Your Space Counselling is dedicated to supporting the well-being of children, young people and adults in Essex and across the UK.

* Well-being: the state of being comfortable, healthy or happy.
I offer:
At Your Space Counselling, we believe that well-being is a journey not a destination and I am here to walk that journey with you.
I'm Janet, and as a fully trained person-centred counsellor, I aim to offer a safe, welcoming and non-judgmental space for you to reflect on the experiences that have bought you to counselling and the individual way in which these experiences may be affecting your life.

I offer counselling and support to children, young people and adults and am most passionate about supporting those who may have or identify as having a Special Educational Need (SEN) diagnosis, disordered eating, anxiety or are exhibiting self-injurious behaviours.

I work using a variety of mediums, including talking therapy, creative therapy, art therapy and sand tray therapy.

How I work

Picture of me (Janet)

Sometimes life can feel heavy or as though you are stuck, but person-centred counselling can help you to make sense of what's going on and empower you to move forward.
Person-centred therapy places expertise on the client. As your counsellor, I'm there to offer an empathetic environment while you are on your journey towards well-being. Person-centred therapy is flexible, and client led. You decide how to use the space and what is most important for you to talk about in each session.

Our First Session

Children Playing in Sand Pit Puzzle

For many people especially children and young people, starting counselling can be very daunting. Finding a counsellor that you feel safe and comfortable with is important. Once trust is built and confidentiality is agreed, we can look at and work on what stands in the way of your well-being.
I'm a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I work within the bounds of their ethical framework.

Seeking therapy is a sign of strength. It shows that you have decided you are ready for change. Change can be difficult and can bring up a whole range of emotions. I will be there to support you and walk with you on your journey.

"A person is a fluid process, not a fixed and static entity; a flowing river of change, not a block of solid material; a continually changing constellation of potentialities, not a fixed quantity of traits" - Carl Rogers
