Dr Jayne Lane - BACP Accredited Counsellor & Clinical Supervisor
Hi - I'm Jayne
I have a Diploma in Counselling Supervision awarded by the Leeds Centre for Psychological Development. I 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. If you'd like a chat to see if we could work together, feel free to give me a call.
My own experience as a counsellor has been in broad a range of settings: an NHS staff counselling centre, a city centre GP referral service, a women's rehab unit, a women's counselling service, a secondary school, community work with adults whose mental health was impacting on children in their care, and a university counselling service. I now work solely in private practice. You'll see from my counselling profile that I have a special interest in working with neurodivergence - particularly ADHD and autistic clients. I have lived experience of neurodivergence within my family.
I like warmth and encouragement from supervision myself - and that's what I offer. I listen and I focus on what feels important to you and your clients. 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 don't judge; I enjoy supporting and encouraging and I believe passionately in the value of personal (and professional) development. I'm committed to my own development - the learning never stops, does it.... which is what makes our work so stimulating.
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.
Currently, I'm working remotely with all supervisees. 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: firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07753328167.
The fee for 1.5 hours of clinical supervision is £60.
I have a limited number of reduced fee places for counsellors who are not yet qualified.
