Janne is a clinical psychologist specialising in providing counselling services for adults of all ages, couples, parents and adolescents. She has twenty five years experience working as a clinical psychologist in both the private and public sector. She is passionate about supporting people on their journey to improve their mood, manage conflict more effectively, enhance their relationships and overall functioning.
She believes we are energetic beings and our energy needs to be open and flowing to be in balance. Mind and body are very interconnected therefore her approach incorporates a holistic perspective looking at how our mind and body influence each other on the journey to wellness.
I have a warm, compassionate, empathic approach and feel very honoured and privileged to join and hear each persons unique life story and journey to date. I view counselling as an opportunity to think, reflect and understand what needs to change to grow and create some new patterns within ourselves and our relationships to improve our overall well-being. I have developed a saying “we will repeat what we do not think about” so it is easy for us to live our life repeating patterns and keeping us stuck in ways that do not serve us or the others around us well. Alternatively we can change, grow and learn to flow.
My overall aim is to reduce distress and enhance emotional well being and I draw on the teachings of Attachment Theory ( Circle of Security) and the evidence based therapies of Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Dialetical behaviour Therapy including Mindfulness and Breathwork.
I am also well trained in Schema Therapy which incorporates a blend of Attachment, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Psychodynamic Principles to explore a clients unhealthy functioning and relationship patterns. The ability to attach and develop a strong sense of connection to ourselves and to others is developed in our childood and adolescence and continues to be important throughout our lifetime.
I have recently moved to the beautiful Central Coast and look forward to working in the local community. Please contact me if you require any further information and/or if you would like to organise an appointment.
