About me

Counselling sessions are offered in Sea Mills & Whitchurch in Bristol. Zoom and WhatsApp sessions and some home visits are available*.

As a Person Centred Therapist I am non directive. Each person has their own motivation for positive change and if allowed to explore that motivation in a safe, non judgmental environment, then positive change can occur.

I trust my clients know themselves and their experiences better than I do. Our relationship is founded on unconditional positive regard, empathy and genuineness. Clients use their time in their own way and at their own pace to examine those areas causing them concern. My role is assisting clients in finding their own answers and solutions that are unique to them and their experience, to realize their own potentiality.

I work with people experiencing distress, anxiety or depression. Some are working through life crises, coming to terms with loss, have suffered abuse / emotional abuse, or are going through separation and divorce or relationship or family issues. I offer couple counselling, work with individuals and some children and young people. I am also able to offer assistance with issues of trauma, low self esteem and low self confidence, anger management, grief and loss, feeling sad, spirituality, obsessive compulsive disorders , panic and seasonal affective disorder. It's about enabling everyone to fulfill their potential.

My Initial Consultation is free so people feel welcome and able to make a choice. I charge £45 an hour for individuals, when I am counselling couples the fees are a little more. I also offer some discounted sessions, contact me for more details

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Further information

"When I first sought help from Jane I was on anti depressants and suffered from a very low self esteem. I no longer suffer from these negative emotions and my life has turned around. I have regained my old happy self and my self respect.
This rediscovered self respect has given me the courage to leave my old job which made me unhappy and I have started working for a new company and thoroughly enjoy my new employment.
I have rediscovered my zest for life and no longer take anti depressants thanks to the help of Jane."

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
