experienced practitioners from all around the world.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I welcome people who want to know more about what goes wrong in their life, no matter what form it takes.
It is hard to know what to do with this list of tick boxes. These kinds of lists try to give a name to something that is problematic, but it is the name that you give it that will be decisive in finding out what is going wrong.
If you want to know something about why and how you are suffering, you are welcome to come and describe your problem, and your ways of trying to deal with it, no matter how you choose to define it – whether it is with one of these phrases in the list, or one that you have worked out for yourself. It will be your words that will help to define the work and find the solutions.
Most of us find ways to hold things together in our life, but then sometimes it stops working – that is a good time to find a counsellor, and to work out what is going wrong.
