Returning to well-being and wholeness
“There is a crack in everything – that’s where the light gets in.”
In the course of our lives, all of us experience difficult and challenging circumstances, as well as shock and trauma to varying degrees. Very often we have not had the support and care we needed to heal and release these experiences. We then shut out aspects of ourselves in order to be able to meet the demands and challenges of daily life. However, we may still be impacted in various ways such as:
- A need for a high degree of control
- Fear of opening ourselves to others
- Being easily alarmed and triggered into reactive behaviour
- Feeling disconnected from ourselves and others, feeling isolated
- A deep sense of unworthiness or shame
- Inability to form long-lasting intimate relationships
- Difficulty in allowing vulnerability and receiving support
- A sense of there being something fundamentally wrong with ourselves or our lives
The support I can offer you arises from having been impacted in these ways in my own life. I have discovered first-hand what it takes to emerge from a life shaped by traumatic experience to one where I am increasingly free to be myself and recognise the natural wholeness and innocence within me.
I have also studied and trained extensively (see bio page About Janey) over the last twenty five years, and I have learnt so much from the teachers, therapists and healers who have supported me.
I will share with you whatever serves you from all my training, studying and experience, and hold you in tenderness, compassion and strength as you find your own way to the freedom and capacity to love that is your true nature. I offer individual sessions and group work.
“Janey’s presence has been both gentle and strong in supporting me to share what was going on with me. When I had the experience of being terrified and shaking a lot in my body, she guided me and reassured me that I was releasing trauma. She invited me to allow what was going on to be just there, which I did, and she was right there with me.
She has also guided me in an inquiry about the constant inner dialogue that various conflicting parts of me were having and, through the process of recognising the voices within, I was able to see how much power the inner saboteur was having on the more wise and intuitive parts of my being. Janey’s love and passion is awake and evident in her very beingness.” J.W.
“I find you sincere and truthful, approachable and very empowering… I feel that you bring your whole self to the group, and you allow us to see your own struggles and vulnerabilities. I feel I have learnt a lot through your positive example.” L.W.
“I admire the way in which you are able to sense and pick up on the unspoken, and then refer to it in a totally non-threatening way which invites people to say exactly what is going on for them…. I have come to believe more in myself as a result of working with you, so I am truly grateful to you.” S.T.
“I value your warmth, patience and sensitivity – qualities which have helped to create a safe place to express feelings.” S.P.
“During my year with you as a facilitator for our group, I have felt safe. Your ability to see and hear and even feel us as individuals is very nurturing and so helpful in my struggle towards self acceptance and self-love. I have noticed how sensitive and perceptive you are. I also feel you have been very present and alive in the group, although you have never made me feel you had any need to be the centre of attention.” L.G.
“The word ‘encouragement’ often pops up when I think of your approach, and I believe you combine this with compassion and humour.” N.D.
“Let us meet the frozen, fearful places by holding them in
the warmth of tenderness and mercy”
