Jan Maze - Integrative Counsellor MBACP
My Approach -
What is most important is that you feel heard and understood by me. My commitment to you is that I will listen without judgement and help put you at ease. Working together 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.
I also offer ZOOM 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. My practice is in a quiet village location with easy parking.
