About me

I have been working in Mental Health care as a counsellor since 1995. I have worked as a counsellor in Schools, Further education and Universities, Private practice, the Voluntary sector, and Employee Assistance programmes. The presenting issues which clients have brought to my counselling practice during my career has been extensive. I have supported clients in both short term counselling and long term therapy. People seek counselling or psychotherapy for a wide range of reasons, and these are frequently linked with feelings and experiences which they are finding difficult to understand and manage. I am a psychotherapeutic counsellor with over 26 years of experience. I offer counselling/psychotherapy for clients when it may feel hard to find the a way forward on their own. I am committed to providing a safe, confidential and non-judgmental setting and context for our work together, where you can begin to change barriers that may be standing in your way. My aim is to provide a space where you begin to understand yourself and your experiences, and to find ways of feeling able to resolve your personal dififculties and achieve a sense of positivity and hope in respect of the dififuclties you have, or are currently experiencing .
I believe that by creating a safe and private space for counselling, where the therapeutic relationship, and subsequent trust which develops, is a key factor in clients being able to achieve a positive outcome. I have a non-judgemental and anti-discriminatory approach to life and this is central to how I work as a counsellor..

As a senior BACP accredited counsellor my practice is grounded within the BACP Ethical Framework. I also work as a supervisor and trainer online.I frequently provide consultancy services to services who are piloting an e-counselling service for their clients. There are different mediums available for you to choose fromif you decide to seek my counselling support, and you choose which would feel more comfortable for you. At the present time I am offering online counselling via Instant messenging, webcam or voice (telephone). All appointments take place on a secure platform where privacy can be assured.
As a Senior BACP accredited Therapist I have provided face to face and online counselling to clients, counsellors, orgnisations, and students, since 1995. I was an executive member of ACTO for the full term of 7 years (2008-2015) and was also director/organising member of the annual OCTIA conferences (Online Counselling and Training in Action), from 2012-2019.

jane is an excellent therapist, there are a lot of cultural differences between us but even with that she tries to understand my situation and experiences and the things that i struggle with, she’s supportive and nonjudgmental which is something i can greatly appreciate especially in a therapist, i’d definitely recommend her and i’m looking forward to doing more sessions with her

I had 2 sessions with Jane so far and it has already been more helpful than weeks of therapy I had in the past. I’m very grateful I got matched with Jane and would highly recommend her

I felt immediately at ease with Jane, her presence is soft and securing. She has a quick mind, helps you think through complex problems while being very attentive to how you are feeling at each step, and she's very careful that you never fall into overwhelm during her sessions.

I left every session with her feeling inspired and with a renewed clarity on events, past or present.
