About me

I am a general counsellor

What is counselling?

Counselling offers you a safe, confidential place to talk about your life and anything that may be confusing, painful or uncomfortable.

I also specialise in pre and post bereavement counselling for adults and children. I have 37 years experience as a registered nurse and 13 years experience working in a hospice with patients who are approaching the end of their life and supporting families through their grief journey.

Pre bereavement counselling:

Person who is ill – 50 minute sessions.

I provide emotional support to someone who has been diagnosed with a life limiting illness. During the session I will help the person to explore any anxieties, concerns or worries they may have which can also include planning and giving advice for end of life care.

Adults – 50 minute sessions

I provide emotional support to people caring for someone who has a life limiting illness, giving them the opportunity to talk about their thoughts and feelings at this difficult time.

Children – 40–50 minute sessions

I can give advice to adults on how to talk to a child about someone who has a life limiting illness.

I can also see children to work with them to help them deal with someone close to them who is approaching end of life.

Post bereavement counselling:

Adults – 50 minute sessions

Following the death of someone close to them a person can feel it would be helpful to talk to someone who doesn’t know them. With post bereavement counselling you are given the time, in a confidential and non-judgemental environment, to talk about how you are feeling at this sad time. Some people need 2-3 sessions whilst others need many more. Grieving is very much an individual situation and each person will deal with their grief differently.

Children 40-50 minute sessions

I can provide bereavement support advice for adults who have a child who has had a bereavement.

I can also see children and work with them to explore their reaction to the death of someone close to them.

Where can you find me?

I have a counselling room in MK41 area where parking is available.

Feedback from clients:

'After the loss of my mum, Jane has helped me to believe in a future. Jane has literally picked me up and put me back together again. We have laughed and cried together as she has guided me through a journey I would never have been able to make on my own. She has supported me every step of the way. She has listened to all the crazy stuff. Jane has a natural gift to connect with people and I know she will continue to help others. I feel extremely lucky to have met such a wonderful, honest person.'
