About me

  • My name is Janis Sinclair, I am 60 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 Counsellor.

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

Suicidal thoughts
family problems
Marital issues
childhood sexual abuse
low self esteem
Panic attacks
self esteem
physical abuse
sexual abuse
verbal abuse
relationship problems
personal development
mental abuse
eating disorders and many more.

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