Jane Hughes (Reg MBACP)
I am a psychotherapist and counsellor based in Manchester city centre. My therapeutic approach combines Person-Centred Counselling with Transactional Analysis psychotherapy. Put simply, this means you are always in charge, and you set your own boundaries. Using Transactional Analysis means we have some tools to analyse your situation in greater depth, and help put you in control of your life. I may also use some CBT techniques.
I have an open and non-judgemental approach to all my clients. I don't much like labelling people and I'm more interested in getting to know you as an individual than in any kind of medical diagnosis. I offer unconditional support and a safe space where you can share your feelings and tell your story. I also have an interest in creative writing for mental health.
I had a career in publishing before starting my own business. I know about the pressures of management and the highs and lows of self-employment. I've seen my share of life events. And like many good counsellors, I only discovered the benefits of 'talking therapies' by experiencing them myself.
Where do we go from here? An initial meeting is the best way to get to know each other, talk things through and decide if we want to do more work together. Sessions are 50 minutes long, just the two of us, and strictly confidential. We can arrange regular appointments or flexible sessions to suit your lifestyle and commitments. I can offer appointments on weekdays, at most times of day including lunch hours, evenings and early mornings, and my office is easy to find on Deansgate in Manchester city centre. I also offer Skype sessions for established clients.
