Jane Frajbis - Counsellor (Reg MBACP) / Psychotherapist / Supervisor
Feeling lost? Broken? Confused? Anxious or Depressed? Without hope? Life not making sense? Need to talk? …. Someone to listen?
Restoration Counselling offers a safe, confidential space to talk through your concerns with a trained, professional Counsellor. A place to heal, rebuild, restore, and become all you were meant to be.
I work from home in private practice, providing short-term Counselling & longer-term Psychotherapy for a broad range of issues, including: Abuse, Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Despair, Difficulties after Abortion, Divorce, Grief, Low Self-Confidence/Low Self-Esteem, Loneliness, Loss, Miscarriage, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Pregnancy-related issues, Relationship problems, Sadness, Separation, Stillbirth, Stress, Trauma.
I trained as an Integrative Counsellor & Psychotherapist at Heartwood Institute of Counselling & Psychotherapy in Dartington, Devon. I believe each person to be uniquely individual, having differing thoughts, feelings and responses to life experiences.
I work using integrative approaches and interventions from Gestalt theory, Person-Centred, Body Process, Inner Child and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). I also offer a range of creative counselling resources.
As a qualified Supervisor, I provide person-centred Supervision for qualified and trainee Counsellors.

I offer a caring, compassionate, confidential, safe space for you to talk about whatever is troubling you. I'm sensitive, respectful and non-judgmental, and believe no issue or problem is too small or trivial for counselling.
I appreciate it can take a lot of courage to start counselling, or even to make initial contact. It also takes time to build up safety and trust. If it's difficult to share or to put feelings into words, I also offer creative ways of working that may help you express your thoughts and feelings safely.
Although I provide counselling for a variety of issues, I have specific interest and experience in working with bereavement, loss, abuse and trauma.
