My Service to You

Counselling/Therapy is a process that requires sharing your internal world and carrying out an emotional dig that can take lots of hope and courage.  It is so important to feel safe with the person to whom you can open up to, therefore it is important for you to know who I am, how I can help you, so that you can consider building trust and rapport with me during your inner journey work.  

My name is Mandy Jane, I am a fully qualified and Registered Integrative Counsellor / Clinical Hypnotherapist and I offer you my authentic self with my warm and nurturing nature. I am Your Therapy Godmother.  I will offer you a safe space / environment / counselling/therapy room that can help you to build that rapport with me, to feel you are really being listened to and validated.  I will provide you with complete respect in consideration to what has happened to you in your life to date. 

Together with my support, we can work together to help you gain greater conscious awareness of patterns in your life that may be influencing the way you relate to yourself and others in present times. We can facilitate healing and resolve traumas from the past by finding and working with your wounded and hidden inner child and help you to reconnect all your parts within you to become your true, authentic self.  Working with different parts within you I will help you to re-parent and heal yourself, by bringing mine and your own insights and skills together for us to work with your experiences as I believe that you are the expert of your own life.

  • A therapeutic room that offers confidentiality and safety for your story to be heard for the first time with respect and individuality.
  • I will help you to understand "Why this is happening to me?", "What has occurred in my world to cause this challenge?" and to make that choice of "Do I decide to face it and learn to deal with it?" or "Do I find a way to just close the door and walk away?"

My Own Journey.....

Having experienced many traumas within my own childhood I came to realise, by having counselling/therapy and hypnotherapy myself, that after feeling lost in my late 40s the patterns, coping strategies, defence mechanisms, beliefs and values that I had internalised and developed as a child to keep me safe were no longer working in the way that I needed them to in my adult life. My true authentic self was hidden and my inner child parts of me had been wounded and repressed emotions coming to the surface were now causing me anxiety and holding me back from my real potential in life, causing my self-esteem and confidence to hit rock bottom.

I had always been a confident woman who has worked hard since leaving school at 16, brought up my wonderful family, run my own wedding organising and decorating business for 20 years, now I could not even open a letter, answer the phone, I felt that I needed to hide from everyone and not have to deal with anything. I kept asking myself why had this happened? why do I feel so scared of moving forward, I feel so empty when everything had been so fulfilling before, I was no longer in control and my emotions were all over the place. That sense of loss, of my identity, was difficult to work out. So I sought out the help of a counsellor and hypnotherapist to understand what was happening for me. 

The first sessions were very daunting and I cried all the way to the counselling/therapy room and during the first three sessions, feeling apprehensive, scared and worried about what I was going to find out about myself. What if I found out I didn't really like my true authentic self?

I discovered that I had been repressing and stuffing all my real emotions, my anger, frustrations, grief, loss etc for what had happened to me within my body, deep down within my unconscious and my inner child had been wounded and my true authentic self was lost.  I had in the present time been triggered by events of almost losing my husband to a heart attack and having to give up my business to keep him safe.  Emotions that had been hidden since I was a little girl aged 10 who had just lost her mum.  Emotions of helplessness and feeling out of control from birth had started to surface. 

My emotions from long ago had exploded to the surface, like a lemonade bottle that has been shaken to its core and was now starting to explode out of the top, the top could not go back on as the emotions were raw and needed to be felt, settled and healed in order to put the top back on safely.  So began my own journey learning to heal and re-parent my inner child's past traumas to help release and embrace my new future as a counsellor/therapist and hypnotherapist.
