ABOUT ME

My name is Mandy Jane and I am a fully qualified and Registered Integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist and a Clinical Hypnotherapist with EMDR. I'm "Your Therapy Godmother".


My Therapeutic Philosophy and Principles:

“I can offer you a good listening ear. An emotionally warm, nurturing, safe, and secure place to be able to talk about what is happening to you, what is important to you, and what is concerning you that is keeping you “stuck” and not being able to move forward in your life. I can offer you a genuine, non-judgemental attitude allowing you, perhaps for the first time, to express and explore your past, your present, your future, and who your true self is, or will be, without fear of shame. I will be by your side as you go on a journey of personal development. To hold your map when feeling lost whilst you try, but sometimes fail. With the ups and downs, helping you to harness your own ability to emotionally grow to make changes in your own life ”. 


“Learn to heal and re-parent inner past traumas to help release and embrace your true authentic self”

My Story

"I've been on my very own journey.  I still continue every day to learn to heal and re-parent my

inner past traumas and this has helped me to release and embrace my true authentic self".

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 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.  


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/therapy and hypnotherapist.
