Hi, I’m Jan Thomson, MBACP.
Welcome to my site.
I am a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor based in South Cambridgeshire. I am also a full member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and as such abide by their Ethical Framework.
I offer a safe place where you can be heard without judgement or expectation. I understand It can be hard to put into words what you are feeling, but with the right support I can help you explore your emotions to make positive changes going forwards.
My aim is to offer a confidential, safe space for adults where you can explore difficulties you are having in your life; whether this is to unlock and work through deep-seated, long standing issues which may have been hidden for years, or to look at a current personal problem and to understand and define the options that are necessary for you to get on with your life.
I offer non-judgemental, confidential support within the therapeutic process. This can help you to develop your own coping skills and to draw on your own resources; allowing you to break negative patterns of behaviour.
Making the decision and taking the first step to seek counselling may feel challenging but regular meetings with a trained Counsellor can help you gain insights and fresh perspectives about what is troubling you. People contact a Counsellor for many different reasons. They may be struggling with emotional issues such as anxiety or depression, or want to pursue personal growth.
Some of the kinds of emotional problems people often seek help with are:
- Feeling stressed and anxious.
- Worried about current Covid events.
- Coming to terms with losses such as bereavement, divorce or redundancy.
- Unable to make or sustain relationships.
- Professional stress and workplace anxieties.
- Difficulties with friends or family.
- Feeling low, lacking self-esteem, or having feelings of being stuck emotionally.
- Destructive patterns of behaviour with alcohol, drugs, food, money, self-harming.
If you are experiencing difficulties such as these, you may find counselling helpful.
Therapy provides a safe and supportive environment in which you can confidentially explore areas that are troubling you, without fear of being judged or criticised. You will then be able to gain greater insight and understanding of the thoughts, beliefs and behaviours that affect your life and relationships.
I am available for online or face to face counselling in CB23 area.
