Jane Clark, MBACP; Higher Dip.Counselling; Dip.Supervision
While appreciating your uniqueness, I will work with you in a supportive and collaborative way, while we explore your life experiences and the behaviours, feelings and emotions that may be causing you difficulties or affecting your day to day life. I work with you, looking at your past and present situations and helping you to find strategies for positive change. I am very aware of the importance of developing a trusting and open relationship while we work together.
Throughout our work, I will be conscious of your individuality; you have your own background and perspectives. No problem is too big or too small to bring to counselling - if something is affecting your well-being and day to day life then it's important to get help and feel supported. I offer a non-judgmental and accepting space to explore deep feelings and aspects of your life or yourself that you'd like to change or understand.
I have years of experience working with situations such as stress, anxiety, depression, loss and bereavement, feelings of isolation, low self-esteem, difficult family situations, relationship issues, drug addiction, domestic violence, sexual abuse, anger management and self-harm.
I work with adults, couples, children and adolescents and my practice is situated on the Somerset Levels, between Yeovil, Taunton and Langport . There is parking and disabled access to the counselling room.
I know how important it is to choose the right counsellor for you; I therefore offer a free initial telephone or face to face consultation, so we can talk and learn a little about each other.
