Jane Lam BACP Accredited Registered Psychotherapist
There are times in life when we might feel overwhelmed or low. Talking to a psychological therapist can help us move along to a more comfortable place. I am here to listen and journey with you; to provide a safe space. Together we can explore your circumstance and look at your potentials.
I am a BACP Accredited therapist. Currently, I work in primary care within the NHS. I have eighteen years experience as a therapist. I also had other professions; including internet programming, tutoring and occupational therapy. Hence, I have a range of other skills and experience to bring to my clinical work.
Having lived with polio all my life, I am adept in finding creative solutions. This hopeful outlook sustains everyday routines and my Chinese background brings another perspective to the work.
If you would like us to work together, you can be sure of safe and confidential sessions and calm and insightful attention.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
