About me

Hello and welcome.

I'm Jane, and I offer you the opportunity to talk through your problems.

Sometimes we need some space and time for ourselves. To be able to take stock, discover, understand and heal. By exploring this site you are taking the first step towards understanding more about yourself and feeling better.

We all have problems in life and sometimes we need help. It's good to talk and most importantly, I will listen without judgment or criticism. I offer support and a safe space to examine problems that may be causing you distress or unease.

Who I work with.

I work with Adults and Young People in NHS Primary Care settings, College, Young Devon and Private Practice. I also offer counselling and mentoring for young people (Especially at this time around A levels and starting Uni).

I have experience working with medics and veterinary professionals relating to work based, clinical and professional issues. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, OCD, grief, anger, self esteem, self harm or suicidal thoughts.

What can you expect from counselling.

Counselling is a talking therapy that offers support for distress, life changes and mental health. Psychotherapy works at a deeper and more complex level. I will help to discover what is right for you and aid you in that path. Counselling does not tell you what to do, it supports and guides you to the right pathway for you.

We can investigate and understand any thoughts, feelings and behaviours that may be causing you distress or dis-ease. The aim of counselling is to help you to accept, resolve and move on and to become aware of things that are stopping you from doing this. I will support you while you find the answers you need.

Mentoring.

I work with Young People and mentoring is being a professional friend. It's confidential and a safe space to talk. I help and guide Young People when they are going through difficult or confusing times. It's not counselling it's someone to talk to who is neutral and holds a safe space for the young adult.

Face to face, Zoom and telephone appointments can be made so that you don't need to travel. I welcome any questions, please get in touch.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I have an interest in the affect of Walk and Talk therapy, how walking and connecting in the open can add value to the counselling.

I am also keen to develop my interest in the use of companion animals in the sessions to enhance the therapeutic experience.
