About Me

I qualified as a counsellor/therapist in 2009 achieving a BSc degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy. Immediately after graduation I set up my private practice, initially I had an office in Brentwood, now my office is based in Ongar, Essex. I have built my private client base up by advertising through the Counselling Directory which has lead to a lot of referrals. In addition I started work on a self employed bases with West Essex Mind, I have worked for them for approximately 8/9 years, In March 2019 an opportunity to work for a group of schools in Tilbury came my way, within this environment I offer counselling and support to members of staff. I still work for both Mind and Schools.
I work mainly with CBT and incorporate Mindfulness and some Person-Centred counselling depending on clients needs. My best work I feel is with Anxiety, Depression and low self esteem issues, however, I also have experience working with abuse, eating disorders, addictions, couples, children, bereavement. I am a good communicator and listener who has a positive outlook, I have the ability to motivate others to help them become their best selves.

I worked with Jane over the course of a couple months and really felt a massive improvement in how I felt. Jane gave me the tools to be more confident and have more self-belief, whilst also learning to not be so hard on myself.
Jane is also a really lovely person who wants the best for the people that she works with, I am very glad that I was paired with her!

Written by J.O. on May 17, 2022 after therapy with Jane for 3 weeks on issues concerning eating disorders, and addictions

I've worked with Jane for a month and can clearly see how I've grown over that period. Jane has been helpful, and spotted areas of concern that I wasn't aware of. She's offered advice on how to deal with them and worked with me to set achievable and manageable goals throughout the month.

I've been really pleased with how it's gone.

Work with me!
