About me

Hi my name is Jan and I am an experienced, well-qualified CBT therapist and counsellor. At times when life is stressful we can feel anxious and depressed and find ways of coping which may feel comforting short term but possibly not so helpful in the long run. These behaviours can lead to consequences for ourselves and affect our relationships.
Working together in a respectful and compassionate environment, we can talk things through to gain a shared understanding of what is going on for you, break the problem down using the CBT model and then begin to figure out what needs to change.

CBT is a talking therapy with a practical approach and can be successfully applied to many problems. If you wish to discuss whether CBT is the right way forward for you, I would be happy to do so with an initial telephone call free of charge.

What I can help with:

Abuse, Anxiety, Childhood Related Issues, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME, Depression, Health Issues, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Worry, Obsessions, OCD, Panic Attacks, Perfectionism, Phobias, Post-Traumatic Stress, Redundancy, Relationship Problems, Low Self Esteem, Self Harm, Stress, Trauma, Women's Issues, Work Related Stress.

Talking really does help.

Training, qualifications & experience

2011 Post Graduate Diploma in Evidence Based Psychological Therapy.
2006 Certificate in Couples Therapy
2002 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
1985 Intensive Care Nursing Certificate
1981 Registered Nurse

I have over 17 years experience of working as a counsellor and CBT therapist within the NHS and in private practice. Having previously worked as a Registered Nurse for 12 years, I have a broad knowledge of medical conditions.

Over time, I have developed a special interest in self-esteem. Low self-esteem can cause us to have negative opinions of ourselves and worry excessively about what others might think of us. As such it can affect our whole lives. If you are self-critical, find it difficult to accept praise or are often left feeling bad about yourself, you may have low self-esteem and could benefit from CBT.

Mindfulness and Compassion Focused Therapy are third wave CBT therapies and are proving highly effective in helping people manage psychological problems. Over the last few years, I have received  training in both of these approaches and if it feels right, can weave aspects into therapy.

Member organisations

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BABCP

The BABCP is the lead organisation for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in the UK.

Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the practice, theory or development of CBT. BABCP also provides accreditation for CBT therapists.

BABCP accredited members adhere to the Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics in the Practice of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies, and are willing to be scrutinised in this adherence as required.

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

The therapy room is upstairs on the first floor.
