Jane Palmer Adv Counsellor, Adv Couns Children/YoungPeople,Trauma Practitioner
'How are you?’ How often do you reply truthfully to others and to yourself?
Therapy is a journey of change, recognising the truth of how you really feel in a supportive, confidential, non-judgmental environment, empowering you to find your own voice, confidence, knowledge and awareness. Reconnecting with these enables you to move forward. Allow yourself regular time in a peaceful space away from the demands of life to talk in private with someone who is objective and impartial. As an integrative, person centred psychotherapist you are the complete focus, I use a flexible approach to fit your needs.
I have over 20yrs experience working with children and young people. I provide a relaxed and safe environment and work creatively and holistically exploring different ways of expression that talking doesn't always reach, this is effective for both adults and young people alike.
My experience includes anxiety, depression, identity, historical & lived trauma and abuse, relationship issues, bereavement, panic & stress, eating disorders, self-harm, PTSD, family dynamics, loss of purpose among many other issues.
I also run therapeutic retreats in Cornwall, workshops for therapists, and wellbeing workshops & 1:1 support in the workplace.
