Janine Murden BA, PGCE, Dip, MBACP
I'm Janine and I'm a qualified, experienced counsellor working in the heart of Epsom. I use an integrative approach in my counselling, which means that I will get to know you as an individual and find out what you'd like to get from counselling. We will then work together using a range of theoretical approaches to explore and examine your feelings and experiences- which may well change and evolve as you progress through your therapeutic journey.
I work with clients who may have experienced a range of emotional difficulties from family and relationship issues, depression, anxiety, loss, work or school related stress as well as identity issues relating to sexuality, gender, age and changed circumstance such as divorce or becoming a parent.
Although I use techniques and ideas from a range of theoretical origins, I mainly practise a humanistic (or person centred) approach. This means that I'm completely present with you during your sessions, listening with empathy and without judgement, empowering you to find your way through your difficulties. My aim is that you will grow in self awareness and become more confident and resilient.
As a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I adhere to a strict ethical framework and always work within my client's best interests. I offer a safe, comfortable and confidential environment with free parking, just a short walk from Epsom town centre.
