Jan Bagley MBACP (Accred)
My objective is to create an open and trusting relationship between myself and my client which will help them gain a better understanding of themselves, and find the resources to move forward.
I have more than 15 years of experience, and I consider myself an integrative counsellor with a person-centred focus. I have developed an intuitive and supportive style using appropriate tools to suit my clients’ needs. I like to develop rapport, trust, and openness in order to explore underlying issues that may be unsettling and intruding upon my clients’ lives.
I believe it is crucial that you find the right counsellor or therapist for you. As such, I recommend that we have a free, informal chat before booking our first session to make sure we can work together effectively.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am registered with, and accredited by the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy as a registered Independent Counsellor working in a Person-Centred and CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) and MCBT (Mindfulness Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) approaches.
As an accredited member of the BACP I abide by a Code of Ethics and Practice, and as required by this Code my counselling work is always regularly supervised.
I teach Person-Centred Counselling to students at CPCAB Diploma Level 4, and as a Visiting Lecturer at Lincoln Bishop Grossteste University to undergraduate students of Psychology. I continue to work on my own personal development and have recently started an MSc in Psychology, Psychiatry & Neuroscience.
In the past I have worked on a voluntary basis for agencies specifically for Survivors of Child Sex Abuse for Males and for Females. Over the years this work has given me a wide experience of working with Trauma and Memories.
My main influences lie in existential counselling, social constructionism, and narrative therapy.
I also teach and practice Mindfulness Meditation, and I continue to study and attend workshops to further my understanding, and improve my ability to help people.
