Emotional Well being Coach and Psychotherapeutic Counsellor
Finding the right Counsellor, Therapist or Coach can seem a daunting prospect and I often find that my best sales force are my previous clients. So if you have stumbled across me or been recommended, let me start by telling you exactly who I am and let’s see how we can work together.
I work with clients who are struggling to cope with negative thoughts and behaviours. I can help you explore why you act and react in certain situations, allowing you to stay calmer when challenged and overcome the things that stop you, bringing greater happiness into your life.
By combining various therapies such as Spectrum Therapy, Counselling, Hypnotherapy and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming)I can get to the root cause of the issue quickly, leaving you feeling lighter and inspired to take the next steps.
I’d like to introduce my 7 step Freedom2 series which is dedicated to helping you change your life. Clients develop a more positive attitude, gain greater confidence and free themselves from their internal limitations. You can heal from your past: from difficult childhood experiences, past relationships, trauma, loss, bereavement and build a brighter future for you and your family.
I work with the person as a whole – Mind, Body and Spirit, to bring about healing, improve your health and wellbeing and help you reach your desired goals.I have always had a passion for helping others and had spent years in the role of the “counsellor” before I ever took up the training. A naturally empathic person I always wanted the best for those I met and spent 20 years in Customer Service actually doing that, sorting problems, listening and directing customers to getting the help they needed. Eventually, the sales targets became bigger than the little people and I walked out into the world of enterprise and self employment. I started BrownSugar Events with a friend and created The All Woman Show an event for women of all ages, to meet and buy from local businesses and have great fun whilst they did so. A few years later we sold the business and I found myself looking for a new challenge.
I studied Philosophy and embraced the positive psychology of speakers such as Dr Wayne Dyer, Eckhart Tolle and The Secret. I was searching, I was learning but I had no real sense of where I was heading, but I was awakening to my own spiritual and personal journey. Then in 2010, major life events directed me to a point where I was very vulnerable, alone and frightened. I made a choice then to succeed in rebuilding my life, to keep well and look after those I care for. It was a crossroads; I chose the road less travelled and stepped away from what I knew into the unknown.
So it began…
I trained as an NLP Practitioner, Hypnotherapist and Spectrum Therapist (TM) and Counsellor.
I became involved with The Rowans Hospice undertaking training as a Bereavement Counsellor and joined such a wonderful inspiring and caring community. Each step I took became easier and lighter and I embraced the journey of what I believe to be my life purpose with total passion and commitment. That’s not to say that there weren’t ups and downs but seeing the transformation of those I was working with inspired me throughout those times. My absolute desire and drive was to help others heal emotionally from the difficulties in their past and succeed in living the life they were born to live.
Since then I have completed myMaster NLP Practitioner & Advanced Hypnotherapy training and became a Platinum Spectrum Therapist™. Not only do I work 1-1 with clients but I am part of a team of coaches who have supported such charities as Peace4Life, Key4Life, The Wilderness Foundation alongside working in Bristol Young Offenders Institute and Ineo Life.
Now I help people who find their life controlled and restricted due to:
- Low Self Esteem
- Lack of Confidence
- Weight Loss issues
Furthermore, with over 500+ hours of clinical experience I have also dealt with clients suffering Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Abuse, Rape, Mental Health, Trauma, Addictions, Eating Disorders, Domestic Violence, Miscarriage, Loss and Bereavement.
People often ask me how I can work in such a wide variety of issues but what underpins all these emotionally distressing states are our Negative Emotions, Internal Conflicts and Limiting Beliefs – which is where I work to make positive, lasting change.
As an Emotional Wellness Coach I always feel privileged and humbled to work with clients who are often sharing with me their inner-most thoughts, feelings, aspirations and life stories. It is a very unique relationship and I would like to assure you of my confidentiality, professionalism and determination to help you achieve your goals.
I am fully insured. I take part in regular Supervision and have an enhanced CRB check. I am an Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society, American Board of Hypnotherapy, and American Board of Neuro Linguistic Programming. I am also a member of The Association of Synergy Coaching CIC, and abide by their ethics and code of practice.
I would like to say a very big "Thank You" for all the work you did with me. I did not realise that I was in such a "Dark Place" until we started The Programme. I am feeling so much better now and I am looking forward to a brighter future Thanks to you. I am so grateful that I took that "First Step" and made that appointment. You are such an amazing person and I would gladly recommend you to anyone in the future that may need your help.
When I first met Janet for my work/life anxiety issues, I immediately felt at ease because of her caring and warm nature. She has an almost instant ability to see/know where to deal/resolve any issues. On the very first session I was amazed to learn new things about myself (that have always been there, but not visible to me - on my blind side!). With each visit came new learnings and light bulb moments. The gentle and compassionate approach, with her spectrum colour techniques take you back on your own life's journey to resolve/heal past memories or inner negative beliefs. I can't recommend enough if you have anxiety issues to see Janet. It was the most incredible journey (and my very own). She will make you see life through a new vision and make you feel complete again.
Janet was very kind, a great listener, gave me support and techniques in order to cope with my emotions and talk about my life in the wider picture. It certainly helped my grieving process.
