My name's Jayne & I have a background in television - I was a Factual Entertainment
Series Producer before I had my children, working for the BBC, ITV, Channel 5, independent production companies & digital networks. I also have a BA (Hons) in Politics.
Originally from Solihull, I've lived all over the UK (London, Birmingham & Glasgow) but I chose to raise my family in the South West with the warm weather and outdoor lifestyle. I especially love being in amongst nature in woodlands, on the beaches & the moors.
My style of counselling is warm, informal and friendly and includes being:
PERSON-CENTRED - I adjust my practice according to what you need. I also believe in you as a unique, valuable, worthwhile human being.
SAFE, CONFIDENTIAL, NON-JUDGEMENTAL, SUPPORTIVE
EMPATHIC - it's my job to walk in your shoes and see the world how you see it.
IN PARTNERSHIP - we work together to achieve your goals
TRAINED - I studied for a Certificate in Counselling and then a BACP Accredited Level 4 Advanced Diploma at the Iron Mill College in Exeter for 2 years, undergoing 40 hours of my own personal therapy and spending over 150 hours in placement.
Although I used to be Accredited with two therapist organisations, I now stand as an Independent Practitioner. Please see the Independent Practice page for more information on what that means for you as a client.
I also have a full enhanced DBS No: 001523633260.
