About me


I am Janet and I work under the name IdentifyU Counselling and Wellbeing.

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 lose our IDENTITY and forget how to FUNCTION. When we are free from stress we can MOVE through life with a greater FLOW and EASE.

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 to self-actualisation

The person-centred approach believes that humans have an innate tendency to find fulfilment of their own personal potentials. As a person-centred counsellor I hope to help you find self-healing and personal growth.

I respect inclusivity and have experience of supporting young adults with specific learning difficulties. I will facilitate clients who may have specific learning difficulties and provide inclusive ways of working appropriate to your individual learning needs.

How I work

I work with creative  techniques helping you to find your own path raising awareness and facilitating CHANGE helping you on your journey to JUST BEING YOU.

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 and  coaching 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.

I also offer individual tutoring for trainee counsellors:

  • Support with academic writing
  • Academic referencing
  • Presentation skills

I work in private therapy rooms in St Helens  which are accessible and informal 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 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.

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.

Registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psycotherapy


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.
