Therapeutic Counselling

About me

Hi my name is Jane I am an Integrative Counsellor. This means the Counselling Course I studied in included learning different approaches and these are; the Humanistic Approach, Person Centred Approach, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Psychodynamic Counselling and I am able to use and adapt these interventions to meet the client’s needs. My philosophy and the core of my counselling belief, is each person is the master of their own destiny and given the right tools and environment can gain; the strength, confidence and empowerment to bring about the change they are looking for. The service I offer is in a warm, relaxed, safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment.

We all have times when we have to face challenges and juggle life; this can be a very stressful time. When we are feeling, sad, alone, stressed, anxious, depressed or having relationship worries these can seem overwhelming. You may feel unable to talk to friends or family for fear of being judged.

It's at times like these that we may need a helping hand, a safe place to talk, someone to talk to without feeling judged and someone who will listen to you. I offer a non-judgemental, confidential service in a safe setting, working with both long and short term clients.

Please feel free to visit my website for more information or give me a call on 07772325621

Member organisations

BACP

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.
