So who am I? (I haven’t forgotten, honest 😀)
It’s difficult isn’t it? To know who to trust, who to invest in? After all, you are sharing something vitally important, and that is you. Your inner world and struggles, things that you don’t generally want other people to know.
I’m Jan, a therapist who embraces and accepts all of who you are. There’s no judgement here. They say you can only meet people as deeply as you have met yourself and I have gone deep. In doing this it would be impossible to judge you, being a human myself and all that it entails.
It doesn’t have to be hard and complicated
When I started my training, I was annoyed at the idea that resolution to personal stuff had to be difficult and long winded .. why did things have to take years, why did it seem so complicated?
My journey has taken me to a place where I can say to you, it doesn’t have to be complicated and it doesn’t have to take ridiculous amounts of time. I’ve spoken to clients who have seen therapists for years and years and still have the same problem … a personal gripe of mine that is doesn’t need to be this way.
I have digressed, I’m here to tell you a bit about me.
I’m older, wiser (most of the time), married with 2 grown men for sons. I like to be lighthearted and laugh and, where appropriate, encourage this in how I work.
I’m passionate about working with my lovely clients and run Facebook pages and an online business, creating transformative programmes and courses. I hope very soon to be bringing these to this website.
Why I became a Therapist
I became a therapist in an attempt to sort my own stuff out, so the training and personal experience is a valuable combination in my work. I experienced depression and a very negative mindset for many many years. Everyone has stuff to deal with, and I was no different, that is life. Everyone has to deal with a mind that quite frankly can be very unhelpful. Thoughts and beliefs hold you back in many ways if you don’t understand what’s going on.
I’ve trained in a number of therapy skills to bring a fabulous combination of mind body and spirit healing. I am a Master NLP Practitioner (psychology based), and qualified in reiki, chakra rebalancing, tai chi and meditation. I’m intuitive so can get right to the heart of issues quickly.
I’m passionate about helping you to overcome the difficulties that you face, it’s important to me that you get the results that you need. In a no nonsense, straight to the point kind of way.
Sorting things out in a no nonsense way
You won’t be left to talk and talk and try to work things out on your own, that’s not how change happens. New learning, guiding you to think about things differently, releasing those blocks from the past and sorting out that pain.. that is what this is about. I work in a very forward focused way, we glance at the past if needed but we don’t have to stare and stay stuck there.
Number one is your comfort, I’m here not only to help you achieve what it is that you want but to make it as pleasant and easy as we can along the way.
I’m an introvert and highly empathic, this means I can be with you, I’ve got your back and I have the understanding of what is needed at all times. You need to feel safe while you develop and grow and find the real you underneath the struggle.
