Jane Gillett, MBACP
Life can be difficult sometimes and it may not always feel appropriate to speak with friends, family or loved ones about the way we are feeling or the things we may be thinking. Often we may be worried that the people we are closest to may be shocked by these feelings and thoughts.
Sometimes seeking support through a professional counsellor is beneficial to help you start to make sense of how you are feeling. The counselling relationship offers a safe space for you to start to explore and understand your thoughts and feelings.
I can work with you on a number of life problems in a way that suits your needs. I will help you become more in touch and aware of feelings, thoughts and barriers in your life.
I believe that the counselling relationship is important and work in a way that is beneficial to helping you become more self-aware, authentic and able to move forward in your life.
I became a counsellor due to working with teenagers in a school environment. I observed how a young person could make positive changes in their lives by having someone they could talk to and feel heard.
I offer a service that suits you, being an integrative counsellor enables me to work with adults, children and young people in a more holistic way.
My work with adults is based around your needs and what is troubling you at this present time but also helping you to explore the past and how this may have impacted upon your present day.
My work with children and young people is structured around a mixture of play and talking therapy. I am also trained in Mindfulness practices and find that these help my younger clients, especially with anxiety. Again my work is tailored to suit that child or young person.
I have worked with a number of young people around anxiety, depression and stress, especially around examination time. Young people are under an enormous amount of pressure at school to achieve well. Along with the pressure of peers, social media and sometimes family. The therapy room enables them to feel safe and secure to start to explore who they are and how they can manage their sometimes difficult feelings and emotions.
I aim to provide an equal relationship with all of my clients regardless of age or circumstances.
I practice in a client led way, our counselling time together will be about what you bring to the sessions.
I work with adults, children and young people.
