Jane Rose - MBACP Accredited - Dip Integrative Counselling & CBT.
I am an ‘Integrative’ Therapeutic Counsellor – which means I have experience of a wide range of therapeutic theories and techniques, which I use in a flexible way according to your needs. I aim to create a safe space help you explore whatever struggles and difficulties you may be facing & also seek to give you emotional support as you go through that process. I understand that life is complicated so have an accepting, empathic and supportive approach and will work with you to help manage and work through your concerns.
I do know how hard it can be to find the right counsellor, so I hope the information I provide here will help you decide if I am right for you.
I worked as a Registered Nurse for over 30 years in hospital, community and school settings which meant that I encountered the richness & complexity of life experiences throughout all stages of life. I decided to retrain as a counsellor to focus on the emotional aspect of health but am fully aware that as human beings we are body, soul and spirit and as such, all aspects of our lives are entwined and impact on the other. Consequently my approach to counselling seeks to integrate emotional, physical and spiritual understanding and I am happy to explore faith in a significant way if desired, with the emphasis and extent varying according to the individual.
I offer individual adults a professional & compassionate service in a safe, private environment with confidential boundaries. My experience includes clients who have struggled with the hits of life including areas such as anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, family struggles, loss, trauma, bereavement and low self esteem.
My ‘Integrative’ counselling process may involve
talking about your past & childhood experiences and considering how they may be impacting your life now. This is not about apportioning "blame' but about seeking to understand how your past experiences may be contributing to your current difficulties. Often the things we are unaware of have power over us, so making sense of your past and becoming aware of what you may have previously been unaware of, can empower you to make newly informed choices that help you move towards the change you are looking for.
focusing on the "here and now" of your current relationships or difficulties and exploring different perspectives and possible solutions.
using Cognitive Behavioural Techniques (CBT) which look at the link between your thought processes and beliefs that impact your feelings and behaviours. This is a highly effective way to bring about change, by becoming aware of previously unknown & unacknowledged thinking patterns you can create new patterns of thinking and behaving that change behaviour and feelings.
using creative tools and resources to help explore and uncover difficulties that may be hard for you to express in words.
I am based in a quiet, reflective therapy room in Bradford on Avon - the Bath side of town - which is easily accessible by car with plenty of free onsite parking.
