Hi I'm Jane. I'm an integrative counsellor with six years experience working with individuals, couples and teenagers.
My aim is to help you bring more of a sense of peace into your life which in turn, can help you to achieve more of the things you want. If you're feeling anxious, depressed, lost, confused, angry or bereaved it can be extremely helpful to have someone impartial to talk through your issues with. I offer a safe, warm hearted and confidential space in which I support you in making sense of your feelings, and finding new ways of managing them.
Maybe this is your first step into counselling or perhaps you've had some counselling before and you're seeking to try a different approach. The integrative counselling model that I'm trained in combines psychodynamic and person centred approaches - This basically means we explore current life difficulties, noticing links with past traumas where appropriate. We go at whatever pace you feel safe with and tailor the sessions to suit your needs using a variety of therapeutic tools, which we can discuss as we go along.
I offer long or short term arrangements and a free, no obligation telephone consultation which gives you the opportunity to ask questions or share some of your story before we decide to go ahead and work together. Please feel free to send me a text message or an email to arrange this.
I charge £45 per 50 minute session or £35 for counselling students. Couples are charged at £55. If you feel you would like to try techniques such as hypnotherapy, which can be very powerful for releasing trauma and lessening the effects of painful memories, we can arrange longer sessions as needed. I work from Maidstone Community Support Centre most weekday evenings. We can discuss availability either over the phone or via email.
I'm fully insured and a member of the BACP. This means I abide by their code of ethics and professional standards, and undergo regular supervision to ensure my practice receives the best informed care..
I look forward to hearing from you.
