About me

Hello, I'm Jane.  Are you feeling anxious, stuck or a bit overwhelmed?  I offer the time to talk in confidence about whatever is troubling you and what you would like to change.  I won't judge or tell you what to do, but will listen and help you make sense of what is happening and work out what's right for you.  We can focus on a specific situation or dig a bit deeper if you think it's time to address a longer term issue.  Please get in touch - I would like to help.

How counselling can help?

It can help to take the time to talk.  Counselling offers the opportunity to take some time for yourself to allow you to focus on what's going wrong (and right) and try to work out what to do.  Sometimes, it can just provide a bit of breathing space.  Most of the time we can work things out for ourselves, but when we are dealing with too much at once, feeling isolated, or just feeling worn down it can help to have someone impartial, interested and patient at your side.  I know from my own experience how valuable it can be and am committed to providing that space and time for my clients.

What can I offer?

I offer a no charge and no obligation 20 minute meeting or call to say hello and see if working together feels right for you at the moment. I will be happy to answer any questions you have about what might be involved.

I offer a single session to address a specific issue, as well as short term and long term working – we can discuss what you have in mind and then keep our work under review as we go along.

Online or outdoors?

Travelling to see a counsellor may be inconvenient or simply not an option for lots of reasons, particularly at the moment.  Meeting online offers a safe, secure, confidential space without you leaving home - no travel, no masks and no social distancing.  You are very welcome to contact me to arrange a fee initial online meeting to see if it feels right for you.  I am a member of the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online and adhere to its Code of Ethics.

If you would prefer to get outside into the fresh air, we can walk along the beach at North Berwick and talk as we go.   If this appeals to you, please get in touch and we can arrange a short walk to say hello and see if it works for you. 

A little about me

Before training to be a counsellor I practiced as an employment lawyer for over 20 years. My experience has given me insight into the stresses arising from work, change and dealing with conflict.  I always tried to be practical and pragmatic in my approach and bring that with me to my work now - I want to understand what is troubling you and to help you move forward.  Alongside my private practice I am a volunteer counsellor in Edinburgh.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
