About me and my therapy practice

Hi, my name is Janet and I am a Counsellor and Counselling Supervisor (at least I hope so otherwise I'm on the wrong web  site). Like many others in my profession, I chose to train as a Counsellor because of personal traumas, problems and dilemmas which were very difficult to cope with.

There are times in our lives when we all feel unable to cope, are stressed, unhappy or depressed. We may have suffered abuse, divorce, work problems, bereavement, stress, anxiety, trauma or serious illness. Occasionally we may have difficult decisions to make, or are worrying about health or relationship issues. Sometimes, we have difficulty coping with change or we simply need someone to talk to who is not a family member or friend.

I firmly believe that counselling helps us to find a hidden strength, and an inner resilience that enables us to cope with the most distressing problems and circumstances in our lives.

I have experience of therapy and understand how nerve racking it is to take that initial step. Fear of the unknown and talking about our innermost thoughts and feelings to complete stranger can be very scary. However, counselling can help by providing a non-judgmental, professional and supportive relationship in privacy and with confidentiality, enabling exploration of our feelings and to find ways of coping. It is my conviction that a genuine, ethical and therapeutic relationship enhances our ability to make changes to our lives, and to our emotional well-being, thereby enabling us to discover a deeper understanding of ourselves and an improvement to our self esteem.

Every client is unique and therefore therapy is tailored to individual needs.

About me and my therapy practice

Hi my name is Janet and I am a Counsellor/Psychotherapist and Counselling Supervisor who has had lots of (what has often been traumatic) life experience.

The approach I use in Supervision is Developmental and Person Centred.

I believe that both Supervisors and Counsellors learn from each other. However, Supervision provides a fresh set of eyes over the complexity of client work whilst providing the Supervisee with the support and confidence to become as proficient and ethical as possible.

The overriding concern for both Counsellor and Supervisor is to provide the best possible therapeutic outcome to the client.
