About me

Hi - I'm Jayne (pronouns she/her)

I'm working both remotely and face-to-face - I'm really pleased to be able to offer you a choice about this at last. 

I work with people experiencing anxiety, low mood, family/relationship challenges, perhaps with family members with narcissistic traits, neurodivergence, trauma.  I say a little bit more about these areas below, so do scroll down to what is relevant to you.

If you're experiencing low mood/depression and/or anxiety 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.

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.

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.  Maybe somehow, you feel a bit invisible and you'd like this to change.  

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, typically needing three or four sessions,  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.

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 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.

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.
  • I'm offering all clients face-to-face, telephone or video counselling sessions.  I work from a 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

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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)

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.

Further information

About me

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Please let me know if you need an easily accessible therapy room. There is free parking right outside - I can reserve a space if you let me know in advance.
