Jane Ivall MBACP (Accred) Counsellor and NCS (Accred) Supervisor
I know how hard it can be to take the first steps into therapy. Particularly when you have no idea what it is you want to work on or how to begin. Or maybe you know what you could be working on but if feels too tough to do that on your own. Finding the right therapist for you is important.
Sadly I don't have a magic wand or any answers for you, but I am an experienced, friendly and non judgemental therapist and can offer you a safe holding therapeutic relationship in which you can explore whatever it is you chose to.
I work with clients across a wide range of presenting issues. I often work with clients who have experienced traumas in their lives and are looking to live well and more fully now. I can also work short term with clients to support them with specific events and issues that they maybe experiencing in the here and now.
I work relationally as an integrative and humanistic counsellor. Together we agree on our shared way of working, which will enable you to get the most out of your counselling sessions and to develop skills and reflections that you can take beyond the therapy room.
I totally believe in recovery and in your ability to find your own ways forward with therapeutic support. As a qualified therapist I work alongside you to increase your felt sense of safety, your ability to emotionally self regulate and find personal stability so that you can explore whatever you wish to work on.
I work with young people, adults and couples.
I provide trauma informed clinical supervision for therapists and professionals.
