Counselling and Animal Assisted Therapy

Client CF719

Jane has been carrying out CBT for my 12 year old son, Charlie for the last 8 weeks. This therapy has really helped Charlie with his troubles, worries and anxiety. He is a lot less stress now than he was 8 weeks ago. Jane has listened to him, given him activities to carry out and coping strategies when having panic attacks. I would recommend Jane to others. She has been great with Charlie.

Core evidence-based score at the start of therapy was 14 after 8 weeks the score dropped to 6, showing improvement by more than half in only 8 weeks!

Friendly and professional

I would highly recommend Jayne's services to schools, families or individuals. Jayne is friendly, very easy to talk to and makes both adults and children feel at ease. My daughter enjoyed spending time with Jayne and her dogs. A fabulous service.


Such a positive experience

Client - 10 sessions - anxiety

When everything else didn’t work at home, it was really positive to find a solution that did. Jane’s counselling was a step-by-step process that helped to overcome issues in an easy, positive and relaxed way. With lots of helpful handouts and videos available it was easy to understand where my thoughts were coming from and how they can be changed and handled. Jane talked to me in a very down to earth way that helped to reassure and comfort me throughout the whole counselling process. The animals, especially Neisha the cat, were very friendly and affectionate and helped to make me feel more at ease to open up. I would highly recommend Jane and her animal assisted therapy to anyone needing help.

Client reply - I'm happy with it.  It helped me be more reflective.  My anxiety before therapy was 10/10 after therapy 5/10. I had interactions with all the cats, which really helped calm my anxiety.

Affordable and Relatable

Jane is a very down to earth woman that makes you feel welcome and comfortable the moment you step in the door.
I entered the therapy somewhat nervous and skeptical, soon finding my feet and feeling as though I can confess the world to her without judgement.

I can't recommend Jane's counselling enough, especially if you're shy and not fond of having to speak first or pick topics yourself - you'll very quickly find yourself blabbing away the hours before you even realize it.

Counselling really helped

I was really dubious and going for counselling initially but Jane made me feel totally reassured. Jane is so easy to talk to and is a lovely friendly person. The therapy room was lovely and welcoming and what I would describe the art work as 'a room with a view'.
Jane listened attentively to my story and worries.  She used technique using shells to enable me to visualise  support/friends around me, and to help me open up.   During my therapy I had some time with the therapy animals, which helped me relax and this really cheered me up.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jane as a Counsellor.

Benefical service

Jane is a very welcoming and caring person, who offers a comfortable and safe space. The pets involved in the therapy were friendly, affectionate and easy to engage with.
Altogether a helpful and unique experience I would recommend to others.
