About me

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.

The easiest ways to contact me are by email, phone or text message.

I offer help related to a wide range difficulties in living life to the full and self development group workshops covering:

  • Anger Management
  • Stress and Emotional Resilience
  • Self Awareness
  • Life Transitions


'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.

After one session, Jayne had managed to lift a burden I’d had for many years. Using one of Jayne’s many techniques I saw through my problem and felt such a huge relief. We have discussed other issues and I’m thankful to Jayne for all the tools and techniques she has shared with me and for taking the time to research further information when it was needed.

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.
