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.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
