Jayne Heron MBACP (Accredited)
My name's Jayne & I have a background in television - I was a Factual Entertainment Series Producer before I had my children, working for the BBC, ITV, Channel 5, independent production companies & digital networks. I also have a BA (Hons) in Politics.
Originally from Solihull, I've lived all over the UK (London, Birmingham & Glasgow) but I chose to raise my family in the South West with the warm weather and outdoor lifestyle. I especially love being in amongst nature in woodlands, on the beaches & the moors.
I specialize in anxiety and depression and Emotional Regulation.
My style of counselling is warm, informal and friendly and includes being:
- PERSON-CENTRED - I adjust my practice according to what you need. I also believe in you as a unique, valuable, worthwhile human being.
- SAFE, CONFIDENTIAL, NON-JUDGEMENTAL, SUPPORTIVE
- EMPATHIC - it's my job to walk in your shoes and see the world how you see it.
- IN PARTNERSHIP - we work together to achieve your goals
- TRAINED - I studied for a Certificate in Counselling and then a BACP Accredited Level 4 Advanced Diploma at the Iron Mill College in Exeter for 2 years, undergoing 40 hours of my own personal therapy and spending over 150 hours in placement.
I am an Accredited Member of the BACP and abide by their Ethical Framework. BACP Accreditation aims to recognise the achievement of high standards of knowledge, experience and development in counselling and psychotherapy.

Accreditation with the BACP
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Monday to Friday daytime and evenings in person and via WhatsApp Video or Zoom
Most people are nervous at their first session, but during this meeting you can get to know a little bit about me and how I work and I can start to understand the problems you'd like to bring to therapy. There is no obligation to commit to therapy if it doesn't feel right, so you've got nothing to lose but one hour of your time.
Counselling is only effective if you like your Counsellor and feel comfortable talking to them, so this first session is really important to help you decide whether I'm the right Counsellor for you. And if I'm not, I can point you in the direction to find someone who may be a better fit - Counsellors come in all shapes and sizes, so keep looking until you find someone you feel comfortable with.
I work weekdays, daytime and evenings so get in touch via email, text or phone - I really look forward to hearing from you.
