Jane Manners MBACP
Saying hello, is the first step in helping yourself, so let me introduce myself.
My background is Education, which has helped me to progress into counselling. My passion to enable people to re-connect with themselves. Following a dip in my own life gave me the drive to re-train as a fully qualified Counsellor.
Having found that some people struggle to connect with topics that they want to explore, I have found through personal experience that given time and space can help.
I have volunteered for both MIND and Y.I.S. which are both based in Milton Keynes and RVT based in Bedford.
I hold a portable D.B.S, which enables me to work with both Children and young Adults wherever they feel more at ease.

As a counselling practitioner, my aim is to enable you as an individual to gain confidence to help you to cope with life's unexpected twists and turns. This will be done through offering you a safe environment to process your thoughts in a caring and non-judgemental way. Talking therapies has many benefits and as a person centred counsellor, using the core conditions of empathy, congruency and unconditional positive regard, I believe by offering you the opportunity through a developing therapeutic relationship, together we can explore how counselling can help.
I have regular supervision to ensure that I am working ethically and to support both my personal and professional development.
Person-centred counselling is an non-directive approach allowing you with therapeutic support to find your way.It encourages a greater understanding of yourself through the growth of your own self-awareness, self-development and self expression, which in turn wil create increased self confidence and a clearer understanding of self.
The first step can be the most difficult, so to make it easier you can send me a text, drop me an email or ring me, together we can decide on a suitable way forward for you.
