Jane Jason MBACP ADV(Dip)

How Therapy Can Help
Are you feeling sad, depressed and anxious? Are you wanting to change or to control something in your life? Are you panicking about a relationship, family issue or bereavement? Are you feeling pressure at work or home and trying to be ok when you feel you are not?
My approach is genuine and committed, to be a sounding board where you can unburden yourself, without judgement. I have a number of techniques to build self-belief, find acceptance, and look to new ways of relating with yourself and others. I work relationally, and look to the relationship in the room as providing a safe non judgmental space to heal and come to terms with adversity. To this end I believe in respecting and honouring your material and always working with what you bring, to be with you on your journey. I understand difficulty and I really empathise. It is my aim to always ensure my clients are at ease with myself, and feel I can hear whatever they may bring, and be able to support them at a pace they are comfortable, to take steps forward with their lives. Often the mirroring that can happen from being heard and understood in the therapy room facilitates you making sense of what it is you are going through. To gain clarity and insight where you feel stuck. Counselling offers you the chance to sound out emotions that are there for a reason. Through them you not only unburden yourself, but gain renewed insight into yourself and what you want.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I abide by their code of ethics. As well as holding a Certificate, Diploma and Advanced Diploma in Integrative Humanistic Counselling I also have certificates in Psychiatry, Psychopathology and Psychodynamics, Eating Disorders, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Time Limited therapy.
I have experience working with relationship issues stemming back to early childhood, as well as present ones. I can explore with you the past, as much as the here and now. Often the past will impact the present. Counselling can really help make unconscious thoughts and feelings, conscious, and to help build awareness, to reach ones full potential and build confidence. It also can really help you to learn to be kind to yourselves looking to your needs and wants. I work for a North London bereavement charity as a bereavement counsellor dealing with people suffering overwhelming losses and at a centre for counselling in Hammersmith and Fulham where the work is varied and reflective of an inner city borough. I have lots of experience of sitting with clients in deep distress and emotional pain and am resourceful and committed to working with a wide range of issues. My passionate areas of interest are bereavement, loss, struggles with relationships, feeling stuck and acceptance. I also can work with addictive patterns, eating disorders being one I hold an additional certificate in.
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Child related issues
- Domestic violence

Sessions are generally on a weekly basis and will be fifty minutes. I offer these session for £70, however, I do offer a limited number of lower cost sessions for clients able to book a twelve-week block booking, and I provide a lower cost individual session fee for students.
What To Expect In Your First Session
Our first meeting will be an opportunity to meet each other and discuss some of the issues you feel able to bring initially. It also gives you the chance to see if you feel comfortable to work with me. I can work to both a time-limited model and also a longer-term course of therapy. If you would like to contact me to discuss any aspects of the counselling and to find out more information you can reach me on 077994-10727. It is perfectly normal to feel anxious and nervous to start counselling and very often the fear of opening up is so great, that the alternative to feel stuck and remain despairing feels easier. It takes courage, and I sincerely understand this, but it will hopefully be the start of moving forward, healing and living a happier more fulfilling life.
