Counselling and Psychotherapy Melbourne, Derbyshire


Hello, and thank you for visiting my website. I hope you will find the information and links over the next few pages helpful.

Most people, at some time in their lives, need help with difficult experiences, thoughts and feelings. Taking the first step towards change can seem daunting. As a counsellor/therapist I can offer you a relationship and space in which you can feel safe to talk, in a confidential environment, free from judgment. The therapeutic relationship can provide a secure base from which to explore feelings, thoughts and ways of being, and has the potential to generate new patterns of regulating the ways we feel, think or behave.

My name is Jane, and I am BACP registered psychotherapist with an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy. I have considerable experience of working with a broad range of clients and difficulties and have been running my private counselling/therapy practice for 12 years.  I also have experience of counselling for a large and much respected charitable counselling service as well as working as a school counsellor with teenagers and young people.

My private practice is based in Melbourne in the East Midlands, close to M1 Junc 24 and is within easy reach of Derby, Ashby de la Zouch, Burton on Trent, Castle Donington and Kegworth. The location is very private with off road parking.

In my practice I offer counselling and psychotherapy to individuals and couples over the age of 18, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and live it more fully.

 I am experienced in helping clients who are having difficulties with issues such as:

relationship difficulties
life events like divorce, bereavement or other types of loss
anxiety
depression
panic attacks
work related stress
bullying
exam stress
life transitions including retirement or adolescence
trauma
abuse
domestic violence
self esteem
mental and emotional effects of involvement in sport
identity
strong feelings such as anger, shame or guilt
physical ill-health or disability

Sometimes it is hard to address difficulties and challenges without professional help. The therapeutic relationship is unique in that it offers the availability of another human being who has no pre-conceived ideas about you or personal agenda other than to be in relationship with you and be helpful in exploring these difficulties and guiding you in the direction that is right for you.
