Jayne Lewis – Prof.Dip Psy C., MA, MNCS

Member of NCS and PSA Accredited

 

As well as being a fully qualified integrative counsellor my career has involved working with the elderly and Children and young People from birth to 25 years of age in a professional and voluntary capacity. I trained as a Primary School teacher and subsequently worked for Northamptonshire County Council training and supporting childcare providers to offer meaningful provision to support their social, emotional, physical and intellectual development. More recently in my role as a volunteer working with 11- to 25-year-olds it appears many of these pressures come from school, exams, peer pressure, and aspirations for the future. Not to mention the effect Covid 19 has had on their well-being.

 

Being an Integrative Counsellor I offer a variety of techniques. We will always start with a Person-Centred approach to enable us to get to know each other and establish your individual needs. I use the PERMA model, which assumes well-being can be truly met through five avenues: Positive Emotions, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning and Accomplishment.

 

We may then include other therapies, personalised to your individual needs, for example Psychodynamic to explore any past events that may have affected you, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to address any thoughts and feelings that may be holding you back. I believe that relaxation is key to helping to relieve many of these pressures, and with your permission may include some meditation or hypnotherapy to your treatment.

 

Although our initial discussion might be by telephone, I would prefer face-to-face either in person or online, as I believe it helps to build a rapport if we can see each other. Whatever you choose I offer an empathic, safe and non-judgmental environment that enables you to feel self-aware and empowered to make positive changes to your life.

 

I work 9am to 7pm Tuesday to Friday, and 10am to 2pm Saturday. But may be able to be flexible to suit your needs.
