Jan Billington. FDA Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP Reg)
Face to Face:
I am passionate about my work, and I believe we all possess the capacity to heal ourselves through therapeutic interventions.
Person-centred therapy uses an approach that allows you to take more of a lead in discussions so that, in the process you will discover your own solutions. I act as a caring facilitator, listening without judgement and acknowledging your experience without moving the conversation in another direction. I am there to encourage and support you and to guide the therapeutic process without interrupting or interfering with your process of self-discovery.
I understand the importance of choosing a counsellor who you feel you could ‘connect with’ and whilst this can be daunting, it can be one of the best choices in life you can make. As a humanistic therapist, I offer a warm and friendly, non-judgemental environment where you are free to share your inner thoughts.
My approach can be helpful for people who are suffering from grief and loss through bereavement, and it can also benefit people who have depression and anxiety.
I also offer Eco-therapy which means ‘restoring and developing well-being through connection with nature’. Connecting with nature in this way can have lots of positive health benefits.
It helps to improve mental health and well-being, whilst studies show that being in nature reduces anger, anxiety and stress. Spending time in nature reduces blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension and the production of stress hormones.
Mindfulness is about being present in the moment, paying attention on purpose to the present moment, being aware. It can help us to increase our ability to regulate emotions, decrease stress, anxiety and depression.
I offer this walking/talking service, which is a relatively new approach to counselling. There are many benefits to this approach, particularly for those who are feeling disconnected with life in general.
If you feel this may be of benefit to you, we can discuss this during your initial consultation.
