About me

Hi, I'm Jayne and I'm a BACP Registered Psychotherapist. I run my practice 'Magnolia Psychotherapy and Counselling' from a purpose-built garden room.  I am currently working both online and face to face.  

Are you feeling stuck, struggling to cope or feeling lost in your own head?  Life is challenging and it’s not uncommon to experience periods where we lose direction and meaning.   Perhaps your past experiences are standing in the way of you leading the life you want.  Talking your problems through with a professional can help you to make sense of things, enhance your self-understanding and help you to uncover unconscious beliefs that may have been holding you back.  

The way we think, relate and function in life is influenced by our experiences. These habitual learned patterns of being and relating can at times hold us back and be precursors to anxiety and depression.  Everyone in life has a unique set of experiences and circumstances and I offer a confidential and safe space to explore your way of thinking and relating.

How I work:

I am an integrative psychotherapist which means that I draw from a variety of theoretical models and psychotherapeutic philosophies,  which enables me to adapt my practice to meet client’s needs.  Above all, I believe that the therapeutic relationship is at the heart of the healing process, and I provide a safe non-judgemental supportive space for you to explore what's important to you.

Short term or long term?​

Counselling and psychotherapy can be set at a pace appropriate for each individual client and can be either long term or short term.

How can Psychotherapy help?

Exploring the reasons for your difficulties, gaining personal insights and connecting the dots, can be helpful in the path toward a calmer and more balanced life.  Talking to a therapist can help you to work through difficult emotions and I provide a safe containing space for you to explore your problems. 

People come to therapy with their own unique set of experiences, and I work on this basis of adapting my practice to suit your way of working.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
