About me and my therapy practice
My name is Jan Bakewell and I'm based in Blackburn. I offer affordable, one-to-one private counselling, covering all the issues that affect a person's quality of life and happiness.
I am a qualified, experienced counsellor on the register with BACP (Register No. 141318) with 8 years experience working for a local counselling service, helping clients of all ages to make the changes they need to improve their quality of life.
I offer face to face, telephone, video (Zoom, Teams or WhatsApp) counselling sessions or if you prefer I also offer 'Walk and Talk' counselling sessions in our lovely local countryside.
Different counselling styles suit different people. I use a range different of counselling approaches to provide the right support for you. I have worked successfully with a wide range of issues including: stress, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, anger management, abuse, bereavement and relationship issues.
Many of us experience times in our lives when we feel under pressure and find it hard to cope, mentally, emotionally or due to physical health concerns. Sometimes we need the support and understanding of someone who can offer another perspective, helping us to see a fresh insight without feeling judged.
Whether you're struggling with unresolved feelings from the past, difficulties happening right now or worries about the future, counselling can provide the time and space for you to work through your concerns and help make sense of your life.
Having the time and space set aside to explore these issues in a safe and supportive environment can really help.
