Janine Kane MA Integrative Psychotherapist (1999) and Supervisor
I believe in the tenacity of the human spirit to heal itself and I am passionate about offering a space for you to come - just as you are - and together we will support and nurture that process.
Sometimes the approach we use to survive a difficult experience in childhood or a traumatic incident can become locked in our system and long after the difficulty has passed we continue to use this approach, which can now limit us. Instead of thriving, we are locked in surviving. Psychotherapy can unlock these patterns and help us refocus.
My experience has been that people come and feel safe to share what is on their minds, in their hearts, their bodies and in their soul. It is a process that can take time and I encourage you to approach whatever you bring with a spirit of kindness and curiosity towards yourself as to how you came to be as you are now. Sometimes your response will be quick, surprising and releasing, at other times there is a growing realisation of piecing bits together to create a unified story which will feel right to you.
Whatever is troubling you, or someone you care about, is important or you wouldn't be looking at this website. Sometimes talking with someone who is not directly involved gives you a greater freedom to risk being open to all of your experiences and can bring you a different perspective and new way of thinking/feeling/behaving about your troubles.
I can help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself so you can make the changes you would like. I do this through active listening, reflection and sharing thoughts that arise to support our work together. I work in a collaborative way and welcome your feedback to enable the work to progress so that you receive what you need at your own pace.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have 20 year's experience of working 1:1 with adults in private practice and have worked for the emergency services and currently work as a student counsellor at a University.
I have completed several trainings to widen my knowledge and understanding of what it is to be fully human. I began with a 3 year psychodynamic training, progressed to a 5 year integrative training which synthesises many different approaches. I have completed a 5 year deep bodywork psychotherapy training which has given me a greater understanding of unconscious body processes and a sensitivity to work with early trauma which is often preverbal.
I completed a supervision training at the Minster Centre(129 hours of training) and work as an integrative supervisor with individuals
I have completed several shorter courses in parenting skills, CBT training, Coherence Therapy and Dance/movement therapy.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
Early trauma, at birth or when very young. There can be a "felt" sense in the body of something being wrong but it is difficult to find the words to communicate what it is.
I offer an initial consultation of 1.5 hours at a reduced fee for us to get to know each other and see if we choose to work together. Sometimes we need longer to make that decision.
If we say yes to one another I would then enter into a therapeutic relationship with you, using the skills and knowledge I have to be with you and listen to you with warmth and gentleness.
I offer short term and long term/opened work to suit your needs.
I work in Chichester close by the train and bus station and offer 50 minute weekly sessions at a cost of £55.
I have, on occasion, negotiated a reduction in fees in certain circumstances. Please ask.
Please feel free to contact me. I would be happy to talk with you on the phone about anything I have written.
