Janelle Grant BA (Hons) Counselling, DipHE. MBACP
My aim as a counsellor is to create a warm, empathic space within which issues and difficulties can be explored in confidence. I believe one of the key values of counselling lies in giving time and understanding to those aspects of our lives when we may feel pushed beyond our limits. Forming a relationship that reflects the individual nature of a client’s personality and allowing them to work at their own pace to help them find meaning, is the main priority in my work.
Although my training includes a range of psychodynamic and humanistic approaches, I work according to the needs, lifestyle and culture of the individual, rather than imposing a specific technique. What guides my work more than anything is my belief in the importance of the relationship between client and counsellor, which needs to be based on trust, mutual respect and the desire to work in partnership. I have experience of working with clients from a range of different cultures and welcome cultural difference.
My private practice is located in the centre of Epsom, where I work with adults and young people. I also work with children and teenagers, offering counselling in primary schools and secondary higher education facilities. I also dedicate my time working for a large charitable counselling organisation in London.
People seek counselling for many different reasons. You may have experienced a traumatic event in your life, such as a bereavement that has left you feeling lonely and anxious. You may feel depressed and not know why, or maybe you are just having difficulty coping with a past event and you just need someone to talk to.
