Therapist

I am an experienced registered BACP and ACTO counsellor and psychotherapist working in private practice and at a large charity in Edinburgh. I help people with a wide range of difficulties, from diagnosed mental health conditions, to feelings of depression and anxiety, bereavement, gender and sexuality issues and difficult relationship and workplace problems.

I understand every client to be unique in their personality and needs, and that while one therapeutic approach may be very helpful for a particular client, for another it might not be. I am trained in Psychodynamic, Person Centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy enabling me to work in a way that is best suited to each client; for example, providing plenty of space for you to tell your story, placing a greater or lesser emphasis on your childhood, using more or less structured thinking, or perhaps setting gentle but effective goals.

I work in a warm, supportive and open way, ensuring your voice and needs are heard and respected. In this way I support you to understand yourself; your needs, conflicts, anxieties, defences, and relational patterns on a much deeper level, enabling you to explore alternative ways of being and relating, to help bring you greater satisfaction and stability to your life.

Hello – My name is Jan

I work in an integrative way ensuring that the client does not feel judged so that they can feel confident enough to form a trusting relationship with me. I am led by the needs of the client sensitive to the fact that each individual person is an expert in understanding themselves and has the ability to help themselves with appropriate support

I am qualified to offer Online Counselling and Online supervision. I specialise in counselling young people / young adults, online and face to face. I understand the feelings of loneliness, despair and fear that many young people struggle with.
