About me

Welcome to Jane Burton Counselling. I see adults and children in my business premises in the town centre location of Buxton. This safe, confidential space is where you can explore how to bring about the positive life changes that you would like.

I believe that we all have the ability to solve our own problems but it sometimes becomes difficult to see how this is possible. Working with me, I can help to uncover issues that prevent you from making changes or seeing the choices that life has to offer. Counselling can help you heal old wounds, deal with current anxieties and stress and get you out of a rut when you don't know what to do next. Together, we can explore and understand your deeper self.

I work with clients on a short or long term basis. I see individuals and couples as well as teenagers and children, integrating a variety of different approaches that best suit your needs.
My areas of specific interest and experience are of working with adults, teenagers and children suffering the effects of grief and loss, as well as people suffering from anxiety and depression.
The number of sessions varies from person to person and we regularly review our work together so that you are getting the most out of your sessions and you can decide the length of your therapy.

Counselling is often known as a talking therapy. Sometimes, people cannot find the words to express their feelings or thoughts; they might be too painful or so deeply hidden that the person cannot, or fears reaching them. Working creatively can often access that oh-so-wonderful tool we all have - the mind. Each client's work is unique to their own story.
I also use visualisation techniques to address panic attacks and fears.

Before training as a counsellor and psychotherapist I worked for many years as a clinician in various NHS settings. This lead to a particular interest in the effects of emotional wellbeing on patient's recovery and my belief that the mind plays a vital role in healthcare.

As well as my private practice, I also work as a adult and young person's counsellor in a Hospice.
