About me

Hello, I’m Jane, a BACP-registered counsellor based in Carshalton, South London.

Welcome to Still Human Counselling. If you are experiencing emotional difficulties, perhaps as the result of bereavement, the end of a relationship, illness, redundancy, family problems, domestic abuse, identity issues, anxiety or depression, I can help.

You may be looking for a therapist for yourself or for someone you care about. Perhaps life is feeling hard at the moment and you are exploring options for support. I offer a confidential, non-judgemental space for you to explore and express whatever is on your mind or in your heart. This way, you can take steps toward change.

Counselling is a type of talking therapy where your needs are at the centre of the process. If you are in the grip of powerful sensations such as grief, shame, jealousy, anger, hopelessness, self-loathing, or if you are wondering whether life is worth living, get in touch. I can help with a wide range of difficulties, not just those listed below. When you are ready, text, email or call to arrange a free, face to face, assessment. I aim to respond within 24 hours.

What I can help with?
Abuse, Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Loss, Relationships.

Long-term face-to-face work, Short-term face-to-face work

What to expect
When you contact me by phone, text or email, we can schedule an assessment session. I aim to respond within 24 hours. This first session is free and will give us the chance to discuss how to work together. It will take up to an hour.
We can then schedule other sessions for counselling. These last 50 minutes and take place at the same time each week, as mutually agreed. We can choose either long-term or short-term work.

My way of working

I work by integrating two main approaches:

  • The Person-Centred approach which involves connecting with your authentic self, free from the judgements of others.
  • The Psychodynamic approach, which is based on theories of the unconscious mind and the coping mechanisms we all use to get through life.

At the heart of our work together will be a commitment to self-compassion. Developing a compassionate mind may take courage but offers a rewarding new way of relating to ourselves.

I won’t tell you what to feel or direct you, instead, we will work together to bring about change. If you are a trainee counsellor, and self-development is part of your journey, you are very welcome at Still Human.
