About Me

IMG_2617 smaller

Jayne has many years experience of counselling working in different charity organisations and private practice. She has worked in Child line, Rasa, Cais (drugs and alcohol) and Parabl (Stepped care as used in the NHS) and has a wealth of experience in issues such as abuse, depression, anxiety, stress, domestic violence, addictive behaviours, suicidal thoughts. I also has experience in working with Young People as well as working with ADHD, Autism and Aspergers. I am a CBT practitioner, however she does work in a person centred manner. I am happy to work with disabilities. There are no judgments about race, ability, culture, religion or gender.
I have an open and natural communication style, being warm and welcoming from the start. My empathy and intuition enable me to sensitively help each client explore and resolve issues in the way that suits them best. I believe in the client’s power and autonomy to direct their own life and healing and rely on the therapeutic relationship to facilitate that process. I believe that many of our problems stem from long-term over-adaptation to our external world with not enough attention being paid to our internal world. We may often do things that we do not truly want to, or we may feel driven by an inner judge or critic. I help people to see through this complexity and feel a greater inner contentment.

I am passionate about working with people who have experienced Domestic Abuse, or Addictions.

What is counselling?
We all feel worried or unhappy at times in our lives and it often helps to talk. Friends and family can help, but sometimes it is better to talk to someone who is not close to the situation, who will not judge us, and who is trained to help us find ways of coping.
Counselling can help us see things in a different way; it can also be thought provoking, life changing and empowering. It can help you explore what is troubling you and allowing you to gain confidence to make positive changes. Counsellors are trained to listen, in a non-judgmental confidential environment.

How I work
I work integratively, which means it allows us to explore a number of approaches because everyone is different. This includes Person Centred, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Transaction Analysis and Solution Focused. I can also work therapeutically with Art if the client is open to this medium.
