Jane Wishart Registered MBACP, Dip Intergrative Psychotherapy, Dip TA Practice
I am a qualified and experienced counsellor, working in private practice for 14 years. I offer a free 30 minute consultation, to understand what brings you to therapy and for us to decide if I am the right therapist to work with you.
Life brings challenges to us all at times and often the support of our friends and family is not enough to help us move through these life events. You may be feeling anxious, suffering panic attacks, depression or it could be that issues from your childhood or relationship difficulties impact on your day to day life. At these times working with a professional counsellor can enable us to explore and make meaning of our experiences, noticing patterns of behaviour, thoughts and feelings that are limiting our lives or causing distress. With this understanding real change can be made enabling you to live a full and vibrant life.
It is well evidenced that the therapeutic relationship, between client and therapist is at the heart of successful therapeutic change. I work in a manner that is respectful, confidential, supportive and gently challenging . My training and experience allows me to work in an integrative manner, using a range of theoretical frameworks in a thoughtful and considered approach for each individual client.
I offer short term counselling and longer term psychotherapy for individuals face to face and online , the issues that I work with include :
Anxiety and panic attacks
Low self esteem
Work related stress
Feeling like something is not quite ‘right’
Loss and bereavement

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.
