Jayne Batten, Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist
It takes courage to ask for help.
As a skilled Integrative counsellor and psychotherapist I offer a safe, supportive and non-judgemental space to gently explore the difficulties that can cause us pain and suffering. In my practice, I use an individualised and integrative approach to empower my clients, develop skills and utilise the resources within to help face and resolve life’s challenges.
I work with a broad range of issues which include supporting personal development, cultural transitions, relationship issues, sexual issues, empowering change, life stages, coping skills and addictions, self-esteem, depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, bereavement, redundancy and work related problems, separation and divorce.
To set up an initial session to discuss the help you need and what you want to get out of counselling please send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also email me via the contact form on my website www.myintegrativetherapy.co.uk. I will be back in touch with you promptly. After our first session you can decide if you would like to set up further appointments.
Training, qualifications & experience
Originally from Canada, I obtained my BBA at the University of Iowa in the United States and my MSc Psychology at the University of Plymouth, where I have also completed my training to become a psychotherapist and counsellor.
I have worked within and across different cultures in different professional roles throughout my life and more recently with local organisations such as Women's Rape and Sexual Assault Centre, Cornwall Rape and Sexual Assault Centre and the Penhaligon Counselling Agency.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and a Graduate Member of the British Psychological Society.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Therapy is an investment in the overall quality of yours or your loved one's life. Dedication to the process is key to it's success.
My fee for a 50 minute therapy session is £40. I do maintain a limited number of places for people who are unable to pay the full cost of therapy.
Sessions can be held at my offices in Truro or the Lizard/Helston area, or on Skype.
Please cancel appointments 24 hours in advance. Otherwise, you will be charged the full session fee for the missed appointment. This applies to the first session as well.
Concessions offered for
Everyone is different and clients will respond in varying degrees to different therapeutic approaches. In my practice, drawing from relational person-centered, psychodynamic, emotion-focused and solution-focused theories, I endeavour to discover and apply which approach is most useful to you.
The focus of my work is to help my clients learn to trust themselves and realise their potential. It helps to identify and understand long held beliefs and assumptions that get in the way of our health, happiness and wellbeing. This discovery gives us permission to begin to question and evaluate the beliefs and assumptions that form barriers to our healthy self-development and happiness.
