Jane Alger BSc (Hons), Accred BACP, UKCP Reg, Adults, Children & Supervision
Life can be challenging and difficult for many reasons. There may be a singular or variety of circumstances within your life leading you to seek some support. Dealing with a problem on your own can feel like an isolating experience.
Within a safe and confidential setting, counselling provides an opportunity to talk about your thoughts, feelings and experiences. It enables growth and understanding and can also help process experiences of the past.
Whatever the difficulty is in your life
- Low self esteem
- Post traumatic stress disorder
- Everyday stress
Counselling gives an opportunity for a deeper understanding of yourself to enable changes you may choose to make within your life and for personal growth.
Working with Children
In 2008 I jointly founded The Schools Counselling Service which is still operational and into its 8th year. As a school counsellor, I offer play therapy, talking therapies, with children and young people.
Working closely with CAMHS and the Integrated Services Team for Suffolk County Council helping young people with issues such as bereavement and loss and self esteem
My integrative counselling approach is suitable for working with individuals, couples, groups, from a wide background of life experiences, reflecting the diversity of human needs.
I offer a non-judgemental space, working in a person-centred manner with empathy, genuineness and acceptance.
I am a qualified, experienced Counsellor/Psychotherapist, accredited with the BACP (The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and registered with the UKCP (United Kingdom counselling and psychotherapy).
With 15 years experience, working with adults in private practice, and 9 years, working in schools with teenagers and children.
I can offer clinical supervision, mentoring, on an individual basis or groups.
I very much look forward to hearing from you. Please email me or give me a call for an initial conversation.
