Jayne Louise Bassett MSc. Dip Couns. ACC Registered. Integrative. Transpersonal.
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 work through whatever you are going through.
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.
A first session will be used to discuss what you want to get out of counselling and to set a counselling goal. I often use a couple of questionnaires which will help us 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.
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 that you can access. Alternatively I may be able to offer telephone counselling sessions.
The easiest ways to contact me are by email, phone or text message.
I offer help related to:
- Difficulties in living
- Excessive worry
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Inner critics, self sabotage, inner conflict
- PTSD / CPTSD
- Childhood Trauma
- Relationship difficulties
- Stigma and self stigma
And issues related to:
Lack of confidence & purpose
Relationship / communication issues
Domestic violence & abuse
Faith based and/or spiritual crises
I am registered with the Association of Christian Counsellors (ACC) and adhere to the ACC Code of Ethics.
'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.'
