S. Jan Henthorn BSc Hons UKCP accred MBACP
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.
You can call me and leave a message, text me or 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.
