Dr Jayne Lane - BACP Accredited Counsellor & Clinical Supervisor
Hi - I'm Jayne
Whatever has brought you here, I know how important it is to to be listened to and understood. You'll need me to know how you're feeling and what matters to you. We'll work together in a way that suits you and puts you in the centre. I don't judge. I'll help put you at ease so you can share whatever it is that's concerning you right now.
You may feel clear about what you want from counselling or you may feel a bit unsure of the whys and whats of exactly how you're feeling. Either is quite usual - and we can work on whatever you bring.
When we first meet, we'll will start by exploring your feelings about the situation/concern that's facing you. I'll listen carefully and we can look at options for ways of working together - and we'll review this regularly to make sure it's helping you.
You may have low mood/depression and/or anxiety and my training in the NHS IAPT Counselling for Depression therapeutic approach will help you understand and respond self-caringly to your emotions and your situation and begin to feel your power again.
Perhaps you notice you feel a lot of guilt and have a desire to please people rather than focusing on what you want for yourself - and this bothers you but you feel a bit stuck with it. Somehow, you feel a bit invisible and you'd like this to change. You might be experiencing family/relationship issues; perhaps you've had a tough childhood and some of the emotional pain you felt back then is still impacting you in the here and now. I have experience of supporting clients who are impacted by narcissistic traits in family/friends: this makes you feel confused, as if you can't win and you're unsure how to respond for the best. We can work together on these things.
If you're regularly troubled by intrusive memories of traumatic events, I offer the Rewind Technique for processing and getting control of traumatic memories - this can be a stand-alone brief approach or it can be integrated into longer term therapy. I have found that The Rewind Technique's success rate is high - around 90% of my clients experience positive results, which is very high for any single therapeutic approach.
I have a special interest in autism and ADHD. I have lived experience of neurodivergence within my family and I draw on this and specialist training in my work with neurodivergent clients. Some clients have an existing diagnosis and some don't. I am also able to work with clients who opt for diagnostic assessment. Equally, I am very happy to support clients who do not want an official diagnosis.
I’ve counselled clients in a many different settings, including a GP referral service, a women’s counselling service, an NHS staff counselling service, and a university counselling centre. I now work solely in private practice, including my work as a clinical supervisor to counsellors who are qualified and those who are in training.
I've worked in teaching and management, along with volunteering in a range of sectors, and I've found that this brings useful insights into my client work.
- I offer you a confidential service in line with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy's professional ethical framework.
- Whilst social distancing requirements are in force, I'm offering all clients telephone or video counselling sessions. I'm looking forward to returning to working face-to-face with clients from my lovely, comfortable and private personal counselling room close to central Wakefield. It's about 5 minutes from M1 J41, with free parking right outside - and easily assessed by public transport. Check out the pic of my room lower down this page.
- I work with individual clients aged 17 upwards.
- I offer couples counselling
- In a nutshell, I am non-judgemental, empathic and very real - and I aim to work with you confidentially on what you choose, in a way that feels helpful to you

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

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).

Concessions offered for
I’m from Yorkshire. I’ve lived in other parts of Great Britain (and truly loved Glasgow) and now I’m settled in my home county, in Wakefield.
Jobs I’ve done
Before training in counselling/psychotherapy, I had a variety of jobs, including
- teaching in Further Education
- working in retail staff management
- management consultancy and training
- voluntary work within my local community
I’ve been a researcher and also a volunteer helper in primary schools, and had a brilliant time working with challenging kids, some with special needs, and linking up with their parents, sharing their joys and concerns in the tricky business of raising a family and making difficult decisions. Being a parent can be great job - and a tough one, for sure!
I've volunteered as a fund-raiser within my local community - I loved the creativity of the application process to funding organisations, and the anticipation and excitement when a bid was successful!
For nearly ten years, I managed a team of volunteers with a big heart for caring, working with people whose life-controlling addictions often took them to the edge of despair. Loneliness, friendlessness and fear colour the lives of many of these people, who are often desperately trying to find a way out of this situation.
In every job I’ve had, it’s been the bit about supporting people that I’ve really valued: helping people develop and tap into their inner strengths, maybe surprising themselves by achieving more than they dreamed of.
