Jayne Meadows Counselling (Registered MBACP)
Hi there, I'm Jayne, a qualified and professional person-centred counsellor with experience at working in the voluntary sector for several years and more recently in an NHS service. I am also a registered member of the BACP. Although my foundation is person-centred I often work in an integrative way to ensure the counselling is tailor made to suit you as "one size does not fit all". I realise that, initially, approaching a counsellor can seem daunting, my therapeutic approach is very down to earth which I hope puts my clients at ease.
You might be asking, What is counselling all about? How can talking change anything? Counselling is about providing a warm, safe environment in which you can explore any issues or concerns without being judged. It is about offering a therapeutic healing relationship in which your voice is always heard. It is about feeling empathy and understanding in this relationship. This environment and the therapeutic relationship are the catalyst for personal growth.
So, can talking change anything? Most definitely yes, none of us can change past events but counselling can give you the opportunity to make sense of what happened, to truly acknowledge your feelings and to be heard, which is often all that is needed to unhook us from the past and allow us to move forward with our life.
There are other issues that may bring you to counselling that perhaps do not seem related to past events, such as relationship issues and we can work on these together also. Often, having some additional understanding in varying styles of communication can provide further insight into your relationship and if you can see where the problem is then you can decide if you want this to change and how you can go about it.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
