Welcome to My Website

My name is Janet, and I help people who are facing difficult times.  I see the person, not their problems or symptoms, a fellow human being.  I wonder if I am able to help you?  With wide experience in counselling, hypnotherapy and supervising other counsellors, I am able to tailor what I provide to match your individual needs.  Building on my experence as a Nurse Practitioner, I offer the prompts below to give you an indication of the types of work I do.  If you’re interested, why not get in touch?  A warm welcome awaits you.


I became an Accredited Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) in 2004, and work in accordance with their Ethical Framework.  I am also a United Kingdom Registered Independent Counsellor (UKRC) and have current Professional Indemnity Insurance.  My long medical experience has been invaluable in providing insight into how physical illness can impact upon psychological well-being and how mental issues can cause physical ill health.  As your guide, we can address your darkest thoughts and feelings, to help you live a happier life.
