About me

Hi I am Jane,

I am passionate about mental health and understand the impact it can have on daily living. My experience is working with people struggling with depression, anxiety, domestic violence and various traumas. Sometimes people don't know what is bothering them but just know there is something wrong and that's ok.

Whatever brings you here today, that's ok and I hope you find what you are looking for here. If not why not give me a text, call or email to see if together we can uncover what is going to work for you. 

Life can leave us feeling “wounded”.

 At times life can feel confusing, difficult, painful, miserable, and so much more. In those moments we need to talk because holding it all in can be even more agonising.

What I offer

I work with adults to explore together how you relate to yourself and others, how you communicate, how you think and feel and act. I help you recognise and understand “what is going on for you” and I use a variety of theoretical approaches to accomplish this. Together we will uncover who you are inside so that you are more comfortable in your world. 

 I am non-judgemental, warm, compassionate, and honest and my priority is to keep you safe whilst you explore and experience your vulnerabilities. Together we will develop more of an understanding of you and what you are experiencing and create a life that feels right for you. 

I also work as part of a team, so if I am unable to see you right away, another counsellor will be able to. Part of the team work with couples who are struggling with their relationship issues. Couples counselling is for couples wanting to resolve difficulties, improve their relationship and recapture the happiness that existed between them when they first met. 

What I can help with

  •  Difficult life events – such as bereavement (losing someone close to you) or losing your job
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Upsetting or traumatic experiences, it could be a recent event or something that happened in your past
  •  Difficult emotions, such as grief, guilt, shame, sadness, confusion, anger and low elf-esteem
  • Depression and anxiety 
  • Addictions
  • Trauma
  • Stress
  • Anger management 
  • Couples counselling (with another colleague)
  • If you don't see what what's going for you, please get in touch

Change your Future

Gaining understanding and a different perspective on the life you currently have and the experiences you have been through can guide the way to transformation, changing your future. 

Let’s imagine your life the way you want together, and together carve a new way forward to the life you want. I am a compassionate, encouraging and caring person who will walk this journey with you. I will listen to you and accept you as you are and help you accept yourself.

 What to expect from Counselling with me
·      Offer you a safe space to talk to me so that you feel heard and understood and I wont judge you
·      Help you make sense of things and understand yourself better
·      Help you resolve complicated feelings, or find ways to live with them
·      Help you recognise unhelpful patterns in the way you think or act and find ways to change them (if you want to)

If you would like couples counselling, please get in touch and will arrange a call between you and a couples counsellor. 

The way I work
I am a humanistic counsellor and I offer a safe space for you to explore what's going on in your life. For the time we will be together, you will be able to say anything you need to, without fear of been judged, simply listening, supporting and being with you as you walk this journey. 

I am trauma focused and will use mindfulness and other therapies depending on your individual needs. 

Get in touch and see how I can support you.

Take the Time to Find a Good Match

I know it takes a lot of courage to walk into a counselling room, I will strive to create a confidential and safe place where you will feel comfortable sharing your hurts and difficulties. I appreciate, it's hard to be vulnerable in front of a new counsellor, I will be compassionate, encouraging and empathic as I help you find the words to what you are facing so we can get to the heart of your issue.

There may be some fears, there may be some tears, but it will be ok for us to laugh together if it feels right too. 

Lets Talk 

I invite you to have a 20 minutes talk on the phone or video call - free of charge - before arranging our first session together. 

This may help you get a sense of me, and whether you feel I would be a good fit for you.
