Jane Watkins, BABCP Accredited Cognitive Psychotherapist
01634 711 193 / 07754 368541
I offer a service that I would be happy for my own loved ones to come to. I am a fully qualified and BABCP accredited Cognitive Psychotherapist (you maybe more familiar with this being called Cognitive Behaviour Therapy usually shortened to CBT).
I work with children, adolescents and adults (including couples) with about 10 years of experience using a variety of therapies including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), solution focused therapy, systemic therapy (family therapy) and clinical hypnotherapy
I offer sessions by Skype, so you can have sessions on the move, at work, on holiday, travelling for work or if you would simply like to have therapy with me but are not within travelling distance of my practice. This is also a great way to access therapy should you not be able to leave your home. Therapy is just as successful via Skype and is harnessing modern ways that we communicate with each other day to day.
What can I help with?
Anxiety, OCD, social anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, health anxiety, PTSD and trauma, difficulties in relationships, low self esteem and difficulties managing anger. I have also worked with young people and adults on the Autistic spectrum (ASD), ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), behavioural difficulties and school refusal. I offer social skills training for those on the Autistic Spectrum (ASD and Asperger's).
Young People and children:
I have worked in CAMHS (child and adolescent mental health services) with young people, children and their families and carers with a wide range of difficulties including self harm, depression, suicidal ideation, PTSD, bullying, low self esteem, difficulties making friends, stress, emotional and behavioural difficulties, ASD (Autism), ADHD, depression, OCD, trauma and anxiety. I have worked in various NHS and private sector services, including the national specialist children's unit (mental health), community adolescent crisis and neuro-developmental team.
When working in CAMHS it was identified that there are a large number of children and young people who struggle to respond to traditional parenting and boundary setting. This can lead to behavioural problems at home and or school. A parenting programme called Non Violent Resistance (NVR) has been developed that can really make a difference. I have worked with families in groups and also individually using NVR to help to restore balance at home and at school.
I have gained a lot of experience of working with adults in NHS IAPT services. I have worked with adults experiencing depression, OCD, PTSD (trauma), social anxiety, stress, victims of domestic violence, low self-esteem, GAD (generalised anxiety disorder), phobias, panic, anxiety, anger management difficulties and health anxiety. I have also worked with bereavement and physical health problems. I also work with those wanting to give up smoking using hypnotherapy.
I am trained in Cognitive Behaviour for Couples (CBTC).

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I am pleased to now be offering 8 week mindfulness courses.
I run an 8 week course based on MBCT (mindfulness based cognitive therapy) and MBSR (mindfulness based stress reduction).
Each week of the 8 week course is a 2 hour session. Groups will be approximately 12-15 people in size. This is a group based course as my experience is that learning together is the richest way to experience mindfulness. To get the most out of the course you will need to put some time aside each day to practice. There are other home practice things to do to further deepen your experience of mindfulness.
There is no religious teaching in this course. Mindfulness is about a way of being.
The 8 week group course costs £245 and includes:
CD of guided meditations
Pre course appointment (individual)
8 week group mindfulness course
A follow up group session following the completion of the 8 week course.
Please check my website for booking and further information.
