Jan's Counselling Services

"Talking to Jan helped me to think through my problems and come up with some solutions of my own"

Jan Sims

I started off my career working in pharmacy until my children reached teenage years then I decided to have a career move and began working with families, where I gained my qualification in counselling.

I have now been a counsellor for over10 years, gaining accreditation in 2014. Looking after my own well-being is essential to my work and I do this by making sure that I balance my work and home life. When I'm not working I enjoy spending time with my family, walking my lovely dog, arts and crafts and when time and space permits, some deep breathing and relaxation.

I work from a person-centred approach, offering a safe, confidential and comfortable environment for exploring any challenges or difficulties that you may be experiencing.

I can also offer Animal Assisted Therapy (ATT) with my lovely calm, friendly dog Peggy
