I am currently offering telephone  appointments and concessions for key workers and low income groups.

Hi

I'm Janet and I work under the name IdentifyU Counselling and Wellbeing.

I work in private therapy rooms in St Helens  and Prescot which are accessible, friendly and welcoming offering a confidential safe space where I can support you with any issues which might be preventing you from moving forward in life.

I am a fully qualified Person Centred Counsellor, Coach and trainer offering a gentle creative approach to support you in overcoming difficulties and finding yourself again. I am interested in working with identity... how we can lose and find it and the principles of image and how we see ourselves.

When we are stressed and anxious we can feel lost , afraid and confused. I am here to help you understand and overcome your feelings of anxiety

My work with you as a Counsellor

I use the  person-centred approach to facilitate you in finding what is best for your personal growth. I will allow you to explore your own strengths and personal power by supporting your journey

I can help you find ways to manage your anxiety and to quieten your mind from overthinking

I respect inclusivity and have experience of supporting young adults with specific learning difficulties : ADHD, Aspergers, ASC, Dyslexia

I will provide inclusive ways of working appropriate to your individual processes

I am warm and empathic and offer therapy in a non–judgemental, understanding manner respecting your individuality and autonomy. I will work with you to identify barriers and blocks which may be stopping you on your journey to “Being You”. I hope to help you understand yourself and your feelings with a gentle approach.

I am a registered member of British Association for Counselling and Psycotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their ethical framework and principles respecting client autonomy at all times.

I offer face to face counselling  sessions which are an hour long and based around your needs. We will work together respecting your individual needs in a safe environment.

There is no limitation on the amount of sessions you have and we work together until you feel ready to move forward

Group Counselling

I also offer group counselling sessions for groups of up to six people. Group work is confidential and a group contract is drawn up before we can work together. This is in place to protect your confidentiality

I offer wellbeing group support: including weight loss management, menopause, confidence building and managing anxieties. Group Support is available in St Helens and Prescot

My work with you as a  Coach

I can motivate and encourage you to recognize that by making healthy choices you can make POSITIVITY your goal with your mental, physical, and emotional health.

  • Do you struggle to keep a calm and positive mindset?
  • Are you always low on energy and motivation?
  • Do you struggle with work-life balance?
  • Do you find it difficult to make your health a priority?
  • Do you find it difficult to relax?
  • Do you want to make healthy changes to your lifestyle?
  • Do you struggle with self-discipline?

Make sense to you? Can you recognise yourself in the statements? if this is a YES then we can work together to keep you on track for the healthy life you deserve. My coaching sessions are an hour long and we can work together with you deciding on how you would like to move forward.

What next?

It can be difficult to acknowledge we need help and I know you may be struggling with your feelings of uncertainty but I want you to know I am here to support you from our first meeting and throughout your sessions ensuring your confidentiality is respected at all times.

Please contact me if you feel I can help you on your journey to re-connect with yourself again.

Please contact me to arrange an appointment which is suitable for you by phone, text or email.

I will respond to you promptly to arrange an appointment.

Experience

During my counselling experience I have supported clients of different ages and cultural backgrounds ranging from 16-60 who have struggled to overcome problems in their lives which have affected their wellbeing. My experience includes working with self-harm, anxiety, confidence issues, self-image, eating disorders, abuse and addictions. I have supported clients in finding the first steps forward on a journey to identifying themselves again after experiencing negative events in life. Clients have come to me from a dark place and told me they have felt lighter and more at ease with life after sharing their innermost feelings in a safe place.

My Coaching experience includes supporting clients with social anxiety, depression, low self esteem who have needed motivation in gaining confidence and regaining balance. I have coached university students with assigments, dissertations and time mangement.
