Welcome to Janet Liberato Counselling

I provide you with the space to consider and discuss what you feel is causing you concern, stress or distress.People make the courageous decision to come to counselling for many reasons. Most people will face challenges at some point in their life, these may involve feelings of stress, anxiety, depression or suicidal thoughts. Life events such as bereavement or relationship difficulties can cause a mixture of feelings that can become clearer through the process of counselling.

I offer a space to talk freely in a confidential and non judgemental environment. My therapeutic approach is Integrative. I use three methods of therapy: Person-Centred, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I am happy to answer any questions about these approaches. I will work with you in a safe and ethical manner to promote your well-being.

It takes courage to make contact with a counsellor, the time must be right for you.

About Me

My history, which led me into counselling, involved working in a professional capacity with Barnardo’s & Women’s Aid. Within these roles I supported individuals, parents and families requiring specialist support. Working with people all of my adult life has given me the opportunity to see the impact on lives (even generations) when no supportive professional psychological support is available.

We all benefit from the opportunity to talk freely and honestly without judgement. Making change in our lives is possible, we first need to know what we want, then explore the steps to get there.

I offer a supportive environment to a diverse range of individuals of varying gender, sexual orientation and cultural heritage.

I look forward to working with you.

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.
