Jan Maze - Integrative Counsellor MBACP
My Approach -
What is most important is that you feel heard and understood by me. I offer you a calm and welcome space to explore your thoughts and feelings. My commitment to you is that I will listen without judgement and help put you at ease. We will work together to build trust, to help you find your way forward, and at your pace.
Persistent, troubling thoughts, confusing and overwhelming feelings, or situations not of your choosing make life difficult at times. Perhaps there are issues from long ago that may still challenge you no matter how hard you try to forget them. Maybe recent events have taken their toll on you. Maybe the future does not look bright.
I can help you understand your thoughts and feelings; enable you to make decisions; assist you in coming to terms with events; help make clear where you find yourself in your life.
I also offer SKYPE sessions, and in some circumstances I may be able to offer home counselling.
My Experience - My professional and personal experience comes from working with adults in the areas of shock and trauma; sudden and expected death; living with a terminal diagnosis; pregnancy, birth and the post-natal period; major life changes; helping those supporting victims of sexual abuse.
Next Step - In the first place, I encourage you to email or telephone me with any questions you may have. I will answer emails and respond to voicemail at the end of the day I receive them.
Easy parking available.
