Welcome to Janet Liberato Counselling & Psychotherapy

I provide you with the space to consider and discuss what you feel is causing you concern, stress or distress.  I work with clients who are experiencing a range of issues including; anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, parenting concerns, bereavement (including infant loss), self-harm, low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts and surviving abuse (physical, sexual, emotional, neglect).

I offer you the space to talk freely in a non judgemental environment. My approach to therapy is integrative which means I use three types of therapy: Person-centred, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy; this combination allows us to work with the past, present and provide tools to create a different future. I will work with you in a safe and ethical manner to promote your well-being and you will set our pace and direction.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), a Professional Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society and an Accredited Infant Loss Counsellor registered with the Infant Loss Foundation.

About Me

Prior to training as a counsellor, I spent many years working in the community with individuals, parents and families requiring support. Working with charities such as Barnardo’s and Women’s Aid has given me good insight into how challenging situations can escalate to crisis when there is no professional psychological support available. My experience working in various roles with people in the community means I that I can offer a supportive environment to a diverse range of individuals of varying gender, sexual orientation and cultural heritage.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and Professional Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society. I abide by the professional ethical framework for good practice and offer a professional experience of therapy.
