Wellbeing for me revolves around simplifying life…
Finding my own way to Wellbeing has been an interesting journey, which has matured throughout each stage and phase of life. It has been an adventure filled with meaningful moments.
Hi, I’m Jan. A Level 4 Adv. diploma qualified Therapist and registered member of British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I qualified back in 2005. I’ve been a Counselling Lecturer (training others to do what I do) – worked with UK mental health charities and the NHS.
I love travel – new experiences – the stimulation of finding a new way to express myself. To be the never changing aspect of who I am, in an ever changing environment. In movement there is life.In the realm of addiction – I’ve practiced within an exclusive, high end, resort style facility called DARA on the sunshine island of Koh Chang. Delivering one to one counselling – group therapy, education & workshops to high achieving professionals from around the world.Coming back into the UK I’ve practiced within Promis in their Executive Recovery Program: Achilles: A confidential premium “treatment” programme creating, delivering and maintaining well-being strategies on behalf of top performing corporate executives with demanding careers, as well as high functioning athletes, entertainers and other high profile professionals.
Recently I have been a Live In Counsellor with The Kusnacht Practice-one of the world’s finest and most exclusive rehab and mental health treatment centres in, Switzerland.I enjoy imparting the wisdom I’ve gained across the years, for those interested in creating change & living a stimulating life. It has taught me so much through happiness, satisfaction, pain, grief and loss. Sustaining a marriage. Raising a family within community and on the road. Enjoying love, laughter and most importantly, fun.
At 40 I finally completed the dream I’d had since my teens. I travelled across the globe with my husband and children. It created a thirst in me. A desire. A recognition and satisfaction of a need within.I healed wounds. Had adventures. Discovered the world. Explored different places, cultures and ways of being. Enabling me to develop a deeper and more personal relationship with my own psyche. Allowing all our family to become Global Citizens.
I’ve discovered that travel can be really beneficial when intertwined with a therapeutic mind. It stimulates the psyche in a different way. Encourages wellbeing. Brings about psychological growth. Challenges all aspects of enculturation.
It enhanced the understanding of my professional practice as a Humanistic Therapist and allowed me to symbiotically intertwine profession, positive psychology and person.
So here I stand anew. Refreshed.A Therapist who uses blue mind science – positive psychology – humanistic skills, theory and values to work with those wanting to develop good mental health & create wellbeing.
