Jane Maxfield (JLM Counselling) - MBACP Registered
I am a general counsellor. I also specialise in pre and post bereavement counselling for adults and children.
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 have 39 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 - 60 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 - 60 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 – 50 - 60 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 - 60 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 50 - 60 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.

Feedback from clients:
‘When I first saw Jane I was at a real low point. Jane said the first session would be tough and it definitely was but afterwards I felt an immediate change for the better. Just a few visits later I was back to myself again. Thanks to Jane’
‘Jane is fantastic. Having suffered with anxiety all my life, I have been offered counselling numerous times before, but being sceptical always turned it down. On going through an extremely stressful and emotional time in my life I found and contacted Jane for help and I’m so glad I did. She is so welcoming and so easy to talk to, Jane got me through a tough time and made me a better person. Thank you, Jane.’
'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.'
'Thank you so much for all your help, support and kindness over the last 9 months. You’re amazing’
‘Thank you for your kindness and support and listening over the last 2 years’
‘Jane is amazing, she helped me through the most difficult time in my life, her kindness, understanding and support will always remain with me. I thoroughly recommend, if you are struggling in any area of your life seek help, it has changed my life and I'm such a different person to what I was prior to counselling. Thank you Jane’
