Jayne Louise Bassett MSc. Dip Couns. Integrative. Transpersonal. MACC-Accred
When life gets especially difficult it can help to talk things over with an empathic listener, a trustworthy, trained professional who’s on your side and who is there to support you in through whatever you are going through.
A first session will be used to discuss your counselling goals and or what you hope to achieve. I often use a couple of questionnaires which will help to gauge how things are for you now as well as providing you with a helpful way for you to review your progress at a later session.
As an integrative counsellor I draw upon a variety of techniques and approaches as appropriate to a client’s unique circumstances and will often suggest ‘homework’ or ‘bibliotherapy’ in between sessions to enable a deepening understanding and self-development.
I have a comfortable warm room. Occasionally my cat may keep us company and sleep as we talk. I will offer you a drink and have a toilet that you can use if you need it.
If travel is a problem I can offer home visits or hire a suitable room. Alternatively I may be able to offer telephone counselling sessions.
The easiest ways to contact me are by email, phone or text message.

- Difficulties in living

'Jayne is easy to talk to and down to earth. I needed to work through some relatively minor problems but feel she would be a good counsellor for anybody in need of deeper work.'
'Jayne was kind and easy to talk to. I appreciated very much Jayne’s insights into the causes of difficult emotions. and hope to benefit more from them as I work the issues through in my daily life. I also valued the way she tried to find the ‘right’ approach for me, and the time she spent between sessions locating and sending on helpful extra reading.'
'... you gave me hope!!! Thanks again!'
'Things have got better since I started counselling. I've had the opportunity to open up about things in a non-judgmental setting and to realize I'm normal and not weird.'
Thank you for your amazing support and commitment to my sons needs. He has overcome anxiety and stress and copes with day to day life stronger and more successfully. I highly recommend your services.
