Janie Biegun, PG. Dip. Psych; Adv. Dip. Counselling; MBACP
I am an experienced, qualified counsellor and I work with a wide range of issues.
I approach every client with warmth and respect and offer a safe, compassionate and non-judgemental space, within which I hope we can work together to explore whatever concerns you might bring.
These might be concerns arising from recent events, or long-standing issues that you may feel are preventing you from fully engaging in your life.
My approach to counselling draws on a range of therapeutic practices (Humanistic Integrative). Above all, I believe that an understanding and trusting relationship between the therapist and the client, is central to all successful therapeutic work. It is this relationship that lies at the centre of my practice.
As a registered member of BACP, I work within its ethical framework, ensuring confidentiality, respect and always holding my clients' best interests at heart.
Please call or contact me to arrange an initial session. At this session we can discuss what you would like to get out of counselling and whether you feel we could work together to achieve this. If you are happy to continue, we will set up a second session and continue to meet weekly as long as you feel that this arrangement works for you. If you are a student, unwaged or on low income, I am happy to offer a concessionary rate.
