About me and my therapy practice
Welcome to Jane W Counselling - MBACP
Experiencing issues such as anxiety, low self-esteem or relational problems may be a response to chronic, or recurring issues seated in the past. This is where counselling, or psychotherapy, can be really helpful.
The impact of difficult experiences, attachment (early years) or relational issues, abuse or maybe bereavement, are often out of our awareness and sometimes, maladapted coping strategies, learnt behaviours/ways of being and relating can be developed that work to help us function in everyday life, though they are not always healthy ones and can impact the decisions we make.
Working in an Integrative, relational way drawing upon attachment theory, supported with psycho-education, works to help you understand how and why such strategies, learnt ways of relating and being, have been constructed, to question their purpose!
Therapy and the therapeutic relationship can help to develop a greater sense of self-awareness and for confidence to grow. An understanding of how and why your mind and body responds the way it does when struggling with issues, or difficult thoughts or feelings, allows for greater awareness and the ability to make changes and healthier decision making for a healthier, happier self.
I offer long term & short-term counselling as well as online therapy.
I am based in Marsden/Slaithwaite and am easily accessible from Holmfirth and Huddersfield and the surrounding areas, including Manchester by train.
My first session
An initial telephone, no obligation telephone call helps to assess if I am the right therapist for you. This will involve talking a little about the issues that have brought you to consider therapy and what your goals and expectations are. During this initial meeting, we would also talk a little about how the work may look going forward, therapy fees and availability of sessions.
This initial call would also allow for you to ask any questions or concerns you may have. There is no charge for this initial contact.
Following the initial contact, and the way I feels right for you we would then look to book the first session. At this stage, I would send you some paperwork and a therapy agreement to read and send back before the first session.
During our first session, I would undertake a more comprehensive assessment to help support and inform the way work as well as the goals/outcomes agreed upon during the session.
