I am going to start by saying hello I’m Jan and welcome to my very First Blog for The Hove Counsellor. This blog is all about Me and You. I hope by the end of reading it you will have learned some new things about me and gained some reassurance about your own feelings towards counselling.
You may be wondering why I am using my first blog this way when I already have an “about me” page on my website. Well, I’ll explain. Counsellors do not often self-disclose but I believe that for us to connect and build up a trusting relationship it’s only fair that you know a bit about me.
So here goes – First and foremost, I’m a mum to two adult children and a gran’ma to my daughters son who is also an adult. Phew! I’m an absolute foodie and nothing makes me happier than to shop, prepare, cook and eat all types of gourmet nosh. I love a gin or two and particularly enjoy solus moments when I immerse myself in study.
In honour of just moving to the Hove https://new.brighton-hove.gov.uk/ area (which has been my dream for many years) I decided to set up a brand new website which I have aptly named ‘The Hove counsellor’ which will introduce myself to my new clientele as well as promote my talking therapy.
Next I will talk a little bit about you –
I understand only too well that the thought of coming to counselling can bring about an added anxiety on top of your already stressful situation. But … I want you to be assured that after the initial hello you will begin to feel calmer. I will be with you all the way and will help you to relax. You only need to talk about what you want to. There is no pressure to perform and I have no expectations.
I would like to say good bye for now but before you go please subscribe to My First Blog for The Hove counsellor and feel free to copy this post to facebook.
See you soon ….. Jan
