About me


I provide Psychotherapy / Counselling and Supervision believing that the uniqueness of the therapeutic relationship is like no other kind of relationship, it is a professional ethical contract where you will be valued, respected and listened to, in confidence and without judgement, as you discover your inner potential for emotional well-being.

I am aware that for many it's a big step to seek the help and support of a counsellor. Sometimes when faced with emotional conflict, such as depression, relationship issues, anxiety or a stressful situation, making any decision can be difficult.

I will facilitate you to find your way through your individual journey. Enabling you to rediscover your inner strength and direction towards developing a healthier life on all levels; emotional, psychological, physical and spiritual. Your lifestyle, your principles and your right to make your own decisions will be compassionately and respectively valued.


I offer Integrative Psychotherapy / Counselling , being influenced by theories of intervention such as Person Centred and CBT, in essence the presenting issues of each individual client determines the best type of therapy.  This is delivered in a safe and confidential environment, subscribing to the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) Code of Ethics & Practice. 
I can see private clients in several locations across the Teignbridge area of Devon depending on your requirements.

Integrative Counselling facilitates personal growth, promoting self-knowledge and emotional development. Counselling can help you focus on complex issues that may be concerning you and enable you to gain a deeper understanding, discovering your true potential and to aid awareness and perspective.

Jan Finn Counselling Service, has been established for many years offering Private Practice, Employment Assisted Programmes provision, alongside NHS contracts.  Over the past few years I have expanded, to also provide Supervision.
I was a founding Director of Devon's Counsellors Southwest, a successful Community Interest Company.


Whichever decisions you make, whether to engage with counselling today, tomorrow, or sometime in the future; to choose myself, or another reputable counselling service, I wish you well in your personal journey.
