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.
I have studied a wide range of approaches which has enabled 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.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Where I work:
I am based in Alsager (near to Newcastle-under-Lyme, Stoke on Trent, Crewe, Nantwich, Staffordshire and Cheshire) and run my practice from a purpose-built garden room from my home. It’s a quiet, peaceful green space, where you can explore your problems in a safe confidential and comfortable environment. I also offer online counselling via Zoom.
