Jan Maze - Counsellor MBACP
My Approach - What is most important is that you feel heard, accepted and understood by me. My commitment to you is that I will listen without judgement and will put you at ease. Working together, as a team, we will help you find your way forward.
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 and you'd like someone to talk to.
It takes courage to face what is difficult but as Robert Emerson said "The worst becomes the best, only for the brave".
Online sessions using "ZOOM or WHATSAPP" are available for the foreseeable future.
My Experience - My professional and personal experience comes from working with adults in the areas of major life changes; shock and trauma; anxiety; sudden and expected death; living with a terminal diagnosis; pregnancy, birth and the post-natal period; 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.
My practice is from my private, secluded counselling room in my home.

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.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
