Jan Stanton BA(Hons) Psychology MBACP(accred)UKRPC registered
I am a friendly , very experienced counsellor, accredited with the BACP. I inderstand how difficult it can be to make that first step to reach out for some support.
we will start with an initial assessment session where we can talk over the issues that have brought you to counselling. This is a chance for you to meet me and ask questions about me and how I work. There will be no pressure to agree to future sessions, the decision is yours and must feel right to you.
If you decide that you do want to work with me then I suggest you consider coming for six weeks initially. At the end of the six weeks we can decide if the sessions are useful for you and if you wish to continue.
If you continue we will review the work on a regular basis to see if it is still useful. I am aware that many factors have to be considered including time and money as well as the nature of the issues that you bring.
I work in Victoria, just minutes from the rail and tube station , on Wednesday until 9.00pm . I work in Mitcham on a Thursday from 8.30 am to 9.00pm
I also offer counselling by Skype and telephone on other days of the week
Training, qualifications & experience
My background is in the helping professions both in the voluntary and the statutory sector where I have worked for over 30 years.I currently manage the Mind in Croydon counselling service ..
I have over 18 years experience working as a counsellor and am accredited with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. This means I abide by the BACPs ethical framework and guidance on good practice in counselling and psychotherapy www.bacp.co.uk
I have worked with individuals and groups and have considerable experience of mental health issues, addiction, emotional abuse and sexual abuse . Some of the issues I have worked with are relationship issues, separation, divorce, affairs, family issues, anxiety, depression, bipolar/manic depression ,abuse, alcohol and drug addiction, co- dependency and employment issues.
My training is in Integrative Humanistic Counselling, this means that I will treat you as a whole person, mind body and spirit. I have been taught a wide range of styles including Gestalt, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Transactional Analysis. I do not use one approach all of the time but choose from the range according to what will suit and help you.
I tend to think of myself as equipped with a tool box from which I pick and choose.
