Jane Blake MBACP Adults, Young People & Children
I am an experienced & approachable Counsellor for Adults, Young People & Children. Counselling has positive benefits for everyone with concerns on their mind as it is a place where you are heard, valued & respected & can open up to a trusted person who is objective & has the time to focus on you 100% & work alongside you at your own pace towards positive change. I work sensitively by combining the benefits of several therapeutic approaches to best suit individual needs & wishes. I have helped many clients at varying stages of their lives & continue to provide personalised sessions which are finely tuned in order to fit with your unique situation.
I provide a relaxed, tranquil place where you are heard, valued & respected without judgement. Counselling can reduce levels of anxiety & stress, lift depression, increase self-awareness & create a sense of empowerment. However challenging this may feel, acknowledging & voicing your need for support is a courageous step to take & may be the first step towards positive change for you.
Counselling is a collaborative process built on deep trust & I am dedicated to holding the best interests of every client at the centre of my work.
I have worked as a 1:1 Counsellor & Group Facilitator in several adult organisations locally eg) Clarity, NDADA North Devon Against Domestic Abuse & Wand on an emergency helpline.
I have been a counsellor within secondary schools & a college of further education where my main focus has often been to reduce anxiety, raise self-esteem & confidence levels, & uncover individual strengths & inner resources.
I currently work at Young Devon providing talking & creative therapy. I work imaginatively to allow children the space & time to express their individuality with confidence.
Please feel welcome to leave your contact details on my answerphone or send them via e-mail & I will respond as soon as I can.
I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

'Contact in psychotherapy is like the substructure of a building. It is seldom seen but it undergirds and supports all that is above ground.'
