About me and my therapy practice
Hi my name is Jane, I am a fully qualified Integrative and CBT Therapist with over 15 years experience. If you are considering Counselling it may be the first step to making change. It can be difficult when you are feeling low , distressed or managing conflicting feelings to make a decision about the best way forward to begin feel better.
I can provide you with a safe relaxed space to explore, with no judgement , what you are experiencing in the here and now or from the past. Together we can find a place to begin that you feel comfortable with.
My role is to understand your world through your eyes, as an individual, unique and sacred person. I believe in an holistic approach taking into account the balance of your mental, emotional , physical and spiritual wellbeing.
I believe that my clients know best as to what is the cause of their difficulties and how they can heal. This knowledge can be hidden, submerged and estranged through trauma or the pressures of daily life. In having space to talk in a confidential and empathic space you can begin to remember , uncover and develop new strategies and perspectives to move forward. Leaving behind thoughts and feelings that no longer support and help you become your true, authentic, higher self and be able to engage fully in everyday life.
As an Integrative Therapist I work with different Psychotherapeutic theories and blend them to find the most appropriate to help you to begin to heal and move towards engaging in a fulfilling future.
To begin I offer a free 20 minute telephone session to talk through what you would like to achieve from counselling and how I may be able to help you.
I have offices in Chester and Ellesmere Port, as well as providing telephone and online counselling.
My work is with children, adolescents and adults.
I blend a number of theories depending on each individual client. These include, Person Centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Transactional Analysis and Trauma Focused CBT for children.
I specialise in rape and sexual abuse and counselling clients with neurological conditions , their families and carers.
Spirituality is important to me . I incorporate Shamanism into my life and when requested my work. Connecting with spirit has informs my way of viewing the world and people, in that we are sacred beings, we have equal value and deserve to be heard and acknowledged.
My first session
The first session, which is 50 minutes, is to find out what has brought you to counselling at this time. Some people have a clear idea of what they would like to work on or to change. Some clients have no idea they just know that they want life to be different. Both are a good place to start, and a brave step to take.
You can decide what you feel comfortable talking about in this and any future sessions , there is no pressure to speak about anything you don't feel ready too.
I will explain the boundaries around Therapy and the practicalities around the sessions. I have a standard contract which we will go through and we can discuss any flexibility that you may require, so we are both clear on what to expect and ensure our agreement works for both of us.
It is an opportunity to ask any questions you may have and express and worries or concerns , which I can answer and work through with you.
There is no pressure to book a further appointment until you are ready.
