S. Jan Henthorn
Hi, my name is Jan. What’s on your mind? Whatever your problem, my approach is to provide you with a safe and calm space, offering time for you to talk through what is troubling you in a confidential environment.
Sometimes life seems stressful, dissatisfying or lonely. All kinds of situations can lead to us getting stuck with some difficult feelings. I provide a safe, calm space for you to explore how you have reached where you are now and explore the changes you are hoping to make. Understanding how life experiences have formed who we are gives us insight into how we have become stressed, stuck or dissatisfied. This insight also helps us to understand what we need to change to feel better.
I offer short term or long term counselling, you decide what you need.
I have worked with many different clients over the last few years dealing with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, eating disorders, relationship issues, bereavement, abuse, trauma and personality conditions.
I am an integrative counsellor. This means that I use a blend of the techniques I have been trained in. These include person centred, psychodynamic, attachment, gestalt, CBT, mindfulness, dealing with abuse and trauma through somatic experiencing. I am a Human Toolbox practitioner trained by Lindy Wheeler. I do some work for the NHS using NICE approved Person Centred Experiential methods.
I graduated from Middlesex University in 2015 with Matrix Training and I am a fully accredited UKCP counsellor. I am a registered member of BACP and I am working towards full BACP accreditation.
Email me to set up an initial session. At the first session we will talk about what you want to get out of counselling. If you are happy to continue we will set up a second session, and I will arrange to see you weekly/fortnightly.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
