Janine Evett, DipCouns, MBACP. Counsellor.
How I can help
I believe everyone deserves to feel heard, understood and valued. I can offer a non-judgemental, supportive and confidential space to enable your growth and healing. I aim to provide a calm, friendly yet professional style, which allows you to talk freely at your own pace and in your own way. As you begin to unravel your problem, we can explore your next steps towards feeling better, more in control and more optimistic about your future.
The first session
It is common to feel apprehensive about the first session, and this is perfectly understandable. Clients often find that after the first session, they feel much less anxious as they have a better idea about what to expect and of how counselling can help. I aim to guide you into the process to help you get the most from your counselling experience every step of the way.
If after your initial 30 minute consultation you decide to proceed with counselling, then in your first session I will encourage you to outline your main concerns and the focus of your counselling journey. We will also agree a number of sessions to begin with, however this is not set in stone, and will be periodically reviewed so that it ends when you are ready.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified integrative therapist, member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and studying towards a BSc Psychology degree.
My voluntary and private practice with adults has seen me work with a variety of people with different mental health issues and life problems.
I have recently undergone training for walk and talk therapy, which combines traditional talking therapy with ecotherapy principles.
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.
