Jane Bronwyn Holder BA (Hons) MBACP - Video & Telephone counselling
DISTANCE THERAPY PROVIDER / ONLINE COUNSELLING PRACTITIONER:
As a qualified and experienced counsellor, I am here to listen, support and help you through the difficulties you or your family might be facing in these unprecedented times and offer compassionate, confidential and non-judgmental counselling via telephone, Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp or FaceTime. I fully understand that making the decision to start counselling can sometimes be daunting and difficult and I am committed to helping and supporting you at all times.
Working with adult individuals I have an extensive range of experience and training in many areas including anxiety, panic attacks, bereavement, loss, P.T.S.D. bullying, abuse, depression, GAD, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem and work related issues.
Offering both long and short term (Solution Focused Brief Therapy) counselling, therapy can be just a few sessions or may continue over several weeks or months. This will depend entirely on your individual requirements and situation. All counselling is therefore tailored to suit your specific and unique needs.
I am closely monitoring the World Health Organisation and local authority guidances in order to maintain the health and wellbeing of my clients and with face to face counselling currently not being advisable, existing clients can continue their sessions either as structured telephone or online video counselling. In these especially trying times we also welcome all new clients and, subject to availability, can offer you counselling in your own home via video or telephone.
Working to the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) code of ethics I believe that each and every individual is of intrinsic worth. I therefore offer each person unconditional positive regard, empathy, genuineness and respect for you, your values and your personal belief system and offer each individual the highest level of confidentiality.

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.

Concessions offered for
I volunteered with Cruse Bereavement Care for many years before going into Private Practice as one of my passions is to help and support clients who are working through bereavement issues. This situation can often lead to other interrelated issues such depression, anger, anxiety, lack of confidence and low self esteem. In addition to this, I also volunteered as a Counsellor with a Counselling agency based in Surbiton which enabled me to both help and support a diverse range of clients who presented a wide variety of issues.
Some of the lectures I have given include speaking on Attachemnt Theory at a youth conference in Scotland and teaching a three day teaching and training workshop for volunteer counsellors based in Cairo.
I am also a member of a unique UK based Orthodox Psychotherapy Group and of the Association of Christian Counsellors. I attend regular conferences, training and lectures and ensure that I keep up to date with the latest research findings.
