Jane Bronwyn Holder
Many of us have been wounded by life in one way or another and making the decision to start working towards feeling better and living more fully can seem to be daunting and sometimes difficult. As a qualified and experienced counsellor, based in Shepperton, I am here to listen, support and help you through the difficulties you or your family might be facing. I offer compassionate, confidential and non-judgmental counselling in a safe space where we can explore the changes you would like to make in your life.
Working with adult individuals I have an extensive range of experience and training in many areas including bereavement and loss, bullying, abuse, depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, phobias and work related issues.
I offer both long and short term (Solution Focused Brief Therapy) counselling and 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. Counselling is therefore tailored to suit your individual needs and will be mutually agreed.
I work to the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) code of ethics and my aim is to offer each individual unconditional positive regard, empathy, genuineness and respect for you, your values and your personal belief system.
Our main practice is located within easy reach of Shepperton station and bus stops. Free street parking is available.

Peer group Supervision.
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.
