The Therapy Shed

Hello, I'm Jane and welcome to my website. Please contact me with any questions.

If you have found my website, then you may be experiencing some of the following things: 

  • You are overwhelmed with anxiety, rage, anger or depression
  • Your relationships are strained or breaking down
  • You have lost someone
  • You cannot voice what you need
  • You cannot find your way
  • You have an inner voice that is really mean

So you may need some help to understand these things, to begin to make sense of your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, other people and even the world.  We have relationships to everything and everyone, including ourselves, and relationships are vital to our mental and emotional wellbeing.  We form relationships (attachments) from birth and this is necessary for both survival and development.  But sometimes our attachments are less than secure and as we go through life we may be confused as to why:

  • Relationships keep ending the same way
  • Why we keep feeling the same old feelings
  • Why we engage in behaviours that are harmful
  • Why we keep telling ourselves that we are not good enough or believe everything is our fault

Well, this is where I can help because I believe if we are fully connected to ourselves and who we are then everything else begins to fall into place.  Relationships become more intimate, fulfilling and stronger.  We have the courage to ditch relationships that are not good for us.  Emotions become more manageable, harmful behaviours lessen, we feel lighter, happier and able to make good decisions.  

Please see my About Me page to learn more about me, my training and experience.    

Fees:

Each session is charged at £55.00.  For student Counsellors the charge is £45.00.  I also have two sessions available for low income clients – please enquire. 

Do you feel disconnected from yourself, others and the world? Has your ’emotional suitcase’ become too heavy to lift?

If it has, life may feel something like this:

  • Overwhelming
  • Relationships are strained, breaking down  
  • You are bereaved 
  • It has become difficult to voice what you need
  • You have an inner critic that is really mean
  • You feel anxious, depressed, experience problematic anger or you feel that you have lost your way

Sometimes communication within our relationships breaks down, which creates conflict, distance and pain.  Our worries may seem jumbled up, or like they are growing bigger and unmanageable by the day.  It can, therefore, become very difficult to make sense of ourselves, others, our emotions and even our lives.

So, you may need some help to:

  • Unpack that case
  • Sort through the contents
  • Find clarity

Being human means that relationships are an important part of our lives.  We are born to attach and to belong in order to survive and develop.  We have relationships with everything and everyone, including ourselves and these relationships throughout our lives can bring us happiness and fulfilment.  However, when they go wrong, or we lose someone, it can feel as if everything is just falling apart.  We can turn our pain inwards to ourselves or outwards to others.  

Sometimes it may be very difficult to talk about this with family or friends, for fear of judgement or being a burden, or maybe we just don’t want to.

I work with individuals over 18 to improve and to gain tools around communication, relationships, self-esteem, self-awareness and emotions, reconnecting people to themselves and those around them, ultimately empowering clients to live their best life.

So, if any of this resonates with you, then you are in the right place……
