Jane Ross-Wheatley MBACP (Accred) Adv Diploma & Post Grad Diploma Counselling
I offer counselling to individuals - where you can explore in a non judgmental and safe environment whatever is troubling you. Sometimes problems can be difficult to solve on your own, but working through these issues within a caring and confidential space you are able to voice your fears, face your anxieties and feel emotionally supported. This type of acceptance helps you find greater understanding and helps you to move forward confidently. Giving yourself the space to identify what triggers uncomfortable feelings and what influences your behaviour can be life changing. Giving yourself this time helps you to become more grounded, to be able to think more clearly and increases your ability to find solutions.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am qualified humanistic integrative counsellor. The humanistic aspect relates to the model of psychotherapy studied. The various styles of counselling are effectively frameworks for emotional development and health. Humanistic counselling is concerned with helping you to become more whole, integrating all aspects of yourself, some of which may be suppressed or inhibited as a result of your life experiences.
As a Humanistic Integrative therapist I am able to integrate tools and ideas from different models of psychotherapy ie. CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), TA (Transactional Analysis) etc. This means the counselling fits you instead of you fitting the counselling style.
My core training is shown below, however I attend regular continued professional development to enhance my own personal and professional growth and attend regular supervision in accordance with the requirements of BACP Accreditation.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
