Jayne Howe MBACP
I am qualified and experienced Counsellor. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
I am based in the centre of Herne Bay and also in Wincheap, Canterbury. I also work in Secondary Schools as a School Counsellor, and have experience and qualities helpful in supporting students in higher education.
I have a lot of experience in working with panic attacks, trauma, anxiety, bereavement, post-natal depression and low self esteem issues.
It can feel like a big step just thinking about having counselling; and you may be feeling anxious and apprehensive, I would like to offer you a safe place where you can begin to express your thoughts and feelings.
It can be a tremendous relief to find someone that can truly listen to you.
Working in a non-judgemental way, I will follow your pace, and support you as you begin to make choices that will improve your well-being, confidence and self-esteem; enabling you to express feelings and experience a self-acceptance that can lead to a more meaningful and fulfilling existence.
I offer short and long term counselling. With an initial assessment; you can then decide if you wish to have further sessions.
Please see below for fees and concessions.
