Dr Jayne Lane - Reg MBACP Counsellor & Clinical Supervisor
Hi - I'm Jayne
If you're looking for a humanistic/pluralistic supervisor, do give me a call.
I have a Diploma in Counselling Supervision awarded by the Leeds Centre for Psychological Development which trained me to support my supervisees working within their preferred modality - so you may be purely Person Centred or Integrative - humanistic or relational. Trainee and experienced counsellors are both very welcome. I decided, after much thought, to apply for BACP accreditation and I'm currently awaiting the outcome of their assessment process - so I have current experience of all this to offer supervisees considering making an application themselves.
I like warmth and encouragement from supervision myself - and that's what I offer. I listen and I focus on what feels important. I value authenticity - and I like to collaborate and share experience and expertise when that seems helpful. For instance, we've all learned a lot about remote counselling work during lockdown - sharing what we know makes sense to me.
I've had teaching, training and management job roles in the past, along with voluntary work in community fund raising, and also outreach support to female sex workers with life controlling addictions. In some shape or form, I guess I bring bits and pieces of this experience to the way I work both as a counsellor and as a supervisor. I definitely enjoy supporting and encouraging supervisees in their personal and professional development - the teacher/trainer part of me pops up there, I know. I'm committed to my own development - the learning never stops, does it.... which is what makes our work so stimulating.
You'll see from my counselling profile that I have a special interest in working with neurodivergent clients - particularly ADHD and ASC. I have lived experience of neurodivergence within my family. When I was working as a school counsellor, I began to see patterns in client presentations that intrigued me. I did some research and came across a wealth of information about autism. I felt I was reading about some of my clients - I booked myself onto some training for counsellors working with neurodivergence and I attend monthly ADHD/ASC CPD (currently remotely) and specialist supervision in a closed group.
Coronavirus is having a huge impact on our nation. While social distancing is in force, I am offering supervision remotely by secure telephone or video platforms. I am happy to offer permanent remote supervision, too - for some of us, it's just as effective as f2f and it can be more convenient when we're fitting so many things into busy lives.
Once all social distancing requirements are lifted, I'm looking forward to returning to f2f working from my lovely counselling room in central Wakefield. There is free parking right outside and a regular bus service - 5 minutes' journey from the bus station. It's a 20 minute walk from Wakefield Kirkgate/Westgate stations.
If you would like to chat about the possibility of us working together, contact me: email@example.com or on 07753328167.
The fee for 1.5 hours of clinical supervision is £60.
