Jane Titterton (Counselling Psychologist, Reg. HCPC, MA, BA Psych (Hons)
I am a Counselling Psychologist with over 15 years experience. I am empathic, calm and non-judgemental. I work in a person-centred way, led by my client’s experience to empower their recovery and alleviate distress.
I am a woman of colour with experience in working with cultural identity issues.
I have worked in higher education institutions (universities), adult mental health, employment, and high schools. I have over 8 years experience counselling clients online using video call technology (Skype, Zoom or VSee).
The main themes of the person-centred approach are unconditional positive regard, empathy and honesty. These are central to my way of working as a counsellor to develop a connection with my clients.
I am particularly interested in how clients experience the world. I aim to help clients understand what has happened to them and how that affects them now. This can involve looking at how what we feel is experienced physically in our bodies and doing mindfulness work.
Please note that I currently offer online video call counselling appointments only.

What is online video call counselling?
This is counselling using audio (microphone) and visual (webcam) technology over the internet. Video calls are placed using Skype, Zoom or VSee which can easily be downloaded to your computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
There are similarities to in-person/face-to-face counselling in that it happens in real-time and you can see your counsellor’s face and shoulders. It is different to traditional in-person counselling as it can take place in the comfort of your own home or private space. It can be a convenient and affordable way to access counselling.
There are some guidelines for online video counselling which I send to clients prior to our first appointment. The main points are that you are in a quiet and confidential space for your counselling sessions, where you cannot be interrupted or overheard. You may wish to take some time prior to our online video call counselling session to gather your thoughts and think about what you wish to discuss. You may also wish to allow some time after your video call counselling appointment to reflect on what has been discussed and note any feelings that you may have or thoughts to pick up on for next time.
I am UK based though I am able to work online with clients based in some other countries (legislation dependent). My registration as a psychologist in Australia uniquely places me a professional position to work with clients based in that region.
To make an appointment:
Please contact me on Tel: 079 2846 7307 or Email: email@example.com to arrange an initial online video call consultation. I will aim to get back to you within 48 hours.
An initial consultation is an opportunity for you to talk about why you have sought out counselling and how these issues have been affecting you. You may want to think about what you hope to gain from counselling or the type of help or support you are looking for.
After our initial consultation, if you are willing to proceed with further sessions of online video call counselling we will arrange these.
