Therapy and Counselling with Jane Abbott

I offer therapeutic counselling for adults, young people and adolescents. Since qualifying in 2005 I have had the privilege of counselling people of different ages and from all walks of life. I have worked with people who have retired, people who are in middle age, young people at the start of their working life, students and adolescents in and out of school. I worked as a school counsellor for many years.

As well as working with people in the Uk, I have extensive experience of working with people who are from different cultures and who have different beliefs e.g. Malaysia, India,  Libya, Thailand, Mongolia and various parts of Africa who now live, work and study in the UK.

I call myself an integrative counsellor which means my practice is informed by different counselling approaches to best meet the needs of each individual client. I believe that one of the most important aspects of therapeutic counselling is the relationship between the counsellor and client. In order to develop the relationship, I try to be non-judgemental, empathic and genuine. It is very important I see the clients’ feelings, circumstances and what concerns them from their point of view. I have found that we rarely fully listen to one another and the affirmation of having been listened to cannot be underestimated. I work collaboratively with whatever the client wishes to talk about. I try to help the client gain an understanding of their feelings, the reasons they came to see me and explore. In doing I  try to help the client gain an understanding of their feelings, the reasons they came to see me and explore possible ways forward.
