Hello, I'm Jane.

I'm an experienced bereavement, loss and grief counsellor who helps both adults, and children over the age of 10, who would like support after a bereavement or loss of some kind.

After a bereavement, or loss, you might be experiencing some, or all, of the following feelings:

  • Emptiness. pain and sadness

  • Feeling isolated and lonely

  • Stress and anxiety taking over your life

  • Lacking energy due to not sleeping

If you're looking for help , you've come to the right place.

Recognise yourself here?

Someone asks how you are, so you say

'Yes, fine....' when you're far from fine...

Because you don't want to burden them with how you really feel.

You then start thinking about all the things you have to do ,then you feel the tension headache starting again.

You might not be able to to even face doing anything at all on some days.

Then you think that everything is getting on top of you and you don't know whether you're coming or going.

You choose to cancel plans and shut yourself away from family and friends as you don't feel like talking to anyone.

You don't want to do anything, any more, except stare at the TV?

Or just go to bed?

I wonder-is this you?

If so, I can help.

What I Can Do to Help You

Deciding to book some counselling sessions with me will help you to make a positive difference to your everyday life, as we will work through your feelings and emotions together.

The choice between staying in bed, or getting up, might be impossible for you to face right now.

Deciding to book some counselling sessions with me will mean that you will be able to get the support you need to manage your grief.

I will help you during your counselling sessions, to feel supported, listened to, heard and valued.

Grief is different for everyone, and nobody experiences the same grief as someone else.

I will give you the time that you need to talk about anything you want to.

Your story matters because you are important.

Choose from Face to Face, Phone or Online Counselling

I am able to offer you face- to-face counselling in either Canvey Island, or Benfleet, in comfortable and calm surroundings.

I offer telephone and online counselling too.

Some of the benefits of choosing telephone and online counselling include:

Flexibility with where your appointment takes place.

No need to travel-which offers a convenient option for those who are housebound, or who are unable to travel to Canvey or Benfleet for any reason.

Please contact me via my contact form, or by phoning me, to book

About Telephone Counselling

If you choose telephone counselling, you will be called by me on your mobile number at our booked appointment time.

Make yourself comfortable in a quiet , private place where you won't be disturbed. When you are ready, let me know and we can begin our counselling session.

In my quiet, private counselling room, headphones will be worn by me to ensure your complete privacy.

About Online Counselling

After you have booked your counselling session and chosen to use Zoom, you will receive an e-mail from me, this will contain a link, a password and a number which you will need to enter to join the Zoom call, once you click onto the link.

If you choose Zoom counselling for your initial consultation, I will talk you through the Zoom set up if you need to learn your way around the Zoom platform, so that you are comfortable with using Zoom before we begin our consultation. This set up tutorial is provided with your initial consultation, however you will receive a full 50 minutes of counselling after your tutorial.

You can choose to use the Zoom call to chat in real time too during the consultation, I will show you how this works if needed.
