Hi, my name is Jane and thank you for taking time to view my profile. I am an experienced and qualified Person Centered Counsellor and I work with both adults and young people helping to provide a positive way forward. Life can at times bring many challenges and it can get to a point where navigation through it all can sometimes feel too overwhelming. You may feel low but don’t know why, or you could be finding it really difficult to manage a demanding situation your worries and anxiety seeming to dominate your everyday life. No matter what the reason for these feelings or the way in which they affect you, I aim to provide you with a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space to enable you to explore your issues.
I work in a person-centered way which means I won't advise you or tell you what to do, I believe that you are the expert at knowing what is best for yourself. I will endeavor to understand and listen to you without judgement helping you to explore your worries and issues enabling you to find a way forward.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), working to the their Ethical Framework for good practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy which makes sure that I work safely with you.
I offer fees at an affordable rate helping to make private counselling a more do-able option for those feeling they would like to access some support.
Training, qualifications & experience
FDa in Counselling
As a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor I have worked within several differing work environments. I have experience working with with a diverse range people who have suffered with a wide range of difficulties.

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.

Please feel free to give me a ring, we can then arrange a suitable time for us to meet for an initial consultation. This appointment gives us a chance to meet face to face, its a space for you to learn a little about how the counselling process works, ask any questions and get a feel for wether you think we could work together.
