I'm Janet and I work under the name IdentifyU Counselling and Wellbeing.
I work in private therapy rooms in St Helens 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 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 provide inclusive ways of working appropriate to your individual learning needs.
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.
My work with you as a Coach
As your coach I can support you from a holistic perspective helping you to thrive emotionally and physically.
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.
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.

I will respond to you promptly to arrange an appointment.
