Dr Jayne Lane - Reg MBACP PhD Post Grad Diploma Counselling & Psychotherapy
Counsellors - I’m currently offering free clinical supervision - see “qualifications” below for further details.
Hi - I'm Jayne
I'm an experienced Humanistic Integrative counsellor. This means I don't judge and I'm empathic and authentic. I will adapt my approach to fit you. I work with a broad range of issues, for example low mood, anxiety, family/relationship issues, loss, bereavement, trauma and abuse.
I’ve worked in a range of counselling settings, including a GP referral service and a women’s counselling service, and I currently work in a university counselling centre as well as private practice.
I bring my own lived experience to my work - there's more on this in the "Further information" section below, but in brief, I've worked in teaching and management, along with volunteering in a range of sectors. That gives you a flavour of me - but what about you?
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. We will start by exploring your feelings about the situation/concern that's facing you. I'll listen carefully and together we can look at options for ways of working together - and we'll review this regularly to make sure it's helping you.
I work extensively with autism/Aspergers and ADHD; some clients have an existing diagnosis. 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.
People with ADHD will experience some difficulties with concentration or hyperactivity or both. These things can be a challenge to effectiveness as a student or at work. They will have issues with organisation and short term memory - and they are also pretty good at focusing and concentrating on things that really interest them, which can be extremely useful.
Autism is a spectrum condition, which means that there is a huge variety in the ways in which people experience it. Men and women have some differences in the way autism impacts them and in the way they respond to the condition. My aim in working with autistic clients is always to support growth in self-esteem and self-understanding, with the aim of increasing their effectiveness in self-care. Very often we are working together on reducing anxiety and increasing confidence in social settings/relationships.
I offer you a confidential service in line with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy's professional code of ethics.
I am trained in the NHS IAPT Counselling for Depression therapeutic approach.
I offer the Rewind Technique for processing traumatic memory and phobias - 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.
Our working relationship will be very important
It's essential you feel you're working with a counsellor who feels right for you - research shows that's really important.
In our initial consultation, we can see how it feels to work together. Then you can decide if you want to go ahead with further sessions.

- I work with individual clients aged 14 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

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.
