About me

Hi, I am Janine and I am an experienced psychotherapist/counsellor who works with adults and young people from my private therapy room at Hooton Business Centre which is on the Cheshire/Wirral border. I offer one to one therapy sessions to clients and couples counselling for couples as well as Critical Incident Stress Debriefing for organisations who's staff members have experienced a critical incident/traumatic event.

I can work with you if you are struggling with relationships? Therapy can help you  to work through issues with your partner and improve communication in a safe space. I also work with clients who struggle with anxiety, depression, self harm, suicidal ideation, intrusive thoughts, personality disorders, trauma, relationship issues, low self esteem or bullying issues. 

I have over 14 years experience of counselling and 30 years experience of working with adults and young people in education and community settings and I hold an enhanced certificate from the Disclosure Barring System so you can be reassured I am not barred from working with vulnerable adults and young people.

We work at your pace to explore why you have come to therapy and what you want to gain from sessions and put a working plan in place that works for you so that you can start to feel in control of your life and make the changes you want to make.

The therapeutic relationship is the most important thing when coming to therapy so I offer a safe, non judgemental and relaxed space where you are able to feel safe enough to share what is causing you distress.

I work with clients for either long and short-term face to face or online therapy. Short term therapy can be for 6 – 12 sessions and can focus on CBT techniques to give you the tools and strategies you can incorporate into your life. Long term therapy is over a longer period of time and uses psychodynamic therapy to explore your past experiences and help you to understand the influence of your past on your present behaviour and find new ways for you to change the behaviours that no longer benefit you. Psychodynamic therapy focuses on your unconscious (hidden from your awareness) or relationship patterns that evolve from childhood.

I use a mixture of different counselling modalities depending on your needs and this is something we will agree at our assessment. If you feel you require a certain modality then please let me know.

I specialise in working with survivors of narcissistic abuse after my own lived experience of this abuse through what I believe was an estranged parent, sibling and a previous ex-partner. Therapy can help you to recognise what you have experienced and support you in reclaiming your self-worth, self-esteem putting those boundaries in place and changing the messages you have received about yourself based on other peoples behaviours treatment to you. 

I am a member of the BACP and an accredited member of the NCPS and I work within their ethical standards and continue to work within their framework and code of ethics.  I have regular monthly supervision and continue to attend up to date training to enhance my counselling toolkit.

I currently have availability for new clients face to face, online via zoom or telephone.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

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.

NCPS
National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS)

The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
