I’m an integrative pratictioner, which means I incorporate person-centred, transactional analysis and CBT theories, techniques and approaches into my work. This gives me a broad knowledge base to draw on, and allows me to be flexible and responsive in adapting to what you need.
I am fully qualified, holding a diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, and am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). This means I follow guidance provided by the BACP to make my therapeutic work as effective, ethical, safe and supportive to you as possible.
As well as therapeutic work in women’s centres, schools and other settings, I’ve worked in and been a member of my local queer and arts communities for many years, so I know first-hand how these sorts of identities and commitments can cause questions, conflicts, uncertainties and insecurities, or amplify other issues you might be struggling with.
My background involves using creative writing, storytelling and performance to empower people of all ages and backgrounds to explore and tell their stories. Outside the therapy room, I’m a published, prizewinning writer and performer with extensive experience of working with a wide range of audiences – using creative activities and processes to build skills, awareness, confidence and resilience.
From founding and establishing a non-profit dedicated to championing writers, to coordinating events and workshops and across the UK, I have a proven commitment to celebrating all voices and stories, with a focus on being accessible, supportive and inclusive.
I’ve had incredible feedback for my one-to-one therapeutic work, with clients reporting feeling less isolated and afraid, and becoming more self-compassionate, self-accepting and resilient over the course of our sessions together.
I’ll always treat you with empathy, acceptance and understanding, supporting you and recognising your courage and resilience – even when you feel anything but.Get your free consultation
I've seen many other counsellors and no one has been anywhere close to helping in the way Jane did.
Jane supported me through the most challenging, upsetting and stressful time of my life. She's fantastic.
Jane's input has been fantastic. She is an amazing woman who has helped me get to a place I never thought possible. Her knowledge is massive and her manner patient and welcoming. She made me feel at ease in every session, and gave me emotional help that has been paramount to my recovery.
Jane is open, intuitive, positive, sensitive, creative - everything I needed from this experience. I felt heard and supported throughout and I've ended this phase feeling empowered and excited to move on.
An absolute godsend! I can't thank you enough for all your support over the last weeks. This experience will stay with me for life: a safe, non-judgemental environment where I was able to work through some very difficult stuff with an insightful and extremely helpful human! Jane is very respectful, easy to trust and talk to, and just very lovely. Immensely beneficial.
Jane is incredibly supportive. Her vast knowledge of different mental heath issues and ways to help is so valuable in a counsellor.
