Jane Chase helping Individuals, Couples & Families

I have been working as a counsellor for over 10 years, and have experience in offering support for a wide variety of issues for individuals, couples and families. I have helped people with anxiety, low self esteem, family and relationship issues, life transitions, betrayal, suicidal feelings, separation, depression, addiction, improved self care, trauma, loss, grief, life crisis, abuse and disordered eating.
If you are looking for Couples Counselling I can help you address issues that are affecting your relationship. This can include issues of betrayal, improved communication and understanding, issues of intimacy, closeness and trust.
In Family Counselling several members of a family can come together and bring any issues that are having an effect on everyone within the family system. This approach works flexibly with different family members as and when it feels necessary.
It's not unusual to come to counselling with only a vague sense that something is not quite right. Counselling is a good place to start working it out as having the questions is the first step to change. Alternatively you might already know exactly what the problem is and are looking for tools, strategies and support to help you deal with the issue. I work holistically, with an understanding that many contexts inform who we are, and have a broad understanding that body, soul and spirit are all relevant to our development and healing.
I am currently furthering my profession and am recognised as a Family and Systemic Psychotherapist in advanced training. (MSc University of Birmingham in Systemic Psychotherapy with Birmingham NHS Trust.)
You are welcome to speak with me on the phone for an initial conversation which will give you a sense of whether I might be the right person for you.
