Janie Lennard MBACP (Snr. Accred) Counsellor/Psychotherapist



About me

I started off my career in the biological sciences, and became interested in counselling after having had some marital therapy. I have now been in the 'industry' for around 30 years! I work privately, and in agencies, as well as supervising other counsellors. I have spent about 8 years as a counselling trainer, including co-tutoring Diploma.  As regards students who require personal therapy, I am familiar with the CPCAB training, as well as students who train 'in house' with other organisations.

I am familiar with both short-term and long term work, and work fortnightly on occasion, or can offer twice-a-week under certain circumstances.

My practice: - I work integratively, that is using ideas from different theoretical perspectives, mostly those from person-centred and psychodynamic orientations. This means I work very much with the client and their experience, at times looking into the past to try to understand what is happening today. I find the latter can be helpful in moving things on.

Where: - The room I use for my work is in Cirencester, where there is some free parking.   Cirencester is easily accessible from Tetbury, Malmesbury and Swindon, and accessible from Cheltenham and Stroud too.

Training, qualifications & experience

I started training at a youth counselling service, which used a person-centred model, then moved to a 3 year psychodynamic training. I qualified in 1991, and have thus been a qualified counsellor for more than 25 years.

I have been a part-time lecturer for 8 years, including training other counsellors, and am a counselling supervisor. I work privately and within agency settings.
I have ticked various boxes as areas of interest and expertise, but this is by no means exhaustive, and I have familiarity with many of the areas not ticked, so do ask if you have any queries.
