About Me

" Empathy is communicating that incredibly healing message of 'you are not alone'." Brenee Brown.

My personal qualities of compassion, authenticity, warmth and non-judgment, have led me to train to be a counsellor. They are the cornerstones of how I relate to others.

I am an integrative Therapeutic counsellor, working with Adults 20+, from my private practice in Yateley, Hampshire, in a quiet location with parking. Private practice allows me to provide a safe, nurturing, calm, supportive environment, which facilitates our exploration of whatever is troubling you, whether from the past, present or the future. It allows me to work authentically for you.

The advantage of being an integrative counsellor is that I can bring together the different models of counselling to help me understand your lived experience of your life; this can help me to bring things into your conscious awareness, which can facilitate change. The theories I integrate into my work are, person-centered, Psychodynamic, Existential, Attachment Theory and CBT.


Janet Cox Dip.Counselling, MBACP

I understand that life can be difficult; and sometimes disappointing. I have had real-life experience of dealing with difficulties and have experienced first-hand the value of counselling as part of my training. Counselling really can bring about change in a person’s life; It changed mine. “Who looks outside dreams, who looks inside awakens” – Carl Jung.


I have worked voluntarily for a local youth charity, as a co-facilitator of an anxiety and depression support group for 16-25-year olds. As well as a therapist working with individual young people.

I have worked for 30 years in the field of care in one role or another. The past ten years I have worked in a Psychiatric Hospital.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and fully commit to work wholly with their values, principles and ethics at the heart of my work. I believe this demonstrates my commitment to providing a professional service to my clients, and an endorsement of future compulsory regulation within the counselling profession.

I commit to continue my professional development (CPD) in order to grow my own knowledge and to allow this to inform my client work for the benefit of all clients.

I commit to personal supervision with a qualified counselling supervisor. My own Supervisor is a Senior Accredited member of the BACP. We have a good relationship built on trust and in our meetings, I will bring aspects of my client work, which is non identifiable in order to ensure that I am working authentically for you.
