About me and my therapy practice
Janet Hanes MBACP counsellor.
Welcome to my page.
There are times in our lives when we experience distressing events, this can sometimes make us feel anxious, depressed or confused. I will do my best to help you make sense of your feelings. I can offer an opportunity for you to explore your thoughts, emotions and worries at your own pace in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental way. It will enable you to gain a better understanding of yourself and find that solution.
I am a person-centered / intregative counsellor , which means I can apply the best therapeutic approach that may suit your particular need.
I am a registered member of BACP and I work within The Ethical code of good practice.
I currently work for two charitable counselling organisations.
One specialises in bereavement and loss and the added complications that sometimes occur during the loss of a loved one.
The second organisation provides a high standard of counselling, with a wide variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, loss, past abuse.
My background is Nursing, I qualified 2001 as a registered nurse. My experience of nursing over the years has shown me, the importance of not just the medical and nursing interventions in improving a patients health, but along side this the immense value of being listened too, for a patient to be able to express their feelings and concerns at a difficult time for them and their families can be hugely beneificial and can facillitate healing.
I am now retired from Nursing, and these experiences I felt from caring and listening, inspired me to become a counsellor and offer an empathic safe space and build a therapuetic relationship that can also facillitate healing.
