About me

Hello my name is Janine, thank you for taking time to visit my profile.

Your first steps towards counselling can seem quite daunting. I am committed to providing a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment where we can work together. I believe that no two people are the same. For this reason I work with a number of modalities to tailor to my clients individual wants and needs. This simply means i will tailor our sessions to the client, being mindful that one size does not fit all. Together we will work to explore your past experiences and relationships to discover how they have impacted the person you are today.

The relationship that we build in therapy is genuine and respectful. This is fundamental in building a secure base for you to achieve a positive outcome.

Therapy offers the opportunity for you to talk about the difficulties that may be causing you emotional distress. This will include exploring how childhood experiences might be influencing how you react or respond to situations.  I am passionate about my clients finding their way through difficulties they may be having either from their past or current situations.  This will lead to a deeper understanding of yourself and others and give you positive coping strategies.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and therefore i abide by the BACP's ethical framework.

I have an enhanced DBS check. (Disclosure & Barring service)

I have worked with an adult counselling service run by a charity. I also have experience of working with young people through a charity organisation linked to a youth club. I am committed to ongoing training and development taking numerous courses throughout the year. I attend a weekly supervision group to help me with the running of my practice.

If you feel like you need more information then please email or call me.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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.
