About Janice

I have been a practising psychotherapist, counsellor and energy healer in Shepshed, between Loughborough & Ashby-de-la-Zouch for the past 28 years. I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling, a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychotherapy, and became a professionally registered member of UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) in 1999, and am a Reiki Master, for which my membership organisation is The Reiki Association.

I am also a member of The British Holistic Medicine Association, The International Reiki Association, and am in the process of registering for membership of The Counselling Society, since it now better reflects my approach to treating the mind and body holistically.

Prior to training in this profession, I was Head of English in a secondary school, before subsequently training to become a Chartered Member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. For several years, I provided training across the charity sector, the public sector and in private companies, specialising in communication and interpersonal skills, assertiveness and confidence-building, time management and management development. This experience continues to prove useful to clients who come to see me for help in these areas.

I have also studied mindfulness, both as a personal practice, but also for the way in which it can benefit clients. I teach mindfulness techniques where clients specifically ask for them. Clients have particularly found them useful in helping with anxiety, panic attacks and OCD.

I was also, between 2001 and 2005, Director of the MA in Psychodynamic Counselling at Leicester University, This is also where I carried out my own 8-year counselling and psychotherapy training.

During that time, my specialist interest was the latest research in neuroscience, and in particular the interconnectedness of the mind and body. I have taught and lectured widely on this subject, and have a breadth of knowledge and experience on the relevance of latest findings and thinking in the treatment of trauma, PTSD and anxiety.


About Janice. Nicky's Counselling Room

My experience

My experience as a therapist spans nearly 30 years, and inevitably that experience is therefore rich and varied and substantial. Throughout this time, I have maintained a significant private practice alongside working as a psychotherapist, supervisor, trainer and group facilitatorin a variety of other settings.

I worked initially as a counsellor at the University of Leicester Counselling Service, working both with undergraduate and postgraduate students and staff.

I have also worked extensively in the statutory and charity sectors, working both with individuals and within teams. I have also worked with young people with special needs, and also with their families and the staff supporting them.

I have worked within companies and within teams in the private sector, providing support and training to employees experiencing personal difficulties which were impacting on their work, and still continue to be invited to do so. I have also supported staff in the statutory sector undergoing stressful or traumatic events, and have regularly run away days with the purpose of helping teams and the individuals within them process and come to terms with emotionally challenging experiences, especially for social services and the police.

Shortly after graduating as a psychotherapist, I was invited to become involved in the Counselling and Psychotherapy Programme at Leicester University. I initially taught on the Counselling Certificate, and then progressed to supervising and facilitating personal development groups as a group therapist.

I was appointed Director of the MA in Counselling in 1998, and maintained that post until leaving to set up in full-time private practice in 2004. I have been in full-time private practice since that time.


About Janice. My therapy room

My approach

My initial training was psychodynamic. However, within that training there was significant emphasis placed upon the theory and practice of other models.

These included:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Humanistic Psychotherapy
Brief Solution-Focussed Therapy
Gestalt
Person-centred
Cognitive Analytical Therapy (CAT)
Drama Therapy
Integrative Psychotherapy
Holistic Psychotherapy

In practice, my theoretical model is a holistic and integrative one, and I adjust my model and way of working to the needs of each individual client.

I am committed to providing a safe, respectful, lively and engaging space for you. My style is warm and friendly, but you will also find me very open, honest, challenging and insightful, and an active partner in your healing process.

My approach is holistic, and this means that I shall see you, and treat you, as a complex human being, mind-body-spirit. I shall see you as being many parts, many experiences, the sum total of all of these having brought you to where you are right now. And I shall hold you to be capable of healing yourself, and of having all the resources you need inside you.

All you need is my active company, support and expertise. And that you will have.
