About me

Are you struggling with anxiety or depression? Perhaps you feel ready to address past trauma?  Or maybe you are just feeling sad and stressed and you want someone to talk to.

Hello and welcome to my page.  My name is Jan and I am a psychodynamic counsellor with 17 years experience working with children, young people, adults, and couples from a wide range of backgrounds and age groups. I understand that modern life can present complex, confusing and challenging emotions and my sessions will allow you to explore and reflect on these emotions in a safe, calm environment. Or perhaps there is previous trauma that you now feel ready to address - together we can work through past issues to achieve a more positive outlook for the future. I am here to let you speak and be heard without judgement or interruption.

I can provide short-term or long-term counselling and we can explore different techniques to help you find coping mechanisms and make positive changes in your life. You can choose between face to face counselling in a safe and peaceful environment in an easy to reach, central Oxford location or alternatively telephone and online counselling using Teams.

I am a Registered Member of the BACP (MBACP) and I am DBS checked.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

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).

Further information

Although my working-model is based on a psychodynamic approach – which explores unconscious patterns of behaviour, particularly those stemming from childhood - I believe in adapting and reshaping my style to best suit the needs of each individual. I also actively use cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) if requested. It is a very popular and successful technique that examines day to day thoughts and behaviours to see how they impact on feelings, with the intention of breaking negative patterns and learning more positive coping techniques.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
