Jaine Weaver Counselling
The most important element in Counselling is a positive and trusting relationship between the client and the counsellor. Having the courage to take the step to contact someone for help is difficult and being able to feel comfortable with the Counsellor of choice is really important. I offer a warm and friendly, confidential space to help you feel comfortable as quickly as possible and the first appointment allows you the opportunity to decide if counselling or indeed the Counsellor is right for you. My experience has shown that Counselling can be truly transformational for people and I am passionate about helping people go through that journey of self understanding and transformation.
I work with Individuals one to one and also with Couples addressing many issues that arise in relationships. My background training has led me to work in an integrative way bringing in elements from a number of different models to best help the client's individual needs. More recent focused additional training in Couple Counselling has also enriched my knowledge in different ways of working with Couples.
I am currently working from two locations, Shrewsbury, Wem and can provide home visits if appropriate and necessary within the Shropshire area.
How Counselling can help?
Counselling is a process in which a person/couple can talk through issues or concerns that are causing stress/distress. Talking in Counselling allows you to explore and understand these issues or feelings and find a way to move forward with your life. There are many issues that could be helped with Counselling and these are identified below. One of the most often struggled with issue for people in the modern age are those related to stress and anxiety. Anxiety can lead to generalised anxiety disorder, panic attacks and fear's of physical health. Depression can be linked to these symptoms and often the two conditions get confused. Both anxiety and depression can be crippling and have a massive impact on quality of life and feelings of self worth. I have many years experience of helping people with these conditions and Counselling is a powerful tool to help suffers of these conditions.
What to expect in your first session.
You can contact me to answer any initial questions or concerns then decide whether you wish to book a first session. In this session an assessment is offered and opportunity to decide if Counselling is for you before booking subsequent sessions. Counselling can often be short term and solution focused where 4 - 10 sessions can be sufficient to address the issues. Sessions can be weekly or fortnightly.
There is disabled access in all venues where I work. Public parking in Shrewsbury & Wem.

I believe that the most important and most effective way to gain benefit from Counselling is by having a good connection and rapport with your therapist. My experience has led me to feel that this is something I am able to do with clients very quickly. I have a particular interest and passion for working with Couples and relationship issues as well as Adult one to one.
My work with Couples has included all groups including same sex and heterosexual, married, unmarried, open relationships as well as monogamous. I am nonjudgemental and treat everyone with respect and acceptance.
I am currently advancing my knowledge in different models of Couple therapy to enhance my practice.
My particular interest is in understanding Attachment issues and using Emotion Focused work in addition to other models of therapy to help clients.
