My name is Jane and I have been counselling, with Rape Crisis, for 6 years.
I specialise in childhood sexual abuse and rape.

It doesn't matter if it was yesterday, sixty years ago or whatever gender you are, I know it can be hard, but with counselling support from me we can take a journey together.
As a counsellor I offer you unconditional positive regard, genuineness, acceptance and caring.
I have worked with clients of varying ages and each person is unique, each one important, but I believe we can all achieve our full potential. Counselling is a process that we enter into, a journey we take together.
