About me

  • My name is Janis Sinclair, I am 62 years old, married with two grown-up children. I am a fully trained qualified Counsellor & Psychotherapist completing my Postgraduate Diploma through Stirling University In 2011 Going onto qualify as a Counselling Supervisor with COSCA.

Since then I have gained extensive experience working with adults, children, couples and families. My experience of personal counselling over a period of 2 years brought about a huge self awareness and understanding leading me on the journey I now travel as a Psychotherapist/counsellor.

I firmly believe that counselling should offer a confidential and non-judgemental environment in which you can discuss various issues such as:

Suicidal thoughts
bipolar
family problems
Marital issues
career
childhood sexual abuse
children
depression
low self-esteem
Panic attacks
Stress
anxiety
self-esteem
physical abuse
sexual abuse
verbal abuse
trauma
relationship problems
personal development
bereavement
depression
mental abuse
loss
anger
eating disorders and many more.


Furthermore, I believe that the key to any successful counselling is actually choosing the right counsellor for YOU.
