PERMISSION HAS BEEN GIVEN BY ALL PARTIES TO PLACE THEIR TESTIMONIALS ON MY WEBSITE

SUPERVISION - Student Testimonial


"I have been supervised by Janis since January 2017, and I have to say it has been an absolute joy!  Janis provides the essentials in supevision in terms of considering the therapeutic skills, intervensions, the therapeutic relationship and exploration.  Not only this, but she is extremely encouraging and one of the most down-to-earth people I have met. Janis is approachable, and I feel very comfortable in being completely honest with her in our supervision sessions.  If there are ever any worries regarding my client work, I know that I can contact her and receive a reply quickly,I cannot thank you enough, Janis!"



Client Testimonial

"My name is *** my wife is *** and we have two daughters   ***  14 and ***11.  Last year  *** admitted to having dark thoughts, so we decided to seek some help.  That's when we found Janis who said she would be able to help us."


So our journey as a family began.  On our first visit/meeting  *** was very quiet and she said "that these meetings would never work and she could never get these voices out of her head".  Oh how wrong she would be.  Over the course of months of weekly meetings, all myself and my wife *** will say is "it was a journey that the whole family was involved  in, even *** our teenage daughter who knows everything about everything, learned from this experience.


When  you read about kids going to counselling you think something traumatic must have happened in their life: but this is not the case if our situation is anything to go by.


We as a family were taught by these meetings that sitting as a family talking even doing chores as a family and listening to each other make all the difference.  Now this might sound obvious but it's surprising how many people don't do it. 


We as a family can't thank  Janis enough for what she has done for all of us especially *** who at the last few meetings was laughing and has really came out her dark times and now knows she can talk whenever she feels her mood change which as she becomes a young woman will be many I'm sure.


We as a family ar forever in Janis's debt.


Thank you from us all ***, ****, ***  and ***"


SUPERVISION - Counsellor Testimonial


"Janis has been my supervisor for several years, since she started her training as a supervisor.  (I have also referred child and adult clients to her and had lots of positive feedback).  She has been invaluable as a supervisor - supporting both my professional and personal self as I've been in a number of roles in both private practice and salaried roles. 

(Always gently, or with a wee smile) she reminds me of my skills when I feel wobbly, shows curiosity at the edges of my awareness and basically helps me feel grounded and solid so I can do what I do with love and peace".



SUPERVISION - Counsellor Testimonial


"Working with Janis as my supervisor, I feel safe in the knowledge she exercises great sensitivity in considering the sometimes delicate balance between challenge and support.  This allows me to feel both held within my client work, and challenged to explore areas of personal stuckness which may be hindering my personal and professional development".
